Look What Came In The Mail

It's Out!

Being under the weather during Spring Break, I missed that March 4th was the release date for the paperback of 100 Stories for Haiti. Over 400 writers submitted stories, and my SF short short story "Three Drink Minimum" was one of the 100 stories selected for the anthology. The authors come from the U.K., U.S., Australia, Ireland, Canada, Austria, Botswana, Finland, Germany and the Netherlands -- amusingly the stories are arranged alphabetically by title, so I'm located on pp. 247-249 of the paperback. All proceeds are going to the British Red Cross' efforts in Haiti, one of many organizations which are still working there.

I'd ordered three copies back in February -- and today the P.O. Box had a key to one of the package lockers. Inside were three tightly wrapped packages held together with rubber bands. Cool! NOTE: I understand if you order 5 or more copies you may get a break on the P&P shipping charges, as it gets shipped directly from the publisher.

You can find more information, including ordering the paperback from the U.K. or the eBook, at 100 Stories for Haiti. I'll probably get a copy of the eBook for my Sony eReader -- if you order the eBook, you set the price.

The world may be going on and there are even other disasters to worry about such as the Chilean earthquake. But the work in Haiti is not over and a lot of people did a lot of effort to get this from zero to book in just six weeks.
