Welcome

* Note: For Farrah Chronicles, Freeman services were solely confined to initial preparation for upload on Createspace and cover art work (no editing). For Libertarian Lessons of South Park, only a light copyedit for a second revision.

We also have pioneered an exciting new Web-enabled medium called  ‘storygraph’—a collage-like single-sheet or scroll representation, directionally embedding images and text boxes to tell your unique human story (life, learning, family, family business, career, hobby, workflow, technical descriptions, etc.). Check out our storygraph product-service here.

The Publishing Arrangement

The author pays Freeman a nominal agreed-upon hourly rate for any editing, formatting, word processing, and posting to the online POD publisher with whom the author establishes an account. The author retains copyright and maintains responsibility for book pricing, distribution, and so forth with the publisher. Details of the publishing procedure are set forth on this page entitled The Process.

The same basic ‘Rockford Files’ contract [$200 a day ($25 per hour) plus expenses] applies to storygraph construction, as shown on The Storygraph page.  Also, in terms of copyright, the client retains ownership and control of all deliverables, with Free Man serving a support function. The base rate is negotiable during these early days of business development and we have provided substantial discounts to early adopters in Spring 2014.

    Do you want to co-author my book? SOME UNKNOWN HISTORY OF THE U.S. – a work in progress
    http://groups.yahoo.com/group/SomeUnknownUSHistory/messages

    I am a better researcher than a writer and I don’t want to pay any money to get it publish. I am not in to this book to make money, so you tell me what you think is a fair agreement in sharing any profit from publishing it. I have it online for free now. I have written maybe 3,000 pages and most likely the book would have to be published in a series of books.

    Learn about the crimes of the CIA and US war crimes, Department of Justice- cover-up of drug trafficking, etc You should skip the CIA Table of Organization that I put at the beginning of each chapter to find the written history.

    Why We Need a New Congressional Investigation of 9/11
    A summary of the irrefutable evidence that the World Trade Center buildings collapsed due to explosions, not fire – 82 pages see: I had to post this in 7 or 8 page sections

    Brian, I just discovered your fine review of “What about gods?” Thank you for that! t was great to remember the good old days in Michigan. I think you will interested to know of the just published followup –finally–to “What about gods?” Info follows. I would be glad to send you a review copy if you let me know an address. My email address is cbrockman1@nc.rr.com

    “What to Think About: Philosophy for a Thoughtful Younger Generation,” by Chris Brockman is up on Amazon. Brockman uses his own definition of philosophy as a “systematic study of who I am, what’s out there, and what should I do about it,“ to arrive at suggestions for things to think about. Each chapter ends with scenarios and questions challenging the reader to think. This book is “written from a humanist perspective,” and may offend some religious sensibilities. It is recommended for young adults. Chris Brockman is the author of the classic of religious skepticism for children “What about gods?”
