Sad Puppy Update: Book Bomb for the short fiction this Wednesday.

Mark your calenders. We will be Book Bombing the short fiction categories this Wednesday.

The Novella Category Bomb was a huge success. Thousands of copies were moved. A week later and they’re still on their respective genres bestseller lists. So basically we made sure that these will be the most widely read items in their category.

Now we’re going to do the same thing for the short stories and novelettes. Sad Puppies is all about getting people to nominate based on what they like, as opposed to what they are supposed to like.

On that note, yes. I’ve seen the latest K. Tempest Bradford article, challenging people not to read any books by heterosexual white males for a year. I’ll do a blog post about that asinine SJW bullshit if I get a chance, but I’ve got a paying deadline looming. However there is nothing quite like being lectured by someone who grew up with millionaire parents, from a rich neighborhood in Manhattan, who attended one of the most expensive universities in America, about “Privilege”. (plus, the irony of her attacking Neil Gaiman while wearing a Dr. Who shirt is pretty hilarious).

If I don’t get a chance to write about that, just be aware that she’s just another angry SJW, mad at all you people for having fun wrong. Sad Puppies is all about you guys enjoying what you want, regardless of the finger shaking scolds.

So, mark your calenders, Book Bomb this Wednesday. Where you can check out some of the awesome short fiction we’re suggesting on our Sad Puppies slate… Oh, and I think some of the authors aren’t horrible white “cismales”, and thus K. Tempest approved, but I since I don’t give a shit I haven’t bothered to check.

Epic Mysteries Kickstarter! Bigfoots, man!
Another Czech cover. Seriously, I love these.

I’m still trying to figure out how the SJW’s haven’t figure out that repeating what they see as past wrongs with the script being flipped doesn’t really solve a damn thing, especially since the people they’re “punishing” aren’t the ones responsible in the first place.

The only “equality” they care about is the Animal Farm kind: making sure they’re more equal than anyone else.

And they always assume they’ll be in the “more equal” camp.

Two things:
I own a Nook, am I considered an outcast if I get it from the B&N store instead?
Second thing, some people don’t understand that as a hetero male that I don’t read books about certain things because I literally don’t connect to the characters. Not that I have problems with the things per se. Just I don’t care. It’s the reason I never read Little Women.

Getting paid is most important, but you can always buy it on Amazon on your PC and use Calibre to convert it to Nook format.

Who were Bradford’s millionaire parents? Her public profiles don’t mention anything about that and say she’s from Cincinnati. (I’m not casting doubt on what Larry said, by the way, but I’d like to have proof to throw against SJW lies.)

Do the new changes to Amazon’s ranking system make Book Bombs less effective?

T.L. Knighton

If they’re less effective, then I can only pray to have so little effect on my own sales someday. 😀

I intend to respond to Bradford’s nonsense tomorrow with a recommendation list of female and POC authors who also happen to be Sad Puppies. And by the way, you’re going on the list. After all, you are Portuguese and grew up a member of the working class. 😉

there must be some way to honk the SJW clown noses versus taking a Louisville slugger to their precious snowflake skulls

If you use the bat to hit them in the nose, you get the honk for free!

Paying? PAYING? Don’t you know REAL writers do it for their Art? They’re free to create, unbound by the fetters of crass capitalist commercialism…

[unreel as needed, wipe, flush…]

> heterosexual white men

Do they have a checklist? Maybe a point system to rate acceptable authors. Points for gay, Asian, female, unibrow, hairy armpits, trust fund… below some minimum number, the author and all his/her/its works are unacceptable.

I’m more interested to see if Scalzi and Hines get SJW exceptions or if they are cast out into the darkness with the rest of them.

I’ve always kind of wondered how that group would react to me if I were to become an author. Ethnically, I’m of Nordic and British Isles descent, but I was born in South Korea (army family), and have citizenship there, so legally I’m Korean. And since I also have US citizenship, that makes me an Asian-American, doesn’t it? Colleges seemed to think so when I was attending. I got notices I was eligible for Asian minority scholarships. Granted, I’m female, so I’d probably get a pass anyway, but it’d be interesting to see how they’d parse the white vs Asian… Read more »

‘Fraid not – I imagine that you would fall into the same box, but even less entitled to support, as white South Africans.

I love how Bradford tries to pass off a racial quarantine as if it’s ideological one. That right there tells you everything you want to know about the inner workings of the minds of bald-faced racists and intersectionalism in particular. I would say I’m truly amazed they think anyone is buying into such a transparent con game but there is a reason racial bigots have a reputation for brutal stupidity. Sunil Patel is the guy who Tweeted “how many of you refuse to watch/read something if it’s about Yet Another Straight White Man?” When I called him a “racist motherfucker”… Read more »

For the sake of symmetry, no heterosexual white male [or female] should read anything written by an SJW author for a year.

I’m trying to imagine if Neil Gaiman was holding up a K Tempest Bradford book that was crossed out while exhorting people not to read anything by a gay, female POC . . .

But he’d have to be wearing a t-shirt for a tv show about lesbian PoC which Bradford wrote episodes for. Good luck finding one.
