Holiday Blog Hop: Dec 10th – 14th

I know, I know, this blog is pretty awesome, huh? Giveaways, sales, all kinds of fun all the time!

This is a pretty big post, and there are basically two parts to it.

First, I want to give you a chance to enter the Holiday Blog Hop both for my giveaway and the giveaway for the grand prizes (huge ones!)

Second, I want to highlight a fundraiser I’m doing on December 11th and 12th for Mukhtar Mai Women’s Organization in Pakistan. On those two days, I will donate a portion of my profits to this organization that fights for women’s rights and education. There is no purchase necessary for entering the giveaway, but please consider it. I have quite a few books available for 99 cents (including a few involved with Winter Escapes), and for every sale, I can donate 35 cents to this amazing foundation. Think about it and read more about it below, after the entry form for the giveaway 🙂

December Fundraiser

December 11th and 12th, I will donate a portion of my sales profits to Mukhtar Mai Women’s Organization in Pakistan.

– For 99 cent books, I will donate 100%. On most retailers, this is 35 cents. On Smashwords, it’s about 65.
– For all other sales (anything above 99 cents, any paperbacks, etc), I will donate 50%

Mukhtar Mai is an amazing, resilient woman from Pakistan who was gang-raped in a Pakistani court for restitution for her brother’s alleged sexual crimes. Although everyone expected her to kill herself, she went to the police instead. Although she still hasn’t received justice, she started an organization for women and girls. Mukhtar Mai Women’s Organization runs schools for both boys and girls, a women’s shelter, and a resource center. They advocate for women’s rights around the world in conferences and in the community.

I only plan to donate profits from December 11th and 12th, but if you’re here on the 10th or 14th and you’re moved to buy a book, just contact me and let me know what book you bought and where! I will be sure to add that book to my counts for December 11th and 12th. You can find links to purchase my books all over this website, but here are some quick links to author profiles on retailers:

Amazon
Barnes & Noble
Smashwords

(Please keep in mind when you’re shopping: I don’t see any of the profits from the two anthologies from Chamberton Publishing: Gaslight and Love, Me)
