My second favorite day of the year is the day I present a check to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southern Minnesota for all the money I generated through my book sales in the previous calendar year. I’m proud to say I blew my old annual donation record out of the water! And it’s all thanks to the hundreds of individuals who bought one or more of my books, or recommended them to a friend, or made a free-will donation with or without buying a book. THANK YOU!
It’s been an amazing journey, especially considering I had no idea ANYONE might be interested in buying a book I’d written (except for my immediate family and a few friends). But after seven years, three books (and counting), and almost 2,500 books sold, I am so grateful to all who took a chance on an unknown author and helped support BBBS. Here’s a copy of the press release in my local paper to show you once again that I put my money where my mouth is.
