I often post book reviews on a Tuesday, but there’s something a bit different this Tuesday. This post is an unashamed plug for When Stars Will Shine, an anthology of short stories which, as it happens, doesn’t feature anything by me.

When Stars Will Shine is a collection with a Christmas theme. It sold well at Christmas and Emma Mitchell, who put the whole thing together, is hoping to get a few more sales in January.

Why am I mentioning this? Because all the stories have a military theme and all the profits from sales of both e-book and paperback are going to Help for Heroes. The government is sometimes quick to put our armed forces in harm’s way but not always as quick to offer help and support to those who come back broken. That is often left to organisations like Help for Heroes.

My son serves in the British Army and I know that he and his comrades appreciate Help for Heroes (and raise a lot of money for it themselves). We ask a lot of our armed forces and this is our chance to give a bit back and get to read some excellent stories as well.

When Stars Will Shine is a collection of short stories from your favourite authors who have come together to deliver you a Christmas read with a twist.

With true war tales that will break your heart, gritty Christmas crimes that will shake you to your core, and heart-warming tales of love lost and found, this anthology has something for everyone. And, with every penny made being sent to support our troops, you can rest assured that you’re helping our heroes, one page at a time.From authors such as Louise Jensen, Graham Smith, Malcolm Hollingdrake, Lucy Cameron, Val Portelli, and Alex Kane, you are in for one heck of a ride!
