Writing is many things for me.
It’s fun. That’s a given. I love creating crazy characters and putting them in impossible situations. Then heaping more trouble on them.
It’s an escape. I love the paranormal genre because it takes me out of the daily routine. The impossible happens and become reality. I love that. Don’t get me wrong, I have an awesome (not perfect, but awesome) life. But escaping to alternate worlds through writing and reading is fun to do!
I could go on, but you get my drift….But what I love to see is something like this:
Proceeds from sales of END: AN APOCALYPTIC ANTHOLOGY will benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, which ensures children with cancer
and other catastrophic illnesses can get treated regardless of their ability to pay.
How freaking awesome is this? Yes, I know one of the authors, so I’m partial to this publication, but still. The idea that the proceeds will go toward St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is inspiring.
On my personal blog yesterday one of my characters featured a character from one of the stories in END. CLICK HERE to check it out. The author is even having a giveaway for a copy of END. But you should still buy one even if you win.
Have you guys seen/heard of other writers (or groups of writers) doing something like this? Using their writing gifts to benefit an organization? Do share, I’d love to hear about it!
Have a super day, everyone.
