The founder of SinCyr Publishing is passionate about mental health and shifting rape culture. For years, she’s taken part in fundraising efforts that donate proceeds to charities supporting these passions. The latest collection–Summer Fair–is the third provided by the StoryPenners. Melt and Haunt were the first two collections with their proceeds going to the homeless in Chicago and to support mental health research and aide throughout the US.
This time, the StoryPenners decided to donate all their proceeds to RAINN, the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network. Since it was first created in 1994, the National Sexual Assault Hotline (800.656.HOPE and online.rainn.org) has helped more than 2 million people affected by sexual violence. ** This project is not being backed by RAINN, the StoryPenners are just using the proceeds to donate to their efforts.
A bit about Summer Fair
Summer festivals bring the aroma of popcorn, the excitement of rides, and the promise of real-life enchantment. Seven authors bring you original love stories, each set at a different summer celebration. You’ll experience the thrill of the Chicago World’s fair through the eyes of a plucky girl reporter and the quiet desperation of a teen working a summer job at a traveling carnival. Get whisked away on romantic journeys around the world from a sweet Texas Dewberry Festival to a lantern-filled temple celebration to a surprisingly rowdy New England Founders Day. Whether it’s the magic of a Renaissance Fair, the excitement of a Theater Retreat, or the pulse of a Music Festival, you’re sure to get geared up for all things summer with this delightful new collection.
