I'm so excited today! A special edition of Heather McCorkle’s The Secret Of Spruce Knoll is releasing from Compass Press this month and she’s doing a special tour to go along with it. The special part, a percentage of the proceeds from every special edition sold (in every format) between its release date and 12-12-2012, will go toward Heather’s favorite charity that protects endangered species. Her goal is to make at least $10,000 for the charity.
WOO HOO!!!!! Books and charity - what a fabulous combination!
Of course there are prizes during the tour which goes from December 1st through the 17th. Prizes include a symbolic endangered species adoption of the winner’s choice (a $50 donation by Heather to the charity for the endangered species of the winner’s choice, and cute stuffed animal for the winner!), signed copies of her novels and great swag. For full details, and to enter, go here. http://heathermccorkle.
For the tour Heather has asked each blog host to pick their favorite endangered species and she will tell us a fun or interesting fact about that animal.
So I picked....
The Green Sea Turtle
I have had the pleasure of diving with these lovely animals off the coast of Maui - and they are amazing!
So Heather - what can you tell us about the Green Sea Turtle?
Heather: You’ve picked one of my favorite creatures! It breaks my heart that they have now been upgraded to the critically endangered list due to habitat destruction, hunting, egg collecting, and pollution. Much like humans, it takes sea turtles decades to be ready to mate and it takes two months for the eggs to incubate. Hatchling gender depends on the sand temperature.
Wow! I didn't know about the gender. That IS interesting.
Thanks for letting me be part of this, Heather. And if you guys want to be part of the fun, check out the full tour and the prizes at http://heathermccorkle.
