It’s been just over six months since the Haiti earthquake. Just six weeks after the event, 100 Stories for Haiti was published, the result of many hours of editing by Greg McQueen’s team of volunteers. Over 400 stories were submitted and whittled down to the hundred presented in the print and electronic volume. Proceeds go to helping the victims of the Haiti earthquake.
I am proud to have my story ‘Impact’ included in 100 Stories for Haiti. Since publication in March this year, sales of the book have raised over £3,000 for the Red Cross relief effort in Haiti. While this is a great achievement, it would of course be brilliant if the book could raise even more money to help those still in need in Haiti.
100 Stories for Haiti is a wonderful collection that includes all sorts of stories by all sorts of writers. If you like flash fiction and haven’t yet bought a copy, I urge you to buy a copy of this book. The professionally produced audiobook, Stories for Haiti, is available on iTunes and audible.com
If you want to find out more about how this amazing book came into being, check out the 100 Stories Podcast, which includes interviews with the writers, editors and publishers involved. Episode 2 features an interview with my good(?) self in which Greg McQueen’s sympathetic interview style manages to make me sound like I know what I am talking about.
It really would fantastic to see the total funds raised by this great collection continue to rise over the next six months. In order to see that happen, please, buy this book.
