Think Pink--Breast Cancer Research fundraiser

In honor of my mother, a breast cancer survivor, as well as my wife and daughter, all author proceeds from sales of October Girls from Oct 25-Oct 31 will benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. I hope to raise $100, which isn't much, but I've been very fortunate with success and I am grateful for it. This is my opportunity to share.

Yes, I know men can get breast cancer, too, and I like to wear pink myself, but this is a way to honor all those wonderful women out there who raise children, hold communities together, offer compassion and guidance, and generally make the world a worthwhile, magical place. I hope you'll join in, whether by buying October Girls or by donating directly to BCRF, or launching your own fundraiser.



Here's my mom at 16, holding the family musket and powder horn (yes, they are real.) Thanks, Mom, for having me, raising me, and putting up with me.

Scott, I just went over and bought the book. It looks really good.

My best friend is a breast cancer survivor, so I try to do what I can for research.

Does it matter if it's purchased directly from you (via Paypal) or from Amazon?

I'll be picking up a copy later this week.

No, Neal, all streams are good--I can track all of them. Purchases directly from my site yield a larger cut of proceeds, though.

Thanks for your support, Laura Lynn.

Thanks again Scott. I'll be getting a copy soon as my cash flow problems may be changing soon. But anything you can, or we all can do, to help is appreciated by me for sure. I've seen the good and evil that surrounds this cancer. You're part of the good.

I already own an ebook version but just ordered the paperback at your website in honor of my sister and one of my closest friends who both died of breast cancer. I love the cover and it will make a great gift. Thanks for doing this!

Great cause, Scott. Hope it's going well.
