The adverb writing challenge opened in April 2016. Adverbially Challenged Volume 1 was released in November 2016. Adverbially Challenged Volume 2 was released in March 2017. At the time of writing, we've already received over 30 submissions for Volume 3.
At the time of its release, Adverbially Challenged Volume 2 is the second writing challenge anthology released. It's the first time we've trialled a book launch strategy. This is to help generate more sales, gaining exposure for the authors featured in the book and raising more money for charity.
We're planning to use launch strategies for all future anthologies, refining them as we learn what works best. You can learn more about the launch process here.
