FURIOUSLY HAPPY TOUR

BIG ANNOUNCEMENT, Y’ALL!  I’M TURNING INTO A BADGER.

Wait.  No.  That’s not it.  I’m coming to your town to sign your books.  ALL OF YOUR BOOKS!  And your babies.  Whatever does it for you.  Put a blanket (or a load of warm cats) on your sofa because I’m on the way to see you.  Or I will be in four months.  If you live in one of the towns I’m going to, that is.  If you don’t then you should move.  You have four months.

Here’s where I’m going:

official furiously happy tour poster

The devil and the details:
9/23 Austin Bookpeople 7pm
9/25 Houston, Blue Willow 6pm
9/26 Dallas, Half Price Books 3pm
9/29 Atlanta, A Cappella Books 7pm
9/30 Nashville, Parnassus 6:15pm
10/3 Miami, Books & Books (Coral Gables) 7pm
10/10 Huntsville, Alabama Rocket City Lit Fest  11am
10/12 Washington, DC Politics & Prose 7pm
10/15 NYC Barnes & Noble/ Union Square 6pm
10/17 Boston, Porter Square 6pm
10/20 Toronto, Indigo Manulife 7pm
10/23 Dayton, Books&Co 7pm
10/25 Chicago, Women & Children First 4pm
10/27 Milwaukee, Boswell Book Company 6:30pm

12/4 Santa Cruz, Bookshop Santa Cruz 7pm
12/6 Los Angeles, Vroman’s 4pm
12/7 Tempe Changing Hands 7pm

(You can preorder my book at any of the above places.  I’m pretty sure that supporting independent bookstores – especially ones that host dangerously strange authors and their friends – gives you extra karma points in your next life.)

Please come.  Say you’ll come.  I can’t do this alone.

I’m working on a few other things that might work for you if none of those cities do so I’ll keep you posted.  Do you want an autographed copy of FURIOUSLY HAPPY right now?  Me too, but I don’t have one.  But leave a comment and if you’re selected I will send you one for free in September.  I’m totally good for it.  Or I’ll give you a signed copy of my last book right now if you’d rather have that.  Your choice.  Just tell me in the comments.  I’m totally flexible.

PS.  For real, I may need a sofa and some cats.  Or a bag of hedgehogs and some tater tots.  Depends on my plans.  I’ll keep you posted.

PPS.  Are you asking yourself “When did she write a new book?  Who is that raccoon?  Where even am I?” then you need to start here.  It’s fine.  We’ll wait.

Threw away my signed copy of “Let’s Pretend” I was in KC and it was one of the top most best 10 days of my life, meeting you hearing your read being touched byt the same struggle. and i was with my best girls. Later i found out we were on board with #3,(i can’t help being irresistible, and the swimmer slipped through the goalie) we had to move bc we exceeded the capacity of our home well I’m 9 mths pregnant. So my husband purged the following in the move. I could not help as i was working and he is a Stay at home dad with 3 kids and I’m the bread winner. So he tossed the following: 2 dressers since we not have closets, book shelf, about 30 kids books, toys, bikes, lawn furniture, waffle iron, food processor, my jewelry box with jewelry in it, coats, clothing, toys, wedding bands and engagement ring, and most important MY SIGNED COPY OF LETS PRETEND.I didn’t even finish it. i mean one cant Laugh out loud without peeeing. So I will be in Minneapolis to see you to replace my most prized possession.

    I have two spotted leopard geckos. They are not warm and fuzzy. They are reptilely and a bit cold and their fingernails are prickly and they lick their eye balls and sleep all day. If they get scared, they drop their tails. I have not seen them do this yet, but I’ve heard it’s quite impressive to see a detached tail jerking all around going, “Hey! Look at me! Try and eat me! Don’t eat that gecko that is running away because that part doesn’t taste good. But I’m delicious, so nibble on me!” Actually a friend said it happened to her gecko and she said it was pretty disgusting to watch a twitching tail and then it took months for the new tail to grow back. I do have a couch, though! And a blanket. I’d recommend putting the blanket on your arms before letting the geckos walk on you so it’s less prickly. And I promise they only lick their own eye balls. That would be one humdinger of a greeting…. “Nice to meet you! Ok, would you please take off your glasses?” LICK Maybe it’s best if I just leave them in their tanks while you are visiting.🙂

I’m so close you could totally hang out at my house before the event, I have 2 acres and my neighbors have annoying chickens, It would be just like Texas. My dog is super shy so she will let you pet eventually.
    Super Super excited. I will bring jam.

Anyway, I’ve preordered your new book (to go along with my two copies of the old one, because I needed to have hardcover and paperback), but I would prefer a signed copy if you can make that happen …

I am making plans to see you in Minneapolis in November. If my grandpa dies and I have to cancel again I call witchcraft. And why do you have it out for my family?

I am 45 now and am concerned about the freshness date of my eggs, but for you, I will give it a go.
    After careful consideration, I have realized that I do not own or have access to a TARDIS or the ability to fuck with the space-time continuum and the absolute best I could do by November is offer a gestational cocoon, which is a poor substitute as it lacks the ‘wow factor” of the recently emerged or that new baby smell(poop and vomit)(hopefully).
    I will consider your hedgehog counter-offer if you can give me a number amount for ‘a bag’. I don’t think I can go any lower than four because three’s a crowd, but four’s a party. Although, a party may not quite what you’re looking for. It’s less of a chill party where you drink wine and talk shit with your homies and more of a snarling pile of stabbing prickles and teeth of fury. But, with party hats.

