Tomorrow is the day… the long awaited day to purchase the paperback! We’re releasing Nothing But Flowers in conjunction with 100 Stories for Queensland as an Amazon Chart Rush.
What’s a Chart Rush?
Readers are invited to purchase a book on Amazon, in a nominated 24-hour period, 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 (we’re aiming for a spot in the top 100) the more visible it becomes to other readers who may go on to purchase it. It’s all about exposure and helping new readers find our books.
Tuesday eMergent Publishing (the parent publishing compay of Literary Mix Tapes) will release 100 Stories for Queensland and Nothing But Flowers via an Amazon Chart Rush. We’re inviting readers to purchase one or both books on that day with the aim of getting them into the top 100 selling books for the day (and beyond!)
By releasing both charity anthologies concurrently we’re hoping people will add one extra book to their cart on the day, whether that be someone stumbling onto 100 Stories… or Nothing But Flowers for the first time.
If you can’t buy on the day, you can add it to your wishlist. Every little bit counts to rocket the books up the chart.
You can find both books on Amazon, Amazon UK and Amazon Canada.
Nothing But Flowers retails at US$17.99 or ₤5.99 (US links)
100 Stories for Queensland retails at US$19.99 or ₤9.99 (US Links)
What’s 100 Stories for Queensland
Literary Mix Tapes’ founder Jodi Cleghorn headed up the team of volunteers at 100 Stories and was working on the two projects concurrently through January, February and March. Many of the names you see published in LMT anthologies were involved behind the scenes including Trevor Belshaw – who started it all off with a simple status update, Jen Brubacher, Annie Evett, Chia Evers, Rebecca Emin, Rebecca Dobbie, Susan May James, P.J Kaiser, Dan Powell, Tanya Bell and Jason Coggins read and voted; Stacey Larner and Paul Servini were on the editing team, and authors, such as Sam Adamson, Jo Hart, Devin Watson, Josh Donellan, Monica Marier and Cath Barton, who had stories which made the final cut.
100 Stories for Queensland is a charity anthology of flash fiction from authors across the globe. Proceeds donated to The Queensland Premier’s Flood Appeal.
From the back cover:
“One hundred beautiful stories. Our stories. When so much was lost or destroyed, this was created. That’s something that can never recede or wash away.”
Kate Eltham – CEO of The Queensland Writers Centre
100 STORIES FOR QUEENSLAND has something for everyone, from slice of life to science fiction, fantasy to romance, paranormal to literary fiction. Heart-warming, quirky, inspiring and funny, the stories between these covers will lift readers to higher ground.
Please consider adding both to your shopping cart tomorrow… and as always, share with a friend or two. All money from both anthologies is donated to charity (sales of Nothing But Flowers donated to the Grantham Flood Support Fund).
