Twitter Discovers The Editorial Notes For Milo Yiannopolous' Defunct Book With Simon & Schuster & OMG IT'S ROUGH!

Filed under: Sad SadTwitterBookz

no title

The world was aghast when alt-right personality Milo Yiannopoulos went from Twitter troll to potential best-selling author after the provocateur scored a massive book deal with Simon & Schuster.

Thanks to general opposition and the former Breitbart writer's dumbass remarks endorsing pedophilia, the publisher canceled the deal — prompting Yiannopoulos to file a lawsuit against S&S for ruining his "brand."

As it turns out, the petty suit was the best thing to happen to Yiannopoulos' critics, because the editor's notes for his first draft were among the public court docs that found their way to Twitter. And, holy-Steve Bannon are they rough!

Publisher and novelist Jason Pinter tweeted out screenshots of the court records on Wednesday, including scathing feedback from Yiannopoulos' conservative editor Mitchell Ivers on the book's weak arguments, arbitrary insults, and one too many "black-dick" jokes.

Overall, Ivers called the Dangerous manuscript "at best, a superficial work full of incendiary jokes with no coherent or sophisticated analysis of political issues." But the real hilarity lies in Ivers' page comments, which grew increasingly infuriated with Yiannopoulos's inability to string together a logical argument.

Do these notes hint at yet another reason why his book wasn't published? See the lowlights for yourself (below), provided by delighted Twitter users:

Barack & Michelle Obama Are Making MILLIONS For Their White House Memoirs After Record-Breaking Bidding War!

no title

OK, obviously everyone wants to know what went on inside the West Wing during Barack and Michelle Obama's glorious eight years.

Were they #RelationshipGoals as we all thought? Or did they argue politics behind closed doors? What did they really think about Donald and Melania Trump?

We'd buy that book!

And obviously publishers feel the same way.

According to a report from the Financial Times, publishing houses HarperCollins, Simon & Schuster, and Macmillan all bid on the former First Couple's first post-White House books.

But it was Penguin Random House (who published Barack's previous books) that won with a $60 MILLION package deal for their memoirs, which they plan to write as two separate books.

That's twice as much (each) as previous record holder Bill Clinton, whose White House memoir sold for $15 mil back in 2000.

Will YOU buy the Obamas' books??

Simon & Schuster Cancels Milo Yiannopoulos' Book!

Filed under: Business BlitzBookzControversy

no title

Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.

It seems in the wake of his pedophilia comment scandal, Milo Yiannopoulos is being dropped by more than just the conservatives.

Simon & Schuster have apparently finally listened to the masses boycotting the company and decided the professional troll is just too offensive to be published.

The publishing house has, "after careful consideration" decided to cancel the publication of Dangerous, which was to come out June 13. Milo confirmed the news on his own Facebook, saying simply:

"They canceled my book."

We're sure he'll have more to say on the subject very soon…

Another Twilight Inspired Erotic Fanfic Gets 50 Shades Treatment, Multi-Book Deal

twilight-fanfic-the-office-beautiful-bastards-robert-pattinson-kristen-stewart-50-shades-of-grey

We suppose it was inevitable!

After the success of 50 Shades of Grey, an erotic novel based loosely on Twilight characters, publishers are desperate for more of the same!!

We're just surprised it took so long!!

Hoping to tap into the same market E.L. James' novels' conquered, Simon & Schuster plan to release two more in a similar vein next year.

Beautiful Bastard and Beautiful Stranger, written by Christina Hobbs and Lauren Billings, is set in (what we assume must be) a very kinky office.

Twi-Hard panties will surely moisten each time Boss Edward tosses Assistant Bella onto a Xerox machine and rams his stapler into her supply closet!!

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson never imagined their onscreen love would inspire a diverse array of Soccer Mom porn!

We wonder what's next! Edward and Bella in space?

At Woodstock?

On a 15h Century pirate ship?!

We cannot wait to read them all!

Steve Jobs Has A Biography Coming Out!

Filed under: Etc.Tech Talk

steve-jobs-to-release-biography-called-the-book-of-jobs

Steve Jobs will be allowing a biography to be released via Simon & Schuster publishing about the Apple CEO's life, to be titled iSteve: The Book of Jobs, and written by Walter Isaacson, with a 2012 release!

Apparently, the author has previously written biographies, but only for already-deceased folks like Albert Einstein and Ben Franklin. However, he's been hard at work on the Jobs project since 2009, and has had complete access to his friends and family.

So we guess that means we'll know all about his health scares then! Inneresting!

Could be worth a read! We imagine he's had a pretty fascinating life!

What do U think?? Do U want to read The Book of Jobs??
