El Chupacabra – A History of the Mystery

In the podcast, I mention that I am currently selling signed books for charity. If you purchase a signed copy of Whiteout ($20) or Man of the Mountain ($15) through me, I will pay the shipping (domestic, international I’ll need some help), and all the profits will go to support Feeding America. We’re in the middle of a very weird time right now across the world and I want to help however I can. To place an order, go ahead and shoot me an e-mail (AshtonDMacaulay@Gmail.com) or message me on Twitter (@RealMacAshton). For more info on the books, check out my author page.
Stay safe, wash your hands, and reach out if you need anything.
