Author Donates Book Proceeds to BVL

Throughout the month of August, Michigan author Jamie A. Hope will be donating 25% percent of royalties from the sales of her young adult science-fiction novel, Illusion, to BVL.

The author was interested in supporting a veteran’s charity, as a number of her family members have served in the armed forces and she understands and appreciates the sacrifices made by America’s military. Hope explained her rationale for specifically selecting BVL this way, “I have always been big on financial responsibility. People want to know that when they donate money for a good cause it’s going to go directly to the people that need it — not to heavy administrative budgets. I like that BVL operates on slim overhead to ensure the money entrusted to them goes directly to our veterans.”

Hope’s novel, Illusion, is set in St. Ignace, Michigan and focuses on three teenagers, Salem Stone, his best friend Ben, and childhood love, Sarah. reader Renee said, “Although I am an avid reader, few books have captured my attention so well that I was unable to put them down. I finished this book in two days; I was so captivated by it that I simply couldn’t stop reading. This book is well-written, fast paced and engaging!”Cover

BVL Chair Darlene Baker noted that the book is a perfect gift for last-minute summer reading or an early holiday present, “Although Jamie’s target audience is young adults, it’s a fun read for any one of any age who enjoys this popular current genre.”
