      An American Psycho-esque novel about the shallowness of the average millennial would be a great read.
      >My Nigerian friend Kwombe asked me to meet him at our local craft beer joint. He's not really my friend, but having a black man as an acquaintance does wonder for my image. Before leaving my overpriced NYC condo I make sure I have my Doc Martens on so everyone knows I'm still hip and make sure my Ukrainian flag and Trans Rights Are Human Rights pins are visible on my vegan leather jacket. When I get to the bar Kwombe fails to respend to my greeting as his attention is focused on sharing his third Instagram infrographic this week regarding Palestine.

            >"Did you hear the news about an activist ally being senselessly stabbed earlier this week?" I ask the bartender. I would not normally talk to her since she is fat and over 26 years old but I have to interact with her because she knows Katie, the girl from the office. If I win the favor of the Mother Hen she will let her guard down and not wienerblock me. "Terrible. His poor girlfriend must have been traumatized. The perpetrator seemed distressed. Our system let him down. We need change." She nods. I wonder if Katie's nipples are pierced. She recently moved from Boston, her neighborhood had become too dangerous she said. I asked if there were local DIY groups she was a part of; my ex used to be in one. "Really?" Her eyes brighten. "What was it like? No I really haven't done that although I want to." She goes on about how she's new here, though everyone knows already. One guy tried to greet her but she ignored him. He was 5'6, when will he learn? My beer is getting cold, I should have bought a Martini. I had a Martini in Ibiza last summer. The people were too loud so I purchased a pair of earplugs. I use them from time to time in meetings. "Hey man nice jacket!" That's Tim from the office, I forgot he comes here from time to time. "Thank you. How's your side gig going? Bicycle repairs right?" It's going well but not too well. He thinks not many people are interested in alternative workshops. I think he didn't manage to find a cute Latina to groom. Beaners have really swarmed this place but at least their food is better than the food chain slop. I need to buy a poncho to hang in my living room for when I throw parties. "Did you know my grandmother was Puerto Rican?" My boss would be surprised. "That's how I hambla espagnol so well." He gives me a weird look. Why is my second beer taking so long? Stupid fricking b***h, I shouldn't have to ask twice.

        The problem with this is that the cognitive dissonance of self-righteousness has grown to such lengths that it would not even be possible for an interior monologue to articulate what the person is doing like this. It would be utterly bound and hedged in by ideological jingles. The blatant egocentrism of the 80s is gone, though as a motivation it remains just the same, if not intensified.

        I don't know what it is, but even though I agree with this sentiment this is just pure fricking cringe. Fox News Boomers have somehow made the most uncool people on the planet (SJWs) cringe to make fun of because the embarrassing not-self-aware boomers ran all the "jokes" into the ground and managed to be just as annoying with their shit. Like I'm so fatigued from this shit since gamer gate and feminist Rekt compilations hit the scene a decade ago.
        Normal people would have been shamed into stopping by now but since SJWs literally have no shame and live in echo chambers they have outlived the entire culture making fun of them to the point where making fun of them is now a tired cliche.

        This monologue of too self aware, people with cognitive dissonance constantly lie to themselves that they are good people doing their best. Very cringe writing, but the concept has potential. You just need extremely good talent to make the dissonance realistic. It's hard getting into the head of a bipolar person who thinks they are the worst people in the world for being white, not perfect but at the same time have extreme self confidence by "being on the right side" pro feminism, pro lgbt, minorities etc. Basically a pendulum swinging between white guilt to a saviour complex.

      I think that the people who are of and can really identify with the average millenial are generally not likely to be capable of writing a good book. That sort of lifestyle and mental state necessitates a life of barcades, video games, toys and other pointless shit. There is absolutely no room for literature. This is also why actually good literature is neither popular nor institutionally approved. The culture has just collapsed into the muck.

            Why is every fantasy made by white women like this so...hollow? I remember going to a state fair and getting a signed copy of a book from a woman and her husband as well. I was impressed because it was all done through local and collaborative self publishing.

            I read the book. It's nothing but a "oh wow, what if the princess saved the knight" story we've already seen, the main character is a blatant self insert for the author...and it's as basic as you can get. Same shit with the maps and character art. It's like these people don't even LIKE fantasy at all. Or even understand it.

            I don't think these types of women are bad people. But they're just so harmlessly vanilla NPC that it genuinely confuses me how these people read stuff and they just. Don't get it.

            what actually matters to this type of person is the narcissistic fantasy of "being an AUTHOR," which is all about the announcements and the interviews and the audience interactions (like talking to you at the state fair), the book itself is just a prop. it just has to look plausible. the important part is "what kind of person i want to be" and the writing gets half-assedly filled in using the logic of "what kind of book would the kind of person i want to be write? i guess there would be a badass princess or something." it feels strange to read because it wasn't meant to be read, it was meant to be handed out at state fairs. it exists solely for her benefit.

            These "indie" authors are publishing mass-market slop targeted for a lowest-common-denominator audience. If they didn't, they wouldn't be able to earn a living.

