MWC 2012 Charity Anthology Now Available

I am pleased to reveal that the myWritersCircle 2012 charity anthology is now available via self-publishing site Lulu.

Tales from the Circle is a diverse collection of short stories by MWC members. The stories cover a wide range of genres, including crime, humor, romance, supernatural, horror, science fiction, and more. I've read it myself, and was genuinely impressed by the high standard of work from our talented world-wide membership base.

For anyone who may not know, my forum at has been running since 2005, and we have over 40,000 registered members. The authors represented in the book are a small selection of these folk, and all have donated their work free of charge.

Neither is the forum nor its sponsor The WCCL Network making any money from the anthology. All profits are donated to charity – in this case Sunflower House, a South African haven for sick children who require pain and symptom management and whose guardians need a period of respite or have died or fallen ill. So you can be sure your money will be going to a very worthy cause!

Tales from the Circle is available in print and e-book formats. You can buy the e-book as a PDF (good for reading on a personal computer or tablet) or in an EPUB version (suitable for most e-readers with the exception of the Amazon Kindle).

If you would like a Kindle version of Tales from the Circle, please buy the PDF or EPUB and then contact MWC moderator Andrewf by forum personal message (you will need to be a member and logged in to do this). Andrew will then arrange for a Kindle formatted version of the book to be sent to you once he has verified your purchase. Alternatively, it should be possible to buy the EPUB and convert it to Kindle format using Calibre or similar software (although I haven't tried this myself). In case anyone is wondering, we are not currently planning to sell a Kindle version via Amazon, as the royalty they pay is less than Lulu (meaning less money for our nominated charity).

Thank you again to the many MWC members who helped bring Tales from the Circle to fruition, and especially to chief editor and project co-ordinator Mairi Angus, cover artist (and much more) Patrick Fox, and tech guru Andrew Fairhurst. We couldn't have done it without you!
