Book sales reach 400 copies
Last month I saw my book sales reach 400! I was amazed, and even more so by that fact that it continues to sell around the world.
When I wrote Campaigning for Change: an Essential Guide for Campaigning around the World, I realised that it would appeal to a small, niche audience. So I am delighted now to see so many book sales.
Shortly after publishing it, there was an order from Australia. And last month there were copies sent out to Germany.
I love how it has been used by Helvetas as part of their global support to advocacy training. And nearer to home by Places of Sanctuary Ireland and City of Sanctuary UK for their Sanctuary in Politics courses.
My favourite story came from a woman in Central Asia. She was doing some influencing work and kept getting stuck. And when she did get stuck, she said that she would turn to ‘that little green book.’
Just that story alone is enough to convince me that it was worth writing this book!
