Preparedness Notes for Monday — May 25, 2020
Today marks Memorial Day, 2020. Never forget the lives that have been lost, in the defense of our nation.
On May 25th, 1787, The Constitutional Convention convened in Philadelphia with George Washington presiding. The task of the peaceful overthrow of the new American government as it had been defined by the Article of Confederation eventually led to the United States Constitution that is so abused today.
Reader Matt X. wrote with this sad news: Dave Canterbury’s house burned down! Dave Canterbury runs a wilderness school that teaches bushcraft called the Pathfinder School, located in the Midwest.
On May 15th his house burned down and his family got out with just the clothes on their backs. There’s a Gofundme set up to help them recover, here.
You can see the husk of Dave’s home here.
Please pray for the Canterbury family, and help them out, if you can.
I’ve been getting a lot queries about my upcoming nonfiction book release. The title is: The Ultimate Prepper’s Survival Guide. The book’s Foreword was written by Michael Z. Williamson. It is 240 pages, and profusely illustrated with color photos. The binding is wire-o style (so it lays flat, when open), and it measures 10.5 x 11.25 inches. The publisher is Welbeck Publishing, in London. The printing for the American Edition has just begun in Hong Kong, and meanwhile the UK Edition is being printed in Dubai. To allow time for traditional oceanic shipping of tens of thousands copies in the initial print run, it will not be released in the U.S. until October 20th, 2020. Please WAIT to order your copies until the official release day. The goal is to generate publicity from the spike in sales, to push it to the top of the sales rankings. I call this a “Book Bomb Day.” That is what catapulted three of my previous books to Amazon’s Top Ten, and into the New York Times Bestsellers List. Note that I won’t be selling any copies directly. But The Ultimate Prepper’s Survival Guide should be available at major book stores and from all major online book sellers. Also note that a special edition just for Costco stores that includes a 16-page bonus chapter with my Lists of Lists will be available perhaps as early as mid-August. Many Thanks, – JWR
