Happy Birthday ‘The Wait’!!!

It’s one year ago today that submissions for The Wait were opened!

A lot has happened since then – we’ve chosen, published, and sold the poems that we collected and raised a lovely chunk of money for Cancer Research.

Our charity poetry anthology is still on sale and all proceeds are still going to CRUK, so if you or anyone you know hasn’t grabbed a copy yet then please check it out.

And happy birthday to us!


Nearly In Triple Digits!

We’ve not been in touch much recently – we’ve been horribly distracted with jobs, education, multiple musical side-projects (yes, really) and we haven’t had much of a chance to give you updates.

However, we’re proud to announce that with just a few more copies sold, we’ll officially have sold 100 copies of the Wait Poetry anthology.

That is AWESOME, but we know we can do better.

Please grab a copy if you haven’t already, and share the link to where the Wait is available as widely as you can! Thank you!

Enjoying ‘The Wait’? Think it’s a Good Cause? Then Will You Help Us Sell More?

We hope that by now a fair few of you have received the copies of The Wait that you ordered – if you haven’t had a chance yet, you can grab one here.

We need your help still to spread the word-please share and reshare our links, tell your friends, buy them as gifts! We can’t do this without you.

If you like what you’ve read so far, then we’d also really appreciate you leaving a review on the Lulu site where you purchased your poetry collection. The reviews are really important as they’ll help us get seen, so please spare a minute, create an account if you don’t have one (they only ask for three pieces of information-it takes a minute, honest!)

Please keep sharing, and we’ll try get you a sales update soon!

‘The Wait’ Profits Top £200!

We thought all our contributors would like a quick update:

At the last count, we’d sold nearly 70 copies and topped 200 smackers in profit – and it’s all going to Cancer Research UK. This info is slightly out of date…it could be more by now, who knows!

It’s been out for less than a week, so we’re bloody thrilled so far! There are a few ways you could help us out:

  • Buy The Book!!!!
  • Leave a review on the Lulu site to raise the books profile
  • Share links on your social media for us – it’s a boring marketing thing, but ‘social signals’ help push links to the top of search engines and social networking feeds, so we really need your help to keep the momentum going and keep people talking about us!

Got Yours Yet? What Do You Think?

Reports have been coming in that the people who jumped online to grab a copy of The Wait on the first day or two of release have been receiving their copies! image

Have you get yours? What do you think? Chuck us a Tweet or message us on Facebook, WordPress or however else you found us – and if you don’t have a copy yet then you can grab one here!

And if you’re enjoying it, then please share our links in your social media. We’ve said it 100 times but it really is vital that you help us out – we don’t have an advertising budget, so all our publicity is generated by people like you helping us out.

Every penny of profit is going to cancer research… Even if you’re not into poetry but you think this is a great idea, please share a link and maybe someone you know will grab a copy.

Thanks again for everything you’ve all done for this project – without you all, it would be nothing.

*Drumroll* ‘The Wait’ Is Finally On Sale!

After the promises to ‘keep you updated’ and that ‘we’re working on it’ suddenly, without much warning or fanfare, the book is published and ready for purchase.

We're even happier than this puppy. And he is SUPER happy.

Currently, the hard-copy is the only available version, but an e-book is on its way soon.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed, shared our links, or given support, and please share and re-blog our link so we can raise as much money for Cancer Research as we can!!
