Going cyberpunk for charity

Cyberpunk Storybundle

Available only until 1st October, my novel The Accord is featured in a bundle of thirteen cyberpunk novels, curated by bestselling author Steven Savile and featuring such notable award-winning and bestselling authors as Melissa Scott, Kevin J Anderson, Billy Dee Williams (Lando!), Frank Herbert and David Bischoff.

The deal is simple: pick a price you’re willing to pay, pay it, and get a bunch of great books. Minimum price is $3, for which you get six novels, by Kevin J Anderson, Melissa Scott and Jo Graham, David Bischoff, Billy Dee Williams and Rob MacGregor, Keith Brooke, and David Farland. Pay a minimum of $15 and you get the complete set of thirteen novels.

Not bad, eh?

But to make it even better, you can opt for a proportion of what you pay to go to charity. Our chosen charities are Girls Write Now and Mighty Writers, and we’re hoping to raise them great big bucket-loads of cash.

The Cyberpunk Storybundle is available from http://storybundle.com/cyberpunk for the period 10th September 2014 to 1st October 2014, inclusive. All books are available in a variety of DRM-free formats.

Our charities

Girls Write Now

Girls Write Now helps mentor girls so they can develop writing skills, leading to a more successful future no matter what path they decide to choose.

Distinguished as one of the top 15 after-school arts and culture programs in the nation by The President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities, Girls Write Now is New York’s first and only organization with a writing and mentoring model exclusively for girls. From young women exploring writing to seasoned professionals practicing their craft every day, GWN is a community of women writers dedicated to providing guidance, support, and opportunities for high school girls to develop their creative, independent voices and write their way to a better future.

Over the past 15 years, more than 4,500 underserved teen girls have benefitted from the GWN community and 100% of seniors in our flagship mentoring program go on to college—bringing with them portfolios, awards, scholarships, new skills, and a sense of confidence. Girls Write Now has built a record of achievement and innovation recognized twice by the White House, by The New York Times, and the MacArthur Foundation, and evidenced by the hundreds of Scholastic Art & Writing awards our girls have earned.

Mighty Writers

As avid readers, we’re always on the lookout for new authors and new titles. So what better way to make sure there will always be new authors than to help train the next generation of aspiring kids. Not only will they gain appreciation for the writing process itself, but the confidence this gives them will allow them to succeed in other areas of learning.

Mighty Writers’ mission is to teach Philadelphia kids to think and write with clarity. Our free programs combat the literacy crisis in a city where nearly half of high school students drop out and some 50% of working-age adults are functionally illiterate (can’t read bank statements, fill out job applications or easily comprehend news articles).

Today, Mighty Writers offers year-round writing programs for some 1,000 kids and teens, ages seven to 17, with help from 300 volunteers. At our headquarters in one of Philadelphia’s historic neighborhoods, we offer an after-school writing academy, themed writing workshops, one-on-one mentorships, a weekly teen lounge, SAT preparatory courses and college essay writing classes. Our programs draw students from more than 125 city schools (public, parochial, magnet, charter, cyber, home) and an array of communities.
