"Life is never easy, Joseph. We all have our battles to fight."

On Black Friday, Author Paul H. Magid is launching "The Good Karma Charity Author Event for Sarcoma Cancer Research" to sell 100,000 copies of his novel, Lifting the Wheel of Karma, by New Year’s Eve. During this time, all of the publisher profits from those 100,000 copies, up to $500,000, will be donated to Sarcoma Cancer Research.
Lifting the Wheel of Karma is a majestic tale about a tormented boy who embarks on a profound journey of extraordinary healing and enlightenment.
Mr. Magid chose Sarcoma cancer research for the charity donation because his girlfriend Sharon’s younger brother, David, died of Sarcoma cancer at the age of 25. David was just 18 years old when he first found the lump in his right shoulder area, the same age as the protagonist, whose life takes an unimaginable turn, in Mr. Magid’s spiritual novel.
Sarcoma accounts for between 15 and 20% of all childhood cancers, yet receives less than 1% of cancer research funding. It is often fast growing, undiagnosed, or misdiagnosed. Many of us, if not all of us for that matter, need the help of others on our journey. This was certainly the case for Mr. Magid, which is what led him to write a novel about a boy who must overcome penetrating adversity.
It was while Mr. Magid on his own painful path that he came to learn the many spiritual ideas that are woven into the fabric of his novel, and it was those experiences that inspired him to launch "The Good Karma Charity Author Event for Sarcoma Cancer Research."
Lifting the Wheel of Karma is a beautiful tale that has already touched the hearts of readers from all walks of life and it is Mr. Magid’s hope that people will continue to enjoy this wonderfully uplifting story, while helping to contribute to a much needed cause this holiday season.
