The Times They Are A-Changin’

This blog has been quiet over the past couple of months. There are a few reasons for this, but the most important is that sometimes it’s better to just shut up and listen for a while. Not forever though.

My next book is finished.

The 2012 End Of The World Tour will be available for sale on June 1st. It’s a collection of stories from my first two months in Southeast Asia, and it’s pretty damn good if you ask me. I’ve sent out about a hundred review copies, so you won’t have to take my word for it. I’m releasing it on every digital format you can shake your dick at, and the price will be $8.99 .

Humility has never come easily to me, so I will just come out and say it: I’m really excited about this book. It’s the best thing I’ve ever written, and I think a lot of other people are going to recognize that. Keep an eye on the new blog, Twitter, Facebook, and the RooshV Forum for details.

Now, drum roll please – I am shutting down this blog.

(Gasps, screams, sobs, women fainting)

But, I’m continuing at a new URL:

Why must I impose on my loyal readers the ten-second burden of re-bookmarking and re-subscribing to a new blog?

Part of it is a desire for a fresh start with a clean slate, even if it’s only symbolic. I feel like a very different person than the man who started writing Freedom Twenty-Five almost two years ago. More practically, I think that it’s confusing branding to be a multi-title author with a website that shares a name with one of those titles. Freedom Twenty-Five is now only a small part of what I’m doing, and I want a new site that reflects that.

Besides, I’m twenty-seven. The URL was never destined to age well.
