Anthology "Campaigner Challenges 2011" Now At Smashwords!
Mine was titled: "The Synbatec Island Caper", a 300 word challenge using three made-up words (Synbatec being one of them; wastopaneer, and tacies the other two), used in such a way that it sounded like actual words the characters used in speach, etc. I was amazed at how so many of us simply wrote these made-up words into our pieces. Some of these were really funny. Others were interesting and fresh.
You may have stopped by mine and various other blogger/writers who took the challenge this year with Rach Writes while the challenge went on from September into October. We had three challenges, I took part in only two. It was fun. I know I had a lot of people from this challenge stop by, became followers, and made nice comments on the pieces I wrote for the challenge. I was contacted and asked if I would like to donate any of the writings toward the "Help Harry Help Others" to raise money toward cancer research. All proceeds from this anthology goes toward this charity. I was happy to donate one story. All together there are 176 flash fiction, poems and articles in this anthology. The list price is $2.99 and here are the links for Smashwords and Amazon.http://www.amazon.com/Campaigner-Challenges-2011-ebook/dp/B0066UV28C
Please stop by and make a purchase. The charity is for a good cause. I learned in this email this morning that Harry Moseley, who was only 11 years old, was able to raise $137,000 (roughly in US dollars), and died on October 8th.
