Book announcement – Righteous Seduction: Redemption for “Nerds”, Unappreciated Nice Guys, and Captives of the Friend Zone

Recently I released my latest – and longest – title in my catalog.  All my other books thus far are speculative fiction – many quite cheesy for comedy value.  This one is quite a divergence, partly to diversify my reader base.

That wasn’t the only reason, though.  I’m here to help my brothers out.  I’m one who has found the way, mostly through painful trial and error, finding success I hadn’t dreamed of before.  This too can be yours, and I lay out my experience for you, for just the price of a cheeseburger combo.  Find it at your favorite book retailer:

My research took me in some unexpected directions.  This isn’t just another “how to pick up chicks” book!  Besides teaching you how to get your social life into high gear, it delves into philosophy, the place of men in today’s society, and the history of courtship – including an amusing tale of what happens to a time traveler from 1985 who goes clubbing after a physics experiment brings him into the present day.

It was a grand undertaking, and researching it was quite a learning experience for me.  Key insights that I came to realize:

  • The sexual revolution changed the face of the dating scene entirely.  This is the reason why most guys have very limited success, if any – they’re following the strategies their grandfathers used to court their grandmothers.
  • The changes have created winners and losers in what used to be a fairly even playing field.  The winners include young, attractive women and guys who are either high-status or have lots of “game”.  The losers include older women, about 80% of guys, and society itself has received quite a bit of collateral damage.
  • Being average just isn’t enough these days.  You’ve got to stand out, and some of the ways to do so are quite surprising.
  • There are a great many ways guys can screw up an interaction.  Being aware of the situation as it unfolds, not making mistakes, and keeping cool throughout are your guide through the maze.
  • Protocol is critical in the game of courtship.  A great many ways men fail are due to misinformation about the way the dating scene works.  The sexual revolution changed things greatly – mostly for the worse, both societally and individually.  If you’re listening to traditional dating advice, Hollywood conventions, and much of the advice that women give you, then you’re at a terrible disadvantage.
  • The Friend Zone, to a large degree, is a huge scam for a woman to extract resources and utility from a guy who is being strung along by false hopes, while his dedication is rewarded by her sleeping with other dudes.  Don’t fall for it!

The rest of my boilerplate marketing hype follows:

The sexual revolution changed the face of society, including the game of courtship. The dating scene has become very difficult for most men today, especially for those who aren’t aware of the new rules. Relying on outmoded advice, pop cultural conventions, and other misinformation will leave you behind.

Some examples of what happens when men act on outdated advice, misconceptions, and lies:

Myth: Just be yourself. Result: You never improve.
Myth: You’re not allowed to start conversations. Result: You never meet anybody.
Myth: You can only win her after a long courtship. Result: She ends up with some other dude.
Myth: Treat her like a princess. Result: You get treated like a peasant, not a prince.
Myth: “I believe in being friends first.” Result: “I wish I could find someone exactly like you (who isn’t you).” Or: “You’ll make such a great catch (for someone else).”

Sigmund Freud famously said that he wasn’t able to figure out “What does a woman really want?” The seduction community has found some answers: actually, sometimes it’s the opposite of what she says she wants! Learn this, among other items:

  • Myths and facts about seduction, and why men today must learn the real rules of the game
  • You’ve heard “men only want one thing”; the secret is that women want it too!
  • The dating scene follows the laws of economics; how value is assigned, and how market forces fluctuated historically
  • Not only are you allowed to start conversations, you’re expected to do so!
  • Resolving the conundrum of showing too little interest or too much interest
  • What feminism really teaches these days and how this affects society
  • Why average guys are considered “a dime a dozen”, and “nerds” get the worst of it
  • The teachings of ancient philosophers can help you be a better man and improve your love life too
  • The major insecurities guys have, what to do about them, and why that’s not as bad as you think
  • The character traits that turn women on, and how to develop your personality
  • How to sharpen your appearance, get in shape, and get your life out of a rut
  • How to recover from shyness
  • Why you can’t let rejection get to you
  • The female thought process
  • How men get stuck in the “Friend Zone”, why it’s often a scam, and what to do about it
  • The “Nice Guy” versus “jerk” false dichotomy, and how to be a decent person without being ignored
  • Screening out neurotic women and some other types you don’t want to invite into your life
  • Avoiding pitfalls of sex that can ruin your life
  • Why being a sensitive, cuddly teddy bear – like you were told you should be – will get you nowhere
  • How women test us, how to respond, and why buying that drink gets you nowhere too
  • Making a good first impression and improving your conversation skills
  • Answers for flaking and other common aggravations
  • That great floating abstraction of “creepiness” and how to avoid that impression
  • Where to meet women
  • Dating multiple women while keeping drama to a minimum
  • How to rock the bedroom, how to deal with ED, and why porn will mess up your social life
  • Carrying a relationship into the long term in harmony
  • Avoiding common marital problems

