As you all remember, and in the wake of the Susan G. Komen thing, last week I and Subterranean Press pledged the income generated by one week of sales of my SubPress eBooks to support Planned Parenthood’s breast cancer screening and education efforts. I’m delighted to say that in the end we raised $5,200. (Well, $5,196.30, but then I tossed in $3.70 to even it up). As promised we’ll specify that the funds go exclusively to Planned Parenthood’s breast cancer-related initiatives, which help poor and underserved women in early detection and treatment. $5,200 is a relative drop in the bucket, but you put enough drops together and you’ve got something useful.
Thanks to everyone who picked a SubPress eBook in the last week; I hope you’ve enjoyed what you’ve been reading. And thanks for helping women learn about, detect, and fight, breast cancer. You’ve done good, and you’ve done well.
