#Buy Gooseberry Island by Steven Manchester and #Support #WoundedWarrior
I cannot think of something more humbling than meeting a wounded warrior. Someone that has been hurt in the line of duty, someone that is willing to fight for my rights to live how I want to live. The men and women that come back from war are more than a hero. These people deserve our support, gratitude, love, respect, acceptance and our love.
I have worked with The Story Plant in the past and so enjoy this publishing company. They publish top of the line engaging books that keep the readers waiting impatiently for the next book. I honestly have not read a book by the publishing company I did not like.
When The Story Plant sent out a special request I quickly emailed them asking if I could share this with my readers. What’s so special about this you ask? Well The Story Plant will be donating $1 from every Gooseberry Island copy sold to the Wounded Warrior Project. They are calling this a ‘Pay It Forward’ campaign. I call it a blessing and something that might give one solider a little hope that tomorrow will be a bright day.
Please in this busy Christmas season consider purchasing a copy of this great new book. I know I have my copy and I hope you will get your copy.
A special request
Let’s get viral.
Steven Manchester’s next book will be out on January 6, 2015. Voted one of the Must Read Books of 2015 by Cyrus Webb Presents, Gooseberry Island is sure to be the next hit from one of our #1 bestselling authors. The book looks at the budding relationship between Lindsay and David, who have to deal with David’s deployment overseas and his recovery from the trauma he witnessed in the service of his country.
PTSD is one of the biggest problems facing soldiers as they return from war. As an experienced veteran himself, Steven Manchester understands that. That’s why, during the promotion of this book, Steven and The Story Plant are going to be working toward helping returning veterans. And we need your help to do that.
From now until January 31, 2015, we will donate $1 to the Wounded Warrior Project for every copy of Gooseberry Island that is pre-ordered and sold. All you have to do is email us a copy of your receipt and we will make the donation. In addition to that, we will also donate a copy of the e-book to returning soldiers, one donation for each copy sold.
Here’s the really important part – we need your help to spread the word about this campaign! Tell your neighbors, tell your family members, tell the person working the checkout line in the grocery story. Just tell as many people as you can and ask them to help spread the word too. We want this campaign to go viral! Let’s do something good this holiday season and celebrate those who protect and serve our country!

Gooseberry Island: “Mr. Manchester handles [PTSD] with great compassion. He brings to life the hardships that are suffered by our returning servicemen. His characters have depth and the story is compelling. It is not only a novel, it helps to inform the reader of the difficulties experienced and the silent life and death struggle that goes on every day around us.” -From Book Bug Blog
