I’m interrupting my NaNo postings in order to promote a charity writing project that I was involved in. Stella Wilkinson is an author of young adult and paranormal romance novels and the editor of a series of short story anthologies (“Something to Take on the Trip”, “Something to Read on the Ride”, and “Something for the Journey”). Proceeds from the sale of these anthologies go to support Wallace and Grommit’s Grand Appeal (http://www.grandappeal.org.uk/) a fund drive benefiting Bristol Children’s Hospital. All 100 stories will be released in an omnibus addition this Thanksgiving. The stories cross all genres and each is short enough to be consumed (along with your morning coffee) during a commute. We hope they replace that jelly donut that you know you shouldn’t be eating. And to tempt the sci fi fans, there are stories from David Gerrold (author of “The Trouble with Tribbles”) and Kevin J. Anderson (co-author of the Dune prequels). It’s an odd feeling to have a story in a collection like this. Almost like rubbing shoulders with a Sleestak….
Note: I apologize for the 100% eel-free nature of this post.
