Let's Raise Some Paws


Hi, I'm Oreo, the mascot of the Read for Animals project
We have raised 200 paws to help my friends in shelters and sanctuaries
My friends are unwanted, abused or sick, and they don't have loving homes.
They get food, shelter and love from the dedicated workers of the shelters, but they depend on donations to help animals.

The Read for Animals project was created by author Erika M Szabo,
and her author, poet and animal lover friends joined her to publish two books in the series,
The royalty from the book sales is donated to shelters, sanctuaries and animal hospices.
The stories and poems are purrrfect and grrrreat in both books, and there are lots of pictures of my friends in the books too.

I'm on a website and blog tour to raise some paws and help my friends


We have donated $100 from the sales of the #1 book
And $100 from the sales of the #2 book

A million thanks


With this watercolor picture, I'd like to thank everyone who participated in the Read for Animals #2 project.

The author and poets who donated their stories, poems and photos:
Evelyn Steward, Jennifer Priester, Lorinda J. Taylor, Olyn Warfield, Paula Shene, Jeanne E. Rogers, Aya Walksfar, Pamela Griffiths, Linda Whitehead Humbert, Alice Marks, John A. Miller, Brian T Shirley, Tracey Dixon, Sandra Novelly, Susan M Plake, Barbara Corry, Michael Spisak, Susan Austin.

Paula Shene and Jeanne E. Rogers

Friends who donated their animal photos:

The book is now available in ebook, coming soon in print

The Read for Animals project started when I was organizing and rewriting the short stories I have written the past few years. The idea came to me that with a few of my friends we could put together an anthology to help animals, and I asked my animal lover friends if they’d like to participate. They responded, and the stories and poems started flooding in. We published the first book of the Read for Animals series, and the first $100 donation was made to Columbia Greene animal shelter of NY, thanks to animal lovers who purchased the book.
This book is the second in the Read for Animals series. Some stories will make you laugh out loud; others will warm your heart and make you cry. Some stories are true, and the fantasy stories will make you think… what if? Each author and poet brings their unique writing style, to make the book enjoyable.
Thank you for helping our furry, scaly and feathered friends in need, by purchasing this book.
-Erika M Szabo
What can we do as writers and poets to help animals in need? We can write, sell the book and donate the money – after publishing fees – to animal shelters, sanctuaries and animal hospices to help their dedicated work.

Animal lovers unite for a good cause


You are invited to our week-long Facebook event
September 9-16


Animal lovers unite to support a good cause, to help animals. In this event we don’t offer prizes. We will play fun games such as “caption this” picture posts, and the best captions will be displayed on the Read for Animals blog: http://www.readforanimals.blogspot.com
The reason for this event is to get together in a week-long event, talk and post about animals and read books to help animals.
The Read for Animals project started when I was organizing and rewriting the short stories I have written the past few years. The idea came to me that with a few of my friends we could put together an anthology to help animals, and I asked my animal lover friends if they’d like to participate. They responded, and the stories and poems started flooding in. We published the first book of the Read for Animals series, and the first $100 donation was made to Columbia Greene animal shelter of NY, thanks to animal lovers who purchased the book.
The second book in the Read for Animals series will be published this week. Some stories will make you laugh out loud; others will warm your heart and make you cry. Some stories are true, and the fantasy stories will make you think… what if? Each author and poet brings their unique writing style, to make the book enjoyable.
Thank you for helping our furry, scaly and feathered friends in need, by purchasing this book. Have fun, post about your animals and share their stories.
You can find the buying links to the first book in the pinned post’s comments, and we will add the links to the second book as soon as it will be published.
The "Meet the Authors" schedule will be posted when the event starts.

The book is now available in ebook, coming in print soon

Chicken love

Ashley Warcewicz sent these awesome pictures of her chickens and she wrote:
"Not many people will think about a chicken being a pet but I have pet chickens. And it may be surprising but chickens have personalities too! My chickens enjoy running the backyard eating bugs and dust bathing in the sun!! They lay me beautiful eggs everyday and gather to greet everyone at the door! Mr. rooster even snuggles if you pick him up and put his head under your arm. Chicken love!"

Heroic cat

People rescuing animals, animals saving people or other animals. Their act of kindness usually go unnoticed, but they deserve the recognition. If you have a story, send it to my Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/ReadForAnimals and I will post it on this blog.
I will start this blog post series by telling you my heroine cat, Spotty's story.


