Disaster Relief Announcement

John Herrick, the author of From the Dead (reviewed here) , is donating 100% of his author earnings from the Kindle sales of his book toward disaster relief. He will run this campaign until June 10, 2011.

The following is from his e-mail to us:

As a St. Louis resident, my state and others across the nation have experienced an onslaught of disaster, including floods and tornadoes. As I write this message, news footage of the Joplin, Missouri, tornado is mind-boggling and the deadliest U.S. tornado in more than 50 years.

For years, part of my attraction to writing books was the hope that I could encourage people and help charity projects. This is my first real opportunity to put it into action. I will donate my Kindle earnings to Service International, a St. Louis-based relief organization. I have participated in Service International projects in the past, have seen its impact firsthand, and believe in it firmly.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

All best,

John Herrick

The book is currently listed for 99cents. Why not pick up a copy for a great cause!
