It’s been a nice couple of days. Reviews for Unacceptable Risk have been pretty positive so far. And sales seem to be picking up (maybe because the Gay Rom Lit gathering in New Orleans is over; my readers have stopped bar hopping and started buying books again.) Then someone recommended my books to Josh Lanyon on the grounds that I sound a little like him. (Now there’s a compliment!)
And I got to make a donation to The Aliveness Project, one of my favorite Minnesota charities. The Aliveness Project provides support services to individuals with HIV and AIDS in the Minneapolis area. They do very worthwhile work and I’m proud to be a supporter.
So I was glad when Amazon came through with a royalties check for And to All a Good Night. Some of you may remember that when I put that free story up on Amazon, the retailer insisted on charging a minimum of $0.99 for it. I decided to donate the author’s share to charity, until the price dropped to free. And now I have the pleasure of passing that along. Not big bucks (at $0.34 per copy, I was pleased to have topped the $100 mark) but it’s nice to feel something I wrote has done some good in the world.
