Great, great news about a promise I made back in December! If you recall, Bella Books offered a free holiday gift to its customers, a copy of Photographs of Claudia, and I pledged all of the royalties to the GCLS & Lambda Literary Foundation. I figured it would be a few hundred…
Because of you & Bella Books, I was able to make donations this week — $1,124 to EACH of these important literary organizations. OUR literary organizations, the ones that honor & promote our books and hold our book communities together. Thank you for answering Bella’s offer and making these two gifts possible.
Coming up soon, I’ll be doing the Cocktail Hour with Andy & Cheri the Rev. It’s a podcast and we’re set to record on Saturday, April 20th, but you can participate by calling in to record a comment or question in advance, or by posting comments afterward. I’ll be giving some books away — TWO autographed sets of the 4-book Shaken Series. Those details will be posted once the podcast becomes available for download. If you want an example of what’s coming, check out their archives (right hand column of their home page, about halfway down).
Finally, time is running out to win an advance copy of West of Nowhere. You can enter the drawing by making a donation to the Lambda Literary Foundation before midnight on Monday, April 8th. Any donation of $10 or more gets you entered; $150 guarantees you a book. Click here to read about our campaign and make your donation, or just click below to read my previous blog post. Thanks to all who have donated already! You guys are truly the best.
