Ya I'm sure the CIA leaves this stuff laying around on shelves in unlocked boxes.. I'm sure this has nothing to do with promoting his new book..


This is what he said:

"It was a vaulted area and not everybody could get in it," Brandon told The Huffington Post. "One day, I was looking around in there and reading some of the titles that were mostly hand-scribbled summations of what was in the boxes. And there was one box that really caught my eye. It had one word on it: Roswell."



Now I have also been in underground vaults looking for information of various kinds, and I could look through the boxes since I had the right kind of ID.  There must have been tens of thousands of boxes of all kinds of classified stuff sitting on the shelves there, just stored away in the same files that had been packed in the boxes long before.  A lot of that stuff was just long-forgotten and no one had ever looked at it again but me.


These were very large vaults, too, behind heavy steal doors, but I was allowed to look through the things I wanted.  A lot of the time, I knew more about the subject and the right locations to find the files than the people in charge of the vaults.

I'd like to tell you that I would go down there just to look up all the old Top Secret UFO files--which do indeed exist by the way--but I was working on other things.

I can only imagine the millions and billions of documents around Washington that are still gathering dust in underground vaults, with no one paying the slightest attention to them any more.

Publishing a book is the fastest way to be discredited. Only those looking to make a fast buck publish books.

It must be the same in most other countries too.  It's odd that no other country has had a leader who just thought, "what the heck, I'll put it out there for everyone to see".

How a Book Gets Published

For a first time author, a book generally starts with a completely finished and polished manuscript for fiction and memoirs, and a proposal and sample pages for nonfiction. Yes, novelists: you have to write the whole thing. Published authors can sometimes sell novels on proposal.

It's then generally advisable for an unpublished author to find a literary agent. Very few publishers these days accept submissions from unagented authors and a good agent can give a project a better chance at succeeding and will usually be able to negotiate a better deal than the author would be able to achieve on their own.

Once an agent has taken on a project they then send it to one or more editors at different publishing houses. The agent will specifically target the submission to the editors that they feel are most appropriate for the book. The editors take a look at the project, and if it's something they are interested in they will share it with their colleagues and boss(es) to gauge the enthusiasm. Once the editor has the go-ahead to move forward with the project they will send the agent an offer.

The submission process can take anywhere from a week to a year or more depending on when/if the agent finds a match for the project.

An offer usually includes an advance, royalties, territory, and other specific terms (please see my publishing glossary for definitions). Sometimes the offer will be for one book or sometimes it will be for multiple books. If more than one editor is interested there may be an auction to determine which publisher will make the best offer.

When the deal points have been agreed upon and the author accepts an offer the publisher will send a contract, which the agent or the agency's contracts director will negotiate.

After the contract has been signed, if the project was sold on proposal it's then time for the author to write the book.

Once the manuscript is completed (nonfiction) or after the contract is signed (fiction) the editor will usually send an editorial letter suggesting content changes that the author will then make. These changes are somewhat negotiable, but for the most part authors will follow their editor's suggestions.

When the changes have been made and the manuscript is deemed editorially acceptable it moves to copyediting, where typos and other errors are corrected, and designed as it will look on the page. The author has to review the different versions of the completed manuscript to catch typos. The publisher is also working during this time on the design of the book, including the cover, trim size, paper type, and other design-y considerations.

Meanwhile, the editor is coordinating with their marketing and sales teams to write copy for the publisher's seasonal catalog, write the jacket copy, to (hopefully) generate enthusiasm among the sales team for the project, and to help shape marketing plans. Several months before the book's publication the sales team will be coordinating with bookstore buyers and other "accounts" as they place their orders, which helps determine how many copies of the book the publisher prints. The agent usually keeps tabs on this process to make sure everything is happening according to plan.

The publication process from finished manuscript to in-bookstore books usually takes a year or more. It can occasionally be compressed if it is an especially timely project, but the process usually requires quite a bit of lead time.

When publication date arrives the book goes on sale and the author is rich and famous behind their wildest dreams. Sometimes. Not usually.

The author then gets cracking on their next book (or rather, they should already have been cracking), and the process repeats.

The end!

Sounds pretty easy, quick and fruitful to me. I'm sure he'll give 'Fifty Shades of Grey' a run for it's money.

Am I the only one that realises UFOs first appeared in Nazi Germany, they practiced eugenics and then a couple years after the war ended we have little green men crashing in a flying saucer?

We come in peace !

To get access to Top Secret material, you have to have a 'need to know' AND you have to sign a log for each item you access. I know, I've done it. This business with guys tooling around the vault and casually peeking in the odd box is just nonsense.

I've done it, and have signed plenty of logs, too, but I have also tooled around in plenty of vaults and looked through plenty of boxes, especially when I'm the only one who knows what I'm looking for and where it might be.

I've been in large, underground vaults that were built to withstand nuclear blasts, but there's a lot of classified stuff that has been filed away and forgotten, with few people even looking at it.  I know because I've seen more of it than I can remember.

I saw a comment going "Nazi invented the jet" - Wrong, British engineers invented the jet engine and when they were told "It's too experimental" they went to USA to trade research, the British gave over their research.... Then were blocked entry into USA, and escorted back to their transport. Then USA worked on it, eventually breaking Mach 1. If they had just been fair and given their research to the British, jet engine powered fighters would of been fighting in the Second World War, but, this is America, who then stole and patented penicillin, and for the next 60 years, every pill British citizens and the rest of the world took, money went to them. This is nothing new, USA usually steals technology, that's not 'bad' as it's served them for so well for so long.

Just irked me that comment.

Moving on, there is pretty much little way somebody can get information across, without it finding it's way back to them. Release a PDF with proof and you'll be discovered in no time. Those who are legit and do have information believe book selling is the safe way.... As in, if it's let through, then it's the governments fault, not theirs and they can't be picked up on it. Furthermore, hidden messages and legit information probably are in books but are ignored.

On the other hand, they are profiting from it, so that is always a big negative on "is it legit?". Roswell is the perfect case, nobody can prove it's legit and nobody can prove it isn't. Sure there are people on both sides with slightly more credibility than others....

Oh well.

Theres going to be excitement and hysteria as the date approaches!

My advice is keep away from large towns and cities as they'll be the first to be vapourised.
