Serendipity can take you to the strangest of places . . .
Last year I made a small online contribution to ISF and moments later, to my surprise, I got an email from the CEO. She happened to be online at the same moment and noticed my name come through. Turns out the ISF CEO is a Kim too, Kim Klingler to be exact. We exchanged a flurry of emails that morning (for me) and evening (for her).
After we got over our serendipitous names (and some common interests and astrological placements), she asked me what inspired me to donate. I told her about the series I was writing and my concern with issues of environment, extinction, technology, consciousness, geo-engineering, education . . . She said she'd put them on her TBR list as soon as she got a chance.
We chatted off and on over the months until in January 2012 I got an email that floored me. She was swearing up a storm, (mouth like a sailor that woman) frothing over how much she loved the books! She’d read Path of the Stray in two days and thought it was everything she’d ever wanted to incorporate into an eco-education-enlightened-law-of-attraction-entertainment-sex-magic-epic SF/fantasy series and asked if I would like to collaborate with ISF.
I said Hell YES and the results is the Ian Somerhalder Foundation Book Club featuring Path of the Stray. If you haven't seen the trailer yet, have a peek.
I want everyone at Supernatural Underground to feel personally invited to join me, Ian, Kim Klingler and all the ISF Team at Goodreads.com where we are creating a community think tank, talking about characters we love, (or love to hate), discussing the scenes and events that move us, and playing with ideas that support our connection to all life, the environment, mind, body, spirit, personal power, law of attraction, astrology, magic, self-awareness and consciousness. I'm donating all proceeds from Path of the Stray to the IS Foundation. They are making a difference to the whole world!
Hot vampire AND eco-evangelist, advocate for endangered species and environments! What's not to love?
