Default Welcome To Hell - Official Release



Well guys, the book officially releases today. Love me or hate me and whether or not you have ANY interest in the book, please take a minute to read the following because its a rare moment of sincerity from me and, in my opinion, extremely important to Americans across the nation:

Quote:
Why? Because this has a greater purpose… Because this isn’t just a memoir book with MY life stories in it. It’s a shared message for people who deserve to have their story told. A chance for people to take a moment and gain more perspective on what some choose to sacrifice for their and our great nation’s behalf. Instead of whining about priorities, it’s a chance to take recognition and say, “You gave a career to the Kardashians for a sex-tape, but how many of you even know the name Dakota Meyer?” Instead of second-by-second updates of the Twilight split, that’s the real story people should know. One with substance, sacrifice, and unimaginable heights of heroism. Here’s a guy who asked the Oval Office staff to call back on his lunch break because he was busy working when they called to inform him he was receiving our nation’s highest honor, the Medal of Honor. Even more than the message, we have the opportunity to make a real difference for people who need it the most. One interview and book at a time, we’re raising money and awareness for the Children of Fallen Patriots and I’d be hard pressed to imagine a more purposeful cause.
(more at http://patrickturley.org/)

Big thanks to the OM in supporting and playing a good role in the book selling out before it even officially released. That's something I'm extremely proud of. And if you aren’t interested, that’s fine. But at least consider the message and looking into helping the Children of Fallen Patriots. Let’s move deeper into an election year with a more prioritized nation.

There are purchase links all over the right hand side of my website and it's now in bookstores everywhere.

Links to a few completed interviews:

Jake Pentland Show (Aug 11 in the On Demand tab) http://www.unscriptedradio.com/listen/

If you firmly share my message, then please help spread the word through social media or carrying the book around, but really, thanks again to everyone for a minute of your time regardless of what you take away from this.

haha no **** that, we're a community and spend way too much time with each other (if only virtually), if you can afford the book, we should support our own.

Patrick, I'm going to purchase this book next week hopefully if my local Books A Million has it. If not, I'll get it either way. I served in the Army for 4 years from 93-97 so I can't wait to read what you have to say in your book. I'm going to PM you a request though.

Ack. Sucks.

The one here has a display and I've heard the Oceanside and a fewother Cali ones do so I was hoping they all did.

Oh well. Thanks.

More than likely the NEXT one will be a book called "Heaven's Requiem" comprised of two different novellas: "The Book of Lucifer: Lord of the Morning" and "The Book of Asher: Rise of the Avatar"

But I also have a rotating perspective mystery I'm finishing up called "Of Blood and Money" so that MAY get signed first.

We'll see... quite frankly I'm trying to push this one for the charity before I worry about any of those.

Maybe you shouldn't.

Unless they've removed EVERY other book from the store, I'm going to be disappointed haha.

I demand a byline. I'll write from the perspective of Reek. I haven't quite figured out the angle, but I think you'll agree that I've given myself a broad palette to work from here.

Btw guys, if you REALLY wanna help, post one of the following to your social media platform (depending on the audience. A is vulgar, B is emotional)

A:
"You're friggin' nasty, Bequet. Why didn't your mother stop feeding your fat, ugly ass?"
"This recruit's mother is dead, sir!"
Drill Instructor Staff Sergeant McFadden paused and gave him a nod. He turned to leave, but then looked back at Bequet. "So that's why she barely moved when I ****ed her."

http://www.amazon.com/Welcome-Hell-T...patrick+turley

Or in book stores everywhere


B:

For the past few years, I had become emotionless, never letting my own feelings touch me or cloud my thinking. As I crossed the room, in what seemed like slow motion, with my family sobbing violently behind me at the vision of my dead father, the dam broke. I found myself in the corner, sunken down to my knees, and for the first time in years, tears streamed uninhibited down my face. It wasn't the sight of my father or anything about the environment that brought on my hysteria. It was reality. It was knowing, now, he was gone. It was accepting that life, as I knew it, was over... forever.
