Publisher's Summary

The Internet isn't all cat videos. There's also Felicia Day - violinist, filmmaker, Internet entrepreneur, compulsive gamer, and former lonely homeschooled girl who overcame her isolated childhood to become the ruler of a new world...or at least semi-influential in the 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.

Felicia's short-ish life and her rags-to-riches rise to Internet fame launched her career as one of the most influential creators in new media. 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.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

What the Critics Say

"Everything Felicia creates seems to succeed. This book should be no different. It's a great read - far from 'horrible' and worth every 'Penny'. See what I did there? It's a play on...never mind." (Neil Patrick Harris, author of Choose Your Own Autobiography and Felicia’s costar in Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog)

"Reading Felicia Day's memoir is like going on a road trip with an old friend you never knew you had. This is the perfect book to prove you aren't the only misfit in the world, and to remind you that that's a very good thing." (Jenny Lawson, author of Let's Pretend This Never Happened)

"It's hard to keep up with Felicia Day. She's an actress, a gamer, a screenwriter, a songwriter, a producer, a director, a webmaster, a costumer, and queen of the geek girls. It's hard to imagine where such a prodigy could have come from. Wonder no longer. Felicia tells all...well, most...well, some...in her new book. Reading this is like sitting down and having dinner with her, and hearing the story of her life between the clam chowder and the cheesecake. I can't imagine a more charming or amusing dinner companion. Felicia is a lot of fun, and so is her book." (George R. R. Martin)

"I have personal heroes, and Felicia Day is one of them... She’s more than a self-made woman - I sometimes think she’s not a human woman, that she willed herself into existence, before willing the world to make a place for this new, unfathomable creation. Felicia is stronger than I am, and stranger than I am, and she double-majored in math and violin. I love her for all these things. I love this book because it relates, hilariously and occasionally harrowingly, how she came - or brought herself - to be this singular (though double-majored) creature." (Joss Whedon)

    "Funny and charming and nerdy :)"

    I was kind of tangentially aware of Felicia Day's work but plan to seek more of it out after listening to this. Her story is engaging and funny and she does a fantastic job reading it. If you are in anyway at all interested in nerd culture or just enjoy a laugh you will probably get something out of this book. I appreciate that she is not at all apologetic about being a high achiever but is also honest about her anxiety.

    It's also quite touching in places - there's a bit with a fan that made me tear up a bit. The gamergate chapter is also really interesting and a thoughtful examination of that ridiculous phenomenon.

    I was enjoying it so much, that I listened to it all in one day - so, yes, I recommend this book.

    The pdf is available but not, apparently, on my phone.

    "Funny, inspiring, honest and brilliant"

    I am not an obsessive gamer, and I only knew of Felicia through shows like Buffy and Supernatural. But you don't need to be a gamer to appreciate what she has to say - it's a witty and brave account of how to CREATE and be true to who you are. Everyone should read / listen to this! You're awesome Felicia! Now I'm off to watch The Guild :D

    "loved every last word"

    I picked up the audiobook as my
    travel companion for my daily commute. Having been a big fan of Felicia Day for years now I had been looking forward to the book for months. This book, read by Felicia herself, gives wonderful insights into the weird and creative mind of a situationally famous lady gamer/actress/writer/person that made me smile, nod, frequently chuckle and snort but also feel strongly connected during her accounts of her depressions,fears and worries. Hearing her relate her not infrequent struggles with people, the mad mad world and above all herself made me feel okay about my own quirks and struggles.
    Great, inspiring and funny memoir.

    Could not recommend this book enough. Felicia's performance is amazing, a lot of ups and downs, very eye opening towards causes for depression and anxiety.

    "Thank you Felicia"

    This book flew by and was awesome. Loved getting a real incite into someone I've admired and who's inspired me for so long. The highs and lows, the laughs and heart hitting moments. Having is read to me by Felicia herself was great, every quirky moment and ever voice came out beautifully.

    "Well written and read by Felicia, I was hooked."

    My only awareness of Felicia is from her character Charley on one of my favourite shows Supernatural. Who doesn't like watching the Winchesters kick a$s.
    I follow her on Twitter so when I saw lots of posts about her book I decided to download with my Audible sign up credit.
    I didn't know what to expect at all. I found the recount of her life experiences to date interesting, witty, entertaining and an eye opener to the web & gaming community. My last gaming experience was the original NES Super Mario.
    I definitely got hooked by the audio version of the book, so much so I didn't mind queuing in traffic as I got to hear more (work can wait).

    "If you like watching with commentary turned on..."

    I just binged this audiobook in 24 hours (even at work) because Felicia tells a damn good tale. She explains about her unusual upbringing and describes places in her world that helped her embrace her personality, she confesses to some embarrassing social encounters and mostly she seems brutally honest about the triumphs and trials of being internet famous and an anxious over-achiever. It comes across as reflective, thoughtful and politely careful not to poke fun at other people in all their glorious technicolour weirdness. There are name-drops, sure, but Felicia doesn't disclose details on the nature of her personal relationships with others - if you're looking for juicy gossip about the Supernatural cast or Whedon crew then you're in the wrong place. This book is about embracing who you are, feeling the fear and doing it anyway, recognising the worst parts of yourself and not letting them overwhelm the best parts.

    I'd recommend this for fans of watching The Guild with commentary turned on - those little nuggets and easter eggs in the videos? Those take on a whole new significance after listening to this book. For anyone with a passing interest in FD, her work, inspiring women or learning more about functioning with social anxiety, this is well worth a listen.

    "A weirdly human deja-vu"

    I've enjoyed Felicias work for a while now, though I'm definitely late to the party compared to fans of hers from back when the Guild started and such.
    But despite what the haters say, she is both a genuine geek from what I can tell as well as a fantastic ambassador and voice for both geeks and in a way a generation heavy with geekdom.
    I enjoyed her reading of this book which itself was a nice and at times harsh insight into the creative world - nothing that most of us have never heard but here it was real and oddly normal without the melodrama one often hears/sees with stories about the rise and fall of the famous and such.
    As someone in India where this culture and mindset is definitely still nascent, much of her struggle and especially with regard to peoples's attitudes and the like hit home a lot. It was also a nice sober reminder and yet retained a sense of hope and patience and staying true to your vision/dreams even when they evolve that I appreciated.

    "We both enjoyed this FAR more than we anticipated."

    I'm a female. I'm a gamer. Partner is a gamer (we met in WoW 10 yrs ago) and we're both fans of Felicia Day and her work - so we had a pretty good feeling that we would enjoy listening to her book. Truthfully though, we both really didn't expect to LOVE the book as much as we did.

    This is one of those books where you'll either love it or hate it - and I'm personally so disappointed that the book came to an end.

    "Just buy it already"

    If you're a fan of Felicia Day, this purchase is a no-brainer. It's a biography, diary and success manual, all wrapped into one perky package - narrated by the always entertaining Codex herself.

    Been a fan of Felicia Day for a while. I am not a gamer but a woman in technology. I want to find a way to use technology to make a difference in disadvantaged communities...the book is inspirational in that it makes it seem like anything is possible if you believe in your dream. Thanks Felicia for the inspiration!

    "Absolutely Outstanding"

    This book is like a peak into the amazing life of Felicia Day. You get to go along on this journey with her as she shows you all the highs and lows she has been through, and how she's been able to rise above any obstacle in her way. In this book she also tackles problems about the verbal bulling and abuse people receive online, taking a stand against the trolls. I found this book uplifting and it left a warm glow in my heart. Would definitely recommend to anyone of any a age or gender, as it is funny, emotional and an absolute delight to read :)
