Two summers ago, I worked with a group of thirteen amazing authors to put together a book with the goal of raising money for Scares That Care. Here is their mission from their website:
“Scares That Care is an approved 501(c)(3) who fights the REAL MONSTERS of childhood illness, burns and breast cancer by helping families that are experiencing these extraordinary hardships cope with the financial burden.
Our non-profit organization provides money, toys and other items to help sick children. We have two other programs consisting of “Scares For Pairs,” where we help women fighting breast cancer and partnered with horror icon Kane Hodder for the “I Helped Kane” program, where we provide assistance to those children who have suffered serious burn injuries.
We are a 100% VOLUNTEER organization in order to maximize our supporters donations to those who need it”
Each author wrote a chapter building on what the previous chapter’s author had written. John Everson started the book off with a twisted bang followed by Jason Darrick, Dan Dillard, Charles Colyott, Dale Eldon, James Garcia Jr., Matt Schiariti, Anne Michaud, Rebecca Besser, Armand Rosamilia, Jon Olson, myself, and Julianne Snow. Together we weaved a tale of freaks, love, murder, and redemption. Together we wrote for those that Scares That Care helps. All royalties from the book go directly to Scares That Care.
July is coming up and Scares That Care is holding their convention, Scares That Care Weekend, July 24th-26th at the Double Tree Hilton in Williamsburg, VA. For more information about the convention please go here and check it out.
In time for the convention, I am pleased to announce that the first donation has been made to this great charity. So, summer is here and you need something to read right? Why not pick up an amazing read from some superb authors and help make a difference in a family’s life in the process. Help us make a difference! You can grab a copy at Amazon, Createspace, Smashwords, and Barnes & Noble (Nook).
On behalf of the Carnival Thirteen Collective, have a great summer!
