View Full Version : An American Story

04-11-2013, 08:02 PM
I've been posting occasionally via facebook & twitter this book trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9FbL4mM2vpk for Breath: An American Story, (you can currently learn *more* about the project at www.stevebargdill.com/americanstory.htm (http://www.stevebargdill.com/americanstory.htm)). Anyway, I was thinking last night that I should involve other people....

So what I'm asking is for a nonpublished short story or novella written by you that you think epitomizes in some way the United States. And here's the catch: you need to offer the story for free. I'm asking readers that if they like the story to donate to the National Network to End Domestic Violence or Foster Care to Success.

You can "piggy-back" on these two organizations, or you can select two of your own charities. Preferably, they should be charities that match your story's theme. If you need a "home" for the story, I am willing to post it on americanstory.info for no cost (site not up yet) or at least offer a link.

What do you think, and is anyone on board with this?
