February 6th is the International Day Against Female Genital Mutilation. I will be releasing a new edition of my short story, ‘The Cruellest Cut’ as part of a compilation of short stories in order to help raise awareness of this abhorrent practise. It goes on not only in third world communities, but here in Australia, the UK, USA, Canada, you name it. I will be donating part of the royalties from sales of the book, soon to be available on Amazon.com to a worthy charity that not only addresses the problem, but doesn’t waste money paying huge salaries to CEOs. Kind of cuts out the Red Cross and any religious based group but I will find a worthy cause.
