As an author of Christian historical romance, I have a special request for all of you. Our school is participating in a service learning project for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital from October 11th -November 11th. I am donating 40% of all my book sales during this time to St. Jude. Our students participate in the St. Jude Math-a-Thon each year, and even though we are a Title 1 school, our students have raised over $33,000. for St. Jude in the last 10 years. I know there are many schools that raise this much in one year alone, but most of our students live at or below the poverty level, so it is amazing to me how much they truly care and give of themselves. This year 139 students have chosen to forgo their prizes and donate 100% of their donations to St. Jude. You can order a signed copy of my book by e-mailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org and 40% of this sale will be donated to St. Jude Hospital. You can also donate directly to our school at mathathon.org by selecting Berry Elementary School in Arlington TX 76010.
On another note, for those of you new to my blog, I've included a couple of recent reviews of Moon Dance ~ a novel
* Susan K. Earl’s characters in Moon Dance were so vividly described that I found myself wanting to go back a page or two to see a picture of a previous scene, but that scene was only in my mind! It was almost like watching a movie of these two poor families who were brought together by their children’s love for each other. Both families lived their faith in God and shared that faith with others. The time setting of the Great Depression allowed us to learn how the families coped during hard times and how they relied on neighborly love and God. The lessons taught in this beautifully written romance can and should be lessons we are teaching today in our families. — Linda Duff Niemeir, Co-Author, Sharecropping in North Louisiana: A Family’s Struggle Through the Great Depression
* I loved this book…It has great character development and a great story that kept my interest, in fact, I couldn’t put it down- I read it in one night! The love story is sweet, and how the characters dealt with hard, lifelike problems was touching to me. I really enjoyed it! ~ Jennifer Neher
