Overcoming Adversity - Nick Wilford

Yesterday, March 4th, was the official launch day for Nick Wilford's Overcoming Adversity anthology. It's my pleasure to continue spreading the word today :-)
Designed by D.R. Cartwright (DRC) and concept by Ella Wilson
Overcoming Adversity is a collection of seventy moving and uplifting original pieces - real life, flash fiction, and poetry - about battling against the odds and the ultimate triumph of the human spirit. The contributors include Amazon bestselling authors Alex J. Cavanaugh and Kyra Lennon, and the cream of upcoming talent.

The anthology is part of a fundraising effort to send the editor's stepson, Andrew McNaughton, to a specialist college in England. Andrew has cerebral palsy, and is a remarkable young man with a promising future. However, the free further education options offered in his own country of Scotland will not challenge him and allow him to progress. In order to access the education he deserves, Andrew will have to pay exorbitant fees, thus creating a situation of discrimination.

Help us get Andrew to college by buying a book that runs the full gamut of human emotions, ultimately leaving you inspired and glad to be alive. Whatever struggles you are going through, our sincere hope is that this book will help.

Add to Goodreads here.

Editor bio:
Nick Wilford is a writer and stay-at-home dad. Once a journalist, he now makes use of those rare times when the house is quiet to explore the realms of fiction. When not writing he can usually be found spending time with his family or cleaning something. He has four short stories published in Writer’s Muse magazine. Nick is also co-running a campaign to get a dedicated specialist college built in Scotland. Visit him at http://nickwilford.blogspot.co.uk/.

Perhaps you know of someone who could use a copy so they can enjoy great writing and encouragement from stories of overcoming adversity. Or, perhaps you could use a good dose for yourself :-)

Having purchased a copy of my own, I'm ready embark on the reading journey and enjoy the life-words shared within.
