A friend of my wife’s wrote a short story to raise money to feed hungry people. Today I am sharing Kim’s blog post about this unique way to help a good cause…
“So do you think e-Books will replace traditional publishing of books?” A journalist asked this question as part of an interview for an article she wrote about the book I co-authored with my friend Donna.
I really don’t know the extent to which e-Books will replace hard cover or trade paper books… but I do know how very grateful I am tonight for my friend and author Craig Lancaster for publishing a short story via e-Book this week – and I’m thankful for my Kindle e-Book reader which allowed me to view it.
Comfort and Joy is the title of Craig’s story. And if you get through it without a tear or two dampening your cheek – well – you should change your name to Scrooge and expect a visit from the “Ghost of Christmas What’s the Matter with You?”
One very cool thing about Craig’s story is that it costs just one little ol’ dollar. Just one. That’s it. Less than a large double-double at Timmie’s – and a quarter of the price of a venti-whatever. Craig is going to bundle up all of the dollars he receives from the sale of his e-Book and donate them to Feeding America this Christmas. The great people at Feeding America will take those dollars and provide food to people who do not have food. Simple.
You do not need a Kindle in order to buy Comfort and Joy. You can download it to your computer. Check out Craig’s website and click on the words “Purchase Craig’s Christmas 2010 Short Story.” Go. Now.
~ Peace. Comfort. Joy.
