An incredible opportunity to spread the circulation of Hamilton Versus Wall Street has come up, and I need your help to do it.
From May 29-31, the largest annual book trade fair in the United States, Book Expo America, is occurring in New York City. I have an offer from one of its exhibitors, Authors Press, to promote my book at this event. They will set up a book display, organize a book signing, produce an 6-7 minute video, deploy 3 to 5 sales people at the event to sell the book, and circulate a press release through social media. They will also market the book in their physical bookstore for a month after the event.
The cost? $3500. That’s the same amount it would cost me if I contracted for a 5’ x 10’ booth directly with Book Expo, with none of the perks.
The bottom line is that this is a unique opportunity to get high visibility for the book and its ideas, and hopefully get it into bookstores and libraries around the country. It can kick-start the process of a real education on what the American System is all about.
Just imagine if we could get a vigorous public political discussion going about funding a $4 trillion National Infrastructure Bank using Hamiltonian methods! I put the proposal in the book so that this could happen.
The problem is, I don’t have the money. Ed and I have already laid out over $2000 to get the book published, and we can’t afford to put out thousands more. So I’m asking for your help.
As many of you know, I wrote Hamilton Versus Wall Street now because I felt there was not only a great opportunity, given the success of the musical, but because Hamilton and the American System are so crucial to getting this country out of the mess it’s in now. The reception among some Hamilton promoters, and some industry reviewers has been extremely positive. But it takes a lot of advertising to get a book to take off.
I need to get a flow of funds immediately, in order to pin down the plans. Please help me educate America on Hamilton. Send me to New York!

Where is the link to click, so that one can contribute to your GoFundMe? If it’s in the email I got, I couldn’t find it, and similarly on the page with the post! This needs to be fixed right away!
And, you should have a “call to action” in the post. Something like, “So, please click HERE and contribute the most you possibly can!”. You have to explicitly tell people what you’re asking them to do.
You click on the “view campaign” at the top. It takes you to the page. You don’t have to tip, but you have to put a 0 in there in order not to.
How do I contribute? It’s not clear how. I would like to!
You click on “view campaign” at the top and it takes you to the page. It tries to get you to give a tip, but you don’t have to, if you put a 0 in there.
I fixed it by putting the link at the bottom. When you get to the page, you hit view campaign, and you’ll see how to do it.
We’re fixing it. Come back in a few minutes — it should have a link to the GoFundMe page.
Nancy – send me Ur address.
Email has been sent, Roger. Thanks. Hope you can do it soon to get some momentum.
