Neverland's Library

Postby hardboileddimension » Mon May 13, 2013 7:51 pm

Before you ask, I'm not an editor or contributor to this project. I have nothing personal to gain. The anthology does have local ties to my area and a percentage of proceeds go to a good cause. That's the two reasons I'm sharing. It's a SF anthology based on the theme of rediscovery.

You can use this link to donate, submit a story, or both. I believe they're paying 3 cents a word.

Sounds interesting,

But it's Fantasy not SF.

And I think they need to explain what "First Book" is.

But still sounds like a good idea. That cover art is going to be great.

Looks like a neat anthology. I'm flat-ass broke, but I'll spread the word.

I thought it was that but they still need an explanation on the fund raising site.

There is. You must have missed it, LD. :)

What is First Book?

First Book is a non-profit organization working to provide educational resources and literature for children in impoverished areas across Canada and the US. For every $10 received, they're able to get 4 books.

We have a quick video explaining a bit more about who they are, and what we hope to do. You can find that in our "Updates" tab (go to the bottom, and click "See more activity" or watch it on YouTube here.
