I just thought that I would post a brief update. I ceased my blogging about nine days ago. I am currently compiling a new small book of essays. It will start off with the best essays of my September to December blogging, best being defined by both my opinion and the ones that received the most page views. I will then add several all new essay to it, as a thank you to my readers who are interested enough to buy my print works. I currently editing this.
I have had few sales of my earlier two books in November and December, so I assume that most of my serious readers already have a copy. For any new readers who somehow come across this blog, I published two books earlier this year, Putnam Liberty Notes in March and As America Fades in August. They are about 100 pages each, and are available on Amazon for $5 each.
I took this picture of me holding them on my front porch on this sub freezing, flurrying morning.
While I have not been blogging the last week, I have still been promoting my essay I am an Amerikaner, primarily by leaving links to it in the comments that I make on other news sites. I have had over 200 page views on that essay in the approximately three weeks since I posted it. If you have not read it check it out on my site here: https://putnamlibertynotes.wordpress.com/2016/11/27/i-am-an-amerikaner/
While I do not know how many people loved it, how many thought it was okay, and how many were perhaps freaked out by it -two people commented on it and a third (whom I do not know and who calls himself HonestAmerican) re-posted a part of my essay on his site with a recommendation for it and a link to my site to tread my essay in full! This is only the second time that people have done so for one of my essays. (It looks like there is a video attached, which did not play on my laptop, and which has had about 68 views). My piece on his site may be viewed here http://www.popmopdal.com/video/27876/i-am-an-amerikaner/
I intend to continue promoting the Amerikaner concept, and to devote several essays in my next book to it. I hope to have my next book out sometime in January. It will probably be in the 100 page range, and sell for $5 like my other recent books.
