Yesterday I delivered a cheque for £64.83 to Cancer Research in Ryde, Isle of Wight, England for the proceeds to date of sales in the UK from A FESTIVE FEAST.
The eBook has raised £56.32 so far and the paperback made £8.51.
I find it amazing that (even though this is a small amount) a simple idea can raise money for this fantastic charity. Hopefully, the collection gives readers some enjoyment and the writers the thrill of having their work published in a collection.
Thank you to the following authors for including their short story:
Samantha Bacchus @Sammylou37
Sonia Wright @neckache
Angela Kelman @Gelakel
Karen Einsel @K_Einsel
Mackenzie Brown @mackbrownbooks
Gary Henson @garyalanhenson
Dona Watson @DonaWatson
James Smith @James_Sm1th
Joanne Phillips @JoanneGPhillips
Samantha Croft @samcroftauthor
Steve Venables @Ir0nbark
And thank you to any of you who purchased the book, which is dedicated to the memory of my cousin, Alaistair, who died of brain cancer aged 27. So many people close to my heart have suffered from Cancer, it breaks my heart. But I hope in some small way this donation will help and perhaps we can raise more money in the future ... especially at Christmas Time.
If any authors out there would like to add a story to this collection please get in touch, read the submissions guidelines. The more the merrier...
Thank you for reading,
