June 16, 2010 was a monumental day in my life. It was the release day of Maid of Murder, my very first mystery novel. The book went on to be nominated for an Agatha Award for Best First Novel, attracted the attention of the world’s best literary agent, and led to the release of twelve more novels over the next five years. I can never express how grateful I am for that day and everything that came after because of it.
When I was a little girl I wanted one published novel with my name on it. Nothing more, nothing less. It has become so much more, and every day there is a new surprise, which leaves me humbly thanking God for every blessing and challenge it brings.
To celebrate the fifth anniversary of this great day, I have decided to donate all of the royalties that I earn June 1, 2015-September 1, 2015 from the two novels in the India Hayes Mystery Series, Maid of Murder and Murder in a Basket, to charity. There is no better way to celebrate my 5th anniversary as a published author.
After the great success of The A Plain Malice Giveback last fall, I have chosen another local charity close to my heart, The Charitable Pharmacy of Central Ohio. My dear friend Mariellyn Dunlap Grace, who has been with me every step of the way through my writing/publishing roller coaster, works for the ministry as Patient Services Coordinator.
The Charitable Pharmacy of Central Ohio provides free medications to low-income, uninsured, and under-insured residents of Franklin County, OH. Since opening on February 26, 2010, the Charitable Pharmacy has served 4,250 patients and dispensed over 200,000 prescriptions valued at more than $17 million. All the money raised will go to this worthy cause.
The cost of all ebook editions of both novels is $1.99!
