Author Nancy Stancill shared this note with her Facebook friends this afternoon:
“I’m excited to let you know that I’m pledging royalties from Saving Texas to an organization dear to my heart, Investigative Reporters and Editors.
“Royalties from the first thousand books sold will go to IRE’s endowment to support the Godfrey Wells Stancill Fellowship.
“The fellowship so far has paid expenses for six journalists from small papers to attend the IRE conference to learn investigative reporting techniques.
“My family raised money for the fellowship in memory of our wonderful dad, a lifelong newspaper guy. Details posted today on www.ire.org, the IRE’s website!”
