For those that haven’t heard, author Dave Wolverton’s son Ben was severely injured in a longboarding accident a little over a month ago. A number of indie-authors have decided to donate all sales from the month of May to help with his expenses.
I haven’t yet gotten many sales at all, but I’ve decided to join in on this. I know there’s only about 3 weeks left in May but if you were interested in buying my book (in ebook or print), please do so now to help contribute.
You can also contribute directly or buy any of the books linked below.
The following is copy/pasted from the original blog promoting this idea.
Help young Ben Wolverton recover from a bad skateboarding accident by buying books from these authors, who have pledged that all profits from their sales in May, 2013, will go to Ben’s recovery fund:
Nightingale, (sci-fi) by David Farland. David is Ben’s dad, with two books to buy. Nightingale, a speculative fiction book about a young man raised in foster care who learns he can sing and affect evil, and Million Dollar Outlines, a nonfiction book to help writers learn to write better outlines. The books start at $6.99 in pretty much every format.
The Lost Road Chronicles
(ya/speculative fiction) by J. Leigh Bralick, The “Lost Road” Chronicles begin with “Down a Lost Road,” in which a 16-year old uncovers family secrets and gets swept into Earth’s mystical past.)
Books by Briane Pagel. Pagel is the indie author of books like
Eclipse, a harrowing sci-fi story about an astronaut who wanted nothing more than to reach the stars, and did so — but it took murder to get there. Or did it?
the After: Saoirse’s life didn’t begin until she died in a plane crash. But with everything perfect in the After, why is she so unhappy? With the help of a possibly-unfriendly William Howard Taft, Saoirse looks for, in her afterlife, the meaning she never had in her life.
The Scariest Things, You CAN’T Imagine: short horror stories that will leave you lying awake at night wishing you’d stuck with something lighter. Try “The Grave-Robbers,” in which New Sam learns that there have been a lot of prior Sams born to Mom and Dad. And they’re all down in the catacombs…
All these books and more, just $0.99 on your Kindle.
