New Sun Rising – stories for Japan – available in Paperback now.

Filed under: published works — Annie Evett @ 11:14 pm

Please join us in our virtual party to launch New Sun Rising.

 As you may have noticed on the twitter-spere, New Sun Rising, the charitable Anthology set up to benifit the victims of the japanese Tsunami is about to launch. Its been quite a journey to get this far, and I hope you will offer your encouragement during the weekend.

I would love supporters to purchase the book in a concentrated time frame with the intent to capitalise on the volume of sales to move the book up the Amazon best seller list. The higher up the chart it is, the more visible it becomes to other readers who may go on to purchase it.

It’s all about exposure and the more people who come across New Sun Rising, the more books we sell and the more money we raise.

Our 24 hour time frame is this Saturday – 24th of November – from one min past midnight – through to 11.59 pm

Even if you can’t purchase the book on the day, there is plenty you can do to support us.

So – what can YOU do?

Buy the book on Saturday

Encourage your friends/ relatives/ greengrocer to buy it on Saturday

If  you can’t buy on the day, you can add it to your wishlist.

If your friends can’t buy it – get them to add it to a wishlist

‘Like’ the book ( there is a little thumbs up on the site = press that!)

Get everyone you know to log on and ‘like’ the book

give the book a rating out of 5 on Amazon

Please write a review on your blog.

get a friend to write a review on Amazon

Pop over to the facebook page and write a little “yay” or encouraging message on Saturday ( or anytime!)

Every little bit counts – if we all do a little – it will make a HUGE difference to the visibility of the book


The book retails online for $10.05 at Amazon and the same at CreateSpace. Its listed on Amazon UK and US .

If you are going to buy a book on Saturday – do it through Amazon as the numbers are counted there for the charts!

How much goes to Fundraising?

Every single cent will be directed to the Red Cross in Japan. Amazon pay quarterly – so as soon as they take their percentage, every .. single… cent goes to the charity. Not a penny goes to the publisher, editors or contributors. They have generously donated their talent and time into this project.

So please – go forth and publicise

Please feel free to copy the graphic for your website, Facebook or twitter and spread the word far and wide. You may like to change your their facebook pictures to the book cover … consider doing as a supporter just for 24 hours! Email me and I’ll send you a small file of the book cover.
