100 Words of Solitude are delighted to announce that we have signed an agreement with Rare Swan Press to publish a print collection of the initial project, both to help share the wonderful writing of the contributors and to raise money for global humanitarian projects.
There will be two editions available:
1. A hardback version: limited-edition, individually numbered, printed on the finest paper available and with hand-stitched bindings, head-and-tail bands and ribbon markers, and silver foiling on the spine. It will also come with full-colour dust jacket.
2. A paperback version of the same book, priced as cheaply as it can possibly be, with the sole aim of getting these words out to as many readers as possible.
We will announce the prices of each edition as soon as we can, including postage charges from The United Kingdom.
If you are interested in pre-ordering the limited hardback version, please get in touch with us using the contact form, here, or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
100 Words of Solitude has always been a not-for-profit project. In collaborating with Rare Swan Press we have been able to guarantee that this will remain the case, and we are thrilled to be working with them on the publication of the book.
All revenue, over and above costs, will be donated to UNICEF and/or UNHCR and/or similar humanitarian organisations, as the recognised, chosen charitable beneficiaries. More details will be posted here about the destination of funds raised, and where possible the precise use to which they will be put.
In practical terms, this means that we will donate all monies received after deductions have been made only for the printing and distribution (postage) costs. The Publisher, the Editors and all the authors in the book have given and continue to give their creative talents, time and expertise at no cost, and to all of them we are grateful beyond words!
The Editors will act as accountants and administrators for this aspect of the book. In line with the Institute of Fundraising’s guide to best practice, we will be “Legal, Open, Honest and Respectful”, and will provide details of the amounts raised and donated from time to time on the site. Full accounts will be prepared, shared with Rare Swan Press, and be available for inspection upon request.
