I owe a genuine debt of gratitude to the readers of The Bolen Report. It’s one thing to put a book together, but it’s quite another thing to figure out the best strategy to get that story out to the public.
I’m probably not alone in being frustrated by the glacial pace of traditional publishing. My agent had started pitching my new book, INOCULATED: How Science Lost its Soul in Autism, back in February, and although there was some interest, nothing was on the table. Even if some publisher bit in the summer, the book probably wouldn’t be available to the public until 2018. That was too long for me.
My agent told me that her agency had its own publishing division and if I wanted, I could publish with them. But I wouldn’t have the big marketing push of a traditional publisher. That was fine with me, as I had always considered this something of a guerilla campaign. We could get it out to the public very quickly. But I wanted to know if that was the right way to go and so I put this question to the readers of The Bolen Report.
Your responses were informed, passionate, well-reasoned, and I listened. I’ve always had this sense that the book should be published in November of 2016, either before or after the Presidential election, and right now the publishing date is Wednesday, November 9. And hopefully by now Amazon has updated the listing so you see the picture of my beautiful cover and a summary of the book. And I’ve hired a first-rate marketing team. We’re going to knock this one out of the park.
But I felt I should do more to express my gratitude to the readers of The Bolen Report, so I’m giving you an exclusive “sneak peek” at the first few pages. I want you to know I really do mean to start a rebellion. I also want to express my personal appreciation to Tim Bolen for his suggestions about the book and publicity. He is a man who knows how to think, strategize, and fight.
For those of you who want to know the inside story of CDC whistle-blower, Dr. William Thompson, the years of struggle of Dr. Brian Hooker to find out the truth about vaccines and autism, and the thirty-year disaster vaccines have become since the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act, I give you the first few pages of INOCULATED:
