April 1st, 2020
Dang it. I had all of this planned before tonight happened, before I lost my job of almost thirteen years; but I still want to do this, and I’m gonna, damn it.
To address what happened simply, though: I will never be able to express how grateful I am, for so many reasons and to so many people. And how glad it makes me that for the last few years, you all got me at my best, and I got to end this chapter of my life on the highest possible note. Thank you. ❤
Now — for the rest of the post!
It’s April Fool’s Day!
No joke – the last month has been ROUGH, for all of us, to say the least. Our generation is in uncharted territory, at least as far as what we’ve lived through. We’re existing in relative seclusion, latching onto kings of tigers and our dusty shelves of pop culture comfort foods to get through it all.
Movie-makers, musicians and more are releasing surprise projects and content early to help us pass the time, and I think it’s about time I do the same.
The Weirdos: Volume I is NOW AVAILABLE on Amazon for your digital devices, a full month before it’s official release on May 1st, 2020.
It’s here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B086M8W8R6
Better yet: if you were a donor to my Kickstarter and filled out your survey, you will find an email in your inbox RIGHT NOW with a link to your copy FOR FREE.
It’s not much, but it’s all artists can offer at a moment like this (which I stole from Kelly Clarkson). We’re not essential in a literal life-saving way, but we can offer trinkets and treasures of hope and love.
The Weirdos is all about connection, and in a world without, it can be helpful to remember.
(Again, thank you all. I am feeling so many feelings right now, and when I get my head and heart wrapped around it, I’ll give you my words. Enjoy this for now.)
