After receiving a sample of the Fan Guide to Destination Truth to make sure the rest of the copies going out didn't have severe issues, I also recalled that one of the first people to buy the book had asked if there was any possible way to get the book by a certain date, so that she could get it signed by Josh Gates at a fan event going on in May. True to my word, I spent a little extra than the rest of the books would have cost to ship to make sure she got it in time. Imagine our dismay when Josh had to cancel going to that event a couple of days beforehand!
Nevertheless, fellow fan Maggie Berta was nice enough to submit this review of the book for you guys, and if you're convinced, get a copy on Amazon or Kindle HERE:
When I saw that our fearless fan leader Amanda Rosenblatt was writing a Fan Guide to Destination Truth, I couldn’t wait to purchase it and read it as soon as possible. I have been a fan of Josh Gates for almost 10 years. After reading it, I was thrilled. If you’re like me, you will read the Foreword written by Josh Gates in his signature “Josh Gates style” (hearing his voice in your mind).
Each Chapter reads like a fan chronology, recapping the episode and adding extra tidbits and fun you may have missed. I lost count of the times I said out loud “oh, I remember that!” while reading this book. There are easter eggs and transcripts of interviews that were new to me and made me feel like a DT insider.
There is a chapter that covers fan questions and evidence. I think that may be the most anticipated chapter in the book! It answers most of the questions we have as DT fans.
My favorite chapter covers the DT fans. Reading about other people (they are amazing) who share my love of all things travel (and Josh) makes me feel as if we are all part of one family - the DT fan family.
I wholeheartedly endorse and recommend you purchase this book and read it immediately! It will take you for a trip down memory lane and you will love the journey.
Hi everyone! I went through the website (and I'm still not done yet) so I can do an audit of dead links and other things that need updating. For now, here are some updates:
Josh Gates had to cancel at the last minute a fan event he was supposed to be doing in Ohio this weekend. Please read the following, if you got tickets to the event:
We have received unfortunate news that production on the new season of Expedition Unknown has kept Josh Gates from being able to make the trip to Ohio this weekend. Both Josh and myself have spoken with production and tried everything that we could to make the schedule work but due to him filming an international show and the travel involved we were just not able to make it work. This was very last minute and very unfortunate. We are sad that he will not make it and both he and I sincerely apologize that he will miss this event. He cares deeply for his fans.
To honor his fans he is working with me and I hope to bring him to the area in the near future for a special lecture that ticket holders could attend for free. I will be sure to keep you informed when we can get the details of this idea straight.
Ideal Event has been holding events for almost ten years now and we try our hardest to make sure that we provide a fun, entertaining and memorable night of talk, learning and exploration with your favorite ghost hunters. Production issues have risen in the past and we do understand the disappointment that may come with a change in our schedule. Because of this, we would like to offer a 10% discount to a future event of your choice, if you are interested, on top of the free lecture we plan to hold with Josh. Just send us an email and we can invoice you with the discount for the event you choose.
We are happy to announce that the other guests are all on schedule to arrive as planned and we know that you will have a wonderful time with Steve, Tango, Sam and Amy. We are happy to announce that Dustin Pari from Ghost Hunters will also be joining as an investigator for both nights. Chip still has space available for his gallery readings for both nights, if you are interested please do not wait as spots are limited. We look forward to seeing you all in the next couple of days! Travel safe. Message from Marc Tetlow @ Ideal Event Management
The "Fan Guide to Destination Truth" arrived in my mailbox yesterday and it was amazing to see my dream of becoming a published author come true (as well as Brad's, who is pictured in the mini gallery above). Without my experiences interviewing the cast, having someone well versed in the paranormal and cryptids to help me write portions of the book, and without YOU guys to encourage me in buying a copy, or letting me know you want an eBook later in time, this is not possible. I even have new fans finding me via the cast sharing my images of the finished book on social media saying they NEED a paper copy. Where were you guys the past month and a half?! Haha totally just kidding. UPDATE: IF YOU WANT A PAPER COPY OR eBOOK, it is available on Amazon and Kindle now! Right now, I'm in the process of filling pre-orders of fans who wanted signed copies. Stay tuned, and thank you! Sincere wishes -Amanda, fan site runner and author of "Fan Guide to DT"
Hi guys! Happy Cinco de Mayo! If you "forgot" what the history of the holiday is, or just need an excuse to watch Josh in a short film, check out "Cookie de Mayo" HERE
Also, thanks so much to everyone who bought a physical copy of the "Fan Guide to Destination Truth"! The proof was given to the publisher and I ordered a sample to make sure the book came out okay and does not have any issues. I will keep everyone posted, but I can likely get copies out to everyone by late May or early June, is my hope. Stay tuned and thank you for your patience! eBook's will be available soon - I believe they will be for Kindles and I hope for iBooks.
FYI - There is a marathon of "Expedition Unknown" on every Wednesday while we wait for new episodes. If you ever want to know when "Expedition Unknown" re-runs are on the Travel Channel, click HERE and check for the correct day and time zone. Re-runs of "Destination Truth" are still played on Syfy, as well as Chiller TV. Also, stay tuned for Episode 5 and catch up on the previous episodes of Ryder's series "Myth Explorer" HERE
