San Diego, CA – Veterans Publishing, Inc. (VPI) announces the launch of a Generosity Crowdfunding campaign to support the launch of a new website dedicated to helping veterans and their families publish or sell books and artisan creations via www.veterans.pub. VPI is a subsidiary of the Us4Warriors Foundation—honored as San Diego County’s Veterans Non-Profit of the Year for 2016. VPI board members include W. Craig Reed (New York Times bestselling author), Grant Blackwood (#1 New York Times bestselling author of Tom Clancy and Clive Cussler novels), James Rollins (#1 New York Times bestselling author), Bob Mayer (New York Times bestselling author), Don Metzger (C-level business executive), Jeff Jones (senior marketing executive and retired Navy SEAL), and Ken Greenawald (Us4Warriors board member and submarine veteran).
“Think of Veterans Publishing as a small Amazon.com that offers books and products created exclusively by veterans and their families,” said W. (Bill) Craig Reed, CEO of VPI. “When you buy a book on Amazon you make Jeff Bezos rich. When you buy a book on VPI, for about the same price, you help veterans and their families share their talents with the world, support themselves, and in many cases, avoid becoming homeless.”
A majority of the profits generated by VPI will help fund the Us4Warriors Foundation (www.us4warriors.org) in a similar fashion to how the Firefox web browser helps fund the non-profit Mozilla Foundation. To provide the needed funding to ensure VPI can fulfill its mission, a crowdfunding campaign via Indiegogo’s Generosity site will go live on August 19, 2017. Along with dozens of unique offerings, the crowdfunding campaign will feature a new book from author W. Craig Reed titled The 7 Secrets of Neuron Leadership (published by Wiley & Sons) to encourage crowdfunding pledges. The book features a Foreword by Gordon England, former Deputy Secretary of Defense and interviews with a former NASA head, Secretary of the Navy, San Diego Girls Scouts CEO, 3-star Generals, Navy SEAL officers, CEOs, and several world leaders.
“There are 114 million veterans, active military, and relatives in the United States,” said Anthony Stewart, navy veteran and CEO of the Us4Warriors Foundation. “Many of them struggle to make ends meet and have unique books and creations they can offer, but it’s almost impossible to get published or market their offerings. VPI is dedicated to giving them help and hope.”
The VPI website is now live at www.veterans.pub where anyone can browse for interesting books, artisan creations, and services offered exclusively by veterans and their families. For example, veterans Will C. and Erik Knowles are world-renowned comedians and television actors who offer discounted engagements on the site. Details about the Generosity crowdfunding campaign can be found on this site.
