*EDIT: Kindle version (US) now available! :)

It's the official release day today! It's been a whirlwind of a time, with edits and promos and blog tours, and the day is finally here! :) And here is our latest status:

The print version of Stories for Sendai has been available on Amazon for a few days now. We've encountered some glitches with the Kindle version, which somehow keeps failing at the review stage without giving us a reason why! :( So please be patient while we keep plugging on that...

See the new-fangled thermometer on the right? Help us raise the mercury all the way to the top! For every sale of the print version, $2.24 will go towards funds in aid of Japan's quake victims. This is 100% of the proceeds, minus the cuts taken by Amazon and Createspace.

As of today, Stories for Sendai is #20 in the Hot New Releases bestsellers list for Genre Fiction Anthologies!! Overall in books, we're a less impressive #58,164. Let's try to get Stories for Sendai to climb higher! If you're planning on getting a copy, why not buy it TODAY to help us rush the charts and move us up the lists?

And don't forget to email us a copy of your receipt to be in the running for awesome prizes! Check out the COMPETITIONS page--one entry per receipt!

There's been quite a bit of Twittering about the anthology in the past few days, and we're really grateful to everyone who's been re-Tweeting and promoting Stories for Sendai to their followers. Now comes the big question: could we get #StoriesforSendai to actually trend? *gasp* With your help, we'll find out!

I'd like to thank everyone for their support so far. We're halfway through our blog tour, so I hope you'll continue to join us the rest of the way! With your help, we can make this project a success!


  1. Well, I've been tried to trend the hash tag, but if I do much more alone, I'm going to look like a spam bot. lol

  2. I have tweeted about it from time to time as well...and I hope more people join in. I bought a few copies, but they'll only be delivered in August!

  3. I wish you the best of luck with this! I truly hope it's a massive success. I will Tweet this for you and point it out to all my friends.


Comments? Suggestion? We would love to hear from you!
