Incident at Bombay: Raise 1000 books for charity. Halloween Fiction Frolic Giveaway

This post is part of FICTION FROLIC. Join me & nine other authors as we rush to raise 1,000 books for charity. YOU can also enter to win $200, signed books and swag!


This then is my first attempt at flash fiction. No, actually I lie. I tried to write flash fiction, but found I simply could not concentrate enough to do so. So I am instead going to share with you a piece, which I have never shared with any one before. The first few words I wrote that finally never made it to The Destiny of Shaitan. Inspired by my time in Hong Kong & Bombay, this is title the incident in Bombay.... The technology of thought travel was invented and lost here. A secret place—hidden away, sunk in mud, covered with cigarette butts, cigar ash and popcorn kernels—where the film of the world nevertheless continues to re-run, ad infinitum.

We are excited to share about an ambitious blog tour—Fiction Frolic for All Hallow's Read—where ten authors from several genres are working hard to raise 1,000 books in three weeks for Books for America. From October 1st to 19th, donate a new book (or books!) and earn extra bonus points in a huge giveaway that these authors are hosting.

Two winners will each receive the following PRIZES!

  • $100 Amazon G.C.
  • 5 signed books from the authors hosting the event
  • A swag bag
  • Plus—in honor of All Hallow's read, gift a signed copy of one of our books to a friend!

With a total of $200, 12 signed books (including the gifted books) and major swag, what better way is there to raise books for charity and celebrate All Hallow's Read? Each author participating is also donating signed copies of their books to Books for America, an awesome charity that is officially sponsoring their event and excited to be involved with All Hallow's Read. In 2011, Books for America donated more than $800,000 worth of books and materials to DC area schools, shelters and dozens of other educational programs and organizations.

The authors are blogging throughout the event at The Fiction Frolic Blog.

  • 10/1-5 Read about how books shaped their love for reading and writing.
  • 10/8-12 Read their scariest, funniest or craziest Halloween experiences, or learn about their favorite Halloween themed book or movie, or favorite work of "dark" literature.
  • 10/15-19 Enjoy some flash fiction, short stories and novel excerpts.
So donate, share, and look for daily ways to enter to win. Donate to charity for bonus points!.
