Book: Many thanks!

So much is happening so fast with Basics of Resistance (both versions).

We owe big thanks:

To Survivalblog and James Wesley, Rawles for putting us at the top of their recommendations list and giving the book an extra boost.

To Western Rifle Shooters Association and Concerned American. I don’t always agree with CA, and the WRSA comment section should be marked “Here Be Dragons.” But CA has been a huge friend to the book, with his latest gift being another big boost yesterday.

To Wendy McElroy who put us at the top of her News & Commentary page yesterday with a beautiful recommendation.

And of course to Joel, who’s faithfully given us updates, as well as contributing several memes.

Thanks to them — and to you who’ve generously rushed in to order — the paperback joined the Kindle this morning in becoming a #1 New Release.

We’ve slipped from that status, but the paperback remains #3 in Civil Rights and Liberties and #6 in Intelligence and Espionage. And the Kindle is still a #1, #2, and #3 best seller in various categories. This means less than you’d think in overall sales; but it’s YUGE when it comes to bragging rights.


Now, speaking of memes, I’d better get back to organizing, prepping, and posting them here and at Practical Freedomista. More soon.

    Them’s some big guns firing buyers your direction! Awesome!

    Is there any way for us to buy an autographed copy of this book? Or to get it autographed? Are you making appearances anytime soon?

    Some of us like to have sharpie ink on that title page.

    ~Qjay — Thanks for asking. At this moment the only way to get autographed copies is to buy in bulk and request autographs on multiple copies. But we will definitely be working on this.

    Given the logistics — shipping comes directly from Amazon, Kit and I needing to sign from different states — autographing isn’t simple. Once this first rush is over, Kit and I will talk about how to do it.

    The Practical Freedomista website is very well done as is with everything you ladies do.

    On the WRSA issue, CA has turned off the comments which considering what was being said there was a good idea IMHO. I thought the comments were distracting from what CA is trying to accomplish.

    With Book 1, I smell a big winner.

    I also think this book should be marketed both left and right, to all of those who are interested in standing against tyranny. Therefore I am going to recommend that there be some effort in getting a left leaning website endorsement.

    My pleasure, Claire. Once I can read the book, I’ll be able to post a review at Amazon and my blog. I’ve already posted its availability at TMM and will post the review there and other places once it is done.

    And Comrade X, that is a very interesting idea. I know a “lefty” in So. Calif. I’ll send her a gift paperback and see what she says.

    We’re just now beginning to think about sending out review copies, ML. I’m making a list and you’re on it. I’ll PM you.

    “On the WRSA issue, CA has turned off the comments which considering what was being said there was a good idea IMHO.”

    I knew he’d turned off comments on at least one post relating to our book (because as you know some of what was being said about us was not only negative, which is fine, but so vulgar no civilized person would have wanted to read it). I also knew CA was looking for a solution to WRSA’s comment problem and talking about creating a forum. I didn’t know he’d turned off comments in general.

    I’m going to see if my local library will allow me to donate a copy of this new bestselling book to them.
