On April 30, the next stage of the Ron Paul Revolution begins. Ron Paul releases The Revolution: A Manifesto.

Dr. Paul's first original book in over 20 years covers all the issues of the Ron Paul Revolution: on war, sound money, terrorism, the economy, the IRS, civil liberties, the Constitution, and everything in between.

Read the preface, and get a taste of just how important and explosive this book will be.

Our goal is 30,000 pledges by Feb. 5. Let's do it! Pre-orders get a 5% discount @ Amazon.

Big thanks to Chris Brunner for putting this project together. Be sure to check out his site @ www.chrisbrunner.com

I hope so! Ron Paul would use much of the money for the causes he beleives in! he's already pretty financially secure, especially heavily invested in gold stocks, so good for Dr Paul!

Why "Ron Paul's first original book in 20 years"? That doesn't sound like a good selling point. Does it mean he hasn't written anything in 20 years? Or, did he write things that weren't original in the last 20 years? Are his other writings not "original"? What does "original" mean in that context, why is originality being brought up in the first place?

Don't bother answering those questions, I'm just pointing out what arises from that awkward statement.

Btw, I will pledge and send the link to all my friends who are RP supporters. This is a great initiative!

Make sure to put in a good word for the Doctor. People are more willing to read it if there's some passion behind the message.

Of course, if it's alright with Ron Paul.

It's being published by Grand Central Publishing -- the same publisher that put out Colbert's and the Pope's book. He *will* be seeing profit from this, which he'll be free to invest in his own campaign, AFAIK.

Was wondering that myself, the amazon page still doesn't have the full information either. But I pledged on the book bomb site and also preordered 4 copies. For those not sure about the preorder payment, amazon will verify the payment method is valid, but will not charge you until the order is fulfilled. If by chance this comes up for sale directly from Ron Paul or from the campaign HQ, I may cancel with amazon and go that route instead, but preordering with amazon is generally safe.

Also, if the price of the book drops before release date your cost will be updated and you should still get a 5% preorder discount. (It may drop, since the current price is the list price, and usually they sell for slightly below list) But again ... their preorder policies are also consumer friendly in this regard as well.

That's an interesting idea...

Instead of raising money separately, I could build something into the site that encourages people to have a copy delivered to a library and then let them check it off once they ordered, assuming we could find a list of all the libraries in the US. That way we wouldn't have to deal with the hassle of PayPal accounts and non-profit status and that sort of thing.

Everyone pre-order from Amazon! You save 5% and your CC will not be charged until the book is shipped. You know you're going to buy the book anyway, so pre-order now, save some cash and get Dr. Paul some much needed exposure.

The book is already up to #629 on the Amazon bestseller list!

Preorders will be counted in first week sales, because according to what I've been told, they count when the book ships to calculate the bestseller numbers.

Thanks. I have no doubt we can get this on the top 10 list. I honestly think that Paul being able to say "best selling author" at this point is worth at bunch of money in free publicity. It adds to his legitimacy in a way that the moneybombs can no longer do, since we have that record.

Before we all "blow our wad" and preorder this book, we should take some time and figure out how best to organize this. We dont want to have 10000000 preorders to get us tops on some list that doesnt matter for a week, when we could wait, be prudent, and get him on the best seller week the first week it is out.

Well, consider this:
1) Both orders and shipments counts towards the Amazon sales rank, from what I understand. (Correct me if I'm wrong.) That means that if we can hit the top 10 today, it will go at least that high when the book comes out.
2) Feb 5 (Super Tuesday) is fast approaching. Wouldn't it be wild if we could propel Dr. Paul to the Top 10, with a book that hasn't even come out yet, before Super Tuesday?

Just thinking outloud...

Please put some transparency statement on the bookbomb site about where the affiliate link proceeds go.

I'm fine with it covering hosting costs but I'm a cynic at heart and would like to know what RP programs will be sponsored with the 5-10% affiliate profits the site will earn for each book directly bought through your link. My cynical side goes 'oh wow, someone figured out how to profit from the ron paul supporters in a super easy way'


This would be much like the RonPaul toolbar is transparent, or the blimp, or other RP sites.

Please put some transparency statement on the bookbomb site about where the affiliate link proceeds go.

I'm fine with it covering hosting costs but I'm a cynic at heart and would like to know what RP programs will be sponsored with the 5-10% affiliate profits the site will earn for each book directly bought through your link. My cynical side goes 'oh wow, someone figured out how to profit from the ron paul supporters in a super easy way'


This would be much like the RonPaul toolbar is transparent, or the blimp, or other RP sites.

Nobody is profiting "from the ron paul supporters in a super easy way"...

First of all, a great deal of time and effort was put into the site.. the graphics, the Flash, the database and PHP backend...

Second of all, the way the links are setup are for tracking purposes. Nobody can see your credit card number. It's the only way to get access to Order reports that say how many pledges translated into orders.

Thirdly, I'm pretty sure that the way the links are setup, it's a violation of Amazon's affiliate agreement, which means I doubt anybody will get paid for that part.

Forthly, the money, if there is any, comes from Amazon and does NOT affect how much the publisher or Ron Paul is paid.

Lastly, if there is any money from it, I will max out my donation to the campaign and pay for hosting, which I've paid for out-of-pocket.

