Lyme Disease and Final sales numbers for Dragonfly Dreams in Dec 2011

Anyone who follows my blog knows that all my author profits for the month of December 2011 for my Christmas novella Dragonfly Dreams were donated to the White Family, who due to late diagnosis of Lyme Disease have some very hefty and on-going medical bills.

Here are the final sales numbers:

Amazon: 41

Barnes and Noble: 8

Smashwords:  1

Amazon UK:  1

All Romance eBooks:  1

That gives us a total of 52 books, for $104.00.  I also had a few people contact me saying they didn't get their purchase in before the Dec. 31st cut off, so I'm going to up the donation for a few more books.

I appreciate (as do they!) all the support offered during the sale and would like to thank everyone who bought a copy. Think about the gift you gave as you read the book.

Also, if you'd like to learn more about Lyme Disease for yourself, family, or friends who may be affected or know someone affected by this disease, here's a link to a very good movie called Under Our Skin.  I watched it to find out more of what my friends are going through, but in the end I'm very glad to have the extra knowledge for myself and my family since we're out in the northwoods of WI all the time. Knowledge is power and that's a good thing to have when it comes to your loved ones.

Wishing you a wonderful 2012 full of Dragonfly Dreams!

  1. Stacey,

    Lyme's disease has touched a few people I know in very severe ways. We first learned about it when our tax accountant had to give up her accounting business because of late diagnosis with all the resulting effects for her heart failure and loss of being able to walk. She was very ill. When that happened I'd never heard of the disease.

    And then a few months later, a teacher who worked shared office space with me became very ill and was ultimately diagnosed too late to do much good. She had to retire disabled. Both cases happened before Lyme's disease was much discussed. Since then I've known several who got bitten but were diagnosed very quickly and are quite healthy.

    You've done such good thing with your donation. I'm so proud of you!

  2. That movie I watched was VERY eye opening and I highly recommend it. I'm sorry not all your friends were caught quick enough to be helped to the point they were healthy again. Like the White's told me, hopefully we can all spread the word so more people don't have to go through what they and your friends have.

  3. There is a lot of confusion and misinformation about Lyme disease. This article addresses these untruths and also informs the reader about causes, symptoms, treatment and prevention.
