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.
Protect the Rainforests
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!
Thank you for your support, happy reading!
