I Am A #PYB Wordy Warrior
By A S Wilkins, Oct 9 2015 07:16AM
I am a #PYB Wordy Warrior and proud to be so. Many years ago, my wife, lover, friend and mother to my two children was taken by this cruel disease in a blink of an eye. I like to think medical science has made huge advances in the detection and successful treatment of cancer since then, but we should never be complacent in our quest for a cure.
Together with 27 friends and fellow indie authors, we bring you Framed, a project I am extremely honoured to be associated with.
Framed is a book put together by Protect Your Breasts in order to raise money for Cancer Research, but rather than put the book on sale, it’s being given as a thank you gift for donations made through their Just Giving Page.
Framed is a collection of twenty eight stories, one thousand words in length, each written by one of twenty eight writers, collectively known as the #PYB Wordy Warriors.
All the tales in this anthology are inspired by this picture. Every story is different, every writer’s way with words unique, but they stand united for the cause. Fear, love, pain and freedom; you’ll find it all in this book, on a heart-breaking and uplifting journey through beautiful prose.
The team of Wordy Warriors and the team at #PYB want to say a huge thank you for all your support and we hope you enjoy this collection.
