I thought, “Well, this is it, the wolves are back” and got ready to run inside when who should appear but the pig Hank Williams, out for a late-night romp. Pigs are smart like everyone says and despite our best efforts he’d broken out of the barn for the second time this week. Pigs are also friendly as dogs and he jogged up to me and oinked happily and nuzzled my knee and wanted to play. I ran around with him for a while (which felt totally bizarre at 4am after writing about Nazi resistance all night) then I put him back in the barn and we both went to sleep. Saturday night in the country.
If you want to help fund the next printing of this one, here’s the indiegogo I’m running to get it back in print. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/help-keep-the-diy-guide-to-fighting-the-big-motherfuckin-sad-in-print/x/7081244#home
This is funded as of last night!
Now, if we can raise $500 over the goal we can send the first batch of these to print on Monday. (Which means I might have them for the East Coast tour in May and then I’ll be able to do readings of it.)
Hopefully by the time the campaign is over (May 10th) we’ll be able to send it to print once more and not have to worry about reprinting for a while but that’s a long way off. Who knows, stranger things have happened, right?
If you want to help me get (what will hopefully be) the first of two printings off to the printer on Monday, I could use all the extra push I can get. Even reblogs or whatever are totally great. Any help counts heavy.
As of now, there are only FIVE copies of the book left at Pioneers Press before it’s out of print.
You guys are fucking mighty.
The indiegogo to re-print my Do-It-Yourself Guide to Fighting the Big Mothefuckin’ Sad is 93 percent funded after only a WEEK. My big hope is that we can go over the amount so we can print more copies. The more copies we make the more people it can help. I’m pretty okay with that. FRIENDS, LET’S DO THIS!
Rest in peace, Gabriel Garcia Marquez. One of my all-time heroes. Been reading Gabo and Fidel and Cien años de soledad for the past few weeks. What a goddamn good writer. We’re celebrating you tonight, Gabo.
Today we went up to halfway funded on my indiegogo to re-print The DIY Guide to Fighting the Big Motherfuckin’ Sad. I’m going to go to bed right now because for the first time in fucking ages I feel wholly solid with life. Thank you! We can do this! FUCKIN A! I believe it! https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/help-keep-the-diy-guide-to-fighting-the-big-motherfuckin-sad-in-print/x/7081244
Only about 20 copies left of the book before it’s out of print. Any magic you all can work (whether that’s telling people about it or sending the link around or reblogs or, really, ANYTHING) would make my heart swell.
Big thanks to everyone who has kicked down to help keep my book The Do-It-Yourself Guide to Fighting the Big Motherfuckin’ Sad in print. Right now we’re about 20 percent funded with a few weeks left in the campaign. Still have a long way to go but I wanted to tell you all thanks; you’re making me feel like we can actually do this.

Anything helps. It’s about to go out of print and I need to raise $1500 to keep it in print! SAVE BIG SAD begins now! https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/help-keep-the-diy-guide-to-fighting-the-big-motherfuckin-sad-in-print/x/7081244
I’ll tell you more about this tomorrow.
Hey friends: My DIY Guide to Fighting the Big Motherfuckin’ Sad book is about to go out of print. Pioneers Press is going to reprint it but it’ll be a couple months before that happens. If you want one before they’re gone, now’s the chance. pioneerspress.com/catalog/books/4189/
