There is an author on Kindleboards who rescued a Saint Bernard who now needs a major operation on his front legs. It's pretty expensive and if he doesn't get it, he won't be able to walk. Not good. The reason she's selling her book is to raise funds for this operation so why not purchase Cries in the Dark and help a puppy out. It's definitely written about a subject close to an animal-lover's heart. It's also available on Smashwords but right now it's cheaper on Amazon.
Here is the product description:
Two prostitutes vanish.
Chimps are mysteriously missing from a primate sign lab. Is there a possible link to a biomedical research facility?
While premed student Alex Buchanan confronts her new-found ability to communicate telepathically with animals, the body toll mounts.
When her boyfriend disappears with a dangerous secret, Alex knows a serial killer is stalking her.
Can she solve this dilemma before becoming the next victim?
Another author offered to donate proceeds from their own book sales (how nice is that?) if a fund was set up. If that happens, I'll update this post and link to the information in case anyone else wants to donate something.
My pets were all unwanted and I know it can be expensive to take them on but a $12,000 operation is huge, a lot of people would rather put the dog down than pay that so it would be great if people could tweet/facebook/blog about the book and maybe give it a wee boost.
