A writer who gives up all of her royalties on a novel to help a wonderful and much needed charity.
The charity is called ALSO Out Youth. They strive to end all forms of violence, harassment and discrimination based on real or perceived sexual orientation or gender identity. Their mission is to enhance self-esteem, promote healthy dialogue, and increase awareness of sexual minority issues.
ALSO Out Youth provides many direct services, including peer support services, social activities, educational programs and workshops, advocacy, and referrals for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersex, and questioning youth ages 13 to 21, their families and friends, and the community.
See what I mean? An amazing charity!
And the author in question is my equally amazing friend, Kim Dare. She'll be sending all royalties from her November release, Touching Wood to ALSO Out Youth. I hope you'll consider helping by purchasing a copy of her book.
Here's the Blurb:
It’s been quite a while since Ross and his master, Harry, have had time to go down into their basement play room and have some fun together. That’s about to change.
Everyone knows that touching wood can bring a person luck and Ross needs all the luck he can get tonight. Failing to touch wood isn’t an option—but when a man is bound and helpless it isn’t necessarily easy to succeed either.
