41 writers. One cause. We've rallied a platoon of crime, western, thriller, fantasy, noir, horror and transgressive authors to support PROTECT's important work: lobbying for legislation that protects children from physical, sexual, and emotional abuse.

Powerful stories from George Pelecanos, Andrew Vachss, Joe R. Lansdale, Charles de Lint, Ken Bruen, Chet Williamson, James Reasoner, Charlie Stella, Michael A. Black, Wayne Dundee, Roxane Gay, Ray Banks, Tony Black, Les Edgerton and 16 more, with 100% of proceeds going to PROTECT.

Lost Children: Protectors

I am very proud to announce that as of May 1st 2012, we have raised $1622.51 for PROTECT, Living Water for Girls, and Children 1st.
That includes the original donations by Fiona and myself, and if you go to our Donations page, you can see the breakdown. Fiona has been running around selling paperbacks and has raised a lot for Children 1st on her own.

Thank you to all the writers who contributed, and to everyone who has purchased the book or supported us in any way.

And a second announcement:
A second volume, with all new authors, is under way.

Lost Children: Protectors - An Anthology to Benefit PROTECT will be released in September 2012 in e-book and trade paperback.
