** Update 8/2014 – Proceeds have been donated, and I am in the process of making the e-book free, and the paper back as cheap as I’m allowed. See my donation post here: Donation of my Proceeds to The Lifeline **
As most of you probably know, I’m donating all the proceeds of the sale of my book to The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. My original goal was to make a donation once I made $100 of sales. I haven’t gotten there yet, but felt I should let anyone who is interested know of my progress. I may never get to that point, lol. 😉
Just so you know how I’m paid, there are two different formats available, a regular print book and a Kindle book. The paper back sells for $9.89 on Amazon, and for each sale, I get $2.29. The Kindle sells for $2.99, and for each sale I get around $2.04. There are some slight differences based on what country it’s sold in and whether it’s borrowed from the Kindle Lender’s library or purchased.

Author Interview: Carrie Lange
Today I have an amazing guest author: Carrie Lange. Carrie’s novel is a heart-wrenching tale of overcoming grief and guilt–a story I will never forget.
Would you mind telling us why and how you wrote the novel? I imagine it must have been a very difficult emotional experience for you. What message do you have for readers?
The book was originally written for my teenage daughter, who began struggling with depression and thoughts of suicide the past few years. In her struggle to understand her own depression, she kept asking me about Dan’s death. Although very young when he died, she loved him very much and had a difficult time understanding his sudden loss. As she grew older, and began to realize what happened, her questions became more pointed. Letting Go first began as my way of explaining to her an unexplainable act.
One of the main characters, and the one readers seem to love the most, Tar, was not a figment of my imagination. My daughter told me about talking to Dan’s friend. She told me Dan wasn’t up in heaven with God, but with his friend, Tar, who was dead too. That night – after watching Galaxy Quest about five times in a row – I had a dream about Tar, which probably explains why he looked like Alan Rickman to me!
My goal with Letting Go is to both prevent suicide and help survivors understand why people become suicidal. I also want to help all people gain a better understanding of the grieving process….
