So I’m quite excited to announce that my tiny prose piece “Anthony Burned a Hole in the Rain” is in a new anthology, Nonsensically Challenged Vol. 1.
The anthology, which includes 100 stories by as many authors, is being published on Amazon by writer/musician Christopher Fielden and is available in either print or Kindle format. Profits from sales of the book go to the Daisy Garland. The book is pretty cheap (£2.49 in the UK and $3.21 in the US for the Kindle edition, and £6.99 and $8.49 for the print), so not only is it a good deal for 100 stories, but you’ll be helping children with epilepsy.
Fielden is a pretty prolific author, but he also dedicates a lot of time to his website, which is a great resource for writers. He also offers challenges (such as the one I participated in, Lesley’s Nifty Nib-Nibbling Nonsensical Narrative Writing Challenge) and publishes most of the entries. In fact, right now, Fielden is looking for pieces for Vol. 2 of Nonsensically Challenged, so if you’re interested, you should check it out. There are some other challenges as well, so if nonsense isn’t your thing, there might be something else to interest you, so definitely take a look. Who knows? You may end up in a future anthology.
One more thing: If you do buy the anthology, two things: First of all, thank you. Second of all, if you like it, please consider leaving a review on Amazon. As I mentioned, not only would you be supporting the efforts of Christopher Fielden and the writers involved, but you will be helping a good cause as well.
