Sweet Dreams is the anthology where all of the funds go to the family of Lyndsey Roughton.  Lyndsey is a young woman in England who has been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor.  Her dream has always been to travel around Thailand and Vietnam.  All of the proceeds of this book are going directly to her family in order to make her dream come true.  I have read most of the stories in this collection and they are excellent.  Please take a look and help give this young woman her dream vacation.

For more info on the collection check out JH Sked's blog, the author who organized all of this.  You can also check out more info on Lyndsey here.  Thank you to everyone who contributed a story and everyone who purchases a copy.  It's a wonderful thing to see so many people getting together to help a stranger in need.

    1. From what I understand the book is going through the Smashwords distribution that will land it on the shelves at Barnes and Noble at some point soon, but I'm not sure exactly when that will be. Thanks for taking an interest though!!
