FIGHT CARD UPDATE!

FIGHT CARD UPDATE!

The Fight Card team is excited to announce the release of our first ever Fight Card CHARITY anthology. Part of the Fight Card mandate as an author’s cooperative is to give back to our community.  This debut project, Fight Card Presents: Iron Head & Other Stories – Ten Rounds of Fight Fiction for Charity, is the first step.  Three other charity anthologies will follow during the course of 2014.  If you would like to provide a story, please contact either myself or Jeremy L. C. Jones.

One hundred percent of all royalties from these anthologies will go directly to an author-in-need or a literacy charity.  Royalties from our debut charity anthology will go directly to ailing western writer JORY SHERMAN, whose family has been financially devastated by medical bills related to Jory’s illness. Jory is a revered writer known primarily for his award winning westerns, but has also written in many other genres.  He has also been a mentor and good friend to many other writers.  

Fight Card Presents: Iron Head & Other Stories is a 60,000 word anthology of two-fisted action by authors from multiple genres, There's Jack Badelaire, James Scott Bell, Mark Finn, Ed Greenwood, James Hopwood, Bowie V. Ibarra, Ryan McFadden, Troy Smith, Matthew Pizzolato, and Jory Sherman writing the title story. There's also a foreword by Paul Bishop, an introduction by Jeremy L.C. Jones, and a cover by Carl Yonder. 

It is particularly important to help us spread the word about this anthology via blogs and social networks.  Please help us make a difference two dollars and one punch at a time!

FIGHT CARD PRESENTS: IRON HEAD & OTHER STORIES

Fight Card Presents: Iron Head & Other Stories is the first in a series of charity anthologies from the Fight Card authors cooperative – a writers community featuring many of today’s finest fictioneers, including Jory Sherman, Ryan McFadden, Mark Finn, Troy D. Smith, Ed Greenwood,  Jack Badelaire, James Scott Bell, James Hopwood, Bowie V. Ibarra, and Matthew Pizzolato. 

Compiled by Paul Bishop and Jeremy L. C. Jones, 100% of the proceeds from these anthologies will go directly to an author-in-need (in this case, revered western writer Jory Sherman) or a literacy charity. Words on paper are the life blood of a writer.  The writers in this volume were willing to bleed in order to give a transfusion to one of their own – and then continue to bleed to give a transfusion to literacy charities in support of that most precious of commodities ... readers.  They are true fighters, every one ...

Much more coming from Fight Card in 2014 ... So, hang on and ...

Keep punching!
