Prose and Cons to release on December 6, 2016 will be my twentieth published mystery. Twenty books in six years. That is an incredible statistic, and one I would have never had reached if hadn’t been for the kindness of others. To honor and celebrate everything that my friends, family, and my amazing readers have done for me to make this impossible dream come true, I am hosting the Prose and Cons Giveback for those in need.
Preorder or purchase any edition of Prose and Cons between now and Tuesday, December 20, 2016, and I will donate one dollar for every book sold to a local food pantry, The Landing, located in Akron, Ohio. My brother and sister-in-law, Andrew and Nicole Flower, manage the Landing in the basement of Akron Christian Reformed Church with a group of dedicated volunteers. The food pantry feeds over sixty families in the church’s neighborhood on $200 a week. The money raised will go towards the purchase of an industrial refrigerator, so that the food pantry can store more food longer for their families. You can learn more about the Landing in this article and video in the Akronist.

This is a fantastic reason to pre-order your book. I have had times when I had to go to different churches to get food to put on our table. Thank you for the opportunity to help a church.
I usually purchase through iBooks/iTunes….still count? If not, I can buy through Amazon.
Yes! All purchases from all vendors count. Thank you so much!
Done! Looking forward to reading Prose and Cons. And very appreciative of the opportunity to help you give back to community. Of course, librarians do give back to their communities on a daily basis. That is why I currently have a houseful of cats. 3 rescues of my own Tyler Rose, Maggie Mae, Webster Alvin & 2 fosters: Dewey & Diego (if I keep them Diego will become LC) 😉
Wonderful! Thank you so much!!
As someone who finally got out of a very abusive marriage , I want to thank you for such a kind, compassionate act ,to help those in need in this manner. I basically had to run for my life,with nothing but a single suitcase and my 20 year old kitty in my car at two in the morning. I left everything I had worked so hard for, but my life was all that mattered. I drove as far away as I could with only 1300$ in my pocket to start my life over in another state. I had enough money for a month of rent and began looking for a job on the second day after moving into my small but safe,apartment in a new city. I had no family to turn to,and I had never needed to ask for help before. But had it not been for the local food pantry, I couldn’t have made it. I have never looked back,and I am finally working my way back up and out of my frightening past. I have hope again, and I will forever remember the wonderful people who cared enough to help me with food and personal items while I got back on my feet. It’s a humbling experience, but those volunteers cheered me on! They even made me a thanksgiving bundle, since I arrived in my new home state three days before the holiday. They even provided a bag of food for my.kitty. Cheers to you for doing this. I’m going to pre-order my copy today!
Laurie, Thank you so much for your note! I’m so glad that a local food pantry made such a difference to you. Thank you for sharing your story.
