When I saw the post on Facebook by Emma about this book I knew straight away I had to sign up. An anthology of stories written by authors I admire, well what was not to want to get your grubby hands on…but that was not the main reason why I signed up straight away. The sale proceeds for this anthology will be donated to Help the Heroes. For those of you who do not know why this hits me more than most, well I am married to a soldier.
When I was pregnant, he was away in Afghan. When mini-me was born, he was sent away for most of her first year and wasn’t home for her first birthday. Since then he has missed more and more of her life due to being in the armed forces so I always try to give back more to this charity than any other because this is our life and touch wood *I touch my head* anything happens to him or my friends, then I know that this charity will be here to help.
Well, that is my thought on the matter, what does Emma have to say?
As the blurb tells us, When Stars Will Shine is a multi-genre collection of Christmas themed short stories complied to raise money for our armed forces and every penny made from the sales of both the digital and paperback copies will be donated to the charity.
Working closely with Kate Noble at Noble Owl Proofreading and Amanda Ni Odhrain from Let’s Get Booked, I’ve been able to pick the best of the submissions to bring you a thrilling book which is perfect for dipping into at lunchtime or snuggling up with on a cold winter’s night. I have been completely blown away by the support we’ve received from the writing and blogging community, especially the authors who submitted stories and Shell Baker from Baker’s Not So Secret Blog, who has organised the cover reveal and blog tour.
When Stars Will Shine is available for pre-order now and will be published on 9 December 2019.
There isn’t anyone in the country who hasn’t benefited from the sacrifices our troops, past and present, have made for us and they all deserve our thanks.
It has been an honour to work on these stories and to create this anthology and I hope you enjoy reading the stories as much as I have.
