Here's the deal: I have 100 copies of my first book, Those Little Bastads, sitting in a box in my closet. I want to do some good in the world, but don't have a lot of money to do good with. So, I had an idea. I'm going to donate half of the proceeds from every one of those 100 copies to one of my favorite charities, Social Media for Social Change. That's $6.50 per book. If we sell all 100, I'll be able to donate $650 to SM4SC.
Not only will you be benefiting a great cause, but you'll also be getting a book of short stories that the Lowell Sun called "a lively collection of 16 tales". Leslie Poston said of the book, "If you’ve ever wondered what the quiet guy in the corner was really thinking, this book might be your answer. The stories are simple, almost like day dreams, if your day dreams tended to go horribly, horribly awry." And if you're a fellow Chelmsfordite and looking for a local connection, look no further than what Kevin Zimmerman wrote in the pages of the Independent back in the day. He said, "some of his inspiration stems from his days working at the old Purity Supreme grocery store in Chelmsford Center. A parade of tabloids... proved to be an excellent training ground for Clark's creativity."
Still not convinced? Here's a video of me explaining this idea, and why I want so much to make it happen.
Thanks for your support. I hope to be signing a copy of the book for you very soon!
