Dilemma: Entertainment or Donation to Your Favorite Charity In Today’s Economy? Why Choose, You Can Do Both.

Named best-seller by her publisher in May of 2010 Billie A Williams
donates 25% of her royalties to light up Amberg, Wisconsin for Christmas.

In today’s economy sometimes it’s a tossup between affordable entertainment and a charitable donation. Billie A Williams solves this dilemma with her, appropriately titled book, Money Isn’t Everything, released May 2010 by Wings ePress, Inc. Publisher, by donating twenty-five percent of each of her quarterly royalties to the Amberg Community Action Association she hopes to help buy Christmas decorations and lights for the streets of Amberg.

This is Williams twenty-ninth novel with two more scheduled for release one in July and one in September of 2010.

Money Isn’t Everything. It isn’t love, it isn’t security and it can’t buy loyalty. It can be a tool –OR—a murder weapon and it can be a donation to a worthy cause.

Best-selling, award-winning, multi-published author, are a few of the honors bestowed on Williams since her first published essay “Dandelion With Angel Wings,” hit the pages of Thema, Literary Magazine in the year 2000. Her first novel, Death by Candlelight, soon followed in 2001. More releases followed every year since, some under a pseudonym and they now total thirty-four, with five of the published books being nonfiction dedicated to the art and craft of writing.

Every one of her published books gives twenty-five percent of her royalties to a worthy
cause, charity or organization.

Money Isn’t Everything is available in bookstores, online, from the publisher or autographed copies from the author. Won’t you join her and help celebrate Christmas in Amberg. To learn more, check out her many releases and read some excerpts, go to
