[PUBLISHING] Announcing "A GENERAL HISTORY OF THE PIRATES"

We are incredibly excited to finally be able to announce a project that has occupied many months here at WordMean Publishing. The all new, amended and  revised "A General History of the Pirates" which covered the earliest and most reliable biographical accounts of Blackbeard, Charles Vane, Jack Rackham and Bartholomew Roberts (to name just a few)

It's the most influential work in its field and it has helped shape our knowledge of piracy and the popular culture that has stemmed from the Golden Age. 
Though the original work is in the public domain and freely available, it's a difficult piece of work to read with several formatting issues and complicated almost biblical old-English spelling and grammar,  we have dissected the original first edition and resurrected the book for today's enthusiasts.

With additional galleries, historical records, archaeological discoveries and more: the new book will expand the old for the 21st century.

We also have plans to release the book in large print and will be offering discounts for educational institutions.
 
 First published in the 1700’s and documenting the most important biographies ever to inspire the outlooks of The Golden Age of Piracy, Captain Charles Johnson’s A GENERAL HISTORY OF THE PIRATES remains the most significant work in piracy research.

The 17th-century early-modern English text has been reproduced in an easier-to-read way – though still completely accurate and true to the original – with extra galleries and information as well as additional content like sea shanties and historical discoveries.

Reconstructed from our first edition copy; we’ve paid attention to the detail and restructured the book the way it deserves to be. This is one of the most important pieces of non-fiction to have ever graced the Earth – and we wanted to resurrect it!

Though attributed to a mysterious author known as Captain Charles Johnson, A GENERAL HISTORY carries its own cunningness with the author often attributed as a potential pseudonym of Robinson Crusoe writer Daniel Defoe.

PUBLISHING: Dr Karla Turner's "Into the Fringe" Released



Following on from our reissuing of "TAKEN", we are delighted to announce that Dr Karla Turner's first work "INTO THE FRINGE: A TRUE STORY OF ALIEN ABDUCTION" will be released as a physical book and eBook.
We have seen the reviews and have appreciated the support for the re-working of these books and it is of our understanding that some people would like to see the hardcover version released. We are looking into eventually having all three books released in a combined set with exclusive inputs, stories and contributions from readers who have admired her work or experienced similar events.
If you’d like to be featured in this potential release; please contact us at publishing@wordswithmeaning.org for more information and to submit your words.

At this point in time, we do not have any immediate plans to reissue Karla Turner’s third book “Masquerade of Angels” as her family have remaining stock of the original. You can contact us should you wish to secure yourself a copy and we will forward it on to the right person.
Thanks everybody for your support. The book will be available on Amazon as well as directly from our store at publishing.wordswithmeaning.org

WordMean Launches Kickstarter Campaign

Help expand WordswithMeaning.org into further avenues.



WordMean has launched a Kickstarter project to help us focus on empowering the non-mainstream media and push for community-powered news and publications WITHOUT the backing of governments, corporations or conflicts of interest. Un-interfered News!
We are a news media website with ambition. We cover important stories and we are centre-left but without the "everything should be banned" and "we might offend people" mentality. We need to grow and become a proper organisation. Helping us become more than just a website will open up several doors for our authors, editors, readers and YOU! Help us gain exposure and challenge (as well as trivialise) the mainstream media by entering their league and offering an alternative to their business ventures.

The endgame and ultimate goal here is to help us step up from the internet and become a publication in more than one media. Whether it be book publishing, films, discussion centres or radio stations: we are counting on YOU, THE CONTRIBUTOR to have the news your way without the corporate backing you experience throughout the world's media.

We don’t charge for content and we never plan on it. In a day and age with low incomes from advertisers and plenty of moments where we haven’t broken even, now’s the time to help support the future of WordswithMeaning!

This project will only be funded if at least $5,000 is pledged by .
