My total donation to The Hotline:
($500 for my 100,000th book sold + another $1,100 because you guys bought another 11,000+ books in July!)
Donations to The Hotline by readers (at least those who sent me receipts):
Our total fundraising efforts:
I told you that you guys rock. *big grin* I'm so proud to call you friends. *bigger grin*
I owe many of you bookmarks and coozies for your donations. Please be patient - I'm still working hard on getting Power ready to release later this month, so pretty much everything else has been back-burnered (it's nothing personal - just ask my kids). I'll get everything out at the end of the month or early September.
In the meantime, I'll continue taking receipts for donations to The Hotline in exchange for swag. Email me your receipt of your donation and I'll send you bookmarks.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and The Hotline has asked me to get involved. I'm so excited about this! So stay tuned to see what we have planned to help raise awareness for this important resource. Everyone deserves to feel safe in their own home. (If you're an author and would like to get involved, please email me.)
Thanks again, everyone! I have the best readers and friends!
