Morning all! In case you missed the big announcement yesterday on FB, twitter & instagram, here’s a blog post about it!
For those of you who don’t know, I LOVE to run. It’s an obsession of mine. April 15 will mark the one year anniversary of the bombings at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. This tragedy effected me personally, as I went to college in the Boston area and am an avid marathoner.
As a runner, you train for months just so you can cross the finish line of whatever race in a relatively upright position. When I heard news reports of what happened at the Boston Marathon last year, I felt completely helpless. I have so many friends who still live in the city and are runners, and all I want to do was get on a plane from LAX and hug them.
This tragedy impacted the running world greatly, and me. So as my way of giving back to the city of Boston, the running community, and the victims of that tragic day who may never be able to run again, this Saturday at the North Shore Author Signing in Peabody, MA, I will be donating 100% of all of my sales to The One Fund.
Tickets for this event are sold out, but don’t worry. If you’re unable to make it, I’ll be making another announcement on Saturday of a way you can help give back the week of April 13th – 19th and it will make donating all my sales during the signing PALE in comparison… (100% of all sales through all retailers for the entire week… Just saying’!)
So for those of you who have tickets, stop by and see me. Grab a book or two and help to give back to the amazing city of Boston. I’ll only have about 50 books with me, but I will have order forms so that you can order books and have them shipped to you. Every dollar I take in on Saturday will go to The One Fund, no matter whether I have to ship the book out to you or not.
As always, thanks for your support!
