Basics of Resistance — pre-orders coming

I’ve been intending to blog this, but my writing partner Kit Perez got there first.

Our new book, Basics of Resistance, will be published on April 19. Pre-orders for the Kindle version start April 1. There will also be a paperback; I’m not sure whether that will be released simultaneously or shortly after.

We were originally hoping for a first-quarter 2018 release, but life intervened. That we are still so close to goal is largely Kit’s doing. She has been in “steamroller mode” to keep this project moving and doing a brilliant job.

The ongoing final edit she mentions is mine, however. So the next day or two may be quiet. Or not. ๐Ÿ™‚ I find that editing requires frequent short breaks, during which blogitude can easily happen.

Many thanks to Kit, and to the several people who’ve contributed mightily to making this book what it’s going to be.

    Wahoo! 69-year-old housewife turns cartwheels of joy in middle of street. (How embarrassing!) Please count me in for a paperback too.

    Hmmm, April 1st?

    Easter – Well, I do consider Jesus the Christ to be the most revolutionary figure in all of history.

    I’ll let someone else figure out a tie-in to April Fools Day.

    Looking forward to the dead-tree edition.

    {Initially I thought “The Revolution is Risen; It is risen indeed!” Too political for Easter.}

    Concord Hymn

    By the rude bridge that arched the flood,
    Their flag to Aprilโ€™s breeze unfurled,
    Here once the embattled farmers stood,
    And fired the shot heard round the world.

    The foe long since in silence slept;
    Alike the conqueror silent sleeps;
    And Time the ruined bridge has swept
    Down the dark stream which seaward creeps.

    On this green bank, by this soft stream,
    We set to-day a votive stone;
    That memory may their deed redeem,
    When, like our sires, our sons are gone.

    Spirit, that made those heroes dare,
    To die, and leave their children free,
    Bid Time and Nature gently spare
    The shaft we raise to them and thee.

    โˆ’ Ralph Waldo Emerson, upon the erection in 1837 of a cenotaph memorializing the battle at the Old North Bridge, in Concord, Massachusetts, April 19, 1775, which was the morning after Paul Revere’s ride.
