NEW BOOK ANNOUNCEMENT - "When There is No FEMA"
self ^ | Feb 1, 2014 | self

Posted on 01/31/2014 9:42:25 PM PST by The Duke

Hi All,

This posting is to announce the publication of my new book "When There is No FEMA - Survival for Normal People in (Very) Abnormal Times". Before posting this I coordinated with JimRob to receive guidance on how to do this properly.

This professional, textbook-quality, 500+ page book represents the culmination of 3 years of painstaking research and authorship, and is intended to be the definitive reference for anyone interested in modern day disaster preparedness. Topics covered include:

One noteworthy and unique chapter provides a detailed action list and charter for instantly organizing a group, neighborhood or small town to survive a worst-case scenario. Another provides the most thorough treatment of personal and family disaster planning to be found anywhere.

By visiting the book's web site and clicking the 'Free Preview' button (or by clicking on the link below) you can begin to appreciate exactly what it has to offer and how it stands out among modern day survival books.

Web Site: http://nofema.com/
Book Preview Link: http://nofema.com/NoFemaPreview.pdf

Between now and Feb 8, 2014 any Freeper may visit the web site and enter the coupon code 'freep0214b' at checkout to obtain a 25% discount when purchasing the book. Each book shipped will be signed by the author (me) and ALL PROFITS from sales using this coupon code will go to Free Republic (at this point I'm just interested in getting this book into as many hands as possible).

Happy Prepping!
-The Duke

Just a small question. Why did you post this in the middle of the night? Was that per JimRob? If not, you might want to repost this during a more populated time, as this should be seen by the maximum number of folks. JMHO

Looks like just what I need to finally start getting serious, and a little something extry for a good cause. You can’t go wrong.
My order is in. Thanks

Hi Wingy - I thought I would just post a reply to bump it during prime time tomorrow so as to get the broadest exposure. So, we’re thinking the same way.

Thanks for the endorsement Kart! :) That endorsement is particularly significant since you have a copy yourself (I sent a complimentary copy to Kart in recognition of his amaizng job of maintaining preparedness awareness over these past many months).

Congratulations on your book!

Given the timeliness of this topic and especially since you are contributing part of your profits to FR, I (for one) think it would be a great idea to feature this thread for a week or so in the “Breaking News” sidebar.

Just my opinion, FWIW.

Great concept and good work. If anyone needs a reason to read your book - the reason can be found in Peter Heller’s ‘The Dog Stars’. Scary!!!!!! Not a movie yet - but it surely will be.

http://www.movieinsider.com/m11078/the-dog-stars/

Storyline

Set years after a superflu virus has taken most of mankind off the map, a man lives in the hangar of an abandoned airport with his dog. He spends his days flying the perimeter in his Cessna, looking out for intruders and thinking about the things he’s lost—his deceased wife and the nearly extinct trout he loved to fish. When a distant radio transmission sparks in him the realization that something better might be out there, the man sets out and discover that things are both better and worse out there.

It’s currently not in bookstores, however it’s been very well received among the various preparadness “meetup groups” across the country. Since it’s a specialty interest I’m just making use of social media to spread the word.

You’ll find this book a worthy addition. I take both the subject (and the printed word in general) very seriously, and I’m sure you’ll see that in the book. :)

I received a Review Copy and it is EXCELLENT. Well put together, VERY informative and vital info for anyone to have. Made me beef up my plans in a few areas. Easy to read, easy to follow information.

After seeing what Atlanta went through this past week, if anyone is NOT prepared for a disaster - Man-made or Natural - it’s their own d@mn fault! I plan on being the Last Woman Standing if need be. :)

THANK YOU! :)

Thanks mucho ... I think you'll find it a valuable resource. I tried hard to address the deficiencies that I saw in all the other preparedness books I had read, and I think I did a pretty good job.

Many of those other books also promised to inform readers how to "thrive" during disaster - this book is more down-to-earth.

I’m a stickler for language myself, so I think you’ll see that throught the book. I’m sure there must be one or two grammar errors, but probably not much more than that. Each chapter went through 15 separate quality reviews. In some cases those reviews required complete rewrites ... I bet I spent 5 months just getting through the rewrite of the survival farming chapter.

I think everyone should remember something.

When/if the stores run out, that’s it.
There are no “special” stores that FEMA people go to.
There are no “special” stores that local police or fire fighters go to.
I live near JBLM, there are no “special” stores that JBLM families go to. (Actually, they may have PX’s there, who knows how long they could be supplied or if they are even supplied with foodstuffs.)

The point I am trying to make is that if you are huddling in the corner at home waiting for someone “official” to save your back, there is a possibility that the first person who knocks on your door will be ready to take every single thing they can get!
If he/she has a badge, that just makes it easier!

Thanks much. I didn’t really start living until I started prepping, and the few friends I had were folks I worked with. Since starting prepping I’ve forged some great friendships with people from all walks of life, and gained tremendous knowledge (I’ve also lost 90 lbs, with more to come/go!).

I don’t think there would really be a FEMA when the SHTF.

I know at least two people who have been trained for FEMA who are in it so they and their expended families will have advance notice if things go bad. Both have told me that they never would show up if there was an emergency.

Should’ve just titled it, “When there IS FEMA”, since the post-apocalyptic result will probably be about the same. Remember how well they did in NOLA after Katrina?

Based on recent events wouldn't the more accurate title be.

There is NO FEMA

This book has now been added to my "Burning times library".

Prep On.

Well, I suspect if the group of victims had a reputation for voting primarily for Democrats that FEMA *might* show up, if only to hand out blank checks.
