Felicia Day (The Guild, Geek & Sundry) appears at Boswell Book Co. on Monday, April 25, 2016 at 7:00 PM to discuss and sign the paperback edition of her memoir YOU’RE NEVER WEIRD ON THE INTERNET (ALMOST)!

Press Release:

Please join Boswell Book Co. for a ticketed signing with “queen of the geeks” and New York Times bestselling author, Felicia Day, signing copies of You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost), a “relentlessly funny and surprisingly inspirational” (Forbes.com) memoir about her unusual upbringing, her rise to internet stardom, and embracing her weirdness to find her place in the world. Tickets are $17 each, include all taxes and fees, admission for one to the signing line, a paperback copy of You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost), and can be purchased from the Brown Paper Tickets website. Ms. Day will sign copies of You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) and—time permitting—is happy to personalize your copy of her memoir. If you’d like a photo of Ms. Day signing your copy, bring your phone or camera—booksellers will be on hand to accommodate requests!

When Felicia Day was a girl, all she wanted was to connect with other kids (desperately). Growing up in the Deep South, where she was “home-schooled for hippie reasons,” she looked online to find her tribe. The Internet was in its infancy and she became an early adopter at every stage of its growth—finding joy and unlikely friendships in the emerging digital world. Her relative isolation meant that she could pursue passions like gaming, calculus, and 1930’s detective novels without shame. Because she had no idea how “uncool” she really was. But if it hadn’t been for her strange background—the awkwardness continued when she started college at sixteen, with Mom driving her to campus every day—she might never have had the naïve confidence to forge her own path. Like when she graduated as valedictorian with a math degree and then headed to Hollywood to pursue a career in acting despite having zero contacts. Or when she tired of being typecast as the crazy cat-lady secretary and decided to create her own web series before people in show business understood that online video could be more than just cats chasing laser pointers.

Felicia Day’s rags-to-riches rise to Internet fame launched her career as one of the most influential creators in new media. Ever candid, in You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost), 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. Showcasing her “engaging and often hilarious voice” (USA Today), You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) is proof that everyone should celebrate what makes them different and be brave enough to share it with the world, because anything is possible now—even for a digital misfit.

About the Author:
Felicia Day is a professional actress who has appeared in numerous mainstream television shows and films, currently recurring on the CW show “Supernatural,” and recently completing a two-season arc on the SyFy series “Eureka.” However, Felicia is best known for her work in the web video world, behind and in front of the camera. She co-starred in Joss Whedon’s Internet musical “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog.” She also created and stars in the hit web series “The Guild,” which is currently in its sixth season. Her production company Knights of Good produced the innovative web series “Dragon Age” in conjunction with EA/Bioware in 2011 and in 2012 she launched a funded YouTube channel called Geek & Sundry. Felicia continues to work as creative chief officer with her company, as well as develop television and web projects for her to write, produce and star in.

Press Release:

The Internet isn’t all cat videos. There’s also Felicia Day. A violinist, filmmaker, Internet entrepreneur, compulsive gamer, and former lonely homeschooled girl who overcame her isolated childhood to become the ruler of a new 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. 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.

felicia-day-bookFelicia Day (The Guild, Geek & Sundry) appears at Bookshop Santa Cruz on Saturday, August 22, 2015 at 7:00 PM to sign her new book YOU’RE NEVER WEIRD ON THE INTERNET (ALMOST)!

Press Release:

Praised by the likes of Neil Patrick Harris, George R. R. Martin, Lev Grossman, and Jenny Lawson, You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) is the much-anticipated memoir of a digital entrepreneur, awarded actress and web series star, and geek culture icon.

Growing up, being “homeschooled for hippie reasons” led Felicia Day to out-of-the-box enthusiasms like advanced calculus, noir films, fantasy novels, and role-playing video games. Typically typecast as “crazy cat lady secretary” and meeting dead ends pitching her script about a quirky group of gamers, she decided to adopt a do-it-yourself attitude and produce her own web series—launching The Guild and, ultimately, her career as one of the most influential creators in new media. Day’s inspirational memoir is proof that everyone should celebrate what makes them different and be brave enough to share their unique point of view with the world, because anything is possible—even for a digital misfit.

Candid and insightful about her unusual upbringing, her college years as a violin and math whiz, her early misadventures in Hollywood, and her unconventional rise to Internet-stardom, Day writes about how embracing individuality fuels creation, community, and innovation on the Internet and beyond. Ever-relatable, she also addresses the rough patches along the way, recounting her struggles with writer’s block, anxiety, and learning how to manage when overachieving becomes overwhelming. A success story for today’s connected culture, in which technology and entertainment are ever-changing, Day was empowered to ignore the traditional gatekeepers because the Internet provided tools to go around them.

Felicia Day has appeared in numerous mainstream television shows and films, including the SyFy series Eureka and a recurring role on The CW show Supernatural. However, she is best known for her work in the web video world, behind and in front of the camera. She co-starred in Joss Whedon’s Emmy Award-winning Internet musical, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog. She also created and starred in the hit web series The Guild, which ran for six seasons and is available for viewing on every major digital outlet, including Netflix.

In 2012, she launched the YouTube channel Geek & Sundry, a hub for the geek community that celebrates individuals and fuels connections both online and in real life. Now with more than 1.3 million subscribers and over 200 million views, Geek & Sundry has produced the very best of indie geek culture, pioneering modern media consumption—and catalyzing a barrier-transcending online community exploring the verticals of comedy, gaming, comics, music, literature, and more. In 2014, the company was purchased by Legendary Entertainment; Day now acts as Geek & Sundry CCO. She was named to the Hollywood Reporter’s 2012 Next Generation list recognizing rising stars 35 and under in media. Her extremely active social media network includes over 2.3 million Twitter followers, is the founder of a romance and fantasy book club with over 13,000 members.
