Travis McGee's Book In Third Printing
www.EnemiesForeignAndDomestic.com ^ | September 13th, 2004 | Travis McGee

Posted on 09/13/2004 3:37:07 PM PDT by Travis McGee

Today, on the day the so-called Assault Weapons Ban has passed into history, I thought I'd mention that my Second Amendment novel "Enemies Foreign And Domestic" has just gone into its third printing. The first 3,000 copies have sold out in the past year, and I'm publishing another 2,000 copies. Thanks to all of the freepers who have helped to make the book an internet cult hit!

And I'd also like to mention that with the radical left in complete hysteria over the prospects of a second Bush term, the chances of an arranged "assault rifle massacre" before the election are greater than ever. With the sunset of the AWB all over the national news today, it must be crossing radical minds that a well-timed "assault rifle massacre" could be blamed on President Bush "allowing" the sale of semi-auto rifles.

Shoot! That reminds me I need to order one. I'm settled in in the new place now. Will write offline.

Congratulations, Trav!

It's a great book.
I have the hardest time getting my copy back from those I lend it to.

Isn't there a second book in the works?

Congratulations on the success of your book! I'm not surprised, I just finished reading it yesterday and enjoyed it immensely. I had ordered it along with Unfit for Command from Amazon (in order to qualify for free shipping). I read your book first and highly recommend it. Anyone interested can see some fine reviews over at Amazon.com.

Congratulations!

BTW, don't be surprised to see major publishers sniffing around. You have one thing that many of their authors do not have: an audience.

By the way, you get up into about the 8-10k copies sold and some major players in New York publishing will become very interested in you. My own publisher, Penguin, is starting a conservative imprint called Sentinel, though I don't know if they'll handle fiction at this point. You might want to get in touch with them.

WooHoo! Go Trav go!

Go for 10K! That's my present goal with my own series. But that's a goal with five books...you can do it with one!

Onward and upward from there!

All of us conservative/constitutional self-publishers have to stick together.

About time you got some more from the printer. ;>)
I ordered from Amazon to get you on the "list" and had to wait too dang long.

Tell all of us what purchase outlet affords you the best exposure so that you can get the widest attention to open up the big market for you.

Good work, but get someone else to proofread after running spellczech.

Stay well, safe and armed.

Yo Snake! I liked everything about your second book better than the first except the cover art. (probably cause I'm an old fart and the heroes looked young) :)

" . . . it must be crossing radical minds that a well-timed "assault rifle massacre" could be blamed on President Bush "allowing" the sale of semi-auto rifles."

It wouldn't surprise me if they already have a more wide-sweeping ban already written and waiting in the wings for it's 'co-incidental' cue, ala Clinton and the anti-militia garbage after OKC.

Congrats on the third printing!

I'm working on the sequel now, "Domestic Enemies." It's set five years after EFAD in an "Aztlanized" Southwest, during a period of economic collapse and ethnic violence.

True, but I just love it when the NYT has to admit that something other than liberal pap can sell.

I have considered loaning it out, but books never get returned.

I suppose I could just buy another copy if that happens.

I *just* finally picked up my copy yesterday at the local gun show.
