The Silver Leaf
Books (SLB) Partnership with the PTSA / PTA / School (Organization)
Program has been designed as a fundraiser for two purposes:
To help the Organization raise money to support the students
and school systems in their towns, by providing funds that can be
used for books, computers, program events, and numerous other
To help increase the recognition of a series that has been
called by reviewers “A grand work of high fantasy crafted by a
skilled and talented master of the genre.”
This program is
beneficial to all parties involved, and the potential for it is
endless. Review the next few sections for details on the program, as
well as the books and the author.
Author of The
Imperium Saga novels, Clifford B. Bowyer, has written a spin-off
series, The Adventures of Kyria, for younger audiences. This Fantasy
Adventure features Kyria, the twelve-year-old child prophesied to be
the savior of the world, as she experiences the initial threat to her
livelihood and struggles to come to terms with her destiny. Through
tragedy and triumph, she will fight to find a way to persevere and
become the savior that she has been prophesied to be.
Each book in The
Adventures of Kyria series sells for $5.99. The Organization will be
provided with an information packet for each student that includes
information on the books available for sale, and an order form. The
students will order the books, or sell copies of the books, and return
them to the Organization when completed (a designated timeline will be
established between the school and SLB to provide time for the sales
period). The compiled orders will then be submitted to SLB.
40% ($2.40 per book sold) will be provided to the Organization
for all sales submitted as part of this fundraiser. There will be
no limitations imposed on the number of books that may be ordered, or
the amount of money that can be raised.
The top three students with the most sales will also receive an added
incentive: a free autographed copy of each novel in The Imperium
Saga: Fall of the Imperium Trilogy series (mailed directly to the
students when available, an $83.85 value).
Silver Leaf Books will send the ordered books to a single location
designated by the Organization. The Organization will then be
responsible for further distribution to the students in whatever
method they deem appropriate.
About the Author
Clifford B. Bowyer
is the son of Marilyn, a former teacher’s aid at the Holliston
Elementary School, and Warren Bowyer, a former Canton High School
teacher. From an early age, he had been raised with an appreciation
for the school systems and education.
his Undergraduate studies at Bryant College a semester early with a
BS/BA in both Management and Marketing. Upon his return to Holliston,
he was nominated for public office for the Finance Committee with a
strong standpoint to increase the funding for the local school
systems, as well as the police and fire departments.
He also acquired
his Graduate degree from Babson College, and currently focuses on his
writing and the promotion of his novels.
His idea for the
Partnership with the PTSA / PTA / Schools originated from a pair of
factors. First, he received information about a fundraiser from his
nephew’s school. The fundraiser was for magazine subscriptions, and
the school acquired under a dollar for sold subscriptions that were at
a minimum, $19.99. Second, shortly after graduating from Bryant
College, Bowyer had maintained a Marketing Manager position where his
company had forged a partnership with the local schools, helping to
raise money for the schools, as well as a variety of other events
(such as food drives for the homeless).
By combining these
two ideas, he felt that through the sale of books, an item that
promotes reading and has value to children, the school systems can
raise even more money by gaining a higher percentage of sales of a
lower cost product, while at the same time providing exposure to his
writing and novels.
Attached you will
find information about the books currently available and those that
will be available by the conclusion of this school year. We hope that
you will be as excited and optimistic about this program as we are.
Clifford B. Bowyer
has volunteered to be the contact person for this program, and will be
happy to work with the Organization to see that this program is a
success. He also is willing to make himself available for public
appearances, guest speaking, and book signings if the Organization
would desire it upon completion of the program.
