Overcoming Adversity Anthology Release!

It's finally here!

This book has been put together for a very an amazing young man. Andrew has cerebral palsy and the options he has to further his education, are limited where he is from. Thus, many fabulous writers joined together to produce this anthology in order to help Andrew pay the fees he'll need to go to college! GO ANDREW!

Blurb:
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.

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.

To help support Andrew, you make find this anthology:

Editor Bio: Nick Wilford is a writer and stay-at-home dad. Once a journalist, he now makes use of those rare times when the house is quiet to explore the realms of fiction. When not writing he can usually be found spending time with his family or cleaning something. He has four short stories published in Writer’s Muse magazine. Nick is also co-running a campaign to get a dedicated specialist college built in Scotland. Visit him at http://nickwilford.blogspot.co.uk/.

Also, a special shout out to D.R. Cartwright and Ella for the concept and design for the cover. Excellent work ladies!
Best of luck in college Andrew! Thanks for your amazing story of inspiration!

Did you just get a new header or did I not notice. I like it. Love the colors of the flowers.

Just was at Kyra L's blog and saw this too. Got my copy at Amazon. It'll be fun to read what everybody wrote; I recognize so many names.
