I know it is already a few days in to October, but I wanted to let everyone know, October is Domestic Violence Awareness month. (Visit: http://www.ncadv.org/ or http://dvam.vawnet.org/ for more information)
I have a spouse who treats me with love, support and affection. I am very fortunate in that regard. But I am very aware, due to close friends and family as well as the stories of strangers, that this is not always the case.
For the month of October, I will be donating a portion of my royalties from the sale of any of my Second Chance stories (DIGGIN' UP BONES, HER BEST MAN, A CHANCE OF PACE and A BID FOR LOVE) on the Phaze website to an area women's shelter.
This issue demands more of us than showing our purple ribbons. It demands that we help. And in this time of economic struggle, for many, that just isn't possible for them to give. But a little bit here plus a little bit there times a thousand adds up quick. So give where you can. And if you want to take part in my donation, simply follow the links below.
You all helped greatly in August, with my conservation drive. We can do this together as well ...
Because Phaze gives us monthly stats, it is possible to see what titles sold during October to figure what I need to donate, which is the only reason I exclue Fictionwise and ARe from the factoring. It takes months to get a block or sales stats from them.
Let's make a difference together.
All of the stories can be found on the series page:
