Back in April… (it doesn’t seem that long ago) my friend Alex started a friend group on Facebook so that we could all keep in touch.
I had the idea of putting together an anthology. I wrote a short story, but by then I think we were all feeling a little short of motivation.
However! My friend Leah (Leah Leanne Wood) sent me her story The Suitcase… as I read it, tears of joy formed and I had to continue with the project.
My friend Leah, pictured here. She is beautiful and bright 🙂
Soon, Alex Cavanagh (the skateboarding poet) joined in with a poem about his family.
Shaylah wrote a story about a Van Gogh inspired creepy artist.
Claire Kingsley wrote a story inspired by that Meme ‘OK Karen’
My story, Magic Pound was inspired by the end of my degree module Fairy Tales and Shakespeare’s Tempest.
We have sold 43 paperbacks and 11 Kindle downloads. Also, 111 Kindle Unlimited pages. This amounts to £33.86 I have rounded this up to £40 and sent the donation today to Bury Hospice in memory of Leah’s mum, Sam Hunt.
You can still buy What We Did During Lockdown HERE UK or HERE US I will donate the royalties straight to Bury Hospice.
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO BOUGHT A COPY AND TO MY FOUR FRIENDS WHO MADE THIS POSSIBLE
Happy reading, Samantha xx
