A Jubilicious anthology for a good cause!

Bloggie friends!

On a wet and wild Jubilee weekend...

Charlie asks what else is there to do?


Except perhaps cuddle up to a bold and brave anthology like this!

Where I have a little story of unrequited love in it inspired by Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance!

All proceeds to this book will go to One in Four – a registered charity which provides support and resources to people who have experienced sexual abuse and sexual violence.

It’s only 99p = available here!

For the US, please go here, where it's only $ 1.55!

And the best is that not only are proceeds going to a great charity, Caroline Smailes (details here) who started this project got Nik Kershaw to write the intro to this anthology!

Nik Kershaw!!! Ahem!

May your week be full of music and stories!

Did you and Charlie have tea with the Queen and her puppies for the Jubilee? I like Charlie's look to the flowers. :) Kinda says it all!

It sounds like a very good project and well done you for getting a story in it!

Brian said...

I hate it that your Jubilee got wet Charlie!

Mark said...

Stories inspired by music, and it's going to a good cause? That's pretty much all I need to know :)

Katie Isabella said...

That is a Jubilicious anthology for certain. I hope it sells well as that is a good cause and more attention needs to be drawn to funding that help. xoxo

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

And you are one of the authors, correct?!!!!
Sorry it rained on your party.

Jemi Fraser said...

I heard that it was really wet for the celebration - that's too bad!

Off to check out the antholody :)

Adam said...

good luck with your book

klahanie said...

Hey Old Kitty!
We stayed well away from the festivities. Didn't want to steal the limelight from her Majesty...
Now then, what a good cause. You do realise that Lady Gaga has a sister named 'Radio'?
Take care and stay dry

Happy Jubilee Day! Go Queen Elizabeth!

Pasha said...

Happy Diamond Jubilee!

Charlie, you're as cute as ever :)

Madeleine Maddocks said...

Oh wow! Congrats. Hope Charlie gets some better weather to go outside soon.

Teresa Ashby said...

What a wonderful cause, Old Kitty - and great that you're in it :-) I'll shall toddle along to Amazon right now :-) x

the writing pad said...

Wow - well done Old Kitty and what a great cause! And as for Nik Kershaw ... wow again :-)
Hope you and Charlie are having better Jubilee weather today ... (The sun is shining in Wales, so it's sure to be out everywhere else, and probably more so!!) Well done again. Go Ga Ga (I did, years ago ...)

Nas said...

Hi Old Kitty,

Congrats on your short story being published. And for what a great cause. Awesome!

Creepy Query Girl said...

Yay! Hope you had a good time this weekend! They showed the jubilee on French tv but I missed it:(

Jennifer Shirk said...

I'm going to get a copy! What a great cause that it will help support.

Fuzzy Tales said...

Oh, congrats on your story! Best of luck to all involved with the fundraising for such an important charity.

BTW, I wondered about all the Jubilee celebrations, if you get holidays from work if the events extend into the work week. There was a lot of coverage on our CBC news station this weekend, of course. :-)

Hannah and Lucy said...

We felt so sorry for the people who had been on the banks of the River Thames for hours to watch the Flotilla pass by. It was cold enough (it peaked at 52F in our garden) watching it on TV but the ones who had camped out over night for a good view must have been freezing. Still only 3 weeks until the nights start drawing in again and we get ready for winter! Haha!!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Talli Roland said...

Yay! Congrats on your story, Old Kitty, and hope you and Charlie are snuggly dry and WARM! *brr*

Marg said...

That looks like a great book and what a super charity for it to benefit. Hope you have a super week too.

Ginger Jasper said...

Sounds good and for a good cause too.. We will check it out... HUgs GJ xx

Lydia Kang said...

I love that Lady Gaga song too! Congrats Kitty! going to get my copy now. :)

Lydia Kang said...

Kitty, Americans can't buy on your link because it's Amazon UK. Here's the link on Amazon.com for people in the U.S. who want to purchase it:

It's only $1.55 in US dollars!

Rene said...

Oh Charlie, you crack me up. Hugs to you both!

Clarissa Draper said...

I'll have to pick it up. It's for a great cause.

LTM said...

Very cool!!! Thanks for the heads up *running over* Ahh, Bad Romance. It just begs to be turned into a story, yes?

I've been meaning to check out the Jubilee. I love that stuff. :o) <3

Stephen Tremp said...

Cats sure do like to turn their backs when they are bored. I have yet to see a trained cat. They are like the ultimate anti-dog.

William Kendall said...

Charlie thinks he's the King.

fairyhedgehog said...

What a wonderful way to celebrate the weekend! Congratulations on having a story in the anthology!

RaShelle Workman said...

Very cool, Old Kitty. I'm going to check it out. =D

cleemckenzie said...

Oh no! It's raining on the Queen's parade. Good old England. That picture of the damp streets made me want to buy a ticket and pop over. I love your island.

Congratulations on the story. I'll take a look on amazon for it. The charity is an excellent choice.

Samantha VĂ©rant said...

I think Charlie wants to know where his crown is! Off to check the book out!

The Furries of Whisppy said...

That sounds like a very interesting book. We're so happy to hear that the proceeds will go towards helping people who have experienced sexual abuse / violence. Thank you!

Angela Felsted said...

The anthology looks great, and the charity looks more than worthwhile. I'll have to stop by here after I get paid again. :D

Betsy Brock said...

I watched a good bit of the jubilee on TV...fun!...and dry. haha.

Carol Kilgore said...

Congratulations! The Jubilee is a grand occasion :)

Travis Erwin said...

Very cool. I'll have to order this one to scope out some of your writing.

Summer Ross said...

My week will be full of stories- not so sure about the music though. Have a great day!

Theresa Milstein said...

Can you believe I bought it asap, but haven't read it on my Kindle yet? I moved this weekend, so things have been a little (a lot, actually) crazy.

Lady Gaga and Coldplay. I can't wait to check the other song inspirations + Nik Kershaw's intro.

Theresa Milstein said...

And congrats!!!!!!

Helena said...

Jubilicious indeed! And of course I'll be reading your story in the anthology and buying for the good cause.

Hope Charlie can go out in the sun soon.

Happy Jubilee - although I appreciate it's almost over now! We've been away in the States, so got back just before it all.

It's been wet here, too. Our heat was off last week and the kitchen window was open. Now the heat is back on and I'm wearing a wool sweater! People are calling it June-uary.

Norma Beishir said...

Charlie IS King!

And everyone should buy the anthology. A good read for a good cause.
