As you may or may not be aware, I currently donate 10% of all of the royalties I receive from Balance (The Divine Book One) to the Humane Society of the United States (over $700 through this July). I don't do it as an incentive for people to buy my book, but because it's something I believe in, and I want to give back what I can. I'll be choosing charities for every book I publish, until I can't manage the list anymore, at which point I'll just send more to the ones I've already chosen. In any case, for Betrayal I've selected two charities, both of them involved with animal welfare, and more specifically for the cause of helping wild bears. Why two? Because I promised my wife I would donate to the WSPA (warning, bear baiting is graphic), and because we also want to support Animals Asia, who are working to end the practice of bear bile farming. I will likely use the same charities for Book Three, to get them both up to 10%, but I didn't want to wait to start giving to both.
If you have a minute and a love of bears (or just hate to see any living thing suffer), please visit the sites and consider donating as well.
Betrayal will be available on Amazon in July.
