Befriend Your Brain

Dr. Faith’s bestselling book, Unf*ck Your Brain, rewritten for young readers!

Do you freak out at small things? Do you yell at people when you don’t mean to? Do you cry or get scared and you aren’t sure why? Does it feel like your feelings control you? 

All of these feelings are a normal part of life for everybody, but sometimes they’re just too much and it seems like you’re the only one on the planet that feels them. If you have experienced trauma or have a hard time feeling good and getting along with other people, this book can help.

What forms a publisher’s point of view?

This week on the People’s Guide to Publishing podcast, Joe and Elly answer a reader question about the heart and soul of every publisher’s operation: what goes into your secret sauce? We all have a point of view, and a big part of your path to success is understanding what yours is, how it affects your publishing, and how to let it be your north star. They also talk about how your POV is different from your taste in books.

Make a Zine (4th Edition)

Do you have a passion that you want to obsess about in a love letter to the world? In this new edition of Microcosm’s popular DIY guide to zine-making, Joe Biel updates the information provided in the first edition (edited by Biel and the late and great Bill Brent) to address zine making in today’s digital and social-media-obsessed world. Covering all the bases for beginners, Make a Zine! hits on more advanced topics like Creative Commons licenses, legality, and sustainability. Says Feminist Review, “Make a Zine! is an inspiring, easy, and digestible read for anyone, whether you’re already immersed in a cut-and-paste world, a graphic designer with a penchant for radical thought, or a newbie trying to find the best way to make yourself and your ideas known.”
