Jordyn Burlot & Copyhouse Press Pledge 25% of Proceeds from "Destiel" to Charity
Jordyn Burlot is a lifeling animal lover who has first-hand experience of domestic violence. Domestic violence is a huge - though tragically under-reported - problem in Western Society, and it is doubly so when there are pets involved. In memory of her dog Jake, who sadly passed away some years ago, she has decided - with the co-operation and support of her publisher - to donate a proportion of the proceeds of her debut novel to a project run by a leading animal charity.
Pet owners see their pets as sources of comfort, friends, companions and - in a very real sense - family members. Often, people in an abusive relationship will stay there rather than risk losing their pet if they walk away - the majority of private landlords simply will not accept renters with pets and the chances of an abused partner securing emergency accomodation with a pet in tow are practically non-existent.
There is now help available for abused partners with pets. Two charity-run refuges offer victims of domestic abuse a safe haven for their pets while they escape from their predicament.
Jordyn Burlot is pleased to annouce that 25% of all proceeds from all sales of the novel "Destiel" will be donated to these refuges, regardless of format or sales location.
