Buy a Book, Make a Difference

DSC09151Imagine the thrill you’ll feel saving a child’s life or helping a small town police department receive cutting edge CSI training!

Did you know there are places in this country where criminals can get away with murder? Not because police officers don’t care, but because they simply don’t have the CSI resources to catch the bad guys.

As many of you know, I lost a dear friend during my pediatric internship. Thanks to the work of dedicated police officers and forensic experts, his killer was caught. But there are some areas of the country where crimes go unsolved and killers go free because of a lack of forensic training.

Help the police catch those crooks!

So far, thanks to you, we’ve raised over $80,000 for charity AND created SIXTY CSI scholarships at the Sirchie Forensic Institution.

Why did I create the BUY A BOOK, MAKE A DIFFERENCE program? A few years ago I wrote and asked you to help me make a dream come true. You responded by sending BLIND FAITH to #2 on the New York Times Bestseller list.

It was the greatest moment of my career, a true life changing event for me.

Now, with your help, I want to aim even higher.

This time I want us to change the world!

(After all, that’s the main reason why I write Thrillers with Heart–and why I became a Pediatric ER doc in the first place–to change the world and make a difference)

For once, I’m not giving away free books or other swag.

This time I’m giving away cash to several worthy causes. And YOU get to decide how much money they get.

*When one of my books hits either Amazon or BN’s top 100, I’ll donate $3,000 to charities such as: St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, Doctors without Borders, Reading is Fundamental, and the American Heart Association.

*When a book hits the top 20 at either Amazon or BN, I’ll double the donation.

AND when we drive one of my titles to the USA Today or New York Times bestseller lists, I’ll donate a total of $10,000 to charity…

PLUS proceeds from my books sales go to help police officers from under-served areas attend CSI training at the Sirchie Forensic Institution.

I know, it’s a lot of money (gulp!) but you all have done so very much for me, I’m thrilled to be able to give something back!
