When Betsy mentioned having a book of short stories for sale, by Christmas for the profits to go to Charity, This was in September, and I said "Yes, great idea, let me know how I can help, and of course without payment"
as did every single other person involved with the project, and what a project it has been.
I am absolutely honoured to have worked with over40 authors from various backgrounds, some I have met previously, some on the launch night, and others to meet.
It was decided that we would have a launch party to thank everyone for their involvement, this was held at Parcel Yard in a function room, at Kings Cross, London.
Limited Tickets went on sale and all proceeds paid for the hire, and drinks on the night, No profit was made from this, again showing the dedication and what a great event it was.
The tickets sold out like hot cakes, and the event was a total success, well it couldn't be anything less with the amazing talent, and teamwork in the room.
The atmosphere, was amazing, as you can tell by the pictures.
It really was also like spot the author and playing book bingo, with which author, which story and what page, I luckily got all bar one! My daughter who dedicated her story as an upcoming author as a bonus story, in the back of the book attended the event, and lorded it over me that she got a full house! Managing to get every author at the event to sign her book.
I am honestly more than honoured to be involved and if that wasn't great news enough, we had sold out of two print runs exceeding expectations of paperback copies.
Then the following morning finding out we were no 1 in the short story download chart.
Really was the icing on the cake.
he reviews and feedback from the book has been astounding, with so much talent all crammed into this book, which really is a heifer of a book.
Like many, I am not usually a fan of short stories, but can tell you this book really has changed my mind on that score.
It is available in Paperback, E copy Downloads and soon available in Audio.
I have the E copy, and Paperback, to be signed and shall look forward to the Audio, How will you purchase yours? Make your next purchase count.
Brilliant Book for A two Brilliant Charities.
