What is a chart rush?

A chart rush is when readers are invited to purchase a book on Amazon, in a nominated 24-hour period. The intent is to capitalise on the volume of sales and move the book up the Amazon best seller list. The higher up the chart it is, the more visible it becomes to other readers who may go on to purchase it.

100 STORIES FOR QUEENSLAND is aiming for a spot in Amazon’s top 100, via the chart rush route. Priced at £9.99 all proceeds from the book will be donated to The Queensland Premier's Flood Appeal, so please consider purchasing a copy on Tuesday, May 17th, 2011. The stories were penned by an international contingent of writers (including New Writers UK’s John Baird). A quarter of the stories came from Australia, a third from the UK and the rest from across the globe including the USA, Spain, France, Austria, Malaysia, Israel, Greece and Canada.
