1. 43% of the way there!

If you look to the far right of this page (the actual page, not the email), you’ll see that I updated the progress meter. As of July 8, we are at $2,150 and some change! I was excited (and nearly blown away to the point of swooning) when I calculated this. I do have to admit the majority of this money is from Barnes & Noble where that book has spent the entire month of July so far in the top 25 of all NOOK Books, something I never thought I’d ever see.

2. I have updated the previous post to include more links.

It was brought to my attention that I neglected to put the link/rate to Apple’s iBooks on the last post, which I know has discounted the book to .99. Also, I temporarily forgot that I have this book listed at All Romance eBooks, so I’ve added that link, too.

3. Other ways to donate?

Some have asked about a straight donation since they already own the book(s). Absolutely.

If you already own the book, you can “gift” it a friend, or even more direct, use the button in the sidebar to make a donation.

4. More of the Banks Brothers!

I was emailed yesterday and asked for the release schedule. I do have one, but it’s very tentative and could likely change when the school year starts and life gets hectic. But as of today, I’m shooting for Sept. 14 for John and Carolina’s story.

  1. Yay, for being almost halfway there!
    I had noticed I kept seeing “Sudden” advertised on my Nook Color and I did see it listed as a top book the other day. I was so proud of you. I was wondering if it was due to your Lady O. interview. You know I love all your books but that one to me was such an emotional book, with Caroline’s past and Edward’s illness, but at the same time it had me laughing out loud as well. It also has one of my most favorite scenes, one which you revisit in the epilogue of “Contract”.
    I had to laugh when you said that life gets more hectic when school starts. I feel that life is more hectic when the boys are home in the Summer. I enjoy my 7 hours of quiet when 3 of the 4 are gone to school.

    1. I have no idea what it suddenly caught notice over there, but I won’t complain. I don’t know if it was the price drop or the guest blog, but something sparked it, then suddenly it just took off!

      It’s one of my absolute favorites, too. I’m so much like both Alex and Caro that I can’t help but like them.

      For me, life gets more hectic when the kids go to school because mornings are nuts with trying to get them up, dressed, fed and out the door by 7:20 then I have to drive them 30 minutes to school–then come home. Then pick them up again in the afternoon. Plus, my husband and his whacky schedule. Somedays he’s back home by 3, somedays, it’s noon. When he’s home I don’t get near as much done because he’ll ask me 100 questions because he thinks that since I’m just typing on the computer that it’s a perfectly fine time to ask. Men. LOL

      The scene where Alex and Caroline are dancing at their wedding is your favorite?

      1. I love when they are dancing and see Regina and Edward holding each other and just swaying. I was so happy you put that in the epilogue of this book in their perspective.

        The one thing I hate about school is getting up everyday at 6:20 to get them ready for the bus at 7:10. This year I might be needing to actually take and pick them up. My 7 year old has gotten to ride the special ed (short bus) with his brothers the last 2 years but he may not be able to this year. They attend a different school than the school for our neighborhood because that school did not have an autism program. When my 7 year old started kindergarten we open enrolled him in the school the Twins go to. Anyway, this year may be more hectic than past years if I do have to transport them myself.
        Also my 2 year old will be going to a special needs preschool when he turns 3 in October and I will be driving him as well.

        Oh and even though I am not a writer, I too get less done when my husband has a day off during the week.

      2. I knew before I started writing the book that I’d have their epilogue be while they were dancing at Alex’s wedding.

        Sadly, I think we ALL get less done with our husbands around. It’s like one of those irrefutable laws of nature.
