As keener followers will know, I lost my longhaired dachshund and sidekick, Royston, two weeks ago. It’s been a hard loss to take. He was one in a million. I want to mark his passing by doing something special. In his last weeks, he needed a lot of treatment. Luckily, we’ve been able to afford to keep up with the bills but not everyone can. I couldn’t save Royston but I can save someone else. So, in Royston’s honor, anyone who buys a book or download from my Bookshop this week, I will donate 100% of the proceeds to Best Friends Animals Sanctuary. If there’s an out of print title/hardback or any audio book you’re looking, drop me a note, as I may have one hidden away. For the more adventurous among you, you might be interested in one of my famous Mystery Book Boxes. Whatever you want, just let me know. My goal is to raise $500. Whatever the shortfall, I will make up the difference. If I exceed the goal, then I will match whatever is raised dollar for dollar.
Whether you’re a first time reader of mine or you’re looking for a gift for a friend, I hope you’ll take part and help me support a great charity.
Feel to share this post this post online. I’d really like to send Royston off in style. Thanks.
Does this include e-books Simon? I live in Australia, so it would cost you more to post a paperback than the book costs. Of course I could always just donate the cost of the book. I don’t know what I’d do if I ever lost my little Cavoodle, Cally.
Thanks so much, Lyn. It does apply to actual books but feel free to donate direct. 🙂
Okay, I’ve ordered two books, but only send one. The extra can cover the added cost of posting the book to Australia.
Gotcha. Send you an email but you can ignore it now. Thanks.
How can I buy a paperback at B&N and get the donation to you?
Hi Kathleen: If you buy it direct from http://simonwood.net/bookshop/ I’ll autograph it and donate all the money to the Best Friends. If you buy it from B&N, tell what book you bought, I’ll donate my royalty to the total. Essentially, if you buy it from me, more will go to charity. Hopefully, that’s enough arm twisting. 🙂
I would like to make a donation in Royston’s honor, but I have all your books. How can I just give cash?
You can paypal me your donation and I’ll add it the total. Thanks.
Just FYI, I did reach and exceed the $500 goal. I don’t know the exact total as I’m still waiting on a couple of donations, but I will be matching the donations dollar for dollar…
