You're making a difference

Buy a book, make a difference.

That's what my co-creator of this mental health project, Jade Eby and I have proposed to you, our readers.

And you have.

As a writer, my goal in publishing my stories has always been to share a connection with readers. To entertain, to make people think, and to add enjoyment to someone's life. These are some of the things I've dreamed of.

It's also been a goal to help people.

Those things I listed have the potential to do that, but I'm grateful to have the opportunity to use my stories to help people in a different way.

To work with readers to be part of the solution, and that's just what we've done with this mental health initiative.

Jade and I are pleased to report...

Together, over the past 8 months, you've helped Jade and I raise and donate over $600 to Active Minds and The Canadian Mental Health Association



We've taken 50% of the profits of each featured book of the month sold, and donated the money to our respective organizations to help end the stigma surrounding mental health and fund programs and help for those suffering.

This is a cause that is personal to both of us, and you can read Jade's story here and mine here from when we first started this journey in November 2017.

To visit our project's pages, click here for Jade's and here for mine. We both post our individual proof of donation, but otherwise, the pages are almost identical. Our message is the same.

Moving forward, as a small change, our featured books will remain the same for three months instead of the monthly changes that have been made previously. We look forward to our initiative evolving with time and your continued support. We appreciate your purchases, your help spreading the message, and any other efforts to aid this cause.

On a final note, I address those living with mental illness.

You are not alone. There is hope.
