Donations to help victims of domestic violence
www.writersout.com/user/354 is my page on a site called Writers Out. I could not have created the page without the gracious assistance of Inbal Gould. My novel Stillbird, which is a myth-like treatment of a multi-generational cycle of violence against women is no longer available as a trade paperback book but it can be downloaded from my writersout page for $5. For every 10 downloads of Stillbird I intend to donate $25 to a local shelter that offers shelter and other kinds of assistance to battered women and also has space for them to bring their pets (many women are afraid to leave an abusive situation if it means leaving a beloved family pet behind to face abuse). They are called A Rising Hope. I just recently learned about them from one of my daughters who received an email about an upcoming fundraiser.
