From the August 16th newsletter of author Julia Huni:
At the beginning of the month, my friend, writer and editor extraordinaire Kate Pickford, (she writes under pen names so you won’t find much on Amazon) posted on her Facebook page that her brother’s 79-year-old mother-in-law was being kicked out of her home by an unscrupulous cousin who owns 2/3 of the house. Her nephews (16-year-old twins) had started a GoFundMe page to help Grandma Erada buy out the cousin.
Kate was looking for ways to help raise funds. She offered developmental editing services–helping you make your story better–which are totally worth the ticket price! But most authors are closer to the “barely scraping by” end of the financial spectrum. However, one thing we can do is write. Kate saw a book cover that spoke to her, and Hellcats was born.
Over the past two weeks, nearly 150 writers and friends have banded together to create the Hellcats anthology. Dozens of stories have been submitted, accepted, edited, rewritten, and approved for inclusion. If you know anything about writers, the fact that an anthology could be pulled together in two weeks is mind-boggling.
The plan is for Hellcats to go live on September 1st.
Book Review Gal here: Another author I follow sent his newsletter subscribers his entry for this collection, and it’s hilarious. Please mark your calendars for September 1 (which happens to be my late father’s birthday — he’d be turning 92 if he was still with us) to buy this anthology and help Grandma Erada. Through one small purchase, we can collectively rescue an elderly woman from an unscrupulous relative. If the book is available for preorder, please commit.
