Free Reign Press will make a donation to the September 11 Fund to benefit New Yorkers for every copy of Bayside native Scott Steins novel Lost sold from the publishers Web site, wwwfreereignpress.com for $10 ($22.95 retail).
Lost, profiled in the Jan. 25 Qguide, is set entirely in Manhattan. The dust-jacket features an illustration of New York City, with a close-up of the Empire State Building and the Twin Towers behind it. The cover is hard to look at now with the word LOST in big letters, said Stein. But, despite the horrible events of September II, it remains a humorous book. It will remind readers of a New York that seems far away, where petty complaints and misunderstandings were among the biggest problems and made for good comedy. At times like these, people still need a good laugh, and might want to escape and remember how New York used to be.
My book is all I have to offer -- if it helps people laugh and raises a few dollars for New Yorkers at the same time, that would make me very happy."
Free Reign Press hopes to be able to donate 20 to 30 percent of the money it takes in for sales of Lost hardcover first editions which will be autographed by the author
