Within the last couple years, she appeared in a YouTube video (I didn't actually watch it, because I didn't make the connection until later, but Markiplier mentioned he appeared in a video with her). She moved to Colorado. Another person mentioned she gave a talk earlier this year (seen in the comment section here http://gazettereview.com/2015/07/what...)

The book being canceled isn't because her sister died. (less)

I really don't understand why people are getting upset about the publish date. I consider her first book one that changed my life. It made me laugh, cry and gave me a better understanding of myself dealing with depression and anxiety. I am just so thankful that she has another one in the works and would happily wait years to experience another one of her pieces. Be patient my friends. I have no doubt that it will be worth the wait.

So apparently in the last three years:
--Her sister committed suicide.
--Her marriage ended (she now lives in Denver, he now lives in Seattle).
--She had a cancer scare.
--She required major surgery.
--She has redirected her efforts into public speaking and abandoned her blog.
--This book has been canceled by the publisher.

So...DANG.

UPDATE: It's been three more years, and since then she has...disappeared. No new posts. No new book (it was canceled, finally) and no-one has heard anything from her. We

Amazon just emailed me. There is no longer an expected release date.

In happier news, here's a corgi butt.

For heaven's sake. What sort of evil mind is behind this cruel joke? Now I know there's a new book by Allie and I can't taste the sweet elixir of her unapologetic humor until October 25, 2016 September 7, 2017? Preposterous. Outrageous.
I need to talk to your supervisor. I want to make a formal complaint.

When I saw this "new" title by Allie Brosh, I didn't know anything about it and just thought "gotta get my hands on that title!" and left it at that. Then I thought I'd borrow it from the library and obviously hit a wall. Then I saw Amazon's publication date was 2050 and I started investigating a little. Now, having read the following update provided by a kind GR member https://gazettereview.com/2015/07/wha..., it's looking like this book may never get published. Then again, there's a small chan ...more

(Updated August 26, 2016) I am well aware and understand the situation but it got pushed backed for another year (Now September 7, 2017) :'( Still, stay strong, Allie Brosh!

(Updated May 27, 2016) Oh dear... So that's why this book was pushed back. Her sister died :'( My condolences to Allie Brosh and her family. You take all the time you need.

(Updated October 26, 2015) THE RELEASE DATE IS PUSHED BACK BY ONE YEAR (Now set at October 25, 2016) :'(((

(Updated May 20, 2015) HAHA! THAT (decoy)

Estimated publishing date of December 2050, which is either a weird time capsule situation, or it's dead on arrival.

Why are people rating books that aren't even released yet? Gadzooks.

Ooooh, Book Depository have a release date for later this year! https://www.bookdepository.com/Soluti...

I hope this one sticks, I can't believe I added this back in 2015.


*sigh*
One day maybe.
Hopefully before the current publication date on book depository (Publication date 31 Dec 2050)
Right?

The publication of this book has been delayed indefinitely. I pre-ordered in May 2013 from Amazon, and Amazon notified me of the delay in July 2016. Current publication estimate is December 2030, per information listed on the publisher webpage.
