The final two days of the LouisianaVoice fundraiser for 2014 are today and tomorrow (Oct. 30 and 31). We promise no pleas for contributions before the end of the year and, if all goes well, not until sometime late next Spring. That’s right: our pestering you for contributions will actually end before we hear the last of those very annoying, irritating, seemingly endless negative ads for Mary Landrieu and Bill Cassidy.
We’re still a little short of our goal (but not by much) which will help underwrite our efforts to churn out a comprehensive look at Gov. Bobby Jindal’s administration which we anticipate will be out in time for his final push for the GOP presidential nomination.
But first things first: Dayne Sherman of Hammond, a prolific and talented writer, has just published his latest book, Zion, and the first five persons to contribute to our fund drive, beginning at noon today, will receive a free, signed copy of Dayne’s book. The amount does not matter; it can be $1, $5 or $50 or more. We’re just trying to help Dayne promote his new book about religion, family, friendship, deception and evil. Set in rural Louisiana, it’s a story of a war fought over the killing of hardwoods in Baxter Parish. The story begins in 1964 and ends a decade later but the Hardin family, faithful members of Little Zion Methodist Church, will carry the scars for life.
Here’s how it will work: click on the “Donate” button at the right and make your contribution via credit card. If you don’t see a “Donate” button, it’s probably because you receive our email alerts to new posts. Go to http://louisianavoice.com/ and look for the “Donate” icon. Be sure to send us, in a separate email, your mailing address so that we may provide it to Dayne for shipment of your book. Dayne will not keep, sell or otherwise share your information. In fact, it will be destroyed once your book is shipped.
If you prefer not to contribute, not to worry: you can still get the book free on Kindle through Saturday, Nov. 1. Here’s the link:
