My new novel, BRAVO, drops on July 22nd. It’s about this guy named Jad Bell who is a Special Forces operator on a super-duper-secret team and he runs around generally trying to do the right thing while many, many people try to do the wrong thing.

It’s also about this woman named Petra Nessuno who’s been deep deep deep undercover for almost two years and who’s now back “in the world” and having to deal with the fact that she had to be someone she’s not to survive, and that person she had to be had to do things she’s not particular at peace with, either. But she kinda misses being that other her. Because that other her was kinda awesome.

And it’s about this other woman who tells people her name is Jordan (but it’s not) and how she’s been deep deep deep undercover for, basically, her whole damn life, and she’s doing it all for the love of a man who is quite possibly a genius but also maybe totally bugfuck.

Love is funny.

And it’s about some other stuff. It is also the follow-up to my novel ALPHA, if you happened to have read that and are wondering what happens next.

Thing is, I’d really like people to buy this book. I think it’s a pretty good book, if I may say so myself. I like my publisher. They’ve been very, very supportive of me, of these books. I’d like to see their support rewarded.

To that end, my publisher, Mulholland Books, is doing a promotion. That’s the graphic above. You go to this link and you sign up and if you’re selected, you get a copy of ALPHA to give to a friend, and an advanced reading copy of BRAVO, signed by me, to keep for yourself.

Again, you go to this link. You sign up, and if you’re one of the randomly selected winners, you get the first Bell novel to give to a friend, lover, stranger, enemy, pet, whatever you like, and a signed advanced reading copy of BRAVO for yourself. Or your friend. Or lover, or stranger, or enemy, or pet, etc.

Supplies are limited. I know how many of those ARCs I signed, trust me. They are limited.

(I’d move fast if you want one.)

My dog REALLY wants this book.

Contest link doesn’t work though (boo!), but he can handle the wait, hopefully. ;)

You’re not the first person who’s said the link isn’t working for them, which is… confusing, because it’s working for me.

Trying it again.

  • me: hey i like this thing it's pretty cool
  • tumblr: here's a list of 247 reasons with 2 paragraphs each on why that thing is awful and you need to stop enjoying yourself
  • me: oh wow I had no idea. thank you for bringing this to my attention. while I do recognize that the things you listed are problematic, it does not change the fact that I still like it because I realize that liking things that have problematic elements (as most things do) is not necessarily a reflection on my character and personal enjoyment. moreover, knowing this will help me to recognize problematic elements in other things, allowing me make better and more informed choices in the media that I choose to habituate in the future

Lemme just sum up the past couple days here. Some Tumblr feminists thought they could tussle with /b/, and they decided to launch a raid. These few feminists did this regardless of the consequences that are and always have been very clear. Everyone knows that when /b/ retaliates it will involve gore, hardcore porn, and possible illegal grounds with cp. There’s also the fact that several people on /b/ were willing and ready to ddos Tumblr over this whole spiel.
Let’s start at the beginning though.
In the threads that the feminists made, they claimed that they were going to cleanse /b/ of it’s horrible, sexist ways. Several of them sat around in the threads pulling the same shit they’re known for; calling everyone sexists/ableists/homophobes/racists/etc and spouting a bunch of misinformation (one said America bombed Japan solely because they were asian, and that millions died in those bombings).
4chan’s initial raids were pretty weak. It was a couple neckbeards posting the same gore images over and over again.
Over the past couple days the raids have apperantly gotten worse, although having dug deep into a few of the tags known to be targets (#misogyny, #ableism, and #feminism) I saw no gore or shock images and about 50 people whining about 4chan’s raid.
Personally, I’m on 4chan’s side here. I know that a lot of uninvolved people are getting hurt by this, but it will be good to show the people of Tumblr why you don’t mess with /b/. Most of the feminists who started this were saying things like “What are they going to do? Post gore?! Haw haw haw!” and now they’re seeing just how bad it really can be and they’ll hopefully apologize to everyone for bringing this force of nature to their doorstep.
The raid will be over in a couple days and until then if you’re too sensitive for it avoid the tags listed in here http://nevvyinthetardislock.tumblr.com/post/90808092530/please-signal-boost-burnthepasttotheground Even then though the posts aren’t floating to the top, so you shouldn’t have to worry too much.
I’m sticking this in every tag listed in the linked post. Hopefully this can quell a few of you, and/or attract plenty of hatemail to me.

I personally don’t agree with any of these sides because I’m not going to deal with this shit storm but here’s a rundown of what’s happening.
