Updated since the launch party!
Last post I shared with you how ten authors of Christian Writers of Southern Africa, (CWOSA), took up my challenge to create a boxed set of 13 devotional books. Here’s some news about our amazing launch!
I now have very exciting news to share! ‘In All Things – 13 devotions from Africa’ reached #1 on Amazon in the New Releases: Spiritual Devotions category. What an exciting moment to see our boxed set boasting its little orange ribbon.
We know it won’t stay there, but just getting there at all is very exciting!
In All Things – 13 Weeks of Devotions from Africa
13 short books for the princely sum of $0.99!!! Amazing value.

And now for more exciting news!
On 24th October, we hosted a Virtual LAUNCH PARTY on FaceBook.
To cater for our friends in the Far East and Australia and New Zealand, the posts and competitions remained open for 24 hours. So although they were not able to join in the real-time fun, they could still read the posts and enter for the prizes.
What happened at the launch party?
- Every 10 minutes, for four hours, one of our authors posted something fresh.
- Every 40 minutes a different team of authors took over as hostesses.
- They shared information about their books
- offered prizes
- posed a question or set a puzzle – clues all showed on their covers (which were on show)
- offered virtual snacks and drinks
- and shared some recipes for scrumptious African treats.
In addition to smaller prizes being offered throughout the party, we had one amazing prize for one lucky guest who attended and participated for the full four hours. Here’s the prize she won!
Do you think she thought it worth spending four hours having fun with us? You bet she did!
And the cherry on the top?
The next day we discovered we had been awarded a second orange ribbon on Amazon! This time for being #1 in the New Releases section in the same genre (Spiritual).
Over to you:
[stextbox id=’info’]Did you attend? If so, did you enjoy it?
Did you miss it? On a scale of 1 (wouldn’t have enjoyed it one bit) to 10 (would have been one who stayed the whole time) where would you mark yourself? Please respond in the comment section.[/stextbox]
Looking forward to reading the books.
Hope the launch went well.
It went fabulously thank you! That’s 3 entries for you. 🙂
Got my pre-order as soon as it came out. I’ll probably read the devotions according to my daily need and/or HS’s direction. I RSVPed for the party….yippee!
Great! Thanks Dianne. Look forward to seeing you at the party.
Congratulations on this initiative. This is very exciting. Can’t wait.
Thanks for the visit, Vida. It’s been an amazing time.
This is certainly the most exciting event of this year!
I love that you have enjoyed it so much!
Do you plan on reading through in order?
The launch party sounds great! And yes, will probably read them in order. ?
Thanks for visiting, Terry! Enjoy the books!
Well, I love a good party, so I’m definitely going to be there. And as for reading in order – well, I’ll try, but I just might skip around a little too!!
Look forward to hearing if you’ve enjoyed the party as well as the books!
So very exciting! I have diarised the event and am looking forward to seeing my box set on my kindle. God bless you all and this amazing endeavor!
Thank you so much for your enthusiasm, Jen. Look forward to seeing you there.
Can’t wait to host this launch party! And I’ll definitely be starting at the beginning of the set and working my way through when I get my copy.
Thanks for calling by, Marion. Not much longer to wait! The party’s taking shape nicely too.
