Just a nice short post this morning to say that Wild n Free Forever, the new collection of wild animals stories by children aged 9 to 16 with proceeds to Born Free is now out! These are the winners and runners-up in the Paws Animal Writing Competition and is a lovely book, even if I say it myself!
Usually when I send the email to the children’s parents I get a deluge of order forms returned and so far there’s been one! Slightly disconcerting but I am guessing people might be waiting for pay-day! I have already paid out a lot with designer fees and booking the venue for the launch etc. so I hope to get some of that back. I never get it all, I always make a loss, but sometimes it’s about doing it for the right reason and I thrilled to be involved with this project!
I don’t encourage the contributors to use Amazon if possible as they take a chunk of profit and don’t give me anything for 3 months! I can make something back and give a fair bit more to Born Free doing it direct. So I hope those orders come in soon! Sure they will.
But if you are not a contributor you can order from Amazon and although it says not available for a few weeks, I ordered one with Amazon Prime to test it and it is available, so you will get it for Christmas!
The poetry collection is not released until after the winners’ announcement — December 15th and I urge everyone to order that from the Born Free Shop to ensure all profits go to the animals! I will send links when I blog about the special award ceremony in London on December 13th!
So take a look at this:
That’s it folks! Add it to your Christmas lists!!!
