In order to help Dave Farland with medical expenses arising from injuries to his 16-year-old son, a book bomb for Dave’s books is underway today.
By purchasing one of Dave’s books today, you’ll not only be helping him via increased royalties, you’ll be improving the visibility of his books on Amazon by bumping up their sales rank.
From Dave’s blog:
Thank you for the outpouring of support yesterday, especially to those who spread (and will spread) the word about the Book Bomb through social media and on their blogs. I have a few update for you all.
We now have a website dedicated to Ben, thanks to James Duckett, who put it together. The site has updates about Ben’s status, links to the donation page, and talks about the book bomb. The address iswww.helpwolverton.com/.
For [today], you should know that anything purchased through these Amazon links for Nightingale and Million Dollar Outlines will help Dave. He gets a small percentage of anything purchased through those links.
So, if you want to buy several other books or products tomorrow, with or without Nightingale and Million Dollar Outlines, please do.

A word of explanation about the links in the excerpt: They’ll take you to two of Dave’s books, but they also include his Amazon affiliate information. This means that, in addition to the royalties Dave will earn from book sales, he’ll receive a 6-7% affiliate fee from anything you purchase on Amazon within 60 minutes of clicking the link.
So, if you click on Nightingale, then buy the book plus a new laptop (or three other books or a blender, Kindle Fire, etc.), Amazon will pay Dave a 70% royalty from the sale of his ebook plus 6-7% of the purchase price of both the book and the laptop.
PG read Nightingale when it was first published and loved it. He’s had comments from people who have purchased Million Dollar Outlines in the last couple of days who thought that book was extremely valuable.
Both as a creative writing professor and a speaker at many writing conferences, Dave has provided valuable assistance to other authors for many years. A long list of successful authors credit Dave for their success.
Now is an opportunity for the writing community to give something back to Dave while he is dealing with a terrible tragedy.
