June 5 is World Environment Day, and I’m here to tell you how you can help us save the world, one book at a time.
TL;DR Buy charity anthologies and get some fantastic short stories in exchange for a donation to an environmental charity.
Protect the Oceans
Enchanted Waters is a collection of ten short fantasy stories featuring water magic and piscine mythical creatures, from kelpies, ashrays and mermaids to selkies, naiads and even snow pirates. All profits from the sale of Enchanted Waters go to Oceana to support their mission of cleaning up the world’s oceans, promoting sustainable fishing and protecting sealife and coastal communities. Since release, we have raised over $600 for Oceana and hope to continue donating as much as possible to this worthy cause.
Enchanted Forests features ten brand-new fantasy stories by the bestselling, award-winning and up-and-coming authors behind Enchanted Waters. Featuring magical woodlands, mystical forests and a whole host of fantastic beasts, these stories can all be read as standalone, although some may feature characters you’ll know from Enchanted Waters or the authors other works. All profits from the sale of Enchanted Forests will go to the Rainforest Foundation, furthering their work to protect the rainforests, support indigenous communities who rely on the forests for resources and income, and reducing deforestation.
Our third anthology, coming June 2023, will be titled Enchanted Flames, and all profits will go to a charity working to help communities prone to wildfires. Keep an eye out as preorders will open very soon!
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!
