This weekend I’ll be at C2E2 in Chicago, handing out book promo materials like a fangirl missionary. Chances are if you’re visiting this page for the first time, I have or someone on the BAMF squad has accosted you about this little beauty.

I wanted to answer some questions I’ve gotten about The Fangirl Life, for new folks and those who visit regularly.

When is your book coming out? 

July 5th! Although if you’re lucky you might win an Advanced Reader Copy on goodreads! We’re giving away 15!

What can the book do for me? 

It can teach you how to use your fangirl passions to conquer in your own life.  How to be the BAMF in your own story.

Where can I buy it? 

EVERYWHERE. No seriously. You can buy the paperback or ebook online on the Penguin site, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Books a Million, Indiebound, Target, Powells, etc. Or you can pre-order it through your local bookstore!

I don’t live in the United States. Can I still buy it? 

OF COURSE. Most major book sites should have it listed already. If all else fails, it will be on your country’s Amazon page.

Why should I pre-order? 

Because YAS? Everyone who pre-orders will receive a fun BAMF workbook pdf that contains unicorn questions and exercises that accompany each chapter! Consider it an investment in your future. Also, the success of books largely depends on pre-orders these days. So if you know you’re going to buy it, it helps me out the most if you buy early.

May I see what’s inside the book? 

Yes. Check out the hashtag #fangirllifebook on Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, and Facebook. I post pictures daily of text and the amazing art in the book.

Why did you write the book? 

I’m a student of psychotherapy, a profession whose efforts could be summed up with one simple question—what motivates people? After many years in graduate school I realized I had never asked myself that question? Story is what motivates me. Story is powerful, and it doesn’t matter whether it’s coming from across the table or my Netflix account. I think all too often, fangirls fail to remember in our own lives that the bad weeks are part of a larger story. A story where you are your author, your protagonist and your audience. So I wanted to create a guide for them to see how their fictional passions could be the fuel for their own stories—their romantic lives, their career pursuits, and their own personal wellness.

Am I too old for this book? 

Never! In many ways this book is a letter to all my fangirl friends, young and old. Much of the advice is geared toward adulting strategies and career endeavors. It’s not a how-to guide for new fangirls. It’s a what-now? guide for those who know the game and want to grow as women.

I think I have a fangirl problem. Can I write to you? 


Thanks, friends. If you have any more questions, hit me up @fangirltherapy on Twitter, or email me at

Daniela writes,

Is it healthy to be obsessed over a TV Show? I’ve read your diagnoses and yes I identify myself with lots of them but I mean… people think I’m crazy. Is that good?
