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:

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.

Boston Comics Roundtable (BCR)’s new anthology Spellbound, the latest installment in their active tradition of collected work, presents an anthology that delves into city life through the lens of urban fantasy. This collection contains over a dozen stories by Boston-area, independent comic creators that challenge the way we view the world by adding a dash of the supernatural. Visually diverse, these tales reveal the magic in both the extraordinary and the mundane, putting a spin on reality.
The volume includes the work of Dan Mazur, author of Comics: A Global History, Colonial Comics editor and contributor J.L. Bell, and Emmy Award winning graphic designer Anthony Lathrop, to name but a few. With narratives exploring a host of topics from the struggle of wielding new powers, to the dark rites of Patriots fans, to the larger-than-life musings of inanimate objects, and finally getting to the bottom of where that Boston accent comes from, among others, the novel takes our city and pulls it through the looking glass to examine what it means to be a Bostonian. Officially debuting on July 31 at Boston Comic Con, Spellbound will also be available at select local comics shops and conventions. In addition, a book launch party will be taking place on July 18 at the Boston Comics Workspace located at 561 Windsor Street, Studio 306, Somerville, Mass. RSVP for the launch party on Facebook!

Clem, Patrick Flaherty, Mehitabel Glenhaber, Levon Gyulkhasyan, Paul Hanna, Youngjin Hur, Patrick Jordan, Anthony Lathrop, Dan Mazur, Greg Moutafis, John Quirk, Roho, Catalina Rufin, and Adam Tutkus.
