You know some days I feel awful because my views and sales aren't as good as a lot of other peoples

But then a thread like this comes along and reminds me that[ I'm literally hundreds of thousands of ranks above all of these peoples best effort put together.]
(https://www.amazon.com/State-Play-Creators-Critics-Culture/dp/1609806395/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1473475014&sr=8-1&keywords=state+of+play+creators+and+critics)

As of today my GamerGate book:

Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #161,401 Paid in Kindle Store (See Top 100 Paid in Kindle Store)
56 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Business & Money > Marketing & Sales > Public Relations
157 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Humor & Entertainment > Puzzles & Games > Video & Electronic Games
184 in Books > Business & Money > Marketing & Sales > Public Relations

Their book:
Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #850,228 in Books (See Top 100 in Books)
594 in Books > Computers & Technology > Games & Strategy Guides > Game Programming
2257 in Books > Humor & Entertainment > Puzzles & Games > Video & Computer Games

I actually had a surge last weekend probably had something to do with that idiot song, don't know I was at dragoncon and been in new york all this week working on my next projects so couldn't chase that trend but I at least figured a rising tide would raise all ships. Still it's not fair right or respectful to my work or the people I will be working with to consider them competition anymore since we'd like to be at the actual top, not the pretend top where our friends circle jerk us..

She was a stand-up comedian? The autists at Encyclopedia Dramatica have really fallen down on the job, then. That is mentioned nowhere in her entry.

I'd also be curious to find out what exactly it was she "created" or "innovated" in 2015. Her being a creative type and all. The only thing that comes to mind for me is one of the articles in that The State of Play book. And that was all about how Depression Quest GOT created, so it is hardly "creative" in its own right.


> She now heads Crash Override, a nonprofit designed to help those suffering from severe online abuse.

Just checked. Website still not up.

An estimated 252 sales on Amazon - http://www.novelrank.com/asin/1609806395

Apparently the book was changed into "Untitled" and by "Anonymous", with a release date at the end of 2030. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Crash-Override-Inside-Gamergate-Internet-ebook/dp/B01AS3WJZM

Were you mentioned in https://www.amazon.com/State-Play-Creators-Critics-Culture/dp/1609806395 ?

Didn't Zoe Quinn publish like a year ago?

Grim Jim's book has been speeding along at NaNoWriMo speed. Something like 2K words per day at least. If I had put 1/4 of the shitposting effort that I put into Evergreen last month into writing about GG instead... I bet I could have rushed one out too.

Hell, why not everyone publish little books. Last time I wrote a book I had a few paperback proofs printed for like $2.50 each. I'm guessing that sending them off to Amazon wouldn't be particularly much harder, plus you can always just go for a $1 ebook version with no physical copies.

Edit: I found both https://www.amazon.com/State-Play-Creators-Critics-Culture/dp/1609806395/ and https://www.amazon.com/Haters-Harassment-Abuse-Violence-Online/dp/1612347665 Basically, Milo's full of shit, as usual.

It's not a problem. We all use the wrong word sometimes. GamerGate I guess made me paranoid a little.

You might want to check out State of Play for some ideas:

Leigh Alexander I think is leaving gaming though and Anita Sarkeesian is changing her project when tropes vs women dies down. She's almost done.

I think its because it literally says she contributed to the book on the page Source
> "FEATURING: IAN BOGOST - LEIGH ALEXANDER - ZOE QUINN - ANITA SARKEESIAN & KATHERINE CROSS - IAN SHANAHAN - ANNA ANTHROPY - EVAN NARCISSE - HUSSEIN IBRAHIM - CARA ELLISON & BRENDAN KEOGH - DAN GOLDING - DAVID JOHNSTON - WILLIAM KNOBLAUCH - MERRITT KOPAS - OLA WIKANDER"

And you don't get featured in a book without contributing to it in some way
