Buy These Books and We’ll Plant Trees!

We are a collective of authors who use a proportion of their book revenue to plant trees, these are our books.

Plant a Book is a simple initiative: An author-led movement, where authors themselves plant trees. By pledging to contribute a percentage of their book revenues, authors super-charge the sustainability cycle. Trees get planted, books get imagined. Trees get harvested, books get made, and sold. Authors plant more trees. The intention is to unite the story-makers of our time to sustain literature while bettering the planet in a practical way.

Canopy Harvest

Canopy Harvest by Woody Hayday

War-torn, resource-stripped, pissed off. By 2045 man had all but burnt down his own house. The threat of environmental annihilation loomed, and so a machine was built.

Earth’s hostile land spat Willsith into space, hung-over and broken. War had trained him to fight, but when his younger brother died, he denounced it. Now, five years later, he finds himself managing a team of five, maintaining section 229 of ‘the great solution’: Earth’s Halo. This ring of carbon circles the globe in near space, acting as a giant solar panel, producing power for Earth’s regeneration. It’s also a jump-point to Mars, and a damned rock-magnet.

But stray rocks are the least of Willsith’s worries.

When 229 uncover information about the ring administration, Control, they find themselves destined for lobotomised slavery on the new Mars city, Tacern. Willsith is left no option but to lead an escape.

Battling through the biggest machine ever made, to escape into unknown space, Willsith struggles to overcome a lifetime of violence in order to free his friends, and to save the Earth from a new kind of terror.
