So… I made it into a book (eek!)


Sensorially Challenged Volume 1 – cover artwork by David Fielden


Last year, a writing friend suggested submitting something for this. The plan was that once 100 stories had been received, it would be published. Well, folks, that’s exactly what happened.

The challenge was conceived by award-winning editor, writer and poet, Allen Ashley. He works as a creative writing tutor with various groups across north London. You can find out more about that here (just scroll down the page a bit).

Here’s some more information about the book:

“I’m pleased to present Sensorially Challenged Volume 1, a book crammed with sensorially overloaded tales that ooze with purple prose.

“The book contains 100 sensory stories, written by 100 authors who submitted their aromatic, delicious, velvety, pretty, and noisy tales to Allen’s Sensory Overload Writing Challenge.”

You can buy the book here and proceeds from book sales are donated to the National Literacy Trust, a fabulous charity that gives disadvantaged children the literacy skills they need to succeed.

Sounds super right? All of the authors featured would love your support with this one and all you have to do is buy a copy of the book and, if you’re feeling even more super, maybe share the love on Amazon/Goodreads with a review.

Thanks, you lovelies,

Newshound to Novelist.

        I work with adults who return to learning to improve their literacy skills and it’s amazing watching them flourish. You are helping find/fund solutions for children with literacy difficulties. You will probably never fully realise how much this support, at such a critical time, will change their lives for the better! Best wishes and continued success, Marie.