The Brave Protector
Our cat Spotty stayed indoors most of the time. She felt safe in the backyard only when we were outside with her. My hubby and I were relaxing, enjoying our afternoon coffee on the patio one day and watching the hummingbirds drinking nectar from the flowers on the windowsill. Spotty took a catnap beside my feet. Our shepherd Lucky was snapping at the pesky flies in the shade.
Our peaceful time was interrupted when my hubby’s friend pulled into the backyard. He got out of the car, quickly opened the backdoor and let out his Rottweiler, who ran over to the azalea bushes.
“I’ll put the leash on him in a minute. He just had to go bad - it was a long ride,” he said. With leash in hand, he started walking after his dog.
Worried, I stood up, but my hubby was already standing by our dog ready to protect her. Past experiences taught us to be cautious when Crow was around. He had attacked our dog before when he wasn’t securely tied up on the leash.
I was watching hubby’s friend approaching his dog, but before he could get close, the dog bolted and ran toward us. My hubby yelled as his friend tried to catch Crow. I watched in horror, but I was afraid to move. Our dog cowered behind my hubby.
Suddenly I heard a loud cry. I saw Spotty darting, charging like a bullet toward the approaching Rottweiler. She pounced, let out a furious growl and sank her needle sharp claws in the dog’s face. Crow yelped as he tried to shake the cat off his face. Spotty wouldn’t let go and kept growling.
Hubby’s friend finally caught up with the Rottweiler and clipped the leash on the dog’s collar. My hubby tried to peel Spotty off the Rottweiler’s face.

After a brief struggle, she let go. Hubby put her down. The cat puffed her hair, indignantly hissed a few times, and then walked to our shaking dog. She licked Lucky’s face as if she was saying, “Don’t worry, buddy, I will always protect you.”

I added her story to the book we published to help animals, Read for Animals. You can find links on the sidebar, when you purchase the book in any format, you are helping animal shelters. The royalty paid from the sales is donated to shelters.

About the Read for Animals project


I was thinking about how to help animals in shelters and in animal hospices other than donating money I could afford. What can I do as a writer to help animals in need? I had an idea. I'm a writer; I can write, sell the book and donate the money - after publishing fees - to animal shelters. I started putting together the short stories I have written the past few years and asked my animal lover author, poet and artist friends if they'd like to participate in my Read for Animals project. The response was overwhelming, the stories and poems started flooding in and together we made this book possible to help our furry, scaly and feathered friends.

Some of the stories we put together in this anthology will make you laugh out loud; others will warm your heart and perhaps make you cry. Some stories are true and the fantasy stories will make you think, what if? Each author and poet brings their unique writing style to this anthology for a good cause. Enjoy the book, and thank you for helping our furry, scaly and feathered friends in need by purchasing this book.

My name is Erika M Szabo
I’ve been writing Alternative Medicine related books in English and Hungarian. I love healing as passionately as I love to write and read. Growing up with a father who was a closet reader (having a macho image allowed him to read only in secret which he shared with me after I caught him reading my book ‘The lady of the camellias’ and he left a few teardrops on the pages) he introduced me to many great books. I was playing with the idea of writing a fantasy story peppered with historical facts for a while. The history of the Huns always fascinated me - they were my ancestors - although I decided that it was a stupid idea after I started reading about how to write a fiction book - I am not a literary genius, I have no idea how to create a good story line or form characters and make up a plot - I thought, but the idea didn’t leave me alone. I kept adding events and dialogs in my head to Ilona’s story.
Not knowing how to do something properly had never prevented me from a accepting a good challenge before, so I sat down by the computer and began writing. I've never been good at following rules or formulas, therefore I discarded the instructions and I made up my own rules. I began writing Ilona's story as a diary. Just for my own enjoyment, writing down the ideas that are swirling in my head is far better than being haunted by them. I thought. I kept writing for months, and soon I realized that I never had so much fun doing anything in my life before.

My books:
Genre: fantasy/suspense/mystery

(Available in one book and separately book 1 Foresight and book 2 Acceptance) Read more on my WEBSITE

Coming of age, a door closed in Ilona’s life and a door opened toward an uncertain future. Ilona is a doctor, born into an ancient tribe which still exists hidden amongst us with its fiercely enforced rules. She doesn’t know much about her heritage besides legends and rituals, but begins to remember the forgotten instructions concealed as rhymes. She has been secretly and hopelessly in love with her best friend, when fate brings Zoltan into her life.  The sudden magnetic feeling frightens her. Will he break her heart, or will he bring true happiness? She discovers growing magical abilities within her in the strange world of the Huns, which are beyond her wildest dreams. She can use her given gifts for absolute good or absolute evil; the choice is up to her. A sinister dark man appears, Ilona connects his presence with the series of mysterious deaths around her. Ilona is determined to control and guide her own life. Resourceful and daring, she crosses the line and breaks the sacred rules. She must face the consequences, which prompts her to start fitting the puzzle pieces together and discovering the ancient tribal secrets that not only can change her future, but the future of her people as well.

The Lighthouse Award requires that a blogger:
• Display the Award Certificate on your blog.
• Write a post and link back to the blogger that nominated you.
• Inform your nominees of their award nominations.
• Share three ways that you like to help others.
• Nominate as many bloggers as you like.

When I think about all the people who #blog and who make helping others a large part of their lives, there are too many to list. But here are some that I nominate for The Lighthouse Award:

Lorinda J. Taylor for volunteering to do the painstaking work of editing the “Read for Animals” project’s book.

Jeanne E. Rogers for educating people about endangered animals

Roy Murry for his tireless effort of promoting fellow authors
