FROM THE DESK OF DOUGLAS ANTHONY COOPER

As some of you may know, I’ve been writing a series of articles for the Huffington Post in support of No Kill. Most have been highly critical of PETA, and a new series is equally critical of the HSUS.

Now, there has been a very recent effort to remove me from Wikipedia, as “insufficiently notable.” A perfectly acceptable opinion — I’m about as notable as a hangnail.  However: I’ve discovered that the guy spearheading the effort just happens to be a particularly notorious shill for the HSUS.You may well have had an encounter with this sweet soul yourself. On Wikipedia he goes by the name “JohnDopp,” which is a lousy disguise, carefully stripped away here.

Hence, I’ve cooked up a lovely idea with the No Kill community: wouldn’t it be nicely ironic to counter his efforts to make me non-notable, with a campaign to make him really notable?

THE IDEA:

And so, as a reward for his shamelessness and slander, we have decided to set up a JohnDopp No Kill Fund. This will be a sum of money, equally divided between No Kill Nation and the No Kill Advocacy Center. And, depending upon you — how generous you are, and whether you have a slightly evil sense of humor — it might be a decent sum. We could put it towards something real swell, like education: the JohnDopp No Kill Education Fund. Or towards a publicity campaign on the Web: the JohnDopp No Kill Awareness Fund. All to be determined.

THE PROPOSAL:

I am donating all of the digital proceeds from three of my novels to No Kill, for at least the next six months. The digital publication of three of these books is handled solely by me, via Amazon: hence I’m simply going to change the banking details, so that all proceeds land in a No Kill bank account, rather than my own.

ABOUT THE BOOKS:

You buy these simply by going to the Amazon Kindle store, and… well, buying them. The links are below. All of the profit, after Amazon’s cut, goes directly to No Kill. These books will be delivered in Kindle format, which can be read on just about any digital device, using the free Kindle software (cell phones, PCs, iPads, etc.)

For what it’s worth, all three of these were bestsellers, and the first two were nominated for and won various honors.  I promise they’re not terrible or anything.

MILROSE MUNCE AND THE DEN OF PROFESSIONAL HELP

The Milrose Munce books are for young adults. They are immensely silly. The first one, The Den of Professional Help, is $0.99: http://amzn.to/SMdjBa

MILROSE MUNCE AND THE PLAGUE OF TOXIC FUNGUS

The sequel is $2.99: http://amzn.to/RfiPMk

AMNESIA

My first book for adults: not silly, I’m afraid. Arguably a bit difficult. It was nominated for the Books in Canada First Novel Award, however, and longlisted for the Commonwealth Prize. $2.99: http://amzn.to/oIfK8k


________________________________________________________________

Hence, for as little as 99 cents, you get to read a book, put money into the No Kill bank account, and shame JohnDopp.

I don’t expect the sum will amount to HSUS-level funding, but it should be enough to save a few shelter animals. Which is all that matters.

(NOTE: All profits go to No Kill. Amazon’s pricing rules mean that for a $0.99 book, the profit is 30%. For a $2.99 book, No Kill receives 70%. ONE exception: in Canada, the first Milrose is published by Doubleday. Which is why the price is much higher. I’m afraid that this one book, when purchased from Canada, does not feed into the JohnDopp Fund.)
