FSC custom book project helps fund first responders and prepare communities

February 16, 2017

fsc-logoSince 1999 we (Bill and Janet Liebsch) have worked with city, county, state and federal agencies, businesses, nonprofits and others across North America providing our custom It’s A Disaster! books in bulk for their respective communities.

And, for the past few years, we’ve been offering our revenue sharing ideas associated with the larger custom book option (i.e. adding 48 to 288+ extra pages for advertisements, etc.)

Many clients want to do large custom book projects for their communities, but more often than not, coordinators are too busy to take on this type of project … or, in some cases, they aren’t allowed to ~ esp. agency coordinators.

So … we recently formed a new consulting company called Fedhealth Services Corp to help facilitate and manage custom book projects that will benefit local emergency management and first responder agencies, nonprofits, businesses and the general public at large.

FSC can help your community

Basically any agency, CERT, MRC, VOAD, nonprofit or other contact can provide FSC some key contacts in their community (e.g. Chambers, Rotary Clubs, Kiwanis, LEPC chairs, EM coordinators, etc.), and we can reach out to them on that coordinator’s behalf and help manage a bulk custom book deal.

disaster_books_gi-4x2FSC can work directly with Chambers, Rotary Clubs or other business groups encouraging members to place ads inside books for pennies on the dollar. The goal is to offer discounts and freebies to local residents helping them save money year round.

The money raised can purchase custom books PLUS we will share revenue back with Chambers and other business groups / partners, local first responders and project coordinators.

We can also work with local emergency and city/county officials to ensure their preparedness messages, plans and other data for residents and businesses are included in custom books.

For example, let’s say a small city or county wants 5,000 customized books using 250 pages for coupons and discounts for the public + 50 pages for local emergency information wrapped around our 266-page disaster preparedness and first aid manual.

And the coordinator refers FSC to a local Chamber and their members pay only 16 cents per page (less than a postcard) for a color ad on glossy paper.

That means the total cost to advertisers would be $800 for a full page color ad (or $400 for 1/2 pg, $200 for 1/4 pg, or only $100 for 1/8 pg ad) that appears in all 5,000 books. Plus the Chamber (and others) will make money for helping put this deal together!

In other words… 5,000 books with 250 pages of color ads @ $0.16 per page could generate:

Benefits for Chambers and other partners

Chambers and other business groups who work with FSC on a custom book project can…

  • Earn revenue back from members’ ad purchases = new profit center;
  • Brand book project as a Chamber (or Rotary, etc.) sponsored whole community preparedness savings program;
  • Help fund your local first responders and emergency managers;
  • Promote Chamber (or Rotary Club, etc.) on a free page or 2 in book;
  • Recruit new members by offering a discount on annual dues if they purchase an ad;
  • Encourage members to offer discounts and freebies on day-to-day products and services;
  • Generate excitement in the community since people will save so much money they will want a new book every year;
  • Become a hero to your members for being involved in something so beneficial to the community and so affordable ~ especially since books and ads stay in front of people year-round. And, by offering extremely discounted ad rates as shown above, it allows all sizes of businesses to participate.

FSC can structure projects and donations back to the various groups in whatever manner works best for each community and partner.

It’s a true Whole Community public-private partnership program that generously funds nonprofits, agencies, volunteer groups, civic clubs and others while helping our nation become more prepared and resilient.

Note: FSC will donate a portion of all proceeds to the U.S. First Responders Association.

Primal Diety III – Containment now on Amazon

February 9, 2017

amazon_kindle-pd3-coverWe’ve had the privilege of publishing our dear friend and colleague’s action packed series about the free spirited, hot­headed and very sexy FBI Special Agent Alex Southerland, and now — Fedhealth Fiction is proud to announce Primal Deity 3 – Containment by Allen Ozark is available in paperback and on Kindle

This fast-paced crime thriller picks up right at the end of book two after Alex, a former Naval Intelligence Officer, is forced to accept a clandestine mission from the White House. On her one-woman man hunt for a notorious domestic terrorist, Alex does her best to choose the wrong that’s more right, but makes it hard for even her long-time friend and boss to overlook her shortcomings.

With her heart in the wrong place at the right time, Alex finds love and loss are just as closely related as ever before in her world. Despite all her planning, her deception, lies, patience and best efforts, she soon realizes she cannot win this deadly game of cat and mouse. All of Alex’s bad decisions are catching up with her and danger is close, but it’s too late to turn back now. Her desperate attempt to win back her freedom takes a terrible turn, twisting a simple operation into a complicated quest for the truth; one which unravels a government conspiracy that leads all the way to the upper echelon of Washington, D.C.

Alex’s luck has finally run out, she’s charged with treason, and all she can do is wait in torment for a long, lonely walk to the death chamber.

allenozarkAuthor Allen Ozark primarily writes fiction thrillers, but has titles in lighter genres as well, including science fiction and romantic comedy.

When asked how the Primal Deity series came about, Ozark responded, “This whole thing started years back when I wrote Containment, which turned out to be the 3rd book in the series.

Then I went back and wrote the first book, The Chaos Engine, originally entitled, Death Peddler. After that, I wrote book 2, Crisis Management (one of my personal favorites), and then books 4 and 5, Early Detection and One Federal Parkway.

When I started writing the series, I suspected readers would either love Alex or completely hate her. However, after the first two books were published, I discovered readers love Alex all the way even when they absolutely hate what she does. They’ve connected with her in a unique way and seem to have a genuine concern for what happens to her and the people she loves.

pd-the-seriesOne of the reasons I love the series is we’ve got a main character that, even with her hot temper and all her many flaws, she is 100% real and you connect with her right off the bat. With Alex, there’s a lot she’s dealing with in her life you can identify with whether you’re a biracial child, a smart lady in a male dominated workplace, or you’re trying to balance a rocky personal life with a demanding career. Now I can tell you she doesn’t always do the right thing–frankly, sometimes she makes extremely bad decisions–but, she has a big heart and a good soul.”
