This is My Brain in Love with Indie Bookstores

Books – and bookish friends – have gotten me through a lot of tough times in my life, and this pandemic is no different. With a little help from my friends, I’m so excited to announce the This Is My Brain in Love virtual tour to support independent booksellers (read my previous post if you don’t know why you should support your indie)!

Everyone who buys a copy of This is My Brain in Love from any independent bookstore will get a signed + personalized bookplate, a sticker, and a bookmark. Everyone who comes to one of my virtual events will get scintillating conversation with some of the most incredible writers and humans in the world.

One lucky reader will get a $100 gift certificate to

One fabulous educator/librarian will get: 

  • A $100 gift certificate to
  • A 20 book classroom set of This is My Brain in Love
  • A Skype visit from moi (and possibly a special guest)
