Want a signed copy of YOU ARE HERE?

Last night was the first stop on the YOU ARE HERE book tour and it was amazing!  Thanks so much if you came out.  It was terrifying until I looked out at a sea of people who looked equally terrified and then we all laughed and it was awesome.

I asked everyone to take a picture of themselves cradling an invisible baby raccoon and they were like, “You’re weird but we support you.”

Also, I signed an extra 100 copies of YOU ARE HERE at BookPeople in Austin and they will ship them anywhere so if you can’t make it on a stop and you want a signed copy you can get one while they last here.  Just type in “SIGNED COPY” in the comments field during checkout.

BOOKS!

Next stop, New Orleans!

    I’m glad that Austin went well. And it’s important to know how to cradle baby raccoons. You might find one in the forest and have to save it. (It’s more likely to be near the garbage cans, but forest sounds better). I have decided that the best thing to do is get two copies of your book – one to color and one to keep. So a signed copy sounds pretty awesome.
    And I’m not a huge fan of coloring, but I have been checking out glittery gel pens on Amazon!

    Have fun in New Orleans. I think they start out wierder (in a good way) than many people, so you should see some wonderful wierd people. We are strange in Minnesota, but differently from NOLA, not that we’re competing.

  15. Jenny. My book came last night. I stood at the counter in my kitchen and read it for over an hour. I kept running my fingers over the drawings and the words. It made me cry. I know how many people this book is helping as much as it helped me. I spent the evening colouring raindrops and smiling. Yesterday was a good day but I know there will be hard days again and I’m glad to have this book on my nightstand. Thank you.

  20. It was fun hearing you speak last night! Thank you for being yourself and sharing your uniqueness. This is a worrisome time for me, but you make me laugh and that is so priceless. Also, I was laid off from my job in October and have been searching for my next adventure since then, without success. Yet. I had my previous job for 12 years, and although I worked hard, I often felt like I had wandered into the wrong party. In meetings I began to doodle….similar in some ways to what you do when you draw. It was frankly my favorite part of those meetings-it was like the real me was finding a way to keep me company…if that makes sense. So thank you for saying that these special secret things have worth. That meant a lot to me.

  27. Can you ask them to cradle Alpacas next time? Because I recently found that Alpacas are adorable. It’s your audience, of course, so you can ask them to cradle whatever you want but in case you get bored with all the raccoon cradling, Alpacas would be a nice alternative. :o)

Just remember on your next stop, Jenny, if someone yells something to you that begins with the words “Show us your…”, you are in a bookstore and clamoring for Mardi Gras beads is considered public indecency unless you’re out walking Bourbon Street.

And not just because I was in Target and buying too much stuff is what you do there. I loved it. I might never color in it; I don’t care. I have so many people I want to share it with. Thank you.

(Hopefully Victor and Hailey are with you, since it’s near the weekend?) The book is wonderful and amazing and all the usual superlatives and made me cry, and I showed it to the shrink who’s helping me work on my anxiety, who thought it looked very interesting, but seemed alarmed that I knew so much about your life, which led to me babbling that no, Jenny writes about her life, I’m not a crazed stalker, I swear…so thanks for making me look even crazier in front of a mental health professional. 😉 (Seriously, we all love you, so take care of yourself–you’ll do just fine–and go have some pralines, OK?
