GLLKA Fundraiser Complete!

This past June, Christopher Whisperings author J. Shep sought to allocate a percentage of each sale of The December Issue towards a donation, and apropos to the lighthouse-featured cover art by Nellie Conboy and the lighthouse-featured novel setting on Lake Superior, he designated Great Lakes Lighthouse Keepers Association as the recipient.  On behalf of Christopher Whisperings, GLLKA, and all who supported, through 10% of each title sold along with extra contributions by generous donors, we secured a donation amount of $118.00 for GLLKA.  Pretty good for June sales of a December-titled book!

We hope these funds can, in some small way, bolster the good work GLLKA does to help preserve lighthouses and maintain quality Great Lakes, both aesthetically and environmentally.  Their commitment to fostering volunteer and service opportunities was of particular note to Shep, who enjoyed posts of persons of all ages donating their time to something outside themselves.

This June Only, J. Shep's The December Issue supports Great Lakes Lighthouse Keepers Association

Christopher Whisperings author J. Shep is donating 10% of June profits for The December Issue sales to The Great Lakes Lighthouse Keepers Association.  "The response to the lighthouse scenes, including the celebration of the sesquicentennial and the display of the lighthouse's characteristic, was so positive and enthusiastic that I am thrilled to be able to support an association that strives to promote and to preserve lighthouses," Shep says.  The cover art, an original watercolor by artist Nellie Conboy, features a lighthouse, as well.  "I remember when I met with Nellie to see the first versions of the cover art.  She was adamant the lighthouse be featured."

GLLKA provides invaluable resources and information about our beautiful Great Lakes and their lighthouses, offers day trips, highlights volunteer opportunities, and more!

This June only, with every purchase of J. Shep's The December Issue, Christopher Whisperings will donate 10% of the cover price to GLLKA.
