What You Did Last Week

So To Honor Him was released a day early to newsletter subscribers. Not only did they have the first look, but they had a different price: pay what you want, and all the profit would go to International Justice Mission.

(All direct sales profits last week went to IJM, but on official launch day, the price was a fixed $1.99.)

I wasn’t sure about setting up a pay-what-you-want day. I mean, that kind of thing works for people like Amanda Palmer, but, well, I’m not Amanda Palmer. What if everyone just grabbed the story for free and nothing at all went to International Justice Mission?

I needn’t have worried. Only 3 people downloaded the story without paying anything (which was an option), and everyone else voluntarily contributed to the fundraising effort. Some people contributed a lot — the largest donation was $20! So yes, you guys totally rose to the pay-what-you-want challenge.

So I’m kicking in my own donation and will be sending about $100 to IJM to fight slavery. Virtual high fives all around.

Please remember to leave a review on Amazon or Goodreads, even if you bought it off my own site. Reviews are very important to a book and authors love them — honest reviews, that is. I really appreciate them!

Thanks again for clicking through and for donating with your purchases! And a very Merry Christmas later this week!

  1. Congratulations on a successful pay-what-you-want day! I’ve been a little nervous about going that route myself, but perhaps I ought to give it a try.

  2. Just FYI, I was looking for a place to send my tithe this month (since I’m currently feeling churchless), and because you did this, I remembered IJM and they got my tithe this month. :) So you’re working for them as a brand ambassador too.