The secrets of the pickup artists are revealed:

  • Adapting your approach for every situation
  • Developing unique and creative openers
  • Putting the best spin on conversations
  • Showing that you’re a cut above the competition
  • Flipping the script to have her chasing you
  • The art of flirtatious teasing
  • Directly showing interest the right way
  • How to interpret and deal with a hostile reaction
  • Discerning interest and disinterest and how to give these subtle cues yourself
  • Using humorous audacity to create attraction
  • Using the effect of popularity to make you a hot commodity
  • Dealing with “cock-blockers”: other suitors, jealous friends, etc.
  • Why women chicken out in the bedroom and how to save the situation gracefully

Discover all this and more! Take the Red Pill, find out how the game really works, and move your social life into the fast lane.

Book announcement – Righteous Seduction: Redemption for “Nerds”, Unappreciated Nice Guys, and Captives of the Friend Zone

Hello world!

Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Rainbow Albrecht. I was a love child from the ’60s, and technically a red diaper baby. My views diverged from those of my parents, much to their horror, and in fact I most certainly enjoyed watching Red Dawn and Rambo II on the big screen. I’m into fantasy and science fiction, as well as lots of rather obscure stuff: Thelema, Distributism, linguistics (ancient Gothic for the win!), Romanian history, Russian novels, etc. I’m currently in the IT industry, and I spend much of my free time on creative writing. Lately I have brought some projects to fruition. I have a number of books online, and several in the pipeline, which I might tell you about later. Thus far, these are:


Dark Horse Rising: Charles Manson on the Campaign trail

This one, unexpectedly my highest-selling title, is an alternate history. The murders for which Charles Manson is now imprisoned never took place, and instead, this vibrant icon of the late 1960s becomes a rock star. Later, he enters the 1980 Presidential race and Ronald Reagan mysteriously disappears. If you’re a bit fed up with the Presidential king-making process, or partisan politics in general, this might-have-been will give you some food for thought.

The new and unexpected candidate lacks political experience, which Manson’s critics are quick to point out. But some analysts observe that this might work in his favor. His backers contend that he will breathe fresh air into American politics and lift the country out of the Carter administration’s “malaise”. Even after six years, the Watergate scandal still lingers painfully in the public consciousness. Some say that Charles Manson could win the election by earning the trust, faith, and confidence that many voters lack in career politicians.

Safe and Secure in Atropia

The encroachment on freedom isn’t always as heavy-handed as in totalitarian societies abroad, such as North Korea, or the USSR back in the day. Actually, it might be as nearby as the homeowner’s association running your gated community and charging you a hefty monthly fee for the privilege. This is a fairly off-the-wall satire about money-grubbing bureaucratic control freaks, and one family’s struggle against them.

“Think of all those science fiction stories where the machines rise up and conquer humanity. We can’t stop them because they’re powerful, they have no fear, they feel no pain, and they’re nearly indestructible. This was the nightmare scenario from Rossum’s Universal Robots all the way up to the Terminator movies. But the way the future really turned out is that you bureaucrats let yourselves be controlled by some database application.”

Date Expectations

The main character is a slob with no social life who is stuck in a dead-end job. He answers an ad for “Simulacrum Spanish Fly” and ends up getting a hell of a lot more than he was expecting! The underlying themes are degeneracy and the often futile struggle for upward mobility. You might also get a kick out of it if you’ve ever had a boss who thought he was the Pharaoh of Egypt because he was one rung higher than you on the totem pole. The kernel of the story came to me some time in the late ’80s, after incredulously looking at the ads in the back of Hustler. So let it not be said that this fine periodical has never been a source of inspiration.

