Buy The Gruff Variations today

Published on April 19, 2012 by

A while back, I mentioned that I was editing an anthology for Writing for Charity.  The anthology is now available as an ebook, and today we’re doing a “book bomb” to try to get it to rise high in the Amazon.com rankings by having as many people as possible buy it today.  All the royalties from the book will go to charities that buy books and school supplies for needy children. While the focus is on the Amazon Kindle rankings, it’s also available for Nook through Barnes & Noble, and for various other ereaders through Smashwords.

The Gruff Variations: Writing for Charity Anthology, Vol. 1 has over 100,000 words of stories and poems based on the Three Billy Goats Gruff.  Contributors to this anthology include New York Times best-selling author Shannon Hale, award-winning children’s picture book author Rick Walton, Hugo Award winner (and Nebula Award nominee) Mary Robinette Kowal, Edgar Award finalist Dene Low, Nebula Award nominees Brad R. Torgersen and Nancy Fulda, and many other authors such as Kristen Landon, Lisa Mangum, Kristyn Crow, Clint Johnson, and Dean Hale.  A full table of contents is below:

    Sorry I’m late to the party! I hope it went well. Let me know if you ever decide to do a print version so I can include it in my bibliography (or if you need help with the layout).
