Thanks to JR's inspiring words last week we've seen a big surge of interest in the book. Sales on Amazon and Kindle are up dramatically, as are other e-reader formats on Smashwords. Partners are starting to spread the word and others are joining up because they've heard about Freedom Island.
I always felt that JR had something here--the manuscript came to me within just a few weeks after I first heard of the Tea Party movement and other citizens groups who are fighting mad about the attitude in Washington, the feeling of so many of us that our politicians are completely out of touch. People are realizing that the status quo, career politicians, and a president who is clearly more interested in being a celebrity than a leader--those values aren't working for us anymore. Without giving away the ending to the book, for those who haven't read it yet, I just have to say that I'd love to see the Island lifestyle adopted here and now!
We're just ten days away from our Bestseller Launch Campaign. The excitement here in the office is palpable. If you know anyone--a person or an organization--whose values go along with the concept of smaller government, lower taxes, more freedom for our citizens, please have them contact me. We want to spread the canopy wide and get as many participants as possible.
To help with the campaign, all you have to do is be willing to send an email blast to your personal, business or organization mailing list. Please note that to avoid being accused of spamming, these need to be opt-in list subscribers or personal contacts. Do not contact us with offers of broadcast emailing to unknown people--no one wants spam! If you have an opt-in list, we will provide a letter for you to send. You may want to add a short personal introduction, then you just send the message out to your list. That's it. I'll provide complete details if you want to contact me. As I mentioned in an earlier post, there will be some nice bonus publications (Five free books and several other documents at last count) for everyone who purchases Freedom Island on the campaign day, April 15th.
The excitement builds!!
