Author H.L. Dancler, a Massachusetts local, is donating all of the proceeds from his debut novel, “A Father’s Journey,” to The One Fund Boston.
Anyone buying the book until Dec. 31 will know that 100 percent goes to the fund, he promises.
The book is the first in a two-part series about a documentarian whose long absences from his Newport home affect his life.
Dancler himself almost went to the marathon, but was visiting his youngest son instead.
