A Janetorial for your consideration

I've been in communication with a woman named Janet who is the new Director of Marketing for my book publisher. We've been discussing various marketing opportunities for The Simplicity Primer including the possibility of attending a Preparedness conference in Dallas (since there is a lot of crossover with Preppers and simplifying). She had a most flattering paragraph in one of her emails that I begged permission to post here. She chuckled when I asked permission and told me how a friend dubbed her rants "Janetorials," a play on her name.

Ready?

I luv your book! The heck with the preppers and survivalists, I need to give all of my ‘city slicker fast pace of life to the point of insanity’ friends here in DC a copy! Truly I was so motivated that this past weekend I sorted through closets and came up with 2 enormous Hefty bags (the ones you put leaves in….got them at some promotion, as I live on the 13 floor…no leaves up here!) filled with about 100 articles of clothing to be dropped off at Goodwill! And I organized closets so clothing now color coded! The office, on the other hand…tackled more slowly…but DID also toss about 50lbs of old files.

  2. Man,oh man! I think that is a great compliment and a great 'promo' quote! It makes me HAVE to go buy your book and go clean my closet. I have a sign on my 'frig that says, 'Less Stuff, More Life!'

  3. Fyi--- Amazon.com still has your name wrong. You would think they would help you by getting this small detail corrected. To them you are 'Lewis Patrice.'

  4. That's awesome. I'm slowly working through all of our closets and nightstands and dressers and desks. We've lived in our house for almost 6 years and we still have a few boxes tucked up on closet shelves that haven't been unpacked. No more!

  5. Okay, Patrice! I want you to grab Enola and bring her and yourself down here to Texas to the Survivalist Conference. I want to see you both set up at a booth selling your books, tankards and Enola's female products! Who knows, you might go home rich(er)!

    Besides, summer has sprung here in Texas. It's 88 degrees in the shade on my porch! You can thaw out good down here! LOL!

    In all honesty, the Survival Conference will be a big boon for you. These things are attended by folks who read WND, SurvivalBlog and probably your blog and Enola's, as well! We attended the last Preparedness Expo that was held in the Metroplex before Y2K and you couldn't stir all the people with a stick!

    Anyway, give it some serious thought.

  6. The conference sounds like a good idea - However - you'd be preaching to the choir....not that the choir wouldn't buy it, they would just so they could pass it along to the "non believers" they encounter....but they already believe in your book's theme.....

    She's right, you need to wade into the masses of city people....it's just a tougher sell, making them realize they desperately need it.......but they do need this book more.....
