Want a book for the holidays?

This isn’t a real post.  It’s just a quick note to tell you that I’m going to meet the lovely people from BookPeople tomorrow in a parking lot to sign all of the books you might want personalized for Christmas/Hanukkah/Festivus/Flying Spaghetti Monster week.  If you want one for yourself or for a gift make sure you call or order online by tomorrow morning so they bring enough.  Also, I will be happy to write “Knock knock mofo” or “Thank you for burying that body” or “I’ll always remember that night in Vegas” or “This is the best gift ever” or whatever else.  They have copies of Let’s Pretend This Never Happened and Furiously Happy.  Just click to order.

(To order a signed copy of a book, place the book in your cart and indicate “SIGNED COPY” and write the name of whoever you want it made out to in the comments.  They ship worldwide.)

PS. I don’t get anything extra out of doing this.  I just like to give everyone the chance to get a signed copy even if they can’t ever (or don’t want to) go to a signing.  Plus, it’s from an independent bookstore and that’s always a plus.

PPS.  Later tonight if I can get my shit together we’re going to start the James Garfield miracle.  More to come.

  1. So many folks forget Festivus this time of year, but it’s important to remember that it’s a festival of inclusion. Be sure to talk backwards and shake the ear of a Festivusser at least twice this season, or the Festivus Handsom Living Cell Phone may come calling…

    I’m guessing asking for it to be signed in bull’s blood in honor of Festival of Dies Natalis Solis Invicti might be a little out of line.

The first story I ever read of yours was the “Knock knock mofo” on CakeWrecks recommendation and I love that you included that as an option for the inscription! 🙂

  28. I bought “Let’s Pretend This Never Happened” years ago on a whim from a display when the cover caught me eye. I was in a deep depressive state and went into the book store only to buy a crossword puzzle book to while away the hours on the couch. Your book was so funny I ended up reading aloud about 3/4 of it to my husband and we both laughed until we cried. For making me laugh when nothing else could make me even get out of bed (which is where I read the book to him at night) you have a fan for LIFE. I thank you from the bottom of my heart and soul. THANK YOU. I was so excited when I discovered that you had a blog I ran downstairs to tell my husband and tripped over the dog. My man understood my excitement but when I tried to explain it to the dog she felt it was just no excuse for my behaviour. I had to bribe her forgiveness with treats. And now, every time I so much as brush up against her on the way downstairs she heads for the fucking Liver Treats in the corner and gives me the look that says, “Well? You owe me at least 4.5 for that one.”

    I do want a book, I do I do! I still need Furiously Happy, and it would tickle me to get a signed version. I have wishlisted it for the I don’t remember how many times time, though, and just in case someone who asked for a wishlist follows through and gets it for me, I shouldn’t order it for myself. Ahh well. I have every confidence that fabulous you will continue to write fantabulous books, and that I will want them, so there will be other chances to covet them and attempt to be vaguely practical and covetous at the same time.

    Also, I am so excited for James Garfield’s annual miracle! ❤

  33. James Garfield helped us last year. We had just escaped an abusive home under my ex husband, were living in a woman’s shelter, and I was trying to finish my masters. I had hoped to be able to pay it forward this year, but I still haven’t found a job in my field, so until then we are on my little-bit-more-than-minimum wage. (On a separate note, if any one in the Midwest knows of a postition for an MA in History with a focus one early human civilization, email me!) This is a list I put together of things that the kids would love. Sofi is my two year old who is crazy about stuffed animals, and Elijah is 4 and craving any sort of robot/mechanical thing he can get his hands on. They both love books and being read to as well. I’m hoping to homeschool them (Elijah is on the spectrum) so there’s a lesson plan book on the list as well. Thank you, everyone. From the bottom of my heart.

  34. I’m buying the books for my daughter Mim, because the post where you did an entire conversation with Victor using nothing but GIFs made her spew tea out of her nose. I’m hoping the books will do the same thing only over and over again. Because I’m a terrible mother. And also because I love sharing laughter.

  43. This is been a tough year for me and my family. I have recently become disabled and do not have the funds to put presents under the tree this year. As a single mom providing for older children on very a limited budget has made Christmas impossible. I tried to get us adopted locally but all charities were full. My wish list was things my children asked for but anything that you could help with. Would be mean the world to us. Hope you have a Merry Christmas
