Virginia Beach has long been a place that people associate with beaches, nightlife, and a retreat from the stressors of the world; where the sun can shine down on you and your cares are washed away briefly by the ocean waves.

On May 31, 2019 those waves went dark with the tragic shooting of 16 innocent people – 12 fatality; the latest in a long line of senseless shootings in the world. Turning a place known for relaxation – Dark.

This book is to honor those who lost their lives in this this tragedy. All proceeds will be donated to the Virginia Beach Tragedy Fund c/o United Way South Hampton Roads.

The anthology will be available until November 2020 at which point it will go out of print and the official charity for the victims will close.

Scares That Care charity weekend event is something you should all do… I did. Several listeners went as well. And while we were there, we taped this episode… be afraid. Writing questions, tips and tricks no one tells you, some forehead flicking (Buda) and then a spew that started with customer service, flirted with problem solving, and wrapped everything back around in a ribbon of insanity and gave birth to this week’s hashtag: #conboobs. It was fun. And special thanks to those in attendance: Alicia, Armand, Chuck, Frank, Tom, Nick, Annalise, Jess, Shayla, Ava, Chad, Amber, Dave, and Chris.
