You know Poe’s Law: “without a clear indicator of the author’s intent, every parody of extreme views can be mistaken by some readers for a sincere expression of the views being parodied.“
You may have heard of Brandolini’s Law: “The amount of energy needed to refute bullshit is an order of magnitude larger than to produce it.“
You probably have heard Godwin’s Law: “As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches one.”
You may even have heard of Sturgeon’s Law: “90% of everything is crap.“
Well it’s now time to formally recognize Correia’s Law: “Internet arguing is a spectator sport. You argue to convince the undecided and give ammo to those on your side. Do not expect to change your opponent’s mind as you cannot sway the willfully ignorant. Internet arguing is only worth it when there is an audience. The contestants do not get a vote, the audience decides who wins.“
What’s the secret to writing nonfiction that sells? How long does it take compared to fiction? While nonfiction is not their usual subject, this week our hosts/authors Steve Diamond and Larry Correia tap into their personal experiences to discuss this oft overlooked section of publishing and discuss some of the pros and cons.

Cassandra Blake, an employee for the Ascension Planetary Holdings Group—the largest and most powerful corporation in Nova Columbia—has gone missing. And her sister wants to know why. When questions need answering on Nova Columbia, Detective Ezekiel “Easy” Novak is the man folks turn to. He gets results—one way or another.
But what begins as a routine missing person case quickly turns into something much bigger and more sinister, with implications that could affect the entire planet. It seems Cassandra wasn’t just investigating her employer. She had uncovered a secret effort to excavate and exploit an ancient alien artifact known only as The Seraph.
Soon, Easy finds himself trying to unravel a conspiracy that may implicate not only Ascension, but the cultlike Cosmic Ontological Foundation—and the highest echelons of the Terran Confederation itself.

There were so many pre orders in that first day that Amazon added it to their promotional emails and put a BIG discount on the hard cover. And good news, if you’ve already pre ordered they will automatically adjust it to the new lower price.
It has hit some pretty crazy numbers so far- #123 on all of Amazon #289 in Kindle #13 in Non-fiction #4 in Politics #1 in a whole bunch of different genres like Political Freedom, Ideologies & Doctrine, Federal Government, United States Government, Political Conservatism & Liberalism, etc. And in many of those, the book was at #1 while the Kindle was at #2.
So now is a great time to order some extra on sale hard covers for your friends, relatives, and all the fence sitters in your life. 🙂 Please tell, your friends. Preorders are super helpful and ensure a successful book launch. I’m hoping this one can actual move the needle with some people.
Sadly, when a new political book blows up like this you get a bunch of rip off scam artists trying to capitalize on it. The first one is real, and rest are scumbag grifters.
That is pretty amazing that they’re already done extensive analysis and reviews of a book that only me and the editors have read so far.
I have had several gun store owners contact me about buying bulk copies to sell in their shops. If you are interested leave a comment and I will give you the information for how to order direct from the publisher. They do discounts by the case.
This is a subject I’ve been studying for about thirty years now. I’m a gun guy. My entire life I’ve been “gun culture”. I worked in the gun business, I was a firearms instructor, I was a competitor, and I’ve written some of the most viral blog posts about gun rights there are.
Things like my Opinion On Gun Control were the basis for this project. In that vein it is intended to give ammo to people who are already on my side of the debate, and also to sway the undecided. This is the book to pass on to the fence sitters, where I try to make the case that the 2nd Amendment is for all of us, and absolutely vital.
The 2nd Amendment is under assault. Congress just passed another idiotic gun ban, and now it is off to the senate. There is no topic that Americans are more passionate yet ignorant about. I’d like to help fix that.
EDIT: The preorder went live last night. Currently the hard cover is sitting at #175 on all of Amazon, and the ebook is #715 in the entire Kindle store. That is astounding for a book that doesn’t come out for 5 months.
EDIT 2: Last night the book got to some pretty amazing heights. #123 on all of Amazon #289 in Kindle #13 in Non-fiction #4 in Politics #1 in a whole bunch of different genres like Political Freedom, Ideologies & Doctrine, Federal Government, United States Government, Political Conservatism & Liberalism, etc. And in many of those, the book was at #1 while the Kindle was at #2.
