NC – Felicia Day Signing

00000000-felicia-day-2016tour

Felicia Day (The Guild, Geek & Sundry) appears at Cat’s Cradle on Wednesday, April 27, 2016 at 6:00 PM to discuss and sign the paperback edition of her memoir YOU’RE NEVER WEIRD ON THE INTERNET (ALMOST)! Hosted by Flyleaf Books, co-sponsored by NC Comicon. Buy tickets at the link.

Press Release:

From actress, web entertainment pioneer, and “queen of the geeks” FELICIA DAY comes YOU’RE NEVER WEIRD ON THE INTERNET (ALMOST), a funny, smart, and inspiring memoir about achieving extraordinary success on her own unconventional terms. [On-sale April 19, 2016; Touchstone; 978-1-4767-8566-0; $16.00; Paperback]

Felicia Day has appeared on hit series such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, SyFy’s Eureka, and The CW’s Supernatural (as fan favorite “Charlie Bradbury”). She also costarred with Neil Patrick Harris and Nathan Fillion in the Emmy Award-winning internet musical, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog.

Most notably, Felicia is an entrepreneur in the vanguard of Hollywood’s digital players. Meeting dead ends pitching her script about a quirky group of video gamers, she created and starred in her own web series, The Guild (2007-2012). Today, Felicia is founder and CCO of Geek & Sundry, an award-winning digital entertainment network (with more than 1.4 million YouTube subscribers and 12 million fans across all social platforms) bringing together fans of gaming and geek culture.

Since the emergence of the commercial internet in the 1980s, Felicia has been an early adopter at every stage of its growth, blazing a trail toward today’s digital world. In her memoir, she is irreverent and insightful about her unusual upbringing, her rise to internet stardom, and embracing her “weirdness” to become a leading creator in new media.

Felicia Day is “delightfully good company and has an interesting story to tell” (Kirkus Reviews), writing with inimitable humor and raw candor about topics including:

• Why You Should Embrace Your Weirdness: Growing up “homeschooled for hippie reasons,” Felicia’s isolation from other kids meant she could unabashedly pursue “uncool” passions like video games, advanced calculus, and 1930s detective novels. She found a sense of community on gaming message boards—forming friendships based upon shared interests and developing the raw confidence to forge her own path.

• Growing Her Geek Empire: Eight years ago, Felicia stood outside of San Diego Comic-Con handing out bookmarks for her self-made web series, The Guild, shot in her own home with a borrowed camera, unpaid actors, and scavenged props. Just recently, she presided over Geek & Sundry’s massive Comic-Con headquarters at Petco Park and spoke to a sold-out convention hall. Tales of interactions with fans both in-person and online range from hilarious to heartbreaking—and reveal how Felicia went from “oddball to odd baller” (Cosmopolitan).

• When Perfection Doesn’t Pay: A violin and math whiz who started college at age sixteen and graduated as valedictorian, Felicia was used to chasing perfection for perfection’s sake. Ever candid, she opens up about the rough patches along the way, recounting battles with writer’s block, a full-blown gaming addiction, severe anxiety and depression—and how she reinvented herself when overachieving became overwhelming.

• #GamerGate: In August 2014, a video game designer named Zoe Quinn was attacked by an online hate mob after her ex-boyfriend shared details of their relationship online, including erroneous implications of sexual favors in exchange for positive reviews of her game. Hackers leaked Quinn’s personal information, she received countless violent threats, and anyone coming to her defense risked becoming the next target. Felicia shares the storm of hostility she encountered after speaking out against the online bullying, how it tied into her history with negativity on the internet, and thoughts about how it changed her view of the gaming culture she has always loved.

With a success story for today’s connected culture, in which technology and entertainment are ever-evolving, Felicia Day urges everyone to celebrate what makes them different and be brave enough to share their unique point of view with the world, because anything is possible now—even for a digital misfit.
