A Dead Bat In Paraguay Expanded Edition

I’m happy to annouce the release of the expanded edition to A Dead Bat In Paraguay, a little over one year after the initial release. The two major changes are a new cover and a seventeen page epilogue that describes what happened during my second trip to Rio.

A Dead Bat In Paraguay gets murdered in sales by my other books (even Bang Colombia), but I have much more pride in it than the others. For artists there’s what pays the bills and then there’s what you do because you wanted to share a story. I think this book shows who I really am (the good and the bad) and also the best of whatever writing ability I possess. While not everyone loves it—in fact I’m pleased that women hate it—the feedback I’ve received tells me it has inspired and entertained men, serving its purpose.

Starting tomorrow I’m going to release the epilogue on the blog, primarily for people who already own the book. It digs deeper into a relationship I had the first time around, one that I wanted to continue upon my return to South America. You’ll find out if reality matched my plans.

I asked myself if the epilogue would be considered a spoiler for those who haven’t yet read the entire book. I don’t think so. I feel like the main text and the epilogue can be considered two separate works that complement each other, though reading both would give a more complete picture and allow you to see the changes that I went through from start to end. The only issue is that some characters in the epilogue may seem underdeveloped since they were already introduced in the main text.

If you want to receive the epilogue in one PDF file to print or read on your e-reader, I’ll be sharing it on my email newsletter Wednesday morning. You can sign up below or on this page if you’re not already on the list.

A Dead Bat In Paraguay is available in the following formats:

Paperback ($14.97)

Kindle ($9.99)

PDF & ePUB package ($10.97)

    I own the original book (with the ugly cover). I seriously thought the cover was a joke when you unveiled it a year ago.

    Looking forward to the epilogue.

    Awesome Roosh, I haven’t read any of your books but I’ve always thought A Dead Bat In Paraguay is the most interesting one, at least for me. Can’t wait to buy it.

    “For artists there’s what pays the bills and then there’s what you do because you wanted to share a story.”

    Exceedingly true.

    I just bought the book (It says it was printed the 9th of January) and I finished it within a couple of days, often staying up late to read it. I’d highly recommend it.

      “It says it was printed the 9th of January”

      The new edition has been out for about a month on Amazon but I wanted to wait until after the holidays to announce it.

    Oh my god I love the illustration at the top right with your big hairy head in a biplane telling us what country you’re in, that’s hilarious. Very nice 😀

    “in fact I’m pleased that women hate it”; because that way you know you’re close to reaching the inconvenient truth?

    I thoroughly enjoyed a Dead Bat in Paraguay and spent many late nights reading it not being able to fall asleep until I found out what happened next.

    The book was an inspiring (and cautionary) tale for those thinking about pursuing similar adventures. It really gave a fascinating look into your thoughts and development.

    Re: Iceland. I’ve barely begun my research. Then I have to analyze the data, then I have to write everything out. I wouldn’t expect anything until March.

    When I do start posting about Iceland, I’m ready for a dozen guys to say “less travel more game!!! i’m not going to iceland ever!!!”

    Yeah that biplane graphic is f’in hilarious. It’s the little details that make all the difference.

  13. johnny January 17, 2011 at 10:45 pm

    top right? biplane? I don’t see it

  14. mr t January 18, 2011 at 4:36 am

    “top right? biplane? I don’t see it”

    look at the top right of this website, right above the “RooshV” logo on the top. oh, and it is a propeller plane, not a biplane.

    you won’t even give initial thoughts on the women?

    can you at least talk about what Iceland is like then? what is the capital like? can you take pics of downtown?

    any info would be good since most people have never been to Iceland. it would probably give you a lot of blog traffic.

    Just curious, why did you change your last name?

  16. Peter Phoenix January 19, 2011 at 5:08 pm

    I liked it. Closure.

    I just bought DBIP, and it’s a great read. I particularly enjoy all the stories about your abdominal issues, because I can directly relate.