“I ordered some Spanish Fly. When it comes in, I’ll sit next to Miss Prim and Proper over there.” He pointed to Julie. “Then when she’s not looking, I’ll spike her coffee. By the end of the day, she’ll be a Wild, Horny Nympho.” He remembered this romantic turn of phrase from the ad copy. “Then Mr. Wonderful’s gonna ask her out on a date.” He smiled wickedly.

Space Vixen Trek Episode 4.135667: Walking the Planck, sub figura XVI

A young engineer, struggling financially and under the thumb of a controlling wife, goes for a little trip to space with his best friend. Then, the navigational computer gets a Blue Screen Of Death, extending their three hour tour. Other than that, space pirates – enough said!

“Yeah, you could say that. This is the Gaping Void; the Intergalactic Chasm. Great idea, huh?” Albert pointed to the Orion Arm. “If we had a really good telescope, in another hundred thousand years, we might witness a very clever homo erectus banging two rocks together and inventing fire. Imagine that – and it’s all been downhill since then. But, they don’t make telescopes that good, and out here we’re not even gonna last until next semester’s registration deadline.”

Space Vixen Trek Episode 13: The Final Falafel

Two friends, a nerd and a jock, are talking on the phone until missionaries show up at their doors, Mormons on bikes and Christian fundamentalists passing out tracts. The result is that the nerd enthusiastically discovers his Jewish heritage and the jock becomes a Quran-thumping Muslim. The teenagers decide to take a trip to Jerusalem for their summer vacation, of course. A dweeby classmate of theirs is going as well, a hard-boiled agnostic forced by his parents to participate in the “Putting The Fun In Fundamentalism” tour. He’s off his meds and soon declares himself to be the Second Coming. After a series of whacky misadventures, the two friends discover a secret plot that threatens the fate of the world. This story takes the Blazing Saddles approach to religion and pulls no punches; it’s not for the easily offended.

They began a long shouting match covering many enlightening subjects: the Palestinian Intifada, the Israeli occupation of Gaza and the West Bank, how OPEC’s price fixing harmed the American economy, how the Israeli lobby huggermuggered and scarum-shouted Congress into the Gulf War, the moral equivalence of the Munich Olympic Massacre by Palestinian terrorists and the Israeli sneak attack on the USS Liberty, the moral equivalence of gay for pay and being a celebrity gigolo, several particulars in the Bro Code (quite pointedly), epistemology, scriptural hermeneutics, the fine distinction between Talmudic hair-splitting and Talmudic nit-picking, and Islamic potty rules.

Righteous Seduction: Redemption for Nerds, Unappreciated Nice Guys, and Captives of the Friend Zone

In my only nonfiction title thus far, I discuss how the sexual revolution has vastly changed the dating scene. Any guy who doesn’t know the real rules of the game will be woefully unprepared, like a knight in shining armor amidst a tank battle. The social environment as it is now is pretty grim, but correct knowledge will lead you to the front of the pack. This isn’t your average “how to pick up chicks” book; it pulls no punches, but is among the enlightened offerings of seduction literature.  It also uniquely includes helpful historical and philosophical items describing what it means to be a man in today’s world. This also has an in-depth analysis of the Friend Zone problem and what to do about it; if you keep getting cast as the “boyfriend without benefits”, this one’s for you.

“Men only want one thing” – you’ve heard that one before, right? I’m going to let you in on a little secret, something that is very good news for you. Women want it too! Perhaps you might doubt this, if you’ve been shot down quite a few times, listened to preachers denouncing the sins of the flesh, or ever been forced to read Andrea Dworkin (or others of that ilk). Well, I have news for you: women do get horny like we do, and they love sex! As Ovid put it, “Man is a poor dissembler; woman is much more skillful in concealing her desire.” Although so much has changed so rapidly, that one’s still true two thousand years later!

My flagship product is the Space Vixen Trek series. In addition to the two online, I have several others in the works. This always includes a super-intelligent nerd and his jock buddy. You’ve met these two many times before.  Sometimes the jock’s girlfriend(s), their classmates, or their comrades in arms are along for the ride too. Their adventures typically include fighting off icky aliens, saving the world, and other cool stuff like that. I experiment with different genres, and in many cases I’m pretending to write from a certain time period, so the stories often have plenty of retro-futuristic nostalgia. It’s cheesy by design, since I take great pleasure in breaking stylistic rules and smashing the Fourth Wall to bits.
