Proceeds from New Young Adult Book Series to Benefit Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month

'No One Dies in the Garden of Syn' by author Michael Seidelman features a teenager who suffers from cystic fibrosis, and it explores themes that are valuable in spreading awareness of the disease to younger and otherwise less-informed readers; in addition to various charitable book donations, a large percentage of profits during May will go directly to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Vancouver (April 2017) – This week, Vancouver-based author Michael Seidelman announced that in the upcoming month of May, Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month, his latest book will participate in multiple promotions to help raise money and spread awareness of the fatal genetic respiratory disease affecting many young people. Published in April of 2016, No One Dies in the Garden of Syn is the first of a series of young adult fantasy books.  

No One Dies in the Garden of Syn follows Synthia “Syn” Wade, a teenager with cystic fibrosis. One day, she is pushed into a pond by an unseen stranger and finds herself in a world where illness and death don’t exist. But this apparent utopia holds many dangers and dark secrets, including an ominous figure that has sinister plans for her.

Seidelman says, “The more I researched cystic fibrosis for my series of books, the more I wanted to help raise awareness of this devastating disease while also raising money to help find a cure. This May I am participating in Book Fairy drops, book donations, and donation of book sales to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.”

Seidelman is having a “Book Fairy” drop in three countries and four cities on May 10th, including New York’s Books on the Subway program, London’s Books on the Underground, and in both Toronto and Montreal as part of Canada’s Books on the Transit program. These drops will feature hidden copies of the book in the subway and transportation systems.

Additionally, copies of the book will be donated to Ronald McDonald Houses in the participating cities.

Lastly, 50% of all profits from book sales in May are to be donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
