I'm very happy to have Kim Fielding on my blog today. She's having a very busy fall publishing wise and is here to tell us all about it. You've seen her here before (and probably my reviews of her wonderful books), and one of them has royalties going to a charity that means a lot to both of us, Doctors without Borders. I had wanted to join them once I had enough experience to feel comfortable in that sort of situation (or if not them, other medical relief groups) but that never came to be so I'm thrilled to see Kim donating the royalties to this great cause. Let's welcome Kim.

Hi! I’m Kim Fielding. I have FIVE (!) new releases out right now. Today I’d like to talk about one of them, The Festivus Miracle . Here’s the blurb:

It’s finals week during Tony McNeil’s second year in law school, and he’s struggling to keep up. Frankly, he’d rather be cooking. Then he meets first-year student Eddie Cohen-Fernandez, who’s heartsick over missing his family’s annual Festivus celebration. Tony can use his culinary skills to lift Eddie’s spirits, but finding long-term happiness? That just might require a Festivus miracle.

It’s a sweet and romantic holiday story, which is always a good thing, I think. But here’s the most important thing: I’m donating all my royalties from this book to Doctors Without Borders . In fact, I donate the royalties from all my self-published books (Stasis, Flux, Equipoise, and Joys R Us) to this organization. Last year I gave them $3000. Maybe not a fortune, but hardly pocket change either. I’d love to be able to top that amount this year.

Doctors Without Borders is an amazing group. They provide critical medical care to people in 70 countries around the world. They often work in war zones, which means their volunteers put their own lives at risk. And 87 cents of every donated dollar goes directly to their programs—meaning donated money is going where it will do good, and not to bloated administrative or fund-raising costs.

I have no medical training. Even if I did, I don’t know if I’d be brave enough to be a DWB volunteer. But at least through my book sales I can help fund their efforts. And so can you!

I really hope you’ll buy The Festivus Miracle. You’ll get a nice little treat for yourself, and your money will be helping others in need. I also hope you spread the word. You can preorder the book; it releases November 1.

And aside from Festivus, I have four additional new releases. I’m doing a Fieldingpalooza tour, complete with prizes. You can find all the details on my website. Please come join me!

Your Festivus book sounds absolutely adorable, which is appropriate for the season. Good luck with your sales, and I have to admit, I think it's amazing what you're doing with your self-pubbed novels.
