ShapeShifter’s Musical Hanukkah Celebration - Susan Helene Gottfried

What? Who?  Most of you know her as Susan, owner of that wonderful contest site West of Mars - Win a Book  that posts all of our giveaways. But how many of you have read her books?  No? Well -jump into the rock and roll world of Trevor and the band - ShapeShifter.

Now what's this about Musical Hannukkah?? Well it's a little something Susan's been doing since 2006... 

Quoting Susan:

"I know, I know. The first night of Hanukkah isn’t until December 1.

BUT. This year’s Musical Hanukkah Celebration is shaping up around here to be the biggest and best yet. Not only will ShapeShifter be playing, but so will some familiar faces. I’m hoping to have a really amazing t-shirt for you (hopefully designed by my good friend Lakota Phillips) and maybe, just maybe Demo Tapes: Year 3.

Since many of you are new around here, or may have merely forgotten, for the next two months, I’ll be posting flashback links for you. Whether it’s your first visit or your eighth, come join in the miracle of Hanukkah — ShapeShifter style.

Reminder: at least 50% of my royalties in November and December will be donated to charity. The more books I sell, the higher that percentage will go!

Here’s today’s flashback link. Give it up for Chelle LaFleur and the post that started this whole thing off, back in 2006.

But here’s the deal: during the months of November and December 2010, I’ll be donating AT LEAST 50% of my royalties to the Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation. This is to coincide with ShapeShifter’s Musical Hanukkah Celebration, set for December 6 this year.

If you don’t want to wait, that’s fine. Buy your books now. That’ll give me enough of a cushion that I’ll be able to donate more than 50% come January 1.

I’m working on lining up raffles and whatnot for anyone who donates directly to the Foundation via the donation link I’ve set up, as well. Send me your receipt and you’ll be entered. Click here for a list of what’s being offered.

Be sure to keep an eye on The Meet and Greet at West of Mars for new fiction about this year’s Musical Hanukkah Celebration, as well as flashback links to the older stuff. Just in case you missed it, or need to be reminded of how much fun this time of year is."

Not a contest so much as some other promo offerings here that might entice you to help the cause:

Because I had to raise the price on the print edition to an ungodly $17.98 at Lulu (in order to make less than a dollar in royalties on Amazon sales!), if you order a copy of Trevor’s Song directly from me, I’ll only charge you $13, which is the price I’d been hoping to charge. I have shipping worked out for most areas around the world, so take advantage of the $5 price cut, why don’tcha?

Also, if you pick up a copy of The Demo Tapes: Year 1 via the Kindle Store, send me your reciept and I’ll send YOU a coupon code for a free download of Year 2 via Two for one! This will run until I say otherwise."

So, hey - all for a good cause - and a great read!
