    My book has been edited and is ready for sale, but I need to get 100 pre-sale orders before it gets published. Thereafter I get a percentage of royalties shared with the publisher but my aim is to give 50% of all my profits thereafter to a cancer charity. The book is ‘SOLAR-THE MAGICAL SPACE DOG’. $15.97 Thanks Harry Higgs
