How a short story turned into a book to help charity

Please welcome my dear friend Pauline Barclay ....

So what's this all about Pauline?

 A few months ago, Gary Walker from Look 4 Books suggested that maybe authors featured on his web site might like to contribute a short story to produce a book that could be sold with all proceeds going to charity. After several weeks of hard work from a number of the authors, especially Elaine Chissick, The Look 4 Books Medley of Short Stories became a published reality on 26th May 2015.

In total eighteen authors contributed short stories creating a wonderful mix from tales that will make you smile to some that will have you sitting on the edge of your chair!

All proceeds from the sales will be donated equally between two UK charities, Alzheimer's Society, and the Autistic Society in the UK.

Here are a few words on my contribution… Getting Noticed.  

When Sue Potter lost over six stone in weight and could easily slip into a size 12 dress, all she wanted was for her husband to notice. Desperate to catch his eye, she hit on an idea when passing a car showroom that would guarantee he couldn’t miss her. At least she hoped that would be the case!

These are all top selling authors so you will be in good company reading this collection of fabulous short stories. Note the 18 button! This is because there are one or two raunchy ones too!

Sit back and enjoy!

Available in Kindle from ALL Amazon sites

Thank you for leaving a comment - it should appear soon, but Blogger sometimes chucks its teddies out of the cot and has a tantrum. My apologies if you leave a comment and I do not respond - blame it on Blogger Bloopers. If you are having problems, contact me on author AT helenhollick DOT net and I will post it for you. Sometimes a post will appear as anonymous instead of your name or avatar - I draw attention to this being another Blogger Blooper and NOT of MY doing... That said ...SPAMMERS or distasteful rudeness will be stamped on, squashed, composted and very possibly cursed - if you spam my blog, next time something nasty happens to you just remember that I DID warn you...
