Witches to the Rescue

It is no secret. I really love witches and anything and everything to do with them.

All the witches

It is also no secret that I used to be a pretty solid Potter-verse fan.  I have read all the books, seen all the movies, been to the theme park, and played the mobile game.  It was something fun I could do with my family, and we all enjoyed it. 

And then, J.K. Rowling began to show her ugly side.  I am not going to debate what she said here. Why? She is wrong, plain and simple, but I am not out there burning my Potter books (besides, burning books is a coward's move) I am just not supporting her and trying in my own small way not to popularize her. Trust me, I have no illusions about my effectiveness here.

So the new game coming out was going pass by these pages unremarked.

Then I saw this post on both Facebook and Twitter.

Doug Levandowski along with Jonathan Gilmour and Spenser Starke are the authors of the wonderful Kids on Brooms (non-affiliate link, but do try and buy it tomorrow if you can).  Their book is extremely popular and hopefully will sell a lot.

And I realized that, yes, there is something I can do.  I have a LOT more books about witches. 

So. In solidarity with Kids on Brooms team and always in solidarity with the LGBTQI, but especially the trans community I will donate ALL profits from ALL my witch books starting at 12:00 am Midnight Friday, Feb 10, 2023 to 11:59 Sunday, Feb 12, 2023 to the Trevor Project.

So every book. Every profit. Even my newest one, Monster Mash.

Yeah, I know some will call this "Virtue Signaling," but I want to clarify where I stand and let others know what their purchases will do this weekend.  Besides, calling out Virtue Signaling is just virtue signaling to other assholes. Don't like what I do here? I don't care. Get your own fucking blog and books and sell them how you like. 

So pick up some books about witches this weekend. Go grab Kids on Brooms tomorrow and some of my stuff later. And avoid the Potter game.

Maybe the best way I've heard it described. Certainly gonna use this one.
