UDATED! FREAKING. OUT.

This is supposed to be a post about how awesome sharks are but I can’t even do it because OHMYGODYOUGUYSMYBOOKISHERE.  And MY AUDIO BOOK TOO.  Sorry for all the screaming but I just got the final, hardback version that comes out next month and then I screamed a little because this is a decade in the making and also because OHMYGODYOUGUYS it comes out next month.

Sorry.  I’m geeking out in an incredibly embarrassing fashion but I can’t help it and you’ve been with me through this entire process so I want to celebrate with you.

So to celebrate I’m giving away an autographed copy of my book and of the audiobook too.  Just leave a comment and this week one of you will be randomly selected to win this:

Not the cat butt. That's mine.

And in related, panic-inducing news, I’m going on tour.  Much like Bon Jovi.  Or like artifacts from terrible disasters.

Details below! (Graphic courtesy of my amazing friend, Len):

Click on the graphic for details and ticket info. More locations might be coming soon. I'll keep you posted.

Come?  Pretty please?

UPDATED:  WE have a winner!  Leigh-Ellen of Canada, a book is on its way to you.  And a huge thank you for such an amazing show of support.  I so love you guys.

  8. OMG! That’s so amazing. An evening of entertainment with The Bloggess! Such a shame I can’t go. But I have bullied my local library into putting a copyof the book on order.

  9. Furiously happy for you! I can’t wait to read your book….and listen to it. I might have to do both at the same time. Is that allowed?

  10. Booktour nowhere near me. Sad panda. I even have a nice large bathroom with a smaller toliet closet off of it to hide in.

  11. April 28, I’m so there!

  12. I did my own reading on the audio book. I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.

  21. I love how your book & audio book coordinate with both the material they’re resting on AND your cat’s ass. That’s pretty fucking perfect. Everything looks beautiful, so excited for you! :D

  22. That is awesome! Congrats! (You can keep cat butt.)

  23. Brilliant news! Huge congratulations x

  24. you should come to boston, too! and bring juanita, she will make an awesome tour mascot…

  25. So happy for you! I’d love to win a copy. Looks hilarious!

  26. OMG! So very happy for you…and proud of you too! As an author in waiting I know how much energy and yourself goes into getting the words out onto the paper. Now you just need to come to Ottawa, Canada for a book signing!! I’ll be buying multiple copies for girlfriend gifts since my friends and I are just as crazy as you claim to be…so that must make us all normal, right???

I’d ask you to come to my town, too, but I can’t imagine how hard making the tour nationwide would be on you with your anxiety issues and your probable desire to parent your daughter and not have a major autoimmune flair-up and such. So instead I’ll just say GOOD FOR YOU! I love it when people who deserve to succeed do just that :)

  188. What?! TWO Texas dates and not ONE Boston date?

    We’re WAY more fucked up here in Boston. What with our ‘4 seasons’ and ‘accents’ and ‘sports teams that win things’ – we’d really appreciate a date more than San Antonio. Seriously, San Antonio sounds like the character in a romance novel. I suggest you switch.

  207. I am quite certain that taxidermied animals dressed up in costumes await you in the mile high city of Denver, if you could include us on the book tour. Along with transplanted Texans (NOT taxidermied). Basically, Denver is like home, with less bugs and better hair :-)

  216. I really wish I could see the tour – seriously you should go international and come to the UK.It’s like a colder, smaller, damper, armadilloless, not very Texan version of Texas with a little old blinged out German lady running the show. Bring a woolly jumper and I’ll bring the tea (obviously by tea I mean hard liquor).

    But if the temptation of visiting a country whose national plant is dry rot fungus can’t persuade you to hop on a plane, then at least make sure your tour organisers dress the stage like a nice friendly bathroom so you can hide from *and* perform to your fans.

  217. Congratulations! Can’t wait to read it!

  218. Love it! But pretty please add Maine? No? Too out of the way? How about Boston then? I am there much of the time at Childrens Hospital with my youngest so I could just tell the nurses, “Hey, look, you watch her for a while, The Bloggess is coming and it’s all about priorities!” Then I would return to CPS and interviews with social workers but it would all be worth it because I would have gotten to meet “One of the weirdest people I know”. That is a quote that my oldest once said to her uncle (in the most adoring way so that is how you need to picture me saying it). Believe me, it is a HUGE compliment in my family! So yeah, in case by now you’ve forgotten my original point, come to Maine….or Boston!

