Best-selling author Karin Slaughter releases a new short story tomorrow - with all of her proceeds going to local libraries.
According to a press release issued by Slaughter's organization Save the Libraries, she has already generated more than $50,000 for libraries in DeKalb County, Georgia through various fundraising events.
Slaughter has experimented with web-only writing before, including placing a bonus chapter for her 2007 book "Beyond Reach" (known as "Skin Privilege" in the UK) on her website.
An outspoken library advocate, the author wrote a piece last year in the Atlanta Journal Constitution stating that "the funding of American libraries should be a matter of national security."
