Twist of Fate
In May of 2013, tornadoes ripped through Oklahoma, most notably causing severe destruction in the city of Moore. Safety was stolen, dreams were destroyed, lives were lost. Almost immediately, authors and artists from around the world joined together so that their expressions of emotion could be put to good use. The dozens of authors and artists who contributed to this anthology represent caring people whose effort has combined to create the charity anthology “Twist Of Fate.” Representing the Indies In Action group, 60 authors have combined to contribute 78 different writings in a charity anthology to help tornado victims in Oklahoma. The authors represent people from all around the globe. Nine countries are represented, and several of the contributors actually live in or have lived in “Tornado Alley.” It is a grassroots, group effort to help those who need it the most. The writing and photos mix to create an experience you will want to share. This inspiring collection is a wonderful way to make a difference for those who truly need it the most. The proceeds from this book go to the May Tornadoes Relief Fund, managed by the United Way, which in turn is used to help the victims of this tragic display of nature’s fury. Thank you for sharing hope.
