Last week was mostly promotional for the second edition of Bang. It case you missed it:
Monday: I shared details of the new edition, especially the text messaging section
Wednesday: I discussed the gloomy future of game
Friday: I gave the most optimal method for studying any game resource
I received a lot of emails from guys who missed Wednesday’s newsletter that included a download link to the text messaging guide. I’m going to send it again one more time this Friday, so fill out the newsletter sign-up page by then (or the form at the bottom of this post) to receive it for free.
With this major project completed, it’s time to edit my life schedule…
July: Complete text messaging guide
September—December: Complete epilogue to A Dead Bat In Paraguay. Start day game book rough draft. Prepare for next trip.
January: New trip
As you can see I’ve simplified my plans from before. I’ve been getting the itch to go to Brazil for the winter and actually started planning for it, but as of right now I think it’s best to suffer through a DC winter to get the day game book off the ground. If I go to Brazil again I may get stuck there forever, yet I still want to visit other parts of the world. This decision is tearing me up inside, so I’ve stopped listening to Brazilian music because of the pain it causes.
On a sad note I’ve started charging for Bang Colombia (same price as A Dead Bat In Paraguay). I don’t have the audience size where a donation model would bring enough money to support projects like it. The donation rate was respectable (2.5% with an average donation of just under $6), so I may experiment with it again in the future.
On a positive note, in July, a month when I didn’t release anything new, I sold just over 300 copies of my books. Considering that in 2008 I sold on average 40 copies a month, this is an exciting development. It has given me the confidence and financial support to focus exclusively on writing. I haven’t worked for the man in three and a half years.

I know what you mean about wanting to go back to Brazil. I also want to head back to the country I went to and am also afraid I’ll get stuck there. I have to travel to other countries around the world first. I keep coming across reminders of where I was and I’m ready to jump ship.

Roosh, are you interested in visiting Eastern Europe?
Man Roosh you gotta go to Europe, that’s were you can test it out and see if your game is strong enough, against the “unreactive Russians bitch-shields” ha ha

Roosh, why not go to south east Asia?
Congrats on reaching the point where your writing gives you financial independence from trudging through the tedium & irritations of ordinary jobs & commuting.
That to me is huge success all by itself — one I’ve been wanting for years.
PS: If you prioritize continuing to learn and advance as much as you can, surely you’d benefit more from going somewhere you’ve never been before, rather than returning to South America.
keep living the dream roosh
“I sold just over 300 copies of my books. Considering that in 2008 I sold on average 40 copies a month, this is an exciting development.”
More travel time or upgraded digs.
Keep this up and pretty soon Roosh is going to start spiking his hair, rocking designer jeans/sparkly Ed Hardy shirts and ordering bottle service in the clubs of Rio.

Do you plan on living in Brazil permanently?
From the above statement it sounds like that is your goal.
Congratulation you´re living the dream!
Roosh will end up marrying a Brazilian gal once his gaming is over. Just watch! :)
Out of curiosity Roosh, what brazilian songs you listen to?
5,6: Yes I’m interested in Europe, specifically Russia and the dinky Eastern European countries that are not too touristy. I have no interest in a place like Prague.
8: I don’t like Asian girls. I can’t go to a country where I wouldn’t consider bedding the women. What would I do with my spare time? Sightsee and take photos???
19: I like Vanessa De Mata and Maria Rita (of course brazilian girls introduced me to them). Banda Djavu is fun.
unrelated question, roosh–how important is it to get the hoe out of the bar/club before it starts closing for the night? it seems like bad form to be standin there talkin just wastin time. thanks
Roosh, you said in a brazilian interview you were gonna head to serbia, what’s up with that?
Roosh, do it- go back to Brazil man. You really should.
“8: I don’t like Asian girls. I can’t go to a country where I wouldn’t consider bedding the women. What would I do with my spare time? Sightsee and take photos???”
My god man, I hear you, but damn! Whats not to like?? The hairless bodies, the submissiveness, the constant massages, catering to your every need in the bedroom, and regular insistence on washing every part of your body? lol.,,I mean, granted, I’m comparing to the average American girl that Ive been dating for the past three years, but Asian girls are far from something to be avoided. But to each his own. If you don’t like them, more for us guys with the fever…
Don’t do any part of Europe in January. You’ll freeze your ass off. Russia is even worse. Go to Brazil and finish the books under a palm tree. Then hop over in April.
Strange that you wouldn’t bed even the hottest of Asian chicks. Very strange.
I guarantee that no one here gives a shit about your pathetic “life update”.
Stick to advice on girls.
Hit amsterdam and tell us about it.
I have only been to airport.
“Yes I’m interested in Europe, specifically Russia and the dinky Eastern European countries that are not too touristy. I have no interest in a place like Prague.”
I don’t know about Russia or other dinky Eastern European countries. A lot of racist skinheads there.
Roosh looks (is?) middle eastern. Brazil sounds like a better option.
the double rainbow ban tactic is really hilarious.
