Finally, I have some news to share with you all about the book! Very exciting!
I’ve received the first completed version of the book back from the publisher (in digital form), allowing me to review the styles, fonts, margins, headings, etc. and make revisions to the whole thing before it gets printed and distributed! I’ve also seen how the cover of the book is going to be designed, which I think strikes a wonderful balance between elegant, simple, and expressive. It’s amazing to see a professionally crafted document with my own analysis and words in there!
What does this mean? It means I can put the finishing touches on the book and send it back to the publisher for more revisions, and then it’s time to push my baby out into the world and see where it goes. Once the revisions are done and it’s time to promote the book for wider audiences I will of course share the information with everyone, but until then Patreon backers will all get more sneak-peaks, details and personal accounts of what it’s like to bring this creation to finalization. Yes, I’ll even be sharing some snippets with them, even at the lowest tier of support. Their generosity and encouragement has greatly spurred me on during the brutal Summer of setbacks and hurdles, and kept me producing content for the site, so thank you very much to all the readers and supporters. I want nothing more than to release my book to you guys and kick off a new era of Mr. Wolfe’s META GEAR.
Thank you to my readers for supporting me the whole way through the writing process of the book. It’s been a very tough and exciting process. Check out the below video to see me talk about how it feels now that the book is finished and in the hands of the publishing company.
I have personally done several edits of my book, fully revising and touching up the phrasing, structure, trains of thought, etc. etc. I’ve had several people read the book and give me feedback. But now that I’ve hired an actual self-publishing company and finalized the monetary details, I’ve been able to hire an actual editor to polish the book for a final manuscript.
The great news is: we are finally actually working on editing the document and making the notes!
At some point, the author is unable to see the flaws in their own work. If I were to try to edit the book on my own at this point, I’d probably rewrite everything because I’m just bored of the same way I’ve written it and read it dozens of times. But a dedicated and highly particular editor who wants to be proud to put their name on the product is a great way to really pinpoint what can be done better.
This is very exciting to me because for a long time I’ve been waiting in limbo for various things to be finalized related to publishing options, negotiation, contract writing, mail delivery (yes that still happens) and other aggravating details I don’t normally have to worry about with my happy little website.
So although it’s not as great as hearing about the book being ready to buy, it is the final phase before I hand it off to the publishing company and let them do their magic.
If you’d like to stay even more up to date with the book’s progress in the coming months, you can chip in to the Patreon and have insider updates.
The final draft of the book has been complete for a while, except for the copious amounts of footnotes that will need to be added. Then there will be decisions about formatting and details, including stuff related to the publication of the book, but outside the book itself. I’m more impatient than anyone to have the book released, and I know you will enjoy it once you get it. Your encouragement and interest has gotten me this far, and I will continue to work to the end — and hopefully get the chance to make Part Two!
The US election is over, and Donald Trump has won. Nobody knows what this will mean for America or the world, but the corrupt powers who’ve been controlling world affairs since the end of World War II will not disappear. The new Trump administration has the potential to undo the damage of globalism and prevent its worst atrocities from happening; foreign leaders might take note of the patriotic, nationalist, populist success of Trump over the pure globalist puppet Hillary Clinton and start looking after their own interests instead of selling out to the U.N. and other international bodies. It could also mean a series of engineered disasters for America, as the globalists around the world take their revenge against Trump for daring to challenge them — there’s a Solidus Snake analogy here somewhere. I guess what I’m saying is, don’t end up like Raiden, thinking you’re a hero for fighting against a man who takes on the secret rulers of the world. You’d just be doing their bidding.
In a book he wrote called “War is A Racket”, this is what a former Marine Major General had to say about the nature of the war:
I suspected I was just part of a racket at the time. Now I am sure of it. Like all the members of the military profession, I never had a thought of my own until I left the service. My mental faculties remained in suspended animation while I obeyed the orders of higher-ups. This is typical with everyone in the military service.
I helped make Mexico, especially Tampico, safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefits of Wall Street. The record of racketeering is long. I helped purify Nicaragua for the international banking house of Brown Brothers in 1909-1912 (where have I heard that name before?). I brought light to the Dominican Republic for American sugar interests in 1916. In China I helped to see to it that Standard Oil went its way unmolested.
People around the world have seen US military dominance as a racket for as long as it has operated abroad, but this is a high ranking official who blindly served America. The whole “we’re not tools of the government, or anyone else” speech comes to mind…
