-- Soon after the release of Prairie Springs on Amazon's Kindle, the book soared to number one in three categories at the regular price. The author has now lowered the eBook price to $.99 for the month of February to raise money for Blue Paws Animal Rescue based in Lexington, Texas.
The author became aware of Blue Paws after his sister used the rescue to adopt a blind kitten, Tallulah. "She told me about the couple who ran the rescue, and all they did for the animals with their own money and small contributions. I had to help."
Blue Paws Facebook page states: "We are an all volunteer 501(c)3 non-profit focused on feral cats using the Trap, Neuter, Return (TNR) method. When we come across loving cats/kittens we do our best to find an equally loving home." Any animal finds a home with them, including those in need of surgery and/or rehabilitation.
Prairie Springs is included on the prestigious GLBT Literature site in the Recommended Fun Stuff category, and has gained a loyal following of fans. The story of Prairie Springs is an entertaining look at life in a seemingly conservative, small Texas town. The journey begins with the arrival of a new resident, who unknowingly exposes a secret, which culminates in an unexpected ending. Williamson wrote Prairie Springs with one mission: to make judging your neighbor impossible. He succeeded...and he did it with comedy.
Prairie Springs' Facebook page states that the sequel will be released in late-2012.
Proceeds from both paperback sales through Amazon, and downloads at Smashwords and Amazon, will go to Blue Paws.
