I’d like to welcome my guest blogger Pauline Baird Jones. Pauline is an old and dear friend and a fellow SFR author. Today, she is sharing a special project from her and a whole crew of other SFR authors to raise money for Hero Dogs. — Monette
It Started as a Joke and Became Our Mission
The first Pets in Space anthology started as a joke, a throwaway comment on Facebook, but Veronica Scot saw the potential of the idea and contacted me privately and said, “We should do this.”
I thought about it and realized she was right. We should do this, but we both had two requirements that had to happen if we did this.
- Awesome original stories (Veronica convinced some amazing authors to write stories for our adventure in space and publishing); and
- We had to donate a portion of the proceeds to a charity that is about animals and veterans.
It did not take us long to discover Hero-Dogs.org. We knew they were the charity for us, but would they be willing to partner with something called Pets in Space?
They did! And when we went back to them for Embrace the Romance: Pets in Space 2, we were so honored that they said yes again. Supporting this charity has definitely become our passion.
What is Hero Dogs you ask?
Hero Dogs, Inc., a Maryland 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, improves quality of life for our nation’s heroes by raising, training, and placing service dogs and other highly skilled canines, free of charge with lifetime support of the partnerships.
In addition to supporting a wonderful charity, Embrace the Romance: Pets in Space 2, brings you a dozen original stories written just for you! Join in the fun, from the Dragon Lords of Valdier to a trip aboard award-winning author Veronica Scott’s Nebula Zephyr to journeying back to Luda where Grim is King, for stories that will take you out of this world!