    You should make a tour up to the UP of MI so you can make fun of our hickness. I’m sure it would be endlessly entertaining.

    So excited to get your book, I preordered it a while ago (and stupidly ordered a CD from Amazon at the same time, and they’re both being shipping together, so I’ve had to wait two months for the CD. OH WELL).
    The closest place you’re coming on tour to where I live is New York… and that’s over a five hour drive for me. :( Booo. I hope you add more locations, such as maybe D.C? -hinthint-

  235. How does your cat know you every time you take out the camera? I’m really baffled by it.

    Oh, and if you make a swing thru Nashville, all of my friends and I would definitely come see ya! Would you mind if I joined you in the bathroom?? I’m a guy so that might make it creepy though I really hope not. :-)

    If you cloned yourself so you did not have to continue your tour when you get tired of it, your clone would probably be the one not to tour. And then the second clone would keep that clone company in your real life. So just put that out of your mind.

  505. While I recognize that I live in the ass-end of nowhere, I’d LOVE it if you came to Lafayette, Indiana. You could howl at the moon with the wolves here. (I’m serious). You could…um, I’m out. That’s about the only interesting thing we do here, unless you’re into small-time college football or chain restaurants. (I’ll also point out that the howling at the moon thing was all my mother could focus on when we told her we were moving here and supported her fear that midwesterners eat their young. Even though wolves don’t, as far as I understand it. I’m really not a wolfologist, even though I live in such close proximity to groups of people who regularly go howl with them. In any case, I’m not sure that Mom’s fear was entirely rational.)

    Looking back over what I’ve written so far, I don’t think I’ve done a great job of selling you on a stop in Lafayette. But anywhere in the midwest that’s within a 4-5 hour drive would be awesome. And I speed, so that opens the radius somewhat.

  506. Congratulations! Thanks for the give away, but I REALLY wanted the cat butt to be included, too. :-( I suppose I could settle for just the book/audiobook.

  509. Congratulations! What are you going to do on your tour? I’m picturing a David Sedaris style reading, but only for small groups in bookstore bathrooms… It sounds amazing. Bathroom acoustics are incredible.

  510. So awesome! I’m really happy for you. I already pre-ordered, but if I win this I can give my pre-order copy to an unsuspecting family member, thus expanding your empire. Fan base. Minions. Whatever.

    Lastly, Congrats on your book! I just ordered it earlier this week. Now you have me intrigued with your audio book, though…..

  517. Very exciting, congrats!

  523. PLEASE come to Washington, DC. If you do, I will be there with BELLS ON. Literally, I will wear bells. And then every time I laugh, I will tinkle too. It will be AWESOME.

  524. I, of course, want your magnificent book AND audiobook but the second my cat saw your cat butt…well…let’s just say she’s a brazen hussy.

  525. Congratulations!!

  526. That is so.freaking.awesome!! You deserve much success and if the whole book is as amazingly hilarious as the excerpt shared about HR then this will be funniest, most awesome book ever!! CONGRATS!

  527. Congratulations! Good luck with the tour. If I was still in Texas and not in Virginia, I would totally be there. But I will send my friends.

  528. Yes! But why aren’t you coming to Kansas City?!?
    COME TO KANSAS CITY!!!

  529. YAY!! Come to Kansas, and I would be willing to go on hunts for taxidermided ferrets with you!

  533. Ok wait, that comment made it sound like I would pee if you came to Washington DC. That is not what I meant. (Although to be honest it’s not entirely out of the realm of possibility). Don’t let that stop you though!

  534. So excited for you!! My first book is coming out next week and I’ve been jumping up and down ever since I got to see the first yes-it-looks-just-like-a-book proof. Ask my friends…they are all deaf from the screaming.

  535. First, Would LOVE an autographed book, and second, wish you were coming somewhere like Chicago, Minneapolis/St. Paul, or Madison! Come visit us in the north, we’re fun!

  536. If you came to Michigan, I would SO come see you! I can’t wait to read the book tho! (A signed copy would be great!)

    Also- Yay cat butts! Although I’m glad you’re not giving the cat butt away because if I won it I’d be sad because my cat butt would probably eat your cat butt. I live in a one cat butt household.

    Also, I just said cat butt* five times. I think that’s some sort of record.