            Amazon sells somewhere around 80% of all books globally, a vast majority of which are "self" published. Anyone can upload anything to "kindle direct publishing" and enjoy the same revenue split that only A-list authors can get from conventional presses. In strict dollars and cents, you'd be a fool to publish anywhere but on Amazon.

            This leads to incredible market saturation. Kindle direct is drowning in ChatGPT summaries of bestselling books, e-celebrity autobiographies, self-help manifestos, and genre schlock in every genre.

            To succeed in this environment, you must either (1) cater to a very small niche of readers who reliably pay for anything that checks certain boxes, or (2) rely heavily on social media marketing and keyword matching -- often so much so that your outline is little more than an amalgam of trends.

            (1) is great if you don't mind writing pornography (sometimes called "romance") or post-apocalyptic neo-westerns that advocate a return to the gold standard. Keep turning out the specific thing your readership wants, and they'll keep buying your books. But if you have any artistic drive, you'll eventually get sick of writing the same book over and over again.

            (2) gives the author flexibility, since you can write any story you want as long as it coincides with the current BookTok trend. But unless you can see a year into the future, you find yourself in a new dilemma: (a) write an inventive story first, then shoehorn in the viral terms you see trending just before publishing it, or (b) write a stock story that you can churn out quickly, tailored from the beginning to the trend.

            (a) works, but if you have a genuine artistic vision, you won't cheapen it just to accommodate the right hashtags, so in practice almost nobody pursues it. So nearly everyone does (b), reproducing stock plots and stock characters, tailored to the moment.

            Postmodern design is in? Write characters with simple clothes, and pay a contractor to draw your characters in the Memphis style. Earth tones are in? Change the setting to a rocky cliffside. Female heros are in? Gender-swap the knight and the princess. Sensitive men are in? Swap the knight and the princess back again, but make the knight sad about his dead wife. Pan-Asian race politics are in? Set it in a vaguely oriental city (without saying "oriental," of course; we don't use that word anymore), and make the bad guys English.

            In practice, (2b) is only distinguishable from (1) because the demand for a given keyword expires over a period of months rather than years. Regardless of the mode, every "indie" author is effectively a servant of Amazon's user-recommendation algorithm, tailoring their work to a tiny audience they can predictably monitize.

      9 times out of 10 it's some guy who went insane and abandoned his family in his 40s to pursue this.
      My clownworld ass school had a 52 year old HUGE transwoman prostitute come give a talk to us about gender and he told us he hasn't talked to his wife and 2 children in 10 years because he decided to trans out

        What are you supposed to take away from that? If you suggested he abandoned his family you'd probably be expelled. The children are literally the bad guys in the scenario they're selling lol

          Obviously. It’s about brainwashing. Some kid is supposed to think “yeah, it’s ok for me to abandon family to troon out because they did it”. That is the point.

    Why does every country's bestseller list need a random news publication attached to it?

      newspapers just ended up falling into the role of compiling best seller lists a century ago. it's a tradition at this point.

    what does it even mean it is New York Times best selling book? did they publish it? or did they just do the ranking?

      it means literally nothing. It's a marketing tactic. You only have to sell a few thousand copies to be #1 for a week, so its incredibly easy to fake being a best seller. A self published book "Handbook for Mortals" did exactly that when the author bought a few thousand copies off amazon. And they would have gotten away with it if the big israeli publishing houses didn't demand it be revoked. Only Random House, Macmillin, Harper Collins, Simon & Schuster, and Hachette can rig the best seller list by buying their own copies of the book!

        and what role does the NYT play there then? do they just check every week who sold most books and call him the winner?

          They’re literally curating books and telling you what you should read and shouldn’t read. This isn’t intuitive to you because you’re not the son of some lawyers in Boston. If you were, you would know exactly what the New York Times is and does intuitively.

      It means the New York Times, which is the Bible for coastal liberal-progressives in the upper middle and lower upper classes that have jobs like those in universities, government agencies, legal advocacy groups, etc., has acted as progressive commissar and approved this book as a book which affirms progressive biases and refineries the socially engineered worldview that the staffers at the New York Times think everyone on the planet should have. The publishers want this to happen because New York Times stamp of approval means boosted sales.

    Doesn’t piss anybody else off that literature has been transformed into low brow fantasy indulgence for women and social climbing for trannies? What the frick? I’m tired of going to the book store and it being filled with shitty fantasy and fricking toys!!!!

      Yes. The last time I went to a Barnes and Noble, they had a full back row of isles dedicated to toys, the entire back wall was dedicated to extremely expensive "collectors" legos. One corner of the store was for movies, the other corner was a starbucks, in the center was a massive kindle section. There was also like two whole isles for manga. Strewn about were isles of random hobby things like board games, DnD, etc.
      It was like 75% random bullshit and 25% books. And no I didn't find what I was looking for.

      Opening is a bit cringe but I agree with the general sentiment. You shouldn't be ashamed of ignorance if you're trying to rectify it.
