Me and my first book

Supporting A Worthy Cause

On the 19th of October, the Spokane Club’s Valley location will host Rally for the Cure, a tennis themed event to raise funds for the fight against breast cancer.  This is a worthy battle against an insidious foe.  We all know or know of someone who has been diagnosed with, survived, or who has perished from this killer ailment.  While neither had breast cancer, my mother and sister both suffered from other types of cancer when they passed away.  I have a wife and daughter whose health and long happy lives are important to me.  I believe in the cause and hope for a quick and thorough solution to the problem.
           As a self-published author, I’m always looking for places and ways to publicize and sell a few books.  I asked if I could attend, have books available, and donate a portion of any sales to the cause.  My suggestion was enthusiastically received.  I signed up, paid my attendance fee, and will be there next Saturday evening.
           With my entrepreneurial juices flowing, I realized I might be able to contribute more to the fight, and at the same time sell a few more books.  Not only will I contribute to the cause, based on book sales at the event, but every sale that can be documented as taking place during October will count toward my final donation.  For each hard copy edition of Beyond the Ocean’s Edge: A Stone Island Sea Story bought, whether on line, in local stores, or directly from me, I’ll turn over $2.00.  For every Kindle™ or Nook™ edition sold, I’ll donate $.50.  (Please note that this includes any international sales.)
             If you like Age of Sail/Naval Adventure stories with a Science Fiction/Alternate world touch, consider Beyond the Ocean’s Edge: A Stone Island Sea Story. Please pass this on, tell your family and friends, and help me donate a significant amount to the fight against breast cancer.  For more information about the book, and me, the author, please visit my web-site.
