Although the print version of 50 Shades of Grades, My Journey Through Wacademia is 335 pages, the book is 5″ x 7″ and easily slips into a purse or backpack. I had not anticipated the strong reaction to the book. Sales have been so strong that I have not even received my own copy yet! Seriously! I only have the proof copy in my possession. I have grand plans that I was waiting to announce, but will share with you now. The first wave of book sales will offset the initial investment. Thereafter I will donate a percentage of the revenue earned by the book to education. It might go to support existing programs in a particular school, help to establish new ones, provide support for extra curricular activities, or simply provide scholarship monies for deserving students.
In addition to a percentage of revenue, I will place a “Donate” button on this web page that will allow visitors to donate to the education fund. All monies collected via the “Donate” button will go toward educational activities such as the ones noted above, or, if visitors to this site have suggestions, they may be submitted via email and will be given consideration. If this venture proves successful I will establish specific criteria for use of the education fund and design an application form from which schools and students will be able to apply.
I hope you enjoy the book. Please feel free to email me at ARN@50shadesofgrades.com with any thoughts or suggestions.
