You may remember that Liz Winters and I were raising money for the Lost N' Found organization in Atlanta, a project spearheaded by Brandon Shire.
Liz has compiled the tally and here's a link to her blog which details the result and the on-going efforts on her part to raise funds.
Bless you all for your generosity.
A new 'brief encounter' from the series. The seventh such story. It's now out in the Kindle Store; here are the links:
These brief encounters are one of my platforms to try out styles and voices; sometimes the result can be quirky and surreal. FOUR ZERO isn't surreal or quirky, well, maybe a little!
I've been wanting to publish the 2nd Edition of The Mouse That Felled The Oak for a while; finally I've got round to it!
This was one of my first short gay romances; published at the beginning of 2013. I have a soft spot for it and many of you have too. I hope you like the new cover design. I have edited the text to remove the awful punctuation mistakes and I've tweaked some of the passages to make them flow more smoothly.
This edition of the story is dedicated to Darla, who is the newest addition to the circle. Welcome Darla!
Here are the links to the Amazon Kindle Store pages:
I am preparing this new edition for a paperback too but it isn't quiet ready yet; I'll blog when it's out on the shelf.
I did some analysis of my Amazon downloads and sales now that 2013 reports from Amazon are through. I wanted to share three numbers with you because they mean something to me and without you, nothing would have happened. Okay, the first number is 30,000; that's the number of books I distributed during 2013. The second number is 1,000; that's the number of books I sold in 2013 (meaning 29,000 were given away for free). The third number is 600 euros; that's the final tally of the royalties earned which all went to charity, the vast majority went to the monastery.
I think of the number in this way; each day at the monastery the food which is needed to feed the monks, nuns and orphans totals 70 US Dollars. So roughly speaking, you fed the monastery for 12 days; no one went hungry. THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART.
In 2013, I donated all of my royalties to 'Maha Sukha', the charity that supports the monastery in Nepal. My goal was to help raise enough money to rebuild the classroom for the children. Through your generosity, I managed to donate 600 euros to the monastery charity.
Details of the ongoing and completed projects are available on the monastery's website - click here.
If you're interested, two friends of mine are planning to take a small group on pilgrimage to the Monastery in November 2014, currently there are still some places open. Contact me if you're interested in the trip which leaves around 1st November 2014
In 2014, with so many causes needing our help, I am still trying to decide where this year's donation will be sent. I'll update you as and when the decision gets made.
'Rock The Cradle' is the single volume that contains the three 'Baby' stories: 'A baby for Felicity', 'A baby for Michael' and 'A baby for Robbie & Jamie'.
Here are the links to the Amazon Kindle Store:
I wanted to let you know about an offer running next week; in fact all week.
'Gone But Not Forgotten', the collection of six 'brief encounters' is on a count down deal from Monday 13th January 2014, all week. Click on the cover image to go to Amazon, but remember, from Monday 13th, put it on your planner!
Part 4 of 'The Map Stick, 'The Way of Water' is nearing completion and that means it should be out sometime this month. If you're a fan of the first three parts and War and Rane's journey, then you won't be disappointed with how part 4 is moving the story forward; please bear with me just a little longer.
'The Transit of Mars' has been made-over, not just for Kindle but for paperback too. The 2nd edition will appear on the shelf within the next couple of days.
