You are now entering the world of my thoughts.

This blog is my diary of works in progress. The only way a writer can improve upon her skill is to practice, practice and practice some more. Here, in this place of quiet peace, I pen to paper my thoughts and creativity. Welcome to my world.

A Cause Worth Reading For!

Hey wonderful friends! Here is a cause worth reading for! Heather McCorkle, author of The Secret of Spruce Knolls, Channeler's Choice, Born of Fire and the newly released, To Ride a Puca has a wonderful giveaway going on! Stop by her blog to check it out AND it is for a wonderful cause........ Here's a little bit of info about her current causes from her blog. :D



The Channeler's Cause is my pledge to improve the world through donations to a fabulous charity that does everything within their power to make the world a better place. From helping endangered species, campaigning to save wild horses, to cleaning up oil spills, working toward renewable energy and educating people about recycling, this foundation does it all. I'm waiting on approval to tell you more details about the foundation and who they are, but hopefully I will get to soon.

The big news is, The Secret of Spruce Knoll is no longer the only book that will be helping this foundation. My entire channeler series (The Secret of Spruce Knoll,Channeler's Choice, and Rise of a Rector) will be donating to the cause. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each of those novels, in every format, will be donated quarterly to the foundation. Any time you buy a book in the channeler series you will be helping to make the world a better place. Together you and I will make a difference.

Cause #2:

This winter Compass Press is releasing an anthology calledWinter Wonders. It will be packed full of stories from fantastic authors. ALL profits will go directly toward a great charity that teaches teens the importance of reading and offers them a chance to win a free college education. What an amazing gift the anthology will make this holiday season!

With the fires raging in CO any thoughts of helping out are local, but I like the sound of these causes too.

Thanks Julie. do you live in or near the fires? I have been keeping up with the news here and it is just so scary watching the footage of the flames! I pray for everyone's safety.

Thank you Julie. My heart goes out to those in Colorado. The wonderful thing about the IS Foundation is that it recognizes tragedies such as that and reaches out in places like that where it is needed. I'm not sure if they will be reaching out to those in Colorado, but it's a possibility!
