We are donating 20% of our takings today to two very different initiatives.
Firstly, the crisis funding for the ‘inclusive indies’ initiative which helps support diversity in publishing and bookselling (organised by our friends at Round Table Books and Jacaranda Books): https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/inclusive-indies
And secondly, a bail funding initiative in America that splits donations amongst 38 community bail funds (which support those on low income in the US judicial system): https://secure.actblue.com/donate/bail_funds_george_floyd
We’re also looking to ourselves and our profiling of BAME authors. All and any ideas are very welcome.
