As many of you know, each December when I am done talking about my beard, posting quotes, and throwing up drinking and travel pics, I like to donate and inspire my friends, family, and fans to contribute to either the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital or All Children's Hospital.
For anyone that makes a donation above $10.00 I will give you free reading material (blurb at end of post).
Here is how I work it out...
$10.00 = free ebook
$25.00 = free paperback
$50.00 = free signed paperback
Make your donation, then email your receipt to firstname.lastname@example.org
These are great causes and you can't go wrong picking either or both organizations to donate to this holiday season.If you have ever spent time with a terminally ill child you know the help that they truly need. So not only will you be getting a novel of questionable value and my eternal gratitude - you will be making a difference in the lives of the smallest of those that need the biggest kinds of help.
I hope I have the opportunity to give away many books, and happy holidays!
Valid until Christmas Day.
Blurb from The Hundred Heartbreaks of Harlan Halifax:
The Hundred Heartbreaks of Harlan Halifax is a story set in the cornfields of Indiana. In Trinity, Indiana, a small community that is practically owned by the ancient and reclusive Harlan Halifax, young Addison Yates lives in the shadow of the Halifax mansion.
With his mother recently deceased, and a father who is on the ropes financially, Addison's world consists of his friends and an aging farmhand who resides at the Yates home. After an unfortunate lapse in judgement, Addison's path crosses with Harlan Halifax. He learns how the other half lives as well as the secrets behind Harlan's desire to remain a shut-in. Through Harlan, Addison meets an Afghanistan girl who is a refugee from her war-torn country. Captivated by a pair of brown eyes behind a Burqa, Addison is thrust on an odyssey that causes the small events in Trinity to take on a much larger significance.
In this coming-of-age tale, the desperation of poverty meets the legacy of wealth. Youth clashes with age. Knowledge battles ignorance. Friendships attempt to withstand abuse, prejudice, and loss.
In a world ripping at the seams, Addison learns of love's many forms, while also awakening to the hatred that ignorance can breed.
This is... The Hundred Heartbreaks of Harlan Halifax
