Overcoming Adversity Launch!

Today I'm helping out a blogger buddy of mine, Nick Wilford, in the launch of his anthology, Overcoming Adversity.   

A collection of seventy moving and uplifting original pieces - real life, flash fiction, and poetry - about battling against the odds and the ultimate triumph of the human spirit. The contributors include Amazon bestselling authors Alex J. Cavanaugh and Kyra Lennon, and the cream of upcoming talent.

The anthology is part of a fundraising effort to send the editor's stepson, Andrew McNaughton, to a specialist college in England. Andrew has cerebral palsy, and is a remarkable young man with a promising future. However, the free further education options offered in his own country of Scotland will not challenge him and allow him to progress. In order to access the education he deserves, Andrew will have to pay exorbitant fees, thus creating a situation of discrimination.

Help us get Andrew to college by buying a book that runs the full gamut of human emotions, ultimately leaving you inspired and glad to be alive. Whatever struggles you are going through, our sincere hope is that this book will help.

  1. Thank you, Kathy! Your entry was excellent. :)

    I missed about Jess's blogfest. I'll be sure to give her a shout on Friday even if I don't manage to write an entry. Out of interest, can it be an all new story (not based on a WIP?)

  2. My best to Nick and Andrew!

  3. Nick- You're welcome! I hope it is a very successful launch!

    Yes, for Jess's blogfest it can be about a new character or an old one.

    Al- Thanks for stopping by.

  4. That cover is just perfect! I love the flowers. Congrats, Nick!
