Perfect Summer Beach Reading!!!

I was going to do a book review today, I was honest, but I get rather carried away this morning editing my friends wedding footage to make it into a DVD ready for their return from their honeymoon.  So instead I am going to give you the post I was going to do on Wednesday instead which is basically this…

Yes the book is now available as a paper back, am very excited and will be ordering a few copies for family on payday,  So if you don’t have a Kindle you no longer have any excuse not to buy and help out a very worthy cause while enjoying a great read.

Five Star Reviews

We are getting closer to the print version of Lupus Animus being released and I confess I am getting rather excitable about it!

For those who did not see the previous post about it here is the cover you should look out for…

And if you need any extra persuasion to shell out a couple of quid for a very worthy cause then maybe these 5 star reviews will tempt you!

This book was a brilliant idea that has allowed a charity to prosper.
The stories in this book were a delight to read as were the poems, each different and unique in their own way I absolutely loved reading this.

 

Lupus Animus: Charity Anthology is a compilation book with an abundance of treasured thoughts and stories geared towards the beloved wolf. Delightful poems full of life and promise, as well as rich stories filling the mood with mystery and resilience while pulling its reader in. A lot of heart went into writing these beautiful stories.

I love that this anthology is donating its profits to Artisan Rarebreeds an organization that is channelled directly into the care, accommodation, maintenance and improvement of their animal residents.

 

What can I say? This project is incredible! The stories and poems are filled with heart, and every word is a joy to read. This anthology is donating to a great cause, and there are entries in here to please everyone. You should definitely pick this up, I am sure you will find something you can enjoy!

If you are waiting for a print version then the wait is almost up, they are working through the proof copy as I type this, for now the links for the kindle version are here and please feel free to add it to you ‘to read’ list on Goodreads.

It’s Here! #LupusAnimus Yay!!!!!!!

In case you could not tell I am a little excited!

Just after Christmas I submitted a story to a Charity anthology raising money for Artisan Rarebreed, a charity which rescues animals here in the UK as well as breeding some rare breeds.

Today sees the launch of the E-Book version, with a paper version to follow in the next month so lets do the ‘official launch’ bit…

Can’t afford a donation to help out a charity? How about a book?

Right enough of being official please excuse me while I dance round the room. (No I am not wearing my shimmy belt and I am not videoing it before anyone asks.)  I think one of the reasons it is so exciting to be published in something like this is obviously firstly knowing you are helping a worthy cause but the second and more personal reason is vindication as a writer.  Doubt is a companion for most writers, but I think even more so for those who have or intend to self-publish, if you go down the traditional publishing route then at least one other person is saying they believe in your work, even if it is a small company or they just see pound signs in your writing but for the self-published it is a case of putting yourself out there and hoping.  By submitting and being accepted for this type of project or journals you get the support of others out there who are saying ‘yes you are good enough’ and by donating a story you both provide something the other holds of value and benefit each other.  So for me seeing this…10439225_10154207205205576_739493400_o

means just as much as the extra funds will to the good folks over at Artisan.  If you want to see more of the good work they do check out their Facebook page here.

I shall be reading my copy on my kindle heading to Stratford tomorrow, I shall grab a few postcards to send to friends around the world as well as posting a few pictures to my Twitter and Instagram feeds but the main thing is fingers crossed I am to film for this months Vlog from the birthplace of Shakespeare, if you would like to grab a copy of Lupus Animus here are the links and don’t forget the funds go to a good cause so if you love it tell your friends about it as well.  Right off to get dinner ready as daughter is staying here tonight prior to her birthday outing tomorrow.
