The Anthropocene Hymnal is published!

The waiting is over! You can now purchase The Anthropocene Hymnal in Paperback and Kindle format from Amazon (just select your relevant region).

The Anthropocene Hymnal

I also have a PDF version of the book available. I am not selling the PDF, but asking for a donation to my WWF Fundraiser. Once you have made your donation (minimum €3 or equivalent in your currency) please email confirmation to and I will send you the PDF by return email. I will aim to respond to your email and send you the PDF within 24 hours of receiving it. I will also be making regular personal donations of my Amazon royalties as and when I receive them. Please follow my fundraiser page for updates!

Today also marks two years of sobriety for me. I had a quick look back over my Lessons Learned in One Year Sober post, and I honestly wouldn’t change a thing I’d written there. I would only add that after an additional year, I’ve had a whole lot more ‘life on life’s terms’ thrown at me, and I’ve become all the stronger because of it. Best of all, I have managed to publish my first book!

Thank you so much to everyone who has contributed to the anthology, or supported this project in any way. It means so much to me to be doing something to raise funds and raise awareness as we plunge headlong into an unprecedented era. I am sharing this news with earthweal’s Open Link Weekend, as earthweal and its contibutors played a fundamental role in the anthology’s creation.

Finally, one small request: if you have read and enjoyed the anthology, I would be very grateful if you could leave a review, either on Amazon, your blog, or both! This will help sell more copies, therefore raising more money and awareness.

One thousand thank yous,

  2. Yeah .. and congratulations again It was a mammoth undertaking for you Ingid I bet your feeling a bit tired, but also breathing a hugh sigh of relief … I have literally collapsed in a heap, since I found out Tullawalla was in print again … I’ve been living on nervous energy and ardrenaline flow for months now … the last 3 days I’ve slept for 12 hrs each night ….
    Well done … and as i leave here I shall purchase my paperback copy … πŸ“–πŸ“˜πŸ˜€πŸ˜πŸŒ

    1. I know exactly what you mean, Ivor: it’s like having an unruly child πŸ˜‚ so pleased Tullawalla is back out there and you are able to sleep again πŸ™πŸ˜ŠπŸ€©πŸ₯³

      1. And you can relax now too … we can sit for a little while, although I’m really working hard at publicising Tullawalla on every avenue available to me … but it’s an enjoyable task compared to those previous anxieties … πŸŒπŸ’›πŸ’š

  3. OhIngrid that is WONDERFUL news. Congratulations and well done. I know that this book is going to make a differencefor yourcause.i hope also that you can relax a bit now and enjoy your fun day out. You deserve it. Just wonderful news and what an achievement. πŸ’ž

  4. The twin peaks achieved today – the publication and the sobriety – whether they have come together by wonderful chance or conscious effort, are summits to be very proud of. Top of the world, Ingrid. Inspirational. x

  5. Congrats Ingrid! Now its time for your work to go out into the world and serve as a little lamp in this strange and ferocious Anthropocene dark. Congrats on the sober anniversary. So much life can begin when the abuse ends. – Brendan

  6. Congratulations, Ingrid! This book is such a wonderful achievement (as is your two-year sobriety), and I can’t wait to read it. I hope it is a huge success!

  7. Ingrid, your passion and hard work made this happen. I admire you greatly as you have a sense of urgency about saving our planet and that’s what it takes. I’m hoping the messages in the poetry in the book help spark that urgency in others.

    You mentioned before having a banner that can be used on our blogs? Will you please send me the file?

  8. Many congrats to you. I am so happy this book is out into the world, lighting its little lamp. And congrats also on the sobriety. Way to go!

      1. Thanks but I already checked. For some reason the business plan does not allow reblogs πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

  9. I am positively impacted by this and look forward to holding a paperback copy! It is a book to sit proudly on my bookshelf. I have loved reading the work of the writers within the Hymnal and expanding the circles of the writing community.
    Thank you for curating and putting as much of your love into the publication process as the writers put into their every word!

  10. Many life celebrations, Ingrid. πŸ’ You have worked so hard and are an inspiration to others.

I am looking forward to diving into your project and of course I will write a review when I am done. 😊 Best wishes on a continued successful book launch!

  11. Congratulations! I’ve just bought a copy, and look forward to reading it. I’ve also set up a ‘genius link’ for your book, which automagically redirects to the appropriate national site: πŸ™‚

    Can I offer you a submission of my own work for Volume Two? It’s a haiku entitled ‘Sacrilege‘:

    Gaia, swirling heaven.
    Mankind blossoms, then explodes;
    the end: just deserts?

  12. Hi Ingrid! I put a link, with image of the book cover, on my Image & Verse site so people can buy your book directly from Amazon. Good luck with salesβ€¦πŸ‘
    Wish I had known about the book, it would have been an honor to submit one of my poems for considerationβ€¦βœŒπŸΌ

  14. Ingrid, I am making my way through your collection. I will write a review when I am done, I just want to say how wonderful it looks. Outstanding work Editor Ingrid!

  15. What a worthy achievement, Ingrid. Every bit of creativity aimed at raising awareness to our planet to ultimately save it from greed and more is a worthy cause. Thanks for this opportunity.
