The festive season gave me a good chance to think and the result is some more ideas for anthologies, which are listed on my Publishing Schedule. Kamla Daya in New Zealand introduced me to an exciting new writing challenge: Four words, for which I am grateful and I want to share this with you. It compliments the popular monthly writing prompt. Four words has already inspired some excellent submissions. I really want to keep discovering new contributors, so if you fancy the idea of writing but have never given it a go, why not try? You might surprise yourself. Send me your efforts and I'll let you know what I think.
WE HAVE SOLD 100 COPIES OF HOPE FOR UKRAINE. TELL FAMILY AND FRIENDS. WE WANT TO BREAK THIS RECORD!
Hope for Ukraine is now available in ebook (£9.99) and colour paperback (£18.50) and black and white paperback and hardback (£12.99/£18.50). The paperback is available in black and white or colour. Colour printing is considerably more expensive than black and white but because the book features artwork, some readers may prefer the colour edition.
Hope for Ukraine features the work of over 40 contributors from England, Scotland and Wales, the Republic of Ireland and as far away as Australia. It really is a fantastic group effort and a very powerful anthology featuring some excellent writing.
All royalties (minimum £5 per book) are being donated to the Sunflower of Peace Foundation (sunflowerofpeace.com), a non-profit organization committed to helping Ukrainians affected by the Russian military invasion.
