Flat Earth Activism: Schools, Prisons, Libraries and Bookstores

Since I was 5 years old I began writing short stories and told my

parents that I wanted to be an author when I grew up. Fast-forward and

my 37th birthday next week will mark 11 years since the publishing of my

first books Asbestos Head and The Atlantean Conspiracy. At the time I

sent the manuscripts to over 200 literary agents and publishers hoping

to get wide distribution through an established company. Due to the

sensitive subject matter, however, not a single agent

Since I was 5 years old I began writing short stories and told my

parents that I wanted to be an author when I grew up. Fast-forward and

my 37th birthday next week will mark 11 years since the publishing of my

first books Asbestos Head and The Atlantean Conspiracy. At the time I

sent the manuscripts to over 200 literary agents and publishers hoping

to get wide distribution through an established company. Due to the

sensitive subject matter, however, not a single agent or publisher was

willing to take them on. My only available option left was

self-publishing and independent distribution. In order to get them

known and read, I offered online versions completely free and have since

self-published 4 more books. My most recent, the first ever

illustrated flat Earth children's book, "The Earth Plane," has been

translated to 10 languages, and my most-popular "200 Proofs Earth is Not

a Spinning Ball" translated into a whopping 25 languages all for free

by dedicated, generous bilingual activists looking to get them into as

many hands as possible.


The difficulty with self-publishing and

independent distribution, however, is that established channels with

in-routes to bookstores, schools and libraries have almost no way of

knowing about your books. As a result, even though my PDFs have now

been downloaded and read by millions of people, physical copies have not

received such a warm welcome, and have yet to make it into bookstores,

schools and libraries where they could do the most benefit. I recently

thought, as a personal favor to me, for my birthday this year, from

anyone who is willing and able, there is nothing I would wish more than

for your help getting my books into bookstores, schools and libraries

around the world. Alone it would be a pipe-dream, but with just a few

minutes of your time, my wish could very easily come true.


What

I'm asking of everyone is simply this: The next time you visit your

local big chain or independent bookstore, your community library, or

nearby school, university or prison library, recommend and request that

they carry Eric Dubay's books. They can all be found on both Amazon and

Lulu, and most bookstores and libraries will be able to carry them on

special request. Some stores will order them just on recommendation,

while others will require you to purchase a copy through them; likewise

some libraries will order just based on suggestion, and others will only

carry them if you donate copies. I have personally bought copies of

my books to give to community libraries in Maine, USA where I'm from,

and heard many inspiring life-changing stories of inmates who read

copies of my books donated to prison libraries. If you could buy and

donate, or at least make a special request to your local bookstores and

libraries to carry my books, I would really appreciate it.


Big

publishing companies with wide distribution networks simply won't touch

the controversial, paradigm-shifting material covered in my books, and

so the only way to actually get them into the hands of the minds that

most need them the most, is to independently approach them and get them

there ourselves. Thank you so much to anyone who can help make this

happen and to everyone who has shown their support.
