Spotlight Time!

This is something I've always wanted to do here at Randomities. It's spotlight time! 

One of the most important things in a writer's career is to have people talking about their books and stories. (and buying them, of course :P) So I'm dedicating a "spotlight series" to the projects of my writing pals. 

Today, Randomities will be featuring Jodi Cleghorn, who organized not one but two anthologies in the past few months. (wow) 

Both books are being released in paperback through Amazon Chart Rush tomorrow (May 17th), and revenues from both books go to charities to help with the Queensland community in Australia, which suffered greatly with the Yasi Cyclone last February

These are beautiful projects that gather a great many writers in them. Check them out and help them climb Amazon's ratings!

Inspired by the Talking Heads’ song of the same name, Nothing but Flowers explores the complexities and challenges of love in a post-apocalyptic landscape; from a take-away coffee mug to a gun to the head, a fortune cookie to a guitar, the open road and beyond.
Poignant, funny, horrifying and sensual, this collection of short fiction leaves an indelible mark on ideas of what it means to love and be loved.
All profits from the sale of this anthology go to The Grantham Flood Support Fund.

“One hundred beautiful stories. Our stories. 
When so much was lost or destroyed, this was created. 
That’s something that can never recede or wash away.” 
~ Kate Eltham – CEO of The Queensland Writers Centre 

100 STORIES FOR QUEENSLAND has something for everyone, from slice of life to science fiction, fantasy to romance, paranormal to literary fiction. Heart-warming, quirky, inspiring and funny, the stories between these covers will lift readers to higher ground. 

Proceeds from the sale of the anthology go to the Queensland 
Premier’s Flood Appeal.


  1. These sound like terrific books for an important cause. I hope they sell out!

  2. Great thing you're doing here Mari! I feel awful. I missed the day yesterday! So wonderful to hear of all the people that came together for the cause. I hope they sold a million. Hope you are well. <3

  3. --Jemi: I love what you do on your blog, and you kind of inspired me to start spotlight time. I'm thrilled, and I hope there will be a second print soon! (assuming they have sold out as we hope ;)

    --Jodi: Don't feel bad, darling. I've been away too, and have been missing lots of stuff that are happening around the net. Life has a way of getting in the way, doesn't it? ;P
