The Country That Shook products have been available to purchase for a month now!
Sales have been steadily coming in with great responses both from online customers and sales made in person in the UK. The books have been received very well – we have had so many kind comments about both the illustration style and the story itself.
We have sold well over 150 books so far! Added to the Kickstarter rewards, that total rises to almost 250.
And then, combined with the sales from the screen-printed T-shirt and the A2 Print the total money raised so far is over
I don’t have exact figures because there are a good few people around the country who are selling copies on my behalf everyday. Every penny is being counted and added on!
This is incredible for the first month of sales, but we still have 1000 books to be enjoyed and to raise money for people who still have very very little in Nepal, struggling with their daily lives.
Plus there is this small thing called Christmas on the horizon – do you know anyone who might appreciate it as a present?
If you have any new or different ideas about how to share the project, please do! It really is incredible how people have connected with it and support it… it’s just a case of spreading the word now!
These are just a selection of the amazing photos taken by Phil Haynes (www.philiphaynes.com) of the book, the A2 print and the screen-printed T-shirt. All available to buy in the shop here.
Hoorah!! Next milestone reached! The Country That Shook is now available to purchase WORLDWIDE!
The postage costs are quite high, as expected. BUT if you buy two it costs the same as buying one and to buy more than three it only goes up by another pound or two. The moral of the story is to buy as many as you can; after all they will make fantastic Christmas presents!
International friends, visit the store here and don’t forget that every single penny goes to Nepal. It really will make a difference.
When I say Distribution Centre I mean my parents’ house of course! Very exciting though, especially as I was able to watch it all on Skype!
Now the sorting and sending begins…
Thank you to my lovely family for all their help.

The container ship with the books on is about to pass by Malta, on it’s long journey from Shenzhen, China to Felixstowe, England. It’s getting there!
The shipment of The Country That Shook books is currently floating on this ship, somewhere near the southern tip of India.
This was it’s position a few days ago.
Exciting to be able to watch it!
They’re definitely on their way, due to arrive into Felixstowe on the 27th October 2015!
