Today, the Overcoming Adversity Anthology is blasting off! You remember a few weeks back bloggers around the sphere posted real life stories, flash fiction, poems, etc. on overcoming adversity? Well they've all been put into eBook format by Nick Wilford, and being sold as a fundraiser for his stepson with cerebral palsy. Soon to be in print as well!
This is such a great thing (and genius!) to do. My piece, along with many others, are included in this anthology and it's available now at
Also can be found on GoodReads. Be sure to mark it as "to read" with a quick click on the GoodReads name. It's such a great way to pay it forward. This isn't just another indie novel, this is a book filled with encouragement from your friends and mine, for a very worthy cause ...
This guy right here:
The anthology is part of a fundraising effort to send the editor's stepson, Andrew McNaughton, to a specialist college in England. Andrew has cerebral palsy, and is a remarkable young man with a promising future. However, the free further education options offered in his own country of Scotland will not challenge him and allow him to progress. In order to access the education he deserves, Andrew will have to pay exorbitant fees, thus creating a situation of discrimination.
Help us get Andrew to college by buying a book that runs the full gamut of human emotions, ultimately leaving you inspired and glad to be alive. Whatever struggles you are going through, our sincere hope is that this book will help.
I'm sure you'll be seeing a lot of Andrew around the blogosphere today. Learn more about him and Nick Wilford at Nick's blog Scattergun Scribblings. If everyone buys from one of the links above over the next few days, we can all help put Overcoming Adversity on the map.
Also, Sharon Bayliss' book, The Charge is out for sale now on Amazon. Sharon will be here in a few weeks to share a bit about her book. It sounds incredibly cool.
Have you heard about Overcoming Adversity? Do you have a piece published inside? If not, is there a time you overcame adversity? I'd love for you to share it in the comments!
