This morning I have a special treat. A fellow author is finishing up her blog tour and is here to share with us. I love authors who donate to charities, and Brenda is one of those authors. I hope you enjoy her post.
Good morning, Steena. I just popped in to say hello. As you know, I’ve been promoting my book, Love To The Rescue, with a blog tour for the past two weeks and today is the final day. It’s been a blast.
Perhaps your readers are curious as to how this book evolved. Several of my fellow authors, Steena included, have written books and shared their royalties with a charity or cause dear to their hearts. I contemplated what charity felt most meaningful to me. I recalled seeing traumatized pets roaming the streets during a devastating disaster like a tornado or a flood. And unfortunately, there are thousands of animals abused by their owners or dumped and left to fend for themselves every year. As I aman unabashed dog lover, especially of my sweet little Kelly, the initial plot for Love To The Rescue popped into my head.
I enjoyed writing this contemporary romance, described as a feel-good read, featuring a rescue dog as a secondary character. Rover is a real darling, and I fell in love with him while writing the book. Some of the readers have mentioned falling in love with him, too. And I’m sharing 50% of my royalties with Humane Society shelters to contribute to their worthwhile cause.
I know my contribution will help these mistreated animals, and I encourage everyone to volunteer their time or make a monetary donation to their local animal shelter. Thank you for your support! Every hour and every dollar counts!
And thank you again, Steena, for allowing me to visit today.
