It’s true. I’m donating all royalties I receive from sales of Three Weeks Less a Day during April and May 2017 to cancer research in the USA and Canada.
Why? One reason is to promote my novel. As a new author, I always look for ways to encourage people to talk about and buy my book. More importantly, I want not only to entertain readers, I also want to encourage people to think about cancer. As explained in the first Rendezvous blog, (http://www.garydmcguganbooks.com/rendezvous-blog/john-george-mortimer-has-breast-cancer), I want fictional character John George Mortimer to increase awareness about breast cancer and shine a light on a reality that men, too, can be afflicted with this insidious disease.
If promoting Three Weeks Less a Day can help people think about cancer, that’s a good thing. We should all examine our bodies and get unusual changes checked out. We should all think about our lifestyle choices and things we consume. And, we should all do our best to finance research towards a cure for all cancers. Promoting my novel helps readers be more aware of cancer while they enjoy a good story. We all win!
But I know skeptics might wonder if royalties I receive when people buy books during April and May will actually end up with the American and Canadian Cancer Societies as advertised. For any who doubt, let me assure every dollar will be donated. I’ve already made a donation of $500.00 to each Cancer Society in advance. When I receive my actual sales results for April and May, I’ll cheerfully remit whatever amount exceeds the $1000.00 already donated.
I hope you’ll share this message with your family and friends. Three Weeks Less a Day is a really entertaining story (check out the reviews!). It makes a great gift for upcoming Mother’s and Father’s Days too. Encourage your friends to order copies now. They’ll improve awareness while they help fund cancer research and enjoy an exciting story of corporate intrigue!

Dictionaries might define the word ‘rendezvous’ as a meeting with someone that is arranged for a particular time and place (and that is often secret); or a place where people agree to meet at a particular time; or perhaps a place where many people go to spend time. Here, Rendezvous is a place where we can share information and get to know each other better.
