Heather's Generosity

This is a special cover. Find out why below.

“There was a sensual feel to the way Aiden's eyes traveled over her, leaving her tingling without even a touch.”

Heather McCorkle, The Secret Of Spruce Knoll

1. Heather McCorkle has a debut novel

2. The book sounds amazing. Read about it HERE.

3. She’s gotten her publisher to agree to use sales of her books to raise $ for CHARITY!

A special edition of Heather McCorkle’s The Secret Of Spruce Knoll is releasing from Compass Press this month and she’s doing a special tour to go along with it. The special part, a percentage of the proceeds from every special edition sold (in every format) between its release date and 12-12-2012, will go toward Heather’s favorite charity that protects endangered species. Her goal is to make at least $10,000 for the charity.

Of course there are prizes during the tour, which is from December 1st through the 17th. Prizes include a symbolic endangered species adoption of the winner’s choice (a $50 donation by Heather to the charity for the endangered species of the winner’s choice, and cute stuffed animal for the winner!), signed copies of her novels and great swag. For full details, and to enter, go HERE .

For the tour Heather has asked each blog host to pick their favorite endangered species and she will tell us a fun or interesting fact about that animal. My daughter chose the panda.

Heather: While a Giant Panda’s diet consists mostly of bamboo, they are actually classified as a carnivore. That isn’t the only thing that separates them from other bears though. Panda’s have thumbs! Sadly, there are only 1600 left in the wild.

  1. Hi Theresa .. what a great way of raising money for endangered species and for promoting Heather's book ..

    Your daughter's Panda is an excellent choice - and only 16000 left .. that's too terrible ... I also didn't know they were carnivores, nor that they had thumbs! Interesting ..
