The G.O.O.D. Plan (Get Out Of Dodge)

Postby gc_mountainman » Thu May 31, 2012 3:17 am

Howdy,

After weeks of debating with myself as to whether or not, I should disclose that I have written a book I have finally decided.

So, in December 2009, I started to write my book The G.O.O.D. Plan (Get Out Of Dodge) and by December 2012 it was ready to be published. To that end, Paladin Press, Colorado, USA - expressed interest in my book if I would sign over all the rights to the book. I don't want to sound ungrateful, but I worked long and hard on this, and I am not giving away the rights. So, I am still searching for a publisher.

In the meantime, I will start posting my book on my blog. I have the first 3 parts posted at this time. I hope the readers will send me some feedback, and maybe I will need to do a re-write before it will be published. However, until then the members of this community may be able to find some valuable information for their personal/family emergency preparedness plan.

The G.O.O.D. Plan (Get Out Of Dodge) is not a survival manual, it is an evacuation manual. Manual may be too strong of a descriptor, but the best one I can think of at the moment. Everywhere you read make a plan, make a plan. But it is rare to actually find a sample plan. So, I hope this is helpful to those looking to work on their evac plan.

First I flog my blog, now I am flogging my book. Shameless. :mrgreen:

ICRCC, You are welcome.

Denob, PM sent.

Wilde, Thanks for the encouragement. I will persevere! I am so shameless...... :oops:

Thanks for the support. Maybe, one day there will be a hard copy to hold in your hands.

What about self publishing on Kindle? Amazon? Other site?

I started to self-publish on Kindle, but their formatting over-rode my formatting and scrabbled the layout of the pages. I do not have the HTML programming skills at this time to reset back to my normal. I do not have the time or patience right now to sit down and manually adjust the Kindle copy line by line. As for self-publishing a hard copy, I have used Island Blue in Victoria, BC and they did a very good job. But there again, I am required to pay for the copies up front and then sell them. I couldn't sell a glass of water to someone in the Sahara Desert. I may be able to write a book, but I am not a salesman.

iUniverse will print it as well, but again my cash flow issue keeps getting the way. Thanks for the ideas.

There are a few publishers in the Sunshine Coast, up past Sechelt close to Medias?? ssplll.. sucketh..
Do not give up on the bigger ones, either remember to just keep sending in samples, there are stories of people sending out 2-300 then bam.. find one publisher, and on the top of the charts!

At least you finished it up, I muddle about with it every two weeks or so, I keep getting sucked into this forum or another one, plus some other issues.. hhmmpf.. not very military of me anymore, sigh.

Wilde,

I hear you. This forum is great, like electronic crack cocaine. Bet you can't make just one post or only read one. Next thing you know it's midnight. Oops.

As for my book. Yes, I keep looking for options. Like you said, it is complete and ready to go, of course a proof-reader would make it look a lot better. I am still finding minor errors.

I hope you can tear yourself away from here long enough to have your book finished before the end of Summer. :-)
