The seed that grew and finally matured into this book was sown when I joined Goodreads. Somehow I was persuaded to co-found the Review Group for indie/SP authors and gathered a rather amazing group of members. I suggested a group anthology for charity, an idea that was taken up with great enthusiasm, and Of Words and Water is the result. I have contacts through the Environment Agency here in the UK with WaterAid so we agreed quite easily on which charity we’d like to support.
