For a while now, I’ve been trying to come up with a way to make my work serve a purpose beyond entertainment, and I believe I found it tonight.
Within the next month, Beishir Books will launch Books For A Cause on our Facebook page (and eventually on our own website). Each month, we will donate 100% of the profits to a different (and worthy) cause. The causes for 2010-2011 will include:
Epilepsy Therapy Project
American Heart Association
Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International
American Cancer Society
Down Syndrome Association of St. Louis
St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital
ALIVE (Alternatives to Living in Violent Environments)
The Alex Foundation
Save the Manatee Club
World Wildlife Fund
Also, Collin will be producing brochures promoting works by new and promising writers as he prepares to re-launch Beishir Books to focus on book design and packaging for writers who elect to self-publish their books in print and /or e-book format.
I’ll be focusing on finishing the second book in the Chasing the Wind series, An Army of Angels, Same Time Tomorrow, written under my Scarlett Martin pseudonym with James Morgan, and the expanded edition of Final Hours.
2011 looks to be a busy year!
