From online entertainment mogul, actress, and “queen of the geeks” Felicia Day comes a funny, quirky, and inspiring memoir about her unusual upbringing, her rise to Internet-stardom, and embracing her individuality to find success in Hollywood.
NOTE: As with all Skylight Books in-store events, this reading is free and open to the public (first come, first served). But because we’re expecting a large crowd at this event, we’ll be giving out numbered tickets to the signing line to keep things organized:
- To get a ticket to the signing line, you must purchase a copy of You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) here at Skylight Books.
- If you’d like to pre-order the book before its August 11 release date, you can do so on our website at any time (add the book to your cart, below) and we will reserve a signing line ticket for you.
- Starting August 11, you can buy books (and get your signing line ticket) in person, by phone, or via our website. Web pre-orders can also be picked up starting the 11th.
- For all website orders for this event, be sure to leave a note in the Order Comments field if you’d like a signing line ticket.

- Skylight’s Friends with Benefits members get priority signing line tickets (and 20% off this and all other event books each month), so be sure to mention your membership (or join) when you order the book.
- Felicia Day will sign and personalize BOOKS ONLY–no memorabilia, posters, DVDs, fan art, etc. Felicia Day will also take photographs while signing–no posed photographs. Thank you for your cooperation!
The Internet isn’t all cat videos. There’s also Felicia Day–violinist, filmmaker, Internet entrepreneur, compulsive gamer, hoagie specialist, and former lonely homeschooled girl who overcame her isolated childhood to become the ruler of a new world…or at least semi-influential in the world of Internet geeks and Goodreads book clubs. After growing up in the south where she was “homeschooled for hippie reasons,” Felicia moved to Hollywood to pursue her dream of becoming an actress and was immediately typecast as a crazy cat-lady secretary. But Felicia’s misadventures in Hollywood led her to produce her own web series, own her own production company, and become an Internet star. Felicia’s short-ish life and her rags-to-riches rise to Internet fame launched her career as one of the most influential creators in new media. Now, Felicia’s strange world is filled with thoughts on creativity, video games, and a dash of mild feminist activism–just like her memoir.
Hilarious and inspirational, You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) is proof that everyone should embrace what makes them different and be brave enough to share it with the world, because anything is possible now–even for a digital misfit.ress
Felicia Day is a professional actress who has appeared in numerous television shows, including Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Supernatural, and Eureka. However, Felicia is best known for her work in the web video world, behind and in front of the camera. She costarred in Joss Whedon’s Emmy Award-winning internet musical, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, and also created and starred in the hit web series The Guild.
Felicia is the founder of the online digital channel Geek & Sundry, which was acquired by Legendary Entertainment in 2014. She continues to act as CCO and develop web content and television projects as a producer, writer, and performer. She is also extremely active on social media, has more than 2.4 million Twitter followers, and is the eighth most followed person on Goodreads, where she is also the founder of Vaginal Fantasy, a romance and fantasy book club with almost 14,000 members.

CONtv Launches Original Series ‘Comic Book America with Mike Carbonaro’
Mini-Series Features Pop Culture Expert As He Seeks Out Collectibles Across The Globe; Four Episodes Now Available On Digital Entertainment Network
LOS ANGELES, July 23, 2015 – Pop Culture and Comics guru and Wizard World, Inc. (OTCBB: WIZD) favorite Mike Carbonaro travels near and far in search of the best books, toys and memorabilia in CONtv’s newest original series, Comic Book America with Mike Carbonaro.
The mini-series debuted this week on CONtv (http://www.contv.com), where fans can catch up with Mike “Carbo” Carbonaro as he locates comic books, vintage playsets, classic artwork, and sports memorabilia in the first four episodes. CONtv director of programming, Nash Herrington, produces the series.
The show features the enthusiastic Carbonaro as he highlights some of the more unique and interesting collections he’s come across, such as one man’s Doctor Strange collection, classic Joe Palooka, Flintstone playsets, and others. Also, fans can play along at home while they watch by using social media to tell what they would pay for the items that Carbonaro buys in the show.
The highlight of the show is the host himself. An enterprising and successful entrepreneur, Carbonaro began buying and selling comics at age 10. At age 13, Carbonaro set up at his very first comic convention. Later, from 1981 to 1997, he ran his own very successful comic book store, Continental Comics, in Queens, N.Y. In 1996, Carbonaro began the very first Big Apple Convention at St. Paul the Apostle church on 58th St. and Columbus in Manhattan; 12 years later it was the most successful privately owned comic convention in New York City. “Carbo” is currently working as a buyer for Dave & Adam’s Cardworld (also seen at many Wizard World shows) and doing what he loves—buying comic and pop culture collections from around the world.
“’Carbo’ is a fixture at Wizard World shows and one of the most knowledgeable, entertaining figures in the collectibles world,” said John Macaluso, Wizard World CEO. “His enthusiasm, well known to thousands who have attended our events, comes through loud and clear in this fun, informative series that Wizard World fans will love.”
Catering to the enormous and avid Comic Con audience, CONtv currently boasts 2,500 hours of original programming, curated films and TV episodes, and exclusive Comic Con panel coverage from dozens of annual nationwide conventions, with new panel programming added weekly as additional conventions take place. Spanning star studded panels with pop culture heroes such as William Shatner (“Star Trek”), Lou Ferrigno (“The Incredible Hulk”), Michael Rooker (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Bruce Campbell (The Evil Dead, the forthcoming series “Ash vs Evil Dead”), to the best in cosplay, creator workshops, Con after hours events, and more, CONtv is the only service to offer Comic Con event coverage alongside premium feature film, television, and original programming.
