The news of the fires in the Napa County area of California touched my heart, especially given that it’s so close to home and I have friends who have friends/relatives who have lost their homes. I wanted to do something to help. I’ve given some on my own, but I can only do so much. So, given that I don’t have a huge surplus of money to be able to donate on my own, I decided to put together a little fundraiser for the cause!
From Monday, November 6th, to Monday, December 4th, I will be selling my first novel, Keep No Record, online for $5 per copy. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Napa Valley Community Disaster Relief Fund! Given that Amazon takes a large chunk of royalties when I sell through them, I’ve decided for the purpose of this fundraiser, I am going to sell my book here, through my blog, in the form of a PDF, MOBI, or EPUB file. Payments will be made to me, through PayPal, and at the end of the fundraiser, I will donate all of the proceeds to the charity in one lump sum.
So, if anybody is interested in buying my book for $5, to help assist in the fire relief efforts of Napa Valley, please email me at email@example.com to receive my PayPal information and discuss what type of file you would like your copy of the book to come in. Just as a disclaimer, I will note that I don’t know much about how MOBI and EPUB files work, but as far as I know, MOBI files are compatible with iBooks, and EPUB files are compatible with Kindle. I will provide a link below with some more information on that. You’ll have to do your own research on how that all works, or else opt for the PDF. (I would recommend the PDF anyway, given that it’s been recently updated for some grammatical errors.)
If anybody reading this would like to donate on their own, without purchasing my book, here’s a link to the donation information: www.napavalleycf.org/fire-donation-page
To find more information about my book, go here: Keep No Record on Amazon
But do NOT purchase the book through Amazon, if you want proceeds to go toward the charity.

Please feel free to share this post and get the word out! I will make another post when the fundraiser has concluded, to share how much we were able to raise for the California Fire Relief! 😊
