My Book is Available for Pre-Order

I wrote a book. It’s nearly 300 pages long, so every English teacher I ever had can seriously go suck it because I HAVE MET ALL THE MINIMUM WORD COUNT REQUIREMENTS.

(Just kidding, English teachers. You made me who I am.)

And it’s now available for pre-order on Amazon, BarnesandNoble.com, and Indiebound. Real, reputable websites are carrying my book, y’all.

It’s called All Over the Place: Adventures in True Love, Travel, and Petty Theft. Personally, I think I could have done a lot more revenge thieving during my travels if my true love hadn’t intervened, but I suppose that’s another story.

I dedicated my book to Jeff Goldblum and there’s an entire chapter about poop.

It won’t be released until May, but you could still buy it as a Christmas or Hanukkah gift and have it arrive really late. The recipient will probably be a little annoyed this holiday season but come spring they are going to love your forward-thinking ass.

Anyway, I made a book, and I’ve been thinking about making another one. How are you?

  • Congratulations! I’ve read a couple of David Sedaris’s books and the ONLY story I can recall off-hand is one about poop, so I take this as a good omen for yours. (I also see you’ve published another post about staying creative during dark times — I’m saving that one for my coffee tomorrow. It is MUCH needed, so thank you in advance!)

    I’m too excited for this. The great debate is hard copy so I could eventually stalk you for an autograph or the instant gratification of Kindle delivery on the day of release. Decisions, decisions….

    I CAN NOT WAIT.

  • Ellie

    This makes me so happy!!! Am buying it as a Christmas gift for myself.

  • Can’t wait to read it 🙂

    Can. Not. Wait. To read it and more importantly buy and give it as a present.

    I’m pretty perfect but somedays, you know…. anyway I am loving the Christmas feeling thanks to Coca Cola, decorations, fairy lights and the prospect of over eating to distract myself from 2016. How’s life with you?

    Yayyy!!! Sharing the link to everyone and pre-ordering one for myself! This is the best thing I could have read on a dreary Monday afternoon.

    Congratulations! I have always wanted to write a book. I suppose I have written many books (tomes, volumes, exhaustive and exhausting works), worth of content over the past several years and so it is encouraging to see someone who has made it a reality. Good for you! I will have to check it out.

  • I first met Chad around the time I had brain surgery. He'd just gone through the same experience with a very different diagnosis. He went on to have SIX more brain surgeries and was part of a litany of clinical trials for his brain cancer. Through it all he was funny and brash and so painfully honest about his experience. He was also instrumental in helping me finish my book - I sent Chad a chapter every month while working on my manuscript. He joked that I'd enlisted a dying man to help me meet my deadline. I hadn't emailed him in months, and just found out today that he passed away right before Christmas. It was a long time coming, but I am still blindsided by the loss.

Goodbye you wonderful, brilliant, exuberant asshole. I knew you'd break my heart.
