It's been quite the weekend. Thank you to everyone who has bought a copy of The Secret Underground or tweeted/blogged/facebooked about it. I wish I could give all of you a big hug! Every single sale makes a difference to Jayden's family.
I thought I'd tell you about just one big expense that Jayden's parents have on a regular basis.
Most parents know that formula can be super expensive, it's not unusual for a family to spend $20-$40 a week just on formula. Jayden's health issues, combined with food allergies, make it difficult to find a formula his tummy can handle. The only one he tolerates costs between $70 and $100 per week. That's over $3500 a year just for formula. This is one of many expenses that make it difficult for Jayden's parents to make ends meet.
My goal for the book is to raise enough money to buy Jayden's formula for a year. I don't have a lot of sales data yet, but I know that during the pre-order period we raised enough to cover ten days, so we've only got 355 to go. :)
I'm going to keep a running total on the sidebar, so you can check up to see how we're doing.
Thanks again for all the support. I really do believe it will make a difference.
P.S. The paperback is FINALLY up on Amazon! And the Kobo and Google eBooks are now available too. All purchase links are on the sidebar.
How Karen Will Get Her Groove Back - Oh, where to start. First and most importantly, I am truly sorry for disappearing for a year. Truly and deeply. That's mainly an apology to my readers, but...
