Many of you have suggested that I should find a publisher for The Journal. As The Journal draws to a close, that consideration has risen higher on my radar. Once the final entries are wrapped up, The Journal will be available in its entirety for Kindle via Amazon and for the Nook via Barnes & Noble’s Nook Book Store. I also plan to work on a PDF version for those with neither a Kindle nor a Nook.
I’ve also identified a handful of publishers with whom I would like to work to produce a paperback version of The Journal. As many of you know, Glenn Beck partnered with Simon & Schuster last year to launch Mercury Ink. Mercury Ink’s goal is to “discover, publish and promote books and authors that Glenn is passionate about across a variety of genres.” I believe The Journal and Mercury Ink would make a great match.
Unfortunately, Mercury Ink does not accept unsolicited manuscripts. Of course, much like survival in the new normal, where there is a will, there is a way. You, the readers of The Journal, can help Glenn and Mercury “discover” The Union Creek Journal.
“How?” you may ask. It’s really quite simple. Go straight to the top. Send Mr. Beck an e-mail. As one might expect, Glenn receives hundreds of e-mails a day. But, what if he received hundreds of e-mails in a single day all with the subject, “The Union Creek Journal”? Somewhere between 4000 and 5000 people read The Journal every day. Do you suppose Glenn Beck would take a look at The Journal if he received four or five thousand e-mails all titled “The Union Creek Journal”? I’m betting that he would.
Mr. Beck’s e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you would like to see The Journal published by Mercury Ink, simply click on the link above, put The Union Creek Journal in the subject line of your e-mail, tell Mr. Beck why you think he should publish The Journal and politely ask him to do so.
Let’s see what happens!
Thank you for your support,
