Throughout 2014, independent authors are joining together into the Writing for Water team, pledging a share of their earnings for the cause of clean water worldwide. Our progress is tracked monthly at http://carmenamato.net/writingforwater.
We started with the goal of providing 25 people with clean water for life. We met that goal midway through 2014. In the last 3 months of the year we hope to really make a difference. How high can we go?
It's not just that we want to sell books--although when you are an author you do hope to sell a few--we want our readers to make a global impact. Be entertained but know that your purchase is making a difference, too.
That’s why we’re asking you to buy a book. Not only will you get some terrific entertainment, but you'll also help us help others.
Please support the effort to bring clean water and decent sanitation to those who need it by buying a book from one of the Writing for Water Authors. All titles available at Amazon.com:

Originally from New York, Carmen Amato's experiences living in Mexico and Central America drive the authenticity and drama of her thriller and mystery novels. Her Emilia Cruz series pits the first and only female detective on the Acapulco police force against Mexico's drug war and culture of machismo. See why Amazon Hall of Fame reviewer Grady Harp wrote: "For pure entertainment and a gripping story likely resulting in nail biting, read Carmen Amato's addictive prose. She knows this territory like a jaguar!"
