Royalties from The Charge to support disaster relief in West, Texas
I'd like to do a little bit to help my neighbors to the north in West, Texas, so from 4/22-4/28 all my estimated royalties from sales of The Charge will go to the Salvation Army's disaster relief efforts in West.
As an extra bonus, for every new review of The Charge on Amazon.com during this time, I'll donate an extra $5. So, if you've read The Charge, now is the time to write a review!
Last week, an explosion at a fertilizer plant devastated the small town of West, Texas. 75 homes were destroyed, 160 people were injured, and 14 people were killed, most of whom were volunteer first responders. Volunteer EMTs and firefighters rushed toward the plume of smoke at the plant, only to be struck down in the massive explosion that was to come.
The Salvation Army has been on-site since the blast providing food, water, and spiritual support. As long-term recovery begins, they will continue to provide case management and counseling to help the residents of West re-build their lives.
The Salvation Army is also providing assistance at disaster sites across the U.S. and the world, including Boston and Sichuan, China.

Thank you for your support!
