Many people don’t know that before I started illustrating books full time, I worked as a writer/illustrator. I enjoyed some real success, with some of my books even ending up in the private libraries of the CIA, FBI, and FEMA — with excerpts from one title even being read into the US Congressional record at one point.
Occasionally I return to my roots as a writer, and over the last couple of months I’ve been putting the finishing touches on a massive manual that basically distills my decades of experience in the survival field into one book that covers all the bases from crime and storms to chemical and biological weapons and all points in between.
At the moment I’m offering this manual exclusively as a Kindle ebook, with plans to add a hardcover version to my lineup the first of 2013. Eventually the title will move from there to Nook and other ebook formats as the economics of marketing the title dictate.
I’ve written this manual with an eye to the “average Joe or Jane” who’s more interested in knowing what to do during any of a variety of emergencies rather than becoming a hard-core prepper or survivalist. Think of this book more as an insurance policy that you’ll hopefully never need — but which you’re surely be glad you bought should you ever actually need it.
Although this publication is huge (as might be expected since it covers everything from how to avoid being a victim of crime to what to do during any of a variety of medical emergencies to how to survive a terrorist attack or all-out war in your neck of the woods), I’ve kept the price down to just $3.99 for the Kindle version.
My goal is to get this live-saving information out to as many people as possible.
So far, the book has garnered some serious downloads and some nice reviews:
“Duncan Long is one of the two best writers on this planet on preparedness and survival topics.” – Kevin Swindle, Kevin Swindle Preparedness Newsletter
“Three words- Riveting, awakening, enlightening. This one is an outstanding reality check for the masses that everyone should read…. It covers every aspect of ‘what if’ that we all should be aware of, and make considerations to. It blew me into a wake-up call…. Pick this book, and you will not put it down.” – Cynthia Templin
“This author has done his homework. He’s not an extremist or alarmist but gives very sound practical insights and solutions that are doable by almost anyone. Worth the read and the price!” – James D. Day
Disasters happen. But there’s a lot you can do to prevent becoming a victim of such events.
