I’m celebrating Pride month (June) by donating 100% of my royalties for Things Are What You Make of Them to the Tegan and Sara Foundation to help them support economic justice, health, and representation for LGBTQ girls and women.

You might remember we raised $7,500 for this great organization with the book preorder campaign last year, but I’m hoping this is a continued opportunity to use my art for good in the same way that Tegan and Sara continue to use theirs, leading by example for so many of us.

I earn $1.05 per book sold (in bookstores, on amazon, or anywhere else you buy a copy) so we’ll see how much it ends up being! If you haven’t got a copy yet this might be a perfect excuse to help yourself and others.

Author: Penny Wilder

Penny Wilder is a queer human who writes and reads far too many books. She lives near Minneapolis, Minnesota with her husband and four cats. Her favorite thing to do at the end of a very long day is to curl up with her tablet and read. She does bookkeeping for nonprofits by day, and by night moonlights as a blogger, artist, illustrator, actor, director, performer, and also sometimes as a business manager for a fledgling theater company. (Not all at once though, because that would be crazy!) She has spent a good deal of her life working in theater; either onstage as a performer, or backstage doing just about every job imaginable. Her love of writing dates back almost as far as her love of reading.
