Last year my friend Scott Burtness decided to donate a portion of his Oct royalties from his novel Wisconsin Vamp to the American Red Cross which is awesome, but he didn’t stop there. He invited also other authors to join in. Four authors and a Facebook page later the first annual Vampire Books for Blood was uh… born.
This year not only does he have a website but he’s also included Canadian Blood Services 🙂 If you’d like to participate or support those who are participating check it out here:
I hope to be participating as well, so I asked Scott how tricky it was to join in. He said the steps are:
1- Contact their local branch of the American Red Cross or Canadian Blood Services and set up their own individual donation agreement (3rd party agreement).
He has information about how to do this on his website, it looks pretty straightforward
2- The author submits their book info to the site. I display the book on the site and link to where the book is sold
3- The author promotes the event and their involvement during the month of Oct (#VampBooks4Blood)
4- After Oct 31st, the author fulfills their individual donation to their local Red Cross.
So there you have it. Now I just need to get my butt in gear and do it. How about you? 🙂
The book that started it all…
