100 Stories for Queensland is Here!

100 Stories for Queensland is here! So, you can read some great stories (include “Soggy Shoes” by yours truly) and help with the recovery from recent devistating flooding in Queensland, Australia.

There is a good FAQ up on the official site. Here are some excerpts:

What is 100 Stories for Queensland?

100 Stories for Queensland is a charity anthology of flash fiction, that is, short stories of under 1000 words, in aid of the survivors of the worst flooding in history in the Australian state of Queensland.

100 Stories DOES NOT contain real life accounts of the floods. Everything between our covers is fiction – or so our authors tell us!

Where does the money go?

Money from the sale of the book goes to The Queensland Premier’s Flood Relief Fund.

100% of the sale price of the eBook is donated.

100% of the wholesale price (less printing costs) of the paperback is donated.

Ready to buy? Here are the options:
