People Are Being Nice and Saying Nice Things
People are saying nice things about SHUT UP, YOU’RE WELCOME! Yay!
First, Meg Cabot has been recommending my book all over town, including the official publication of hotels everywhere, USA Today. This is kiiinnnnnndddd of like getting a personal hug and a giant chocolate cake (without frosting because fuck that shit) from a hero. I love Meg Cabot, she is one part workhorse and two parts dreamboat, topped off with a tiara. HOW can one woman do all this?
SHUT UP also got a supremely kick ass review in this month’s BUST Magazine. It got a four boob review! Four boobs! Who doesn’t love boobs, amirite?
“It’s as if a friend with great comedic timing was telling you a very animated story about losing her luggage.”
The great Patricia O’Toole once told me “Bad for life, good for writing.” This is how I approach Virgin America now.
And finally there’s a really great writeup in Paste Magazine.
“I found sprightly anecdotes galore and prose technique to rival the best humorists now working in this style.”
High praise! High praise! I am high, on praise! Now I will operate heavy machinery.
Thanks for all your support, everyone. I am super stoked about this book and grateful that it’s out in the wild, doing it’s thing. Meanwhile a mouse is living under my stove and doing mousey things like being a dick and pooping on the floor I just vacuumed and mopped. I know it’s weird that humans poop in a can of water (when you think about it, it’s really bizarre) but mice just poop wherever. Like they literally shit where they eat. It’s gross. My current mood is “keeping it real.”