FWIW, I have no problem with people profiting from efforts such as this. Maybe just put in small text somewhere that all affiliate payments will go towards covering hosting/development costs with additional profits going towards the campaign. I think this would actually increase the number of people who use your link rather than going directly to Amazon. Thanks again for setting this up, btw.

Actually, I was suggesting the opposite. I'd like to max out my donation to the campaign before covering hosting costs. I was in such a rush to get all of this working that I didn't even think about adding something like that, but I will.

I don't care which link people use. Trying to figure out how many sales it takes to make a book #1 was a nice thought, but it's not the primary goal.

By the way, we've put Dr. Paul's book at #516 on Amazon! Before we started the book bomb, the book didn't even have a sales rank! It's moving up fast.

Below the product details at amazon's page for the book there is a spot to add and reinforce relevant keyword "tags" for the book. I started it off with a few:

foreign policy, federal reserve, constitution, patriotism, freedom, liberty

Any obvious ones I'm missing people can add, and also you can increase the relevance of the tags so they help in amazon searches.

Everyone who wants to see this book on the national bestseller lists MUST PREORDER THIS WEEK. Why? Because that's how it works. Read this excerpt:



But bestsellerdom isnít determined by total sales. Itís determined by velocity of sales during a given week.

For example: Author X and Author Y each have books released on the same day.

Author X sells 25,000 copies that week and Author Y sells 2,000.

Author X makes the bestseller lists; Author Y does not.

Author X sells 15,000 and 10,000 copies respectively over the next two weeks and remains on the bestseller lists. Author Y sells 2,000 copies in each of those weeks and is nowhere near the lists.

Over the next fifty or so weeks, sales of Author Xís book tail off so that by the end of a year heís sold a total of 100,000 copies. Author Yís book has gained a certain amount of word of mouth and sells 2,000 a week for the entire year for a similar total of 100,000 copies.

Both have sold the same number of copies, yet X is now a "Bestselling Author!" and Y is not.

Why?

Velocity.

Author Xís book sold a ton of copies during the first weeks after release. Thatís known in the publishing world as velocity. It put Author X on the lists, thereby increasing his paperback orders and future hardcover orders.

So when you buy matters, folks.


That was written by someone who actually knows about these things - F. Paul Wilson, a well known author who has been in the biz for decades. Read the complete "Bestsellers 101" here: http://www.repairmanjack.com/newsblog.htm (just scroll down a little ways).

I'm going to get my preorders in today.

PS About the Book Bomb web site - the font looks terrible in Internet Explorer. Can it possibly be changed to one of the standard, if boring, web fonts like Times New Roman or Ariel, please?

Preorders are counted as sales on the release date, so they would indeed count toward RP's first-week sales.

Remember, though, just buying from one source won't get him on the NYT bestseller list, which is compiled by consulting booksellers all over the country.

Thanks for the answer.

It goes to help you max out your donation and help get the word out, that's great, and all I was looking for. :)

I prefer ordering through amazon affiliates like the site has - if amazon wants to give a share of their profits away, people might as well try to use it as much as possible. That it helps the cause is icing on the cake.

You do realize that Inflation would make the book more expensive in three months not less right?

An inflationary environment, is not normally associated with prolonging purchases. Now there maybe an opportunity cost of not having the Cash invested. although, at todays money market rates, that is a small cost.

Is it better to all buy from Amazon.com, to boost our sales ranking there, or from other booksellers, which will encourage them to order more and put it on their shelves?


I say, let it rip on Amazon today. Let's see how high we can go. We have until April to diversify. After we get finished with Amazon, I'll adjust http://www.ronpaulbookbomb.com/buy/ to load-balance between booksellers in order to diversify.

Just added it. If 8 more people add it, it should be on top. I think the tags are sorted by popularity.

Updated my tags, "president" has 8 total now, shows up on the front for me now.

Amazon's my bet! Country wide exposure. Current rank # 54! Go team! YAY!

Also, we'll reap immediate benefits right before Super Tuesday. And it will still contribute to the New York Times Bestseller status in April.

We'll see about #1...There's like 5 Oprah book club books we'd have to pass up. Actually, maybe we can prove that RP has more influence than OPRAH!

Either way for a book that's not out for another three months, we've gotten it into like Harry Potter territory with it being a pre-order and all. I remember when it was at 150,000 last night.

On April 30, the next stage of the Ron Paul Revolution begins. Ron Paul releases The Revolution: A Manifesto.

Dr. Paul's first original book in over 20 years covers all the issues of the Ron Paul Revolution: on war, sound money, terrorism, the economy, the IRS, civil liberties, the Constitution, and everything in between.

Read the preface, and get a taste of just how important and explosive this book will be.

Our goal is 30,000 pledges by Feb. 5. Let's do it! Pre-orders get a 5% discount @ Amazon.

Big thanks to Chris Brunner for putting this project together. Be sure to check out his site @ www.chrisbrunner.com

It took an hour to move up one spot, whereas the previous hours had us move up by leaps and bounds. Looks like we're entering a range of books that are tougher to compete with. We'll make it though!

If we can get it on the NYT Bestseller list, that will be golden!

I was at a friends house last night and debated a 26 year old female about politics. She was a Hillary shill to the max. I did get some facts to her, about the real world but she was still stubborn. A book like this would do wonders, as long as they are open minded.
