I don't usually post anything about my writing career on this blog. I have a separate blog for that but this is important and for a good cause.
Stories of Strength is an anthology to help raise money for hurricane victims. Writers at Absolutewrite.com joined together for this special project. Disaster relief charities such as The Red Cross, Americares and Salvation Army will receive 100 percent of the proceeds. SoS was published at Lulu.com a POD (Publish on Demand) company. They also generously agreed to donate their profits from the project.
Sos was officially released on November 1st. After only 6 days, we have sold 241 books, raising $1,226.69 for charity! Our goal is to raise at least $100,000.
Headed by Jenna Glatzer, author of Celine Dion biography For Keeps, this project attracted contributions from many well-known writers, including award-winning science fiction novelist Orson Scott Card, famed actor Wil Wheaton (Star Trek, Stand By Me), and Christian romance author Robin Lee Hatcher. More than 100 pieces from writers all over the world were contributed as well as editors and graphic designers donated their time to this project. Much thanks to them all.
