Through the month of December, 50% of my royalties will go to the Against Malaria Foundation!
For newcomers to this site who aren’t aware, my Theonite Series is a YA story in which a team of super-powered misfits fight crime in an African-dominated parallel universe. The world-building of Theonite is heavily based on West African culture (specifically that of the Mande of Mali, Guinea, Senegal, Gambia, Sierra Leone and several neighboring countries). From the magic system, to the languages, to the themes of colonialism, my work owes a lot to West African history and culture. This month, I want to give something back, in the form of donations to a charity that helps save lives throughout Africa (including some of the aforementioned countries).
So, to support African-based fantasy as well as real life African people, pick up a digital or paperback copy of a Theonite book now!
My goal is to reach $200 dollars in donations for the Against Malaria Foundation (AMF), a charity that works to distribute insecticide-treated mosquito nets in areas affected by malaria.
In the spirit of transparency (for which AMF is applauded), the following is a breakdown of how much will be donated for each purchase:
(Scroll down for international purchasing links – donations will be applied for all Amazon marketplaces)
If you have any interest in YA sci-fi/fantasy, or know someone who might like these books as a holiday gift, now is the time to get them! If Theonite doesn’t seem like your thing, I strongly encourage you to make a direct donation through AMF’s website.
If you are an author interested in donating a percentage of your royalties to AMF or any other charity this December, respond here or make a post about it with the tag #AuthorsAgainstAffliction and I will promote your book in my December newsletter!