I rescued her from an animal shelter as a 5 week old baby. She had ringworm (which I got too from her), a fever, respiratory infection, diarrhea, you name it. She has been one big vet bill. I would love to say here that she returns it all with her undying love, but really she just terrorizes my dog and bites me when I try to pet her.

    We have nine cats in our house, and three we’d be okay with parting with, so I can definitely send you some if you want. However, one is what we’ve termed a periphery cat, which means she is always the furthest away from you and as close to the wall as possible at all times, so she might not help your warm sofa needs.

    I’m going to try my hardest to meet you in Houston in September. And, as I’m a super-poor college student (living with my mom in my mid-30s which I’m still trying to bend my ego around), I’d love a free copy of your book, especially autographed by you. I loved your first one and I go back to it every time I get depressed (bipolar can occasionally seriously suck like that) because it makes me laugh until I cry, have an asthma attack, or pee a little–or a combination of them. I just realized I used parentheses twice in this three (now four) sentence paragraph. (Shit, now it’s four parentheses in five sentences.)

  721. I live in Austin during the week. I have a couch there and no animals at all, but I do have a really nice apartment with a huge porch and the whole place is on a hillside, up in the trees. It’s highly likely that I’ll be at the book signing in Austin. Just because I was at your last signing in Austin that does not constitute stalking, so it’s totally OK for you to crash on my couch, even though I realize it’s not that far from Austin to your own bed.

    I also live in Houston on weekends (although to be totally accurate, I live on a couple of acres in the boondocks west of Houston) in a nice Victorian home. I have a big couch there along with 4 dogs and 4 cats (although you’ll probably only see 2 of the cats). I’ll be in Houston when you’re doing your signing there, and if I don’t make it to the Austin signing, I’ll be at the Houston one. You’re more than welcome to crash on my couch in Houston, too / instead. I’d offer you my daughter’s room, but the backhoe rental to clean it out before you arrive might be too much.

    So – I can offer you someplace to stay for two subsequent signings. And both for the low, low discount price of free.

    I’m a sheep rancher in central Montana. Last night at 3:00 a.m. I thought of you while attempting to jug a ewe and her lambs (put them in a small pen). She entered the pen, but when I tried to sneak up to close the gate she ran at the opening (which I was in), and we went over backward in a strange wrestling match. I ended up on my back, bear hugging a 170 lb. sheep on top of me. As I contemplated my next move, I thought of you and how your first book made me feel more normal. Thank you.

  797. Oh my heck, I would love for you to sign my baby!!! Or a copy of your last book, whichever, since it’s my favorite book ever and I recommend it to everyone, in a very unsolicited way. I just think everyone needs to belly laugh in public, private, and in between.🙂

  798. Hi, Jenny! I’d like to throw my name into the hat for a signed copy of your first book, since I’m donating my copy to my soon-to-be-installed Little Free Library (which is not as spectacular as your TARDIS library, but I’m crazy-excited about it anyway). When the new book comes out I’ll put that in the library too, once I read it🙂 A friend sent me Let’s Pretend This Never Happened while I was trudging through a particularly shitty period of Mental Health Shit, and more than drugs or therapy or “centering myself through breathing” in yoga (eye roll) you and your writing made things measurably less shitty. Or made the shit easier to navigate. We’re talking about metaphorical shit, here, obviously. Anyway, I hope someone else will find your book(s) in my library at a time when they really need it.

    Also, come to North Carolina?

    I bought your first book, before you added the last chapter, so this would make us even?

    I’m just really glad to see the dates spread our a bit and some time off between different legs of the tour. I think it may help keep you from being so exhausted/depressed at the end. Either you are looking out for you or someone else made sure. Either way, I’m glad. And if I can actually get out if the house and make it to Book People, I’ll be there.

    Hi.

    So I jist about peed my pants when I read that you were coming to Nashville.

    Do you know what this means? You will be in my city!!!! Not only that, I will get to meet people of our tribe right here at home. That honestly makes me tear up. The likelihood of you actually reading through the 800 comments on here is rare, I’m sure. But just know, Ive had a super hard week, like almost back to the hospital bad. And this has made me smile! Thank you for that.

    And if you need/want to hang out or sleep over, Im game. I can totally cook dinner or something. I have no cats cause I’m kinda deathly allergic to them, but i do have two dogs, groucho and harpo (I need three more to have the whole set, but the hubs says no.)

    Anyway, you made my day so much brighter, as always. Thank you.

    You signed my baby last time in Boston. He’s not a baby anymore, so I’ll probably leave him at home this go-round.🙂 I plan on being there, but I wouldn’t turn down a copy in September in case the sitter cancels or something. You know how it goes.

  814. I’ll see you in December in Tempe. Or in my home, where you are welcome to stay during your time in the Phoenix area. I have a very comfy couch with cat hair on it (and a live cat that supplies that hair), anxiety meds and a husband who is used to driving around a woman who is often afraid to leave the house.

Which is in September, so whoop!Also, consider coming to Anchorage, you have plenty of fans here & the overall lack of big city feeling (and how easily you can get away from people) might be good for your anxiety.😉 There are large taxidermied animals everywhere (including right in the airport) so you should feel right at home.😉
