Richard Saunders's latest update for Journey, A Short Story -  Volume 1

Greetings fellow Inksharians!

Something extraordinary happened this week that relates to my book!

 Way back in 1994, I targeted the very popular Governor of Massachusetts (William Weld) in one of my "method-writing" sting operations. That story is prominently featured in my book. 

Mr. Weld has been largely out of the public spotlight for two decades, until a few days ago, when seemingly out of nowhere, he generated national headlines and is sure to continue to be in the news at least until November.  

It is an INCREDIBLE coincidence that TWO of the major targets I conducted "method-writing" sting operations against (and featured in my book, SecretAgentMan) are now running for the Top Two political offices in the United States of America!

Here is a letter I sent to the big-wigs at Inkshares on Thursday.

Re: Trump & Weld

Today the Libertarian Party will announce that former Massachusetts Governor William Weld has accepted the Vice President slot on Gary Johnson’s ticket. Their nominating convention will be held on Memorial Day.

Re: Trump & Weld

Today the Libertarian Party will announce that former Massachusetts Governor William Weld has accepted the Vice President slot on Gary Johnson’s ticket. Their nominating convention will be held on Memorial Day.

It is an incredible coincidence that TWO of my prominent "method-writing" targets are running for the highest offices in the nation at the same time, and that this happened shortly after the release of my book!

I have engaged in Real-Life epic battles (sting operations) with BOTH of these high profile individuals (Donald Trump & Bill Weld). Those stories are contained in my Inkshares novel. Other than changing the names to Daniel Trask and William Wilde, these stories are 100% true and I have proof to back up the claims.

Given that the presumptive nominees of both major parties have very high negative ratings, a third party challenge will receive more press than usual this year.Many GOP big wigs have been talking about finding a third party candidate themselves, but the fact is that ONLY the Libertarian Party is set up and qualified to be on the ballot in all fifty states.

There is not enough time for any other prominent  third party challenge to materialize.  

A large portion of the electorate finds both Clinton and Trump to be unacceptable, so it is natural that the Libertarians will get more attention this time than they normally do. Add this to all of the other documented real-life connections (Dan Brown, Columbine Memorial etc.) in my book and it is easy to see that Journey / SecretAgentMan has lots of potential to break out if given the right publicity pitch and push.

Book buyers don’t want to hear an author hype his book - (and most authors, including myself, don’t want to). Credibility only comes from others (real influencers) recognizing the potential and publicizing it, creating word of mouth viral exposure.I was counting on Inkshares to be the conduit for this. It could still happen.

Kind regards,

Richard Saunders
