Hey all!

So I’m on a hiatus, of sorts. Meaning I burnt out after book tour due to lots of factors and I’m taking time for myself starting next week to get my head back in a good place. So if you don’t see me around I’m basically cleaning my house and organizing my projects and seeing friends and trying to get my spark back a little to take 2016 by storm. And Fallout 4. Lots of Fallout 4.


Anyway! Posting this here because my book is a finalist in the 2015 Goodreads Humor category! Your vote would really help me, the book is a piece of my soul and a two year venture for me, so to have it win would be amazing. So if you read it, or enjoyed it, please click here:

Have a great holiday!

ea6abbaaf4081a9a18bdcf3607beb39dOver the last two weeks I’ve been overwhelmed in a lot of ways. With the traveling and meeting thousands of people, and it’s all good, but a lot to take in! The book has done so much better than I’d hoped (although I’m a pessimist so anything above zero exceeds my expectations, EVER haha) and hitting the New York Times bestsellers list? Unbelievable.


Overall though, the most amazing thing has been meeting parents of young kids and teens who have thanked me for writing something that encourages their children to stand up for themselves. And kids themselves. To stay strong and not be ashamed of their weirdnesses. It’s the most fulfilling byproduct of writing this book (besides making people laugh): Helping influence young people to not be ashamed of who they are. Peer pressure, bullying, conformity, all causes us to abandon those things that make us different and makes it hard for us to fit in. But those differences are our superpowers, ya’ll! Never get rid of those things that make you an individual!


So I had a shirt designed by Natalia over at Geek and Sundry to be able to raise money for the anti-bullying charity “Stomp Out Bullying”. All proceeds go to this amazing cause, and will hopefully encourage lots of people to embrace their weirdnesses. If you want to order, go to represent.com/felicia, the shirt will be available until September 9th!

ITS HERE! I’m on a plane to NYC right now to start my book tour. 12 cities, ending in PAX. And then DragonCon, SLC Comicon, and then NYCC to wrap it all up. Whew, definitely a vacation after that. Involving Mai Tais hopefully :)


I’m really nervous because even today some people got early copies in the mail, and they’re currently reading through my life story, and it feels a bit ticklish, like someone poking through my underwear drawer, lol. A sensation I’ll get used to as the launch happens, I’m sure. I’m slightly afraid they might find something embarrassing or someone might get mad at me about a fact they dispute, etc etc. Already some of the press headlines are provoking some ass-y comments from the fringe negative gaming elements, so I’ve cut myself off reading reviews and such that aren’t directed at me. But ultimately, I’m so happy with the book, and I hope most people will be too! It’s so hard to put a creation out there though, especially one you’re invested in emotionally, so I can just take comfort in the fact that I did the very best book I could, and even if a few people are touched by it, it’s enough. Creativity isn’t about ourselves, it’s about the way the things we create affect other people. (Effect? Grr. I always forget).


If any of you can make it out to the cities I’m touring that would be wonderful! The links are on my Facebook Events Page and if you’re in the UK your orders will help a lot, here’s a Sweepstakes UK link if you want some possible prize incentive!


And leave a comment if you’ve started reading, let me know what you think, what picture you laughed at most, or if you were inspired to try something new because of it!

final-cover2 (1) A few book updates! First: There’s gonna be a LOT of book updates the next few months. I worked a year and a half on the manuscript and I really want people to read it! I’ve had some amazing feedback on the preview version, if you check feliciadaybook.com there are blurbs by some of my favorite fantasy and romance authors, like Lev Grossman and Ernie Cline and John Scalzi, as well as wonderful Hollywooders like Neil Patrick Harris and Aisha Tyler. And on the updated cover design, we added that Joss Whedon kindly offered to do a foreword to my book! So I’m hoping that the quality of fancy voices endorsing it will help the book shine through all the other media you have to choose from and you’ll pick it to read when it’s out August 11th!


The book is now available in the UK and Australia and New Zealand, along with US and Canada, purchase links are on the feliciadaybook.com website. ALSO I’ll have book dates announced next week, AND there’s a sweepstakes happening at feliciadaybook.com/sweepstakes for anyone in the US who has pre-ordered! Just enter and you can win a signed bookplate, tee and signed poster! UK opportunities for signed stuff will be up shortly.


It’s my birthday tomorrow and this year has dropped a lot of adulting in my lap, family-wise, work-wise and just…mind-wise? I’m so grateful for everything that’s happened the last few years, good and bad, and it feels like I’m finally settled enough in who I am to appreciate where I am, and all the people around me. Friends, community like #TeamHooman, and all the viewers of the things I do. I genuinely enjoy what I’m doing every day for the first time in a while. I am eager to get my book out there and then work on the scripts I want to write, for myself and for others, and get back to the creative core of what I love: making things.


Anyway, more to come soon, check the events page or follow me on the many social media accounts for updates, yay!
