10% to the American Cancer Society

A few months ago when I signed with Entangled, I mentioned that part of my journey to publication involved my father growing sick. As he is my first reader and why I began writing, I said that I would donate 10% of my earnings for the entire GRAVITY series to the American Cancer Society. I have yet to mention this again because honestly I tend to be private both about my personal life and also my charitable donations, but in talking to my dad today, I realize that is foolish.

So I will be adding a page here on my blog (and also my website) that details why I’m passionate about the American Cancer Society, and then the 10% donation and how that will work. I am fully open to any questions you may have, as my intention is to bring more awareness to this disease that impacts so many.


  1. Very nice, Melissa. Best wishes for the success of your book, and most of all to your dad.

  2. Such an awesome precedent, Mel! I shall follow in your footsteps when my time comes.

  3. Melissa, I think it's great that you are doing this. I'll be sure to get your book when it's out and help the cause.

  4. So glad that you shared this with us.
