Monday's Muse~Fighting Abuse

Last January author Kristie Cook made a pledge to donate $500 to The National Domestic Violence Hotline if any of her books made it (again) to the Top 100 All Kindle Paid titles list. Just a couple weeks ago she announced that she was getting close to selling my 100,000th book and she'd be celebrating in some way or another. And if you've read her first novel, Promise, you surely remember that Tristan wanted to teach a certain wife-beater a lesson.

Rather than waiting to hit the Top 100 list again, Kristie is going to donate that $500 to The Hotline when she has sold her 100,000th book. Sometime this month she'll be clicking that donation button. But she'd love to make it more than $500 and this is where you can help. For every 1,000 books sold past the 100,000 mark, up until July 30, 2012, she'll donate another $100.*

So what can you do? Well, you can...
  • Buy a book, of course, if you haven't read the Soul Savers Series. Remember, Promise and Genesis are only 99c but these purchases are going to a great cause. (And be sure to keep your receipt - see below for why.)
  • Gift any of the Soul Savers books to someone you think would enjoy the series (again, keep your receipt - see below). All the retailers offer an ebook gifting program.
  • Encourage friends to buy any of the Soul Savers books between now and July 30, 2012 (again, see below for a bonus if they do).
  • Tweet, blog, Facebook and otherwise spread the word about the Soul Savers Series, the Share the <3 campaign and/or The Hotline (use #TristanK3 hashtag - Kristie will be checking these out and jumping in as often as possible, maybe even with goodies).
To add to the fun, Kristie is giving away presents!
Email her a receipt for any of her books with the purchase date between today and July 30, 2012, and you'll be entered to win weekly giveaways of signed books by Kristie and various author-friends who have so generously donated (myself included!), as well as to win a grand prize at the end (specific prizes TBD). Gift receipts count!

For everyone who makes a donation to The Hotline for $5 or more and emails Kristie a receipt and their shipping address, she'll send you a 4-pack of Soul Savers bookmarks. For more details see Kristie's site. To help this cause I'm not only giving away books on Kristie's blog, I'm doing my own giveaway right her on my blog. Fill out the rafflecopter below to enter to win a signed paperback of my novella Born Of Fire (also with Born of Fire is Dies Irae, Christine Fonseca's fabulous first novella in the Requiem series.).
