New Sun Rising Paperback Launch

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

We are encouraging 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?

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.

New Sun Rising On Amazon - as a BOOK!!

The last comma has been checked.
Page numbers have been inserted.
Arguments Discussions on spacing have been finalised.
Our ever supportive and enthusiastic contributors are nearly sick of  excited about reading proofs. Feedback has been acted upon. Everything is looking polished.

The button has been pressed.

All our hard work - and your faith has lead us to this moment. New Sun Rising will soon be available on Amazon as a printed book.

Within a few days,  I will post a short blurb with links to where you can purchase the book. At that time, I would encourage you to share the link and ask friends, neighbours and fans to buy the book - or to spread the word.

100% of profits are sent to the Red Cross in Japan. (Amazon's percentage is the only money from the sales which do not get donated)

There is still so much suffering in Japan. Every cent - and we mean every cent - goes to assist the many projects happening to rebuild Japan. We have been blessed to have been surrounded by so many selfless volunteers - editors, artists, writers, poets, publisher - all who have freely given their expertise and time to ensure the project goes ahead and all money raised is directed to the Red Cross.

The anthology is amazing. The talent showcased is breathtaking. Give yourselves a pat on the back. Its been a long journey - but we have made it.
