Brainstorm as book tour

Mike Cernovich comments on his recent Brainstorm experience and invites those who pre-order his forthcoming book to a special :

Vox hosts a monthly webinar called Brainstorm. Over dinner in Barcelona he invited me to be a guest. As he’s a friend of mine, I thought it’d be fun.

I did not expect to sell hundreds of copies of books.

Yet that is exactly what happened.

Before appearing on Vox’s Brainstorm, Gorilla Mindset had been selling 35-50 copies a day. A good day on Kindle was 30 copies. (I still sell 10-20 audio and paperback books a day, respectively.)

As you can see on the chart below, Vox’s review of Gorilla Mindset in addition to the scheduled Brainstorm created quite the spike in sales. Doing the virtual book tour with Vox sold at least 100 copies, and likely 200 copies or more.

Along with Vox Day, I am doing a webinar for people who pre-order Danger & Play: Essays on Embracing Masculinity.

Send a screen cap of your pre-order to We’ll host a webinar exclusive for those who pre-order. You only have until October 30th.

Speaking of Brainstorm, the October event for Annual members will be tomorrow night. Invites will go out later today. We have a LOT to discuss, very little of which I am inclined to mention in public.

It’s fascinating to see how useful Brainstorm has become in further weaponizing the VP community. We had a very successful Wargame Task Force meeting two evenings ago, which will be of absolutely no interest to anyone to whom the words “Avalon Hill” and “GDW” mean nothing, but it allowed us to quickly and efficiently make decisions, assign responsibilities, and start making progress on our current project, the first glimpse of which can be seen later today over at Castalia House.

I have no doubt that it will be equally useful for other projects, both more and less esoteric.And for that, we all have to thank the Annual members. They are the individuals who are making this all possible.
