Book Release, Day 2! Buy a book, help a great cause


Friends, thanks SO much to all of you who bought The Boy Who Loved Fire yesterday. All proceeds from day one will be donated to the Grossman Burn Center. Click here to learn more about the amazing work they do for burn survivors.

It's day two! All of today's proceeds will be donated to Carousel Ranch, where they provide equestrian therapy for disabled children. Wanna be inspired? Click here and watch the slide show. You'll be glad you did. (Fun fact: I went to high school with the organization's executive director, Denise Tomey-Redmond)

In The Boy Who Loved Fire, Abigail—the love interest—is a burn victim. Part of her healing process takes place at an equestrian ranch that was loosely modeled after Carousel Ranch.

Again, here's the short description and buy links. 
I'm so grateful for your support!

Manny, a modern teen Scrooge, faces three ghosts as he outruns arson charges, falls for his fire victim, and battles for redemption.


If you buy a copy, I'd love it if you sent me a photo of you holding the book. I'd proudly post the photos here, on Pinterest, and on my author Facebook page. Please send your photos to julie at juliemusil dot com. I sincerely hope you enjoy the book, and again, thanks from the bottom of my heart. 

Have you ever heard of equestrian therapy for disabled children? Did you click on the link and watch photos of the amazing kids?

  2. Downloaded it already! And sorry, not on either of those sites.
    And yes, I have heard of that kind of therapy. I think anything that combines with animals is good.

  5. I have heard of equestrian therapy - in fact, I think there's a place nearby that's involved. Horses are lovely animals and I'm heading over to get my kindle edition...:)

  6. I will have to take a pic of me w/my copy on my Nook. Tho it won't be in color. *sad face* And I'll have to fix my hair and not be wearing my taped-up glasses like I am right now! =) Therapy using animals is such a great way to help people. Despite not having 'souls' themselves(balderdash!), animals certainly can help to heal ours.
