Charity: Buy Double Zebra: Of Zen and Zombies and 50% of the royalties will go to Nathan Fillion's Kids Need To Read

Allison Bonde, the writer of the book Double Zebra: Of Zen and Zombies, contacted me to let every Castle fan that if they buy a copy of her book, 50% of the royalties will go to the charity of Nathan Fillion: Kids Need To Read

The synopsis of the book is as follows:

"Handsomely rugged Ethan Florian is the talented star of movies and television who is in the heart of the Black Hills of South Dakota to shoot an Independent film. Problems curse the production, and the actor's health and safety are repeatedly put in jeopardy. Circumstance teams him with local Paramedic Sofie Toft and together they endure humorous encounters with bikers, felons, and their own Zombie Apocalypse."

More excerpts, and the first two chapters, can be read at the Amazon

The book is available internationally.

A full half of all royalties for sales between 12/01/12 and 12/31/13 are being donated to Kids Need To Read, the charity founded and promoted by Nathan Fillion and PJ Haarsma.  Even in the book, "Ethan Florian" advocates reading as the best precursor to success in a casual conversations.  It is a cause dear to many of us.

There are a great many asides and references that avid fans of the Captain will understand, but not the general public.  The story stands alone, but has added depth to Browncoats.

The book is the first of a trilogy, and subsequent books will also donate 50% of royalties for 13 months.  I take my support of KNTR seriously.  Book 2, Serenity Falls, is due in the summer of 2013.

A note from the author:

This book was a way to fulfill a vow to my own 8 year old daughter, who passed away early Christmas morning of 2007. Every person who reads this book is counted as a victory in keeping my word. While the comedic tale involving the main characters is obviously fiction, the flashbacks regarding the Paramedic's child are based on reality. 

Thank you for your time and support of a worthy cause.  Wishing you a shiny day.
