Those who have been following my blog for a while may remember my previous posts about the MND Association and the bits of fundraising I do for them on occasion. There's currently a viral trend of "no make-up" photos for Cancer Research. I don't wear make-up anyway, but at the same as it was going on the MNDA were running their own campaign, High Five for MND.
Text "MND Five" to 70004 and you'll donate £5 to the fight against Motor Neurone Disease, which is a horrible disease and when we say "high five" what we mean is "smack it in the face repeatedly until it's defeated".
To spread the word people were taking photos of their hands with the information and a slogan on and then Tweeting or Facebooking them. I did both, and I thought I should blog about it too.
Have a nice day everyone!
What's this? Two posts in two days? Can you all really be that lucky!?
This is primarily because I've had the afternoon off work and realised I need to do something more productive than lounging around my room.
A few weeks ago I announced the launch of my ebook 30 Women in History. If you haven't checked it out yet then you really should, I've had a lot of positive feedback from people, which is hopefully going to translate into feedback left on Amazon.
There are two fellow ebook authors who have been waving flags in my corner for the past few weeks, and therefore I figured I'd wave my flag for them in return.
The first one is Erin Lawless, who can be found on Twitter under @rinylou as well as on Wordpress. I went to university with Erin and therefore follow her on Facebook. After she launched two self-published ebooks (one collection of short stories, the other her debut novel) she was signed up by the publisher Harper Impulse. Her book is called The Best Thing I Never Had and is available on the Kindle and from April 2014 it will be available in paperback so you can preorder it before the Easter holiday! Plus if you buy it on Kindle and email Erin with the receipt, she'll enter you in to a lovely giveaway she's holding.
The second author is Stephanie Carroll. I didn't go to university with Stephanie, in fact I met her entirely by chance after she put out a Twitter appeal for Women's History Month (her Twitter can be found under @CarrollBooks). She has her own website where she posts up interviews, hosts giveaways and discusses her work. Stephanie's book is set in the Victorian era and is called "A White Room" and is available on the Kindle and in paperback.
So if you need more things to read over Easter, then you've now got three new Kindle books to read :D
Have a nice evening everyone!
