The second edition of Echoes of Freedom Past, my book about reclaiming our liberty after the assaults of the last few years, goes live Tuesday, and to mark the occasion I’m having a little sale on my “trilogy” of books about the subject.
Echoes is a collection drawn from this blog on the subject of freedom and the Bill of Rights, the increasing attacks on those rights culminating with the unprecedented forced (and now proven fruitless) lockdowns that authoritarians sold as necessary, and what we can do to reclaim and restore some semblance of a free society.
A few months later I released it’s going to be all right, which I conceived as a book of encouragements about living and thriving with hope in troubled times. For more than a decade now, people have grown angrier and meaner and more afraid, and I think those are words we desperately need to share at such times: It’s going to be all right.
These are themes I first collected a decade ago in a little book called Refuse to be Afraid, in which I talked about how scare tactics have become so much a part of our lives, from advertising to politics, and it’s important to keep calm and not to act out the fear that makes us do foolish things sometimes — like willingly surrender our freedom for a false promise of security.
The second edition of Echoes of Freedom Past is not a revision so much as a reshuffling to make it flow a little better. The print book is a more standard size with higher quality paper than the first edition. The short story “Letters from Camp” is placed in the back, rather than smack dab in the middle, to better highlight my dystopian fantasy about living in a re-education camp with other folks who saw the government as something other than a kindly charity during the virus scare.
For the first week that the second edition is on sale, the ebook will be on sale for a mere 99 cents at amazon.com, and I’ve also dropped the price of Refuse to be Afraid and it’s going to be all right for those seven days. If you’ve been thinking about picking up one or more of my books, now is as good a time as ever, as you can reap these three collections into your e-readers for a mere $2.97, less than the price of one ebook at the regular price.
My books are all also available in fine print-on-demand versions as well, of course, so you can have my breathless prose in your possession even after the interwebs collapse.
Take advantage of this rare opportunity, leave reviews to help others find the books as well, and thank you very much.
