Since I used to be 5 years outdated I started writing brief tales and informed my dad and mom that I needed to be an writer after I grew up. Quick-forward and my thirty seventh birthday subsequent week will mark 11 years for the reason that publishing of my first books Asbestos Head and The Atlantean Conspiracy. On the time I despatched the manuscripts to over 200 literary brokers and publishers hoping to get broad distribution by a longtime firm. As a result of delicate material, nonetheless, not a single agent or writer was keen to take them on. My solely accessible possibility left was self-publishing and unbiased distribution. So as to get them recognized and skim, I provided on-line variations fully free and have since self-published 4 extra books. My most up-to-date, the primary ever illustrated flat Earth kids’s e-book, “The Earth Airplane,” has been translated to 10 languages, and my most-popular “200 Proofs Earth is Not a Spinning Ball” translated right into a whopping 25 languages all at no cost by devoted, beneficiant bilingual activists trying to get them into as many palms as doable.
The issue with self-publishing and unbiased distribution, nonetheless, is that established channels with in-routes to bookstores, faculties and libraries have virtually no approach of figuring out about your books. Consequently, regardless that my PDFs have now been downloaded and skim by tens of millions of individuals, bodily copies haven’t obtained such a heat welcome, and have but to make it into bookstores, faculties and libraries the place they might do essentially the most profit. I lately thought, as a private favor to me, for my birthday this 12 months, from anybody who’s keen and ready, there’s nothing I would need greater than to your assist getting my books into bookstores, faculties and libraries world wide. Alone it could be a pipe-dream, however with only a few minutes of your time, my want might very simply come true.
What I am asking of everybody is solely this: The following time you go to your native large chain or unbiased bookstore, your neighborhood library, or close by faculty, college or jail library, suggest and request that they carry Eric Dubay’s books. They will all be discovered on each Amazon and Lulu, and most bookstores and libraries will have the ability to carry them on particular request. Some shops will organize them simply on advice, whereas others would require you to buy a replica by them; likewise some libraries will order simply primarily based on suggestion, and others will solely carry them for those who donate copies. I’ve personally purchased copies of my books to present to neighborhood libraries in Maine, USA the place I am from, and heard many inspiring life-changing tales of inmates who learn copies of my books donated to jail libraries. When you might purchase and donate, or at the very least make a particular request to your native bookstores and libraries to hold my books, I’d actually respect it.
Huge publishing firms with broad distribution networks merely will not contact the controversial, paradigm-shifting materials coated in my books, and so the one strategy to really get them into the palms of the minds that the majority want them essentially the most, is to independently strategy them and get them there ourselves. Thanks a lot to anybody who may help make this occur and to everybody who has proven their assist.
