One Response to Hart Williams

  1. Hart,

    Sometimes something is so unique, so compelling, you’re glad you at least gave it a look.

    The book I recently published (SLOP – The Wild Boar Nation) tells a tale of the dangers when a small minority is hellbent on imposing their will on the rest of society, despite the warnings by the majority of the intentional consequences and even more dire potential unintended consequences of their actions. In this case, I use wild boars to personify a radical faction gone mad as they declare equality with man – due to drought and dwindling lands. Of course the story is based in Texas.

    “I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down upon us. Pigs treat us as equals.” – Sir Winston Churchill

    The novel delves into a variety of social, economic, religious and geopolitical issues. It is informative, creative, controversial and without a doubt highly entertaining. The objectives are:

    1. Soften the hard edges of a radical right wing
    2. Remind the far left we are not all equals – That the majority seek equal opportunities, not equal outcomes
    3. Ease the minds of those in the middle; the vast majority, that change can be good and we need to continue to evolve

    I’ve self-published for many reasons. I’ve sold 92 books so far, given away another 100 or so. Between Amazon, Apple and my website, there are over 20 reviews now. I expect that to increase significantly in coming days as people begin to read the book. In time, don’t be shocked the story goes viral. If you do your research, you’ll understand why – the timing of the book and it’s story-lines support this belief. Will you be the one who broke the story? One of your colleagues? Or another site? Trust your instincts. The book is good. Real good.

    I appreciate your time,
