Description

The story of an ordinary electrical engineer who, at age 94 and dabbling in the earth sciences as an avocation, discovers an amazing and shocking truth — that time after time since the beginnings of the earth, life on earth has been periodically, virtually destroyed and has had to start over again. Such a disaster (which occurs at intervals of 15,000 to 50,000 years apart, is currently threatening the earth. The electrical engineer, Herbert Allen Boardman (HAB) tries to alert the people but he is ignored and, in desperation and to get the ear of the world, he sets out seemingly to assassinate the President of the United States — an assassination attempt deliberately meant to fail, but which puts into motion a remarkable series of events that virtually rock the world. A young writer, John Grant, becomes convinced of the validity of the HAB Theory and, though himself involved in a steamy affair and a marriage that is falling apart, becomes the hingepin upon which the story revolves as the action moves from the Oval Office of the President to a great international symposium, from the lush dwellings — and bedrooms — of the rich and famous to the humble grass shacks of African tribesmen.

Holiday Closing Alert!

Independence Day (July 4th), 2020 

(And a notice about phone calls.) 

4thJuly2020 smaller

As amazing as it is, this year, for the first time ever,  we're going to be closed for the 4th of July!

That means we're going to be closed, Friday-Monday, July 3rd, 4th and 5th, 2020.

And please, don't forget why we honor Independence Day. 

A notification about phone calls:  due to the COVID-19 plague, we've significantly increased our incoming inquiries--nearly double our usual volume--and the number of incoming inquiries by phone has been literally overwhelming.  Although most writers will say that their call "will only take 15 minutes," the truth is, that after 10 years of doing this, most author inquiry calls take an hour.  45 minutes at best. I'm currently receiving 7-10 calls/day, and due to that, I've had to stop accepting incoming phone calls, which my voicemail will tell you. You can leave a message--I can't call you back without one--and if a call is needed, I will of course call you.  But we have very complete and extensive email replies, handouts and our website is very informative. Almost all the questions that I receive during a call are actually already answered on our site, or are, in fact, publishing questions, not questions about our services, what we do, what we offer, or the like.  I already handle between 90-130 emails/day, as it is. I can't handle that many emails and take 7-10 hours of calls each day. I can't. So, in order to be able to answer this huge email volume, to help the greatest number of people, with my time, I've had to stop accepting calls.  I'm sorry, but that's just how it is. I'm in the process of setting up a call-appointment function, for free 15-minute calls to answer questions from new prospective customers and longer paid sessions for folks who generally want consulting on "publishing," generally (and for prospective kids' book publishers, as a special category of paid consulting).  But that functionality isn't yet set up. I hope to get that working the week of the 5th July, sometime.  

Thank you for your understanding.
