The Gage Project (in aid of children with cancer)

Some time ago I was asked to join a group of writers, editors and illustrators in “The Gage Project”.

It all began because one fourteen-year-old boy suffered from cancer and had to have surgery. Before long, more than forty writers and other artists had volunteered (all friends of his mother who is a writer), and together with Inknbean Press we created “The Gage Project”, an anthology of short stories, poems and art for children.

No one has been paid for their work, and as the profits will go to children with cancer, primarily via Ronald McDonald House, I trust that all my friends will help us spread the word – and perhaps buy a copy or two. I am sure you all know a child or teenager who would appreciate a book.

And for the first time ever, two of my flash fiction stories are in a paper-book 🙂

Of course you can also get the book via Amazon, both in paper format and as an e-book.
