Lulu -- Stories of Strength Anthology

Jenna Glazter decided to go with Lulu.com to publishStories of Strength, an anthology of short stories, essays and poems. All proceeds (100%) will go to several charities for hurricane relief efforts. My essay, Perseverance, is in the anthology along with many writers from AbsoluteWrite.com Well-known writers Wil Wheaton, Robin Lee Hatcher and Orson Scott Card have contributed pieces to the anthology as well. Stories of Strength is in its final stages of editing before publication. Thank you Lulu for all the wonderful things you’re doing.

A lot of people worked very hard to get this project where it is now. See the Stories of Strength website for all that's going on. Thanks to Dawno and her friends for the flashing banner, too. I tried using it, but it wouldn't flash for me. :(

We’ll keep you posted so you can help the efforts by purchasing a copy of the book from Lulu.

Make me smile. Leave a comment...
