Special Sale – The British Devil by Greg Hogben

January 31, 2013

A few days ago, Becky from mrsconditreadsbooks.com sent us this e-mail:

“We’ve created our first Special Event for this book. One of our reviewers has a teenaged son who was assigned by his teacher a year-long project to study something of concern to society. He chose gay marriage. Part of this assignment was to read a novel on the topic. As you can imagine, his mother had quite a time finding an age-appropriate novel that she felt comfortable letting him read, but another author recommended The British Devil and both of them enjoyed it very much.

I’ve posted the mother’s comments as well as the teenager’s review. It does contain some spoilers but that was part of his assignment so we put a warning on the review. We are donating $50 to the It Gets Better Project in honor of this young man’s hard work, and are encouraging others to donate to the gay rights cause of their choice.

This is the only post for that day, as it is a Special Event.”

We at DSP are extremely humbled and honored that one of our books was chosen for this cause. That is why we are offering 30% off both the e-book and paperback of The British Devil from Jan 31- Feb 3 to encourage people to read it for themselves. All the royalties from this special sale will be donated to the It Gets Better Project.

We want to thank Matthew and mrsconditreadsbooks.com for this special event.

The DSP Team.

    This is a wonderful gesture which I’ve immediately taken advantage of. I hope a lot of others do as well. I’m sure I’ll enjoy the book and will appreciate it even more knowing the price goes to such an excellent cause. Thanks to DSP!

    It was our honor and privilege to play a role in bringing this important subject, through the eyes of a teenager, to light. I am personally so proud of Greg Hogben, Lady McNeill, Matthew, and the staff at Dreamspinner Press.

    Congratulations! This is such a great story and i applaud Matthew as I am sure this was not the easiest cause for a high school student to champion. I also acknowledge how his mother’s guidance and support must have helped him make such an important and controversial choice. You are doing a good thing. Well done.

    I too am impressed with Matthew and his mother for undertaking this challenging topic at the high school level. I also continue to be impressed with the quality of publications from Dreamspinner Press.

  5. Frances (aka Matthew's mom) says:

    Thank you Dreamspinner Press for doing this! I was so surprised to see your response to Matthew’s work on The British Devil. I am really proud of the work he’s done but the response from everyone else has been so amazing! I hope many people have taken advantage of your special promotion!
