The excerpts in Mixed Words are taken from works written by adults, for adults. There are passages from memoirs, a work offering social inspiration, a work of fiction based on a real-life story, and poems for adults and children. Definitely engaging, the book may entice you to buy some of the works the samples are culled from! Most importantly, this project is a fundraiser. Proceeds from sales will benefit children in need in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire, via the Greater Lakes Regional Children’s Auction. The Auction is a nonprofit that hosts an annual event for one week every December in central New Hampshire to raise money that is granted to local organizations that support children and families. Funds are also raised all year long. Over the thirty-eight years the Auction has been in existence, over six million dollars has been raised for philanthropic good, all through volunteer efforts, community donations, and corporate sponsorships. Help our authors help the Auction—and provide a boost for people who need it most. It’s for the Kids!
