Basics of Resistance, which we hope (cross fingers) will be the first in a series called The Practical Freedomista, is DONE!!!!
Kit Perez and I have been busting our buns to meet an Amazon deadline dictated by our planned pre-release and launch schedules. I’ve been editing; Kit’s been laying the book out for Kindle and inputting my changes. And she just uploaded it:
This is Kit’s first book ever. It’s my first in … oh, how many years? Loooooong time. I’d forgotten what a hectic time those last few weeks could be. This is also my first self-published book, and I don’t think I’d have enjoyed navigating layout.
Kit not only plunged into the layout work, but about two minutes after uploading the Kindle version, she’s already working on the paperback. And on marketing.
Me, I’m enjoying a huge, unhealthy breakfast. I’ll post some links in a bit, but then I’m taking the rest of the day off. Maybe catch up on some emails to a friend who’s approaching a very deep moment of his life this week.
Our book is aimed at a youngish libertarian/anarchist/general freedomista audience, and especially those who are serious enough to think about resisting and organizing resistance to tyranny in the long term. (But we won’t complain if a lot of others want to read it.) We focus on non-violent (but not passive!) forms of resistance.
Pre-orders for the Kindle version open April 1 at the one-time-only price of $0.99. Full launch is April 19, at which time the price goes to $3.49.
Details on the print-on-demand paperback are still to come.
