I hate this…I want to go SO BADLY but I can’t convince my fiancee to come with me and because I have, like, the BIGGEST crush on you she totally wants to make sure I’m not a complete idiot and don’t embarrass myself in front of you … because, you know … just in case one day I got a shot 🙂 Sigh….I will still try though.

  21. I’ll be there. I was excited, but a little anxious about it. So, my husband, who is the greatest man in the world (most of the time), is making sure that I get there to meet you. I can’t wait and I apologize in advance if I’m a total derp, or a little strange.

  23. If I had a time machine, I could set the dial for 1997 and find myself conveniently located just outside of Philadelphia on the Jersey side. But then it would be more than a decade prior to the publication of your first book, so I’m not sure why I’d expect you to be on a book tour. So then I’d adjust the dial back to 2017, but that would plop me directly back into Albuquerque, NM and almost a continent away from Philly. You know what? Scrap all of that and pretend I said nothing.

  28. March is a really, really hard time for me and my mom. My grandpa died in March, and it seems like every year bad stuff happens. This year my best friend’s mother died, my other friend’s dog died, and now my camera won’t work and I’m supposed to see you in La Jolla on the 20th and I can’t possibly go without a camera!! (My phone has no camera) We are super-tight on money because of this planned trip to La Jolla, so I don’t know if I can afford a new camera right now. March sucks. But one way or another I will see you on the 20th!

  35. So, I’ve been looking forward to seeing you here ever since you posted you were coming to Philly. I had a plan, I mentally prepared and then last night I started getting anxiety. And today it is full blown. I hate driving, hate the city, hate leaving the comfort of my “known” paths that I walk, I’m scared of meeting the person who means so much to me and facing all that alone. I’ve thought of a million excuses of why it’s ok not to go or shouldn’t go. My anxiety is filling my head with scared thoughts and reasons I shouldn’t put myself though this.

    BUT I’m going to try. Why? Because I know I will regret it. Because thanking you in person is important. And because I WON’T let my illness take this away from me. It has taken so many things throughout my life, things Iook back on now and think dammit, why didn’t I do that! Not this time. I’m going to gulp some Xanax, hold my healing stones, wear my comfort scarf, put on my red glitter Converse and GO.

    And hope I don’t burst into tears when I see you!

    I’m so very bummed that my dear friend Bethany and I had to call it. Snow storm Stella has won this one. We’ve assured each other that this is not your last book or book tour and the chance to meet you in person will surely come again! Soooo, no pressure! Good luck on the rest of your tour and I shall drown my sorrows with coloring You Are Here. Love and hugs for your super [snowed in] fans in Central NY.

  46. I wish I could be there! I just read the first few pages of “You Are Here” and I intentionally set it aside to feel the feels in this moment. You are magic in all the ways you touch people…all sorts of people with all sorts of issues or non-issues or just bad gas. You are special and you have a gift and I can’t tell you how much it means to me every time you flow through the pages and into my heart!

  47. I will not be joining you on your tour, sadly. Instead I went to my local Chapters/indigo bookstore where I saw the most beautiful endcap display of You Are Here. I bought one for my niece’s 23rd birthday and now my husband wants his own copy. We love you up here in Canada too. Come in the summertime when its pretty and all the snow is gone!

    My mom and I had to leave your book signing right as it was starting. We had to catch a train out of the city and back to the suburbs and weren’t going to make it. But, I was there and really wish we could have stayed to say hello.

I’m not sure what the other patrons thought of my occasional loud guffaw’s and subsequent mild choking, but then I’m not sure I care – We had a lovely time. Thank you.

  52. I had to leave before the book signing but I wanted to say how great it was to see
    you and hear you talk about hope and survival in the face of depression. Your blogs and books have gotten me through so much. I wanted you to know how much it’s meant to me but I don’t have the words. Just know you’ve helped me take care of myself and this has allowed me to help others. It just so happens that since your first book and your last book, I became a psychiatrist. You’ve inspired me to inspire others and I can never thank you enough!

    Don’t know if you like Hard Rock music but if you do then you should listen to a song called ‘Lies Of The Beautiful People’ by Six Americans. After reading the chapter in Furiously Funny where you talk about the shinny people it reminded me of this. Basically it says not to believe the lies told by the so called perfect people.
