For each copy of Earths in Space sold 9/27, 9/28, and 9/29/13, I will give my cut to the Red Cross. The e-book costs $1.99, and I usually get $0.70 from each download. This weekend only, I’ll give that $0.70 to the Red Cross, multiplied by the number of copies sold, plus whatever I need to add to round up to the next $5 increment.
There is one flaw in this plan, though. My distributor, Bookbaby, has a two-month delay in reporting sales. But we can get around this. Please send me a FB message, tweet to @DanielSherrier, email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or comment letting me know about your purchase. That way, I can go ahead and make the donation on Monday. I promise not to collect any email addresses. We’re all on the Honor System here.
I have not been in touch with the Red Cross about this. I simply plan on making an online donation first thing Monday morning.
Am I hoping this will bump up my sales ranking? Of course, but I will also enjoy being able to toss a few bucks to a charitable organization, and I hope you‘ll enjoy Earths in Space. Everyone wins.