    *Six if you count this one.

    Dear Jenny,

    1) Please visit Atlanta on your book tour. 2) If this comment wins your book give away, please donate the prize to some loyal reader who is having trouble affording you book (my copy is long ago ordered from Amazon).

  555. Where’s your Philly date? We love you in Philly. We’re a city, too…right? (okay, I used to live in New York, so city…not so much) but come on! I know that the dates you already have are going to be hard enough for you, but I was so hoping that I could get to see you and maybe even meet you in person. I have struggled with depression and anxiety my whole life and I am so inspired by what you’ve been able to do, especially that its not totally in spite of, but by embracing those parts of you (plus some in spite of, it seems). Rock on, woman!

  556. WOO HOO!!!! I can’t wait for my copy to get here. I am really, really looking forward to reading it! :D

    Come to Pittsburgh, PA or someplace which isn’t as nice but is within reasonable driving distance of where I live. Not that I’m selfish or anything. In fact, I will unselfishly fill my car with several friends who are also big fans of yours, and bring them with me. Just for you.

  567. Minnesota – come to Minnesota! We have the nicest bathrooms. Ok, maybe not, but they probably rank somewhere in the top 10…or 20. Definitely nicer than Tennesee and South Dakota, that’s for sure.

    I am so excited for you book to be released! Good luck on your tour!

    I got mine on order and hope to get one of your furiously signed bookplates too! I won’t be able to see you but if you get sidetracked to Madison, WI somehow I’ve got two cat butts and a basement bathroom waiting for you. Um, sorry, that sounds creepy…..

  569. I can’t wait to read it! You need add a stop in Florida to your tour! Me and my curlers will be first in line. Congratulations and best wishes for all the more fabulous things I know are in your future.

  570. CONGRATULATIONS! I am so excited to get my grabby hands on that sucker next month and read my face off. Not like “Face-Off” the movie, though. No one wants Nic Cage to show up when they’re reading. That would be just the worst.

  605. I’m beyond thrilled for you! Reading your big has made me such a huge fan but also care about you and your struggles and your successes like my own. You are completely amazing and I can’t wait to read your book that I’ve had pre ordered since early December!!

    Sandy recently posted Assuming The Position.

  609. I second (or probably 10th at this point) coming to Chicago, or better yet, Minneapolis. It’s a great place to visit 5 months out of the year. We only have blizzards in April on very rare occasions. By May you are (usually!) safe.
    I’m so thrilled to get the audio version of your book. I have a feeling it’s going to be like David Sedaris’ books – once you listen to one you can never read them on your own. Half the enjoyment comes from hearing him read the story. I’m purposefully scheduling a road trip after I get your book so I can listen without interruption.

  610. That is AAA AWESOME!!!! If I were randomly chosen to receive this most precious book I would immediately share it with my AAA Awesome friend Kate, and revel in the book I’ve already pre-ordered. Just sayin…I give books, like crazy.

    Oh and please come to Canada. We’re nice up here. Honest.

  612. Looking forward to seeing you in Dallas.

  613. Hey Jenny, do you ship international? ;-)

  616. And Boston, we have…the Freedom Trail? Can’t WAIT to read the book.

  617. I can’t wait to read it!! So sad you’re not coming near North Carolina.

  618. 1. I would love a signed anything from you.
    2. You deserve every success there is to have.
    3. The thought of you going on book tour had never occurred to me; I now realize if I went I would suddenly shake and wheeze and meet you with ugly tears and nose bubbles. You know. Like a freak. So please take my absence as an affirmation of my liking you. Cause you don’t need to see that.

    PS, do you sell Beyonce bookmarks? I am going to check your store. Cause that’d be awesome.

  619. Congrats! See you in NY

  620. Amazing! The entire office will be jealous when the book arrives. We are planning a luncheon to go and retrieve the book (should it not arrive early)… on a patio somewhere that we can read aloud, so all of the patrons can enjoy the humor that is you. Thanks! Keep writing…

    I would so bring you nachos under the table, if you came to Boston. I’d even bring you some to New York, if I wasn’t going to be in Flrida that week. So Please Please consider oming o Boston. I’ll make the achos myself and we can hide under the table together.

  696. Woo hoo! That’s awesome. (The cat butt is awesome, too.) Hope to see you in Austin in April!
