As this is a charity anthology, we donate every penny of profit to Oceana to help them fund ocean conservation projects. This means we don’t have much money to spend on marketing and advertising the book, so winning this prize would mean the world to us. It would mean we can reach more readers and raise even more money for charity.
Thank you for all your incredible support, and all of the love for this book! We can’t express our gratitude to each and every one of you who has voted, bought the book, left a review, shared it with friends, emailed us or commented on our social media to say how much you loved our stories.
If your cover is also in the competition, let us know and we’ll return the favour and vote for you too!
Thank you for all of your support with Enchanted Waters so far, we managed to raise almost $400 for Oceana during release week alone, and we’d love to make it an even $500 this month. It’s been the most amazing experience working with this team of incredible authors, and I’m so excited to repeat it next year with our second charity anthology, Enchanted Forests.
There are four rounds in the contest, so I’ll remind you each week to cast your vote again, and hopefully at the end of the month I’ll be announcing that we won!
The big day has finally arrived, Enchanted Waters is out now, winging its way to kindles all over the world. Beautifully illustrated paperbacks are dropping onto doormats from Canada to Estonia, and everywhere in between and beyond.
This release has surpassed by far any of our wildest dreams, and we have you to thank for that. To everyone who preordered the ebook or bought the paperback, who liked and shared our social media posts, who included EW in their newsletters and reviewed it on your blogs, who told friends and family, or even just bought it to help support Oceana and the charitable initiative.
Thank you, from the bottoms of our hearts and the depths of our souls. You’ve made this release a huge success, and helped us raise hundreds of pounds (or dollars, euros, whatever!) for ocean conservation.
I’ve had the most incredible experience working alongside these amazing writers and humans for the past year, it’s made my debut year as an indie author everything I hoped it would be and so much more. So my thanks also go to Alice Ivinya, Astrid V.J., Jennifer Kropf, N.D.T. Casale, Elena Shelest, Sky Sommers and Ben Lang. Thank you for being the best coauthors a girl could ask for.
If you haven’t decided whether Enchanted Waters is your cup of tea yet, here’s the blurb and the stories included:
