Cranking it up: The Children No More press release is going out

After way more time than we had planned, a delay due largely to my day job workload, we drafted the press release, everyone involved agreed on a final version, and Baen (and some of our volunteer team) are now distributing it.

Here's an image of the release. Click on it to see a larger, readable image.

The updated Children No More Web site will be live within a day or so.

We're rolling on this project now. We have only a few weeks of shelf life to sell enough copies to convince booksellers to keep the book on display. The more we sell, the more money goes to Falling Whistles.

If you want to get involved and promote the book so we can help those kids, now's the time do it. Let's get busy!

Mark, could you send me a copy of the release and links to any sites (when they're ready)? I'd love to start promoting this on my site, Facebook, and Twitter next week.

WOW! I just went to the Children No More website, where I experienced both excitement and incredible sadness. You are right, 300,000 child soldiers is unacceptable. Thank you for bringing this out in the open. I had no idea. I hope your efforts go beyond your expectations. This is just deplorable; shame on anyone who contributes to this problem. And, my heart goes out to that little boy who suffered so many years ago. He turned out to be a good man.

Thanks for the kind words and the support. Here's hoping we can sell a lot of books and raise a lot of money for this cause--as well as a lot of awareness.

In your email. Thanks for the support, Lisa. I really appreciate it.
