Your Campaigner Challenge Stories - Ebook to benefit "Help Harry Help Others"

Guys, it's here! Katharina Gerlach has done an absolutely amazing job, and has published our ebook containing your awesome stories from the Challenges in my Third Writers' Platform-Building Campaign (August to October 2011). We'd like to say a huge thank you to all those who volunteered their stories for the ebook. We've ended up with 176 stories from 81 Campaigners.

The book is on sale for $2.99USD, and all proceeds will be donated to "Help Harry Help Others." Help Harry Help Others is a fund-raising organization of eleven year old Harry who recently died of his inoperable brain tumor. When his friend Robert, who had a brain tumor too, became very ill, he set up his charity. So far, he’s raised nearly half a million British Pounds that he has donated to Cancer Research UK, to help them find a cure for brain tumors. This charity and its goals resonates strongly with me, as my father suffered (and still suffers) from a brain tumor and its effects. And the charity is doing such a fantastic job helping so many in a similar position.

We'd love you to purchase a copy (but just so you know, there is no obligation to purchase it even if your story/stories are included).

Aloha Rach,

My gosh, how did you and Cat get this done so FAST... you guys are freakin' amazing!

Both of you, please ask someone to give you a hug from everyone involved in what is such a bittersweet moment.

On one hand, seeing my writing included in this eBook has me as excited as the first time I was published in '03.

On the other hand, it's so sad to hear about the young, courageous lad who recently passed away from a brain tumor.

Hopefully, everyone *will* buy at least one copy, and the money raised will fund a researcher somewhere... the one who makes a major breakthrough...

And, wouldn't that be an awesome legacy for the family of Harry Moseley.

The program you choose will usually depend on the specific eBook format file you want to convert to, and different readers can read different types of files. This means that before you try to convert from PDF to eBook format of any kind, you should determine what types of file formats your reader can utilize. You can then look for a conversion program that will allow you to import a PDF and export or convert to the appropriate file type.
