When writer Charles Whipple decided to publish a book to help raise funds for Japanese earthquake and tsunami victims, it prompted his senior editor Nik Morton to put out his own book for the same cause.

Charles, an editor for Solstice Books, was living in Tokyo when the earthquake and tsunami devastated Japan's north-eastern coast in March. He published a short story collection, A Matter of Tea and other stories (Rebecca Vickery Publishing), to raise funds for the survivors.

Nik, his editor-in-chief at Solstice Publishing, was inspired by this idea, and published his own ebook, When the Flowers are in Bloom, and other stories (Solstice Publishing).

Royalties from both books will go directly to help earthquake and tsunami victims.
