This is a day that means a lot to me. Â Spirit Day, Purple Shirt Day, Support LGBTQ Youth Day, however you want to call it, it’s a day that both reminds me of how my oldest child struggled with coming out, with bullying at his school, and how many kids around the world face this every day. Â It also gives me hope, because my second child–while still facing the struggles that so many youth face as LGBTQ–and her girlfriend faced a wave of acceptance.
It gets better? Â It’s GETTING better, but that’s because of supportive folks like yourself and GLAAD’s drive to educate the public.
So here’s where you come in: my publisher, an LGBTQ publishing house, is not only dropping the price of all books today by 25%, they will be donating $1 to GLAAD for every book, print or electronic, sold today.
And I’m matching dollar for dollar for any of my books purchased. That’s a price cutÂ and $2 to a terrific organization, their purpose to help make life better for the queer youth of today and tomorrow. Â All day, until midnight PST in the US, so grab my book, someone else’s book, get involved with IP’s direct donation link, just show your SPIRIT!
Edit: Aww, heck, let’s throw in BITTER SPRINGS, too. Â All pre-sale purchases today will add to my Dollar Matching. Let’s get to raising funds! â¤ï¸Ž
