Woo Hoo New Book - Foreign Enemies and Traitors - has arrived
mtnclimber | 5-20-2009 | MtnClimber

Posted on 05/20/2009 10:36:48 AM PDT by MtnClimber

Woo Hoo! The third in the Foreign Enemies series by Matt Bracken (FReeper Travis McGee) just showed up in my mail box. I sent in a check in advance to get an autographed copy! The full title "Foreign Enemies and Traitors, The Greater Depression and Civil War 2" seems very timely!

Iineresting that the picture on the cover shows the USA torn into four pieces. Ironically Bill Ayers and the Weather Underground wanted to overthrow the USA and divide it into four pieces which would be given to North Korea, China, Cuba and the Soviet Union.

"Iineresting" = Interesting

Spell check would be my friend if I used it!

You will see FRee Republic in the plot of the first book, but with a subtle name change.

Thanks! I have just finished sending out all 650+ pre-orders today.

All existing orders are in the mail, and should arrive in a few days to a week.

Can’t wait to get started. I read the excerpt on your website which is listed in post #3 above. I noticed you are approaching half a million hits on your website counter!

How many ink pens did you go through? Bet your fingers are cramping up big time. Looking forward to mine when you get the next load in.

As always, thanks for continuing to serve your country.

I have not read the third book except the excerpt. To follow the plot you really need to start with the first book. Be careful! You will find yourself reading way too late into the night to get up in time for work!

I’ve ordered mine on Amazon. I honestly wish I could have gotten a pre-order, but when the post office loses an important piece of tax documentation TWICE, you don’t have as much confidence in it anymore.

Oh well. I’ve waited years for the book to come out; I can wait a few more weeks.

I have a quick turn-around work project that is due June 1. I will be working over the weekend and holiday to finish on time. I am going to put the book away for now. It is just staring at me!

Great work. I would advise Freepers to set aside some serious time for this book. You will fly through it.

Congratulations Matt.

Amazon is a little funny at the start of a new book, they only order a few the first days. Today they ordered 75, so I guess the Amazon orders are coming in.

Can’t wait to get mine. Matt’s books are absolute page turners, better than Baldacci and DeMille. If you need a dose of America loving, kill the bad guys kind of read like a good Vince Flynn book, order all three of these. They are great.

About 10% are signed copies from me, 50% are Amazon, and the rest are split between 5 or 6 wholesalers and catalog companies.

But you don’t have to buy a book on Amazon to leave a review. You just register and you can leave a review.

If you actually go to the Amazon web site to order the book, they (as of Thursday night) say it “usually ships in two to four weeks”.

If you order a book directly from Matt you will probably get a postcard in the mail instructing on how to order the next book in advance!

I ordered mine from him a few weeks ago - hopefully it’s in the batch of 650 he just finished sending out.

But at the very end of the batch; I just finished the first two and need to catch up on my sleep.

I sent in my payment back in January or February, right after I got the postcard in the mail from Matt. I will have to log in to Amazon to leave a review. Other FReepers should do the same! Booksellers seem to be liberals so we need to help counter their lunacy.

Amazon has no humans working there. It’s the borg. Totally automated, run by Tandy TRS-80 computers.

Once the 75 books arrive in a day or two, the website will automatically switch to saying the books are immediately available. No human will make this change or care. Amazon is just a vast Pentagon sized building staffed by robots and run by computers.

Almost all of the Dec-Feb orders were mailed by May 13. Then I went to AZ for the NRA thing for 4 days, and the rest were shipped yesterday. So you should have it pronto, either way. But I use “Media Mail” rate, so there are no guarantees on speedy delivery. Typically it’s under a week coast to coast. Alaska is the outlier, it can take weeks.

Matt,
My box of books arrived yesterday..
Thank you for signing them all - and including so many cards..
I've taken to leaving them in some of the better restaurants and my favorite watering holes in San Jose and Los Gatos....

As I mentioned before, but I'll remind you - your trilogy has become REQUIRED READING for our Children and Grand Children - if they wish to remain in the will or for the college age kids if they wish to continue receiving “granny dollars” in their college checking account...

It works - and they have been passing the quizzes - so I know they have paid attention....

Thanks again for your prompt shipments..

After this trilogy has been completed is there anything in the future? Note: have not read the third book yet so don’t know if there is a continuation.

Nope, after FEAT, I’m finished with these characters. It really begins to box a writer in, having to live inside the constraints of a long lasting complex fictional world. I still intend to write some “future fiction,” but with a new world and characters.
