BOCA RATON, Fla., Oct. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- TransMedia Group said it was retained to publicize one of the most unusual book discount offers of this political season: 25% off the purchase price of "Great Britain Blues," a satiric view of life in a "Whalefare" state, but only for supporters of Gov. Romney, whom the author believes will stop America from taking the wrong path.    

To receive their 25% discount, supporters of Gov. Romney need to enter the "Romney discount code" at and "Whalefare" fans can enter the "Obama code" to receive 15% off the purchase price of Fountain's memoir.

The "Great" Britain Blues is a lyrically riveting, ribald autobiography of a Bombardier-guzzling, carousing ex-U.S. Airman who lives sparingly outside of London in a country he calls a "whalefare" state. 

Originally from Ocala, Florida, Fountain's childhood nickname was CAPTAIN REDNECK, which accounts for his writing his memoir as he speaks in gen-x lingo with a Southern drawl, said Tom Madden, CEO of TransMedia Group (

Madden said his firm will publicize Fountain's concerns about President Obama leading America down the same sorry road toward a "whalefare society" as Great Britain.  "Fountain prays President Obama won't crash land America into an entitlement quagmire like Great Britain taxing its 'subjects' like there's no tomorrow."

According to Madden, the book is vulgar in spots, with misogynisticly-sprinkled invective against birds he meets in bars, and occasionally marries, the book subtitled: "Life in a Welfare State," published by Raider Publishing International, is blazingly original in style and lyrics that take a vitriolic, often hilariously funny, satiric look at his own plights and the "whalefare" state that he says the British Isles have become.
