3 days until release

Fiona "McDroll" and I issued a challenge at Ron Earl Phillips' Flash Fiction Friday and Fictionaut; we would donate $5 and 5 pounds to charity for each story about lost or neglected children. We raised over $600. We've now collected the top 30 stories from the challenge in an e-book anthology and all proceeds will go to PROTECT: The National Association to Protect Children (www.protect.org) and Children 1st Scotland (www.children1st.uk.org)

We have stories from around the world: America, Scotland, England, Canada, Australia, Hong Kong, Portugal, India, Poland and the Sudan.

All 30 Contributors:
David Ackley, Kevin Aldrich, David Barber, Lynn Beighley, Seamus Bellamy, Paul D. Brazill, Sif Dal, James Lloyd Davis, Roberto C. Garcia, Susan Gibb, Nancy A. Hansen, K.V. Hardy, Gill Hoffs, Fiona "McDroll" Johnson, J.F. Juzwik, MaryAnne Kolton, Benoit Lelievre, Veronica Marie Lewis-Shaw, Vinod Narayan, Paula Pahnke, Ron Earl Phillips, Thomas Pluck, Sam Rasnake, JP Reese, Chad Rohrbacher, Susan Tepper, Luca Veste, Michael Webb, Nicolette Wong and Erin Zulkoski.

The e-book anthology is available in the following formats:
$2.99 for Kindle, Kindle Cloud Reader and Kindle for Phone and Desktop at Amazon.com
$2.99 for Adobe PDF, epub format, mobi format, Kobo, Sony e-reader and readable online at Smashwords
$2.99 for Nook in the Barnes & Noble store (also available via Smashwords, if you use Calibre e-book manager)
$2.99 at the Apple iBookstore (pending approval)

For 10 cents a story, that lets your donation mean $1 to both PROTECT and Children 1st after retailers take their fees.

Join us and make a difference while you read 30 great examples of flash fiction in many genres by writers from around the world. If you don't have an e-reader, you can download the Kindle for PC or Kindle for Mac app, the Nook for PC or Nook for Mac app (if you don't like Amazon) or view it online at Smashwords, or download it as an Adobe PDF file. You can also read epubs on the Adobe Digital Editions reader for PC and Mac.
