Campaigner Challenges 2011

Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Reader Store | Smashwords

What is an imago? Can you imagine a "synbatec"? Do you know how many different ideas are sparked by a cliche phrase?

Up to 400 participants took up the challenges Rachael Harrie thought up for her "Platform Building Campaign".

176 of these flash stories are collected in this anthology in memoriam of Harry Moseley. Despite his brain tumor, Harry raised 85,000GBP for Cancer Research before he died, aged eleven. This book supports his charity.

I have three flash fiction pieces in this anthology: When A Door Opens, It Usually Closes Afterwards; You Are an Imago in the Publishing World but Sometimes Even Spiders Are Shown Mercy; and Just When You Think It's Going to Be Okay.

Overcoming Adversity: An Anthology for Andrew

Amazon UK | Amazon US | Smashwords

A collection of seventy moving and uplifting original pieces - real life, flash fiction, and poetry - about battling against the odds and the ultimate triumph of the human spirit. The contributors include Amazon bestselling authors Alex J. Cavanaugh and Kyra Lennon, and the cream of upcoming talent.

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 have one flash fiction piece in this anthology: Overcoming Adversity.
