HEAT ANTHOLOGY sales to benefit Indigenous Literacy

Heat coverEarlier this year, I held a summer writing competition for adults on this blog.

The winners were announced here and a selection of stories was chosen to be published in “Heat” an e-book anthology on Amazon.

Writers submitted compelling, well written pieces across a variety of genre. Some were new writers, others have many published works.

Each story is unique.

Congratulations to all the authors who have stories published in the book.

SALES OF BOOK TO AID LITERACY

All proceeds from sales of the anthology will benefit the Indigenous Literacy Foundation (ILF).

The ILF aims to raise literacy levels and improve the lives and opportunities of Indigenous children living in remote and isolated regions. This is done through the delivery of books and literacy resources, publishing and visits out to remote communities. In addition, the Foundation advocates to raise community awareness of Indigenous literacy issues

To enjoy the stories in this anthology and help the ILF, you can buy your copy of Heat online through Amazon by clicking on one of the links below:
