nomadikon: road journal

a... Publication with a cause (account of the 1st year)

"nomadikon" was published for the times in February of 2012. At the time, it was a risky self publication attempt of a debut author. Today, a year later, the risky attempt has already showed the first signs of success:

  • The 3rd edition will be on print within the year, of 2.000 copies in total.
  • Donation to our "cause" from the sales of the book , come to 1.756,00 USD to date (February 13').
  • The content and message of our cause has been heard to a few thousand people.
    Our official web-site had more than 5.500 unique visitors and the relay of the message for "Shared Prosperity" has an impact on an ever growing audience.
  • The concept of Publication with a cause has already served as an example to follow, within the field of the social industry - which was one of our primary goals.
    "Free Thinking Zone" publications, released "Za Za" last November, which as we were informed, was inspired from our example and decided to donate part of their sales to the international organization LOVE 146 as well as the KEAN network for their efforts against abuse and trafficking of women and even more, children.
