I'm enjoying it immensely, having just finished Lauren's excellent chapter. Everyone has their own experiences with pleasant overlaps which evoke the camaraderie of fandom.

Well, I finally did it:
I made an unboxing video about Avengerworld.

My first attempt was a failure: I lifted the book too high, so that only the buttom was in reach of the camera - or even worse: nothing at all was seen.

So I had to make a new one. Which I did today.

Unfortunately, I had forgotten that I made the first one in Dutch, and my seconde attempt was in English.

I ended up with two films which were only a part of what should have been a longer video, but they were in different languages!

I finally threw out more than half of the first video, and smashed the remainder together to get a more or less feasable unboxing video in Dutch.
This is it:

The second video is in English, but it's not actually an unboxing video, because the book was already out of the box.
I could have reused the Dutch video material and change the audio strip, but that took too much time.
Therefor, no English unboxing video of Avengerworld, but a short introduction, which you find here:

Sales have slowed to a stop, sadly. A handful of sales at Amazon and a trickle at Lulu.

The important thing was to raise money for the charity and so far the charity total is 672.43, which is pretty impressive for a book of this type.

We haven't broken the 175 barrier yet in terms of sales. A little disappointing in numbers terms.

I once published a collection of Dutch science fiction, fantasy and horror writers, and we got 165 copies.

I'm in negotiation to get an additional $1,000 (AU) for the charity but I'm up against a lot of other people in the programme requesting the grant.

It is disappointing that sales have slowed down already Alan. I have just commented on your post in a Facebook group, just to remind people.

Good news regarding the Avengerworld book and its charity do-gooding!

The total amount raised to date is 693.22 and the first 600 of that has paid for a water harvesting system to be installed at Chanzige Primary School in South Tanzania, the school which benefits from sales of the book via the Champion Chanzige charity.



The book itself has travelled the world: see http://www.hiddentigerbooks.co.uk/avengers_avengerworld_charity_photos.htm

And both the hardcover and paperback editions are now reduced in price, so it would be good to see that charity total rise.

Details here: http://www.hiddentigerbooks.co.uk/avengers_avengerworld_charity.htm

The promo code LULURC should save you 25% and gain you free priority shipping.
