Hey, I keep forgetting to tell people this–my bad. I talked to the wonderful guys at FurPlanet over MFF weekend and they have agreed to join me in donating all proceeds from the first month of sales of The Time He Desires to the ACLU. For the print book that’ll be December; for the e-book (on sale only at BadDogBooks.com as of Jan 1) it’ll be January.
The Time He Desires is not about prejudice exactly, but it presents a Muslim main character and his struggle to understand homosexuality. There were a lot of organizations we could have chosen, but the ACLU is committed to protecting the rights of LGBTQ people, Muslims and people of all faiths, and anyone else whose rights are in danger. Their work is particularly important with the incoming government having spoken of registering people in a database based on their religion and appointing Supreme Court justices who will roll back women’s and gay rights (to name only a couple terrifying things). I’m donating to them monthly anyway, but the FurPlanet folks and I agree that we want to help out more and this book seems like a good way to do it.
If you want to help out the ACLU even more, you can donate on their site or set up recurring donations as little as $1/month.
