A little while ago I was asked to participate in a charity anthology that's a bit different (for me.) Instead of short stories, this anthology was to contain writerly advice.
Er…it's funny, because when it comes to fiction, I can usually get something going in my head. But advice? That's hard. Not only is it non-fiction, but I don't feel like I am in any position to give advice.
Yes, I'm published, but honestly, sometimes I feel like it was just luck that got me here. I still feel like I'm flailing half the time. There are all these rules I'm supposed to follow but don't, I never write a book the same way twice, I'm not really a plotter, but I'm not a pantser…basically, I'm a mess.
But somehow, I managed to come up with a sliver of wisdom for this anthology, which I'm so proud to be a part of. I'm sharing the pages with some really amazing authors who dole out smart advice and wonderfully inspiring stories.
So if you're an aspiring author or you're already published, or even if you have no inclination to write at all, you might find insight into the minds of your favorite authors interesting. And you'll be supporting cancer research at the same time.
Harry Moseley, the boy who raised over £500,000 for Cancer Research UK, is no longer with us – but his legacy lives on.
"Britain's Kindest Kid", Harry was more than a nice kid with a big heart; he was a real life hero. A hero with an inoperable brain tumor who tragically lost his battle with cancer at the much-too-young age of 11.
Harry’s, “Help Harry Help Others" campaign continues his fundraising work in hopes that one day soon, there will be a cure for brain tumors. Joining Harry's quest for research funds are an amazing group of romance writers, along with a wonderful cover artist, who have put together an inspiring anthology to raise money for Cancer Research UK, in memory of Harry Moseley.
"Author Moments II" is a collection of essays written by these talented writers. From the New York Times bestselling lists to the writer who is just beginning their quest, you will find this anthology filled with generous writing advice and anecdotes. It won’t matter where you are on your road to publication or even in your life journey, Author Moments II will fill you with love, laughter and a renewed hope that all things are possible when you care enough to come together and make a difference.
Like real life hero, Harry Moseley.
The Authors Helping Harry invite you to pitch in with them to help find a cure simply by purchasing a copy of this wonderful anthology.
*As a bonus, each author has included an excerpt from one of their current, or upcoming, releases.
