My book is now printed and real! Friends helped me haul boxes home from the publisher yesterday—my favorite parts are the adorable illustrations by Natalie Nourigat and the solid-gold text designs by Molly Schaeffer. Oh, and the words are pretty good too.
Sex from Scratch changed a lot while I was writing it. Here’s the final table of contents and explanation of the project:
Modern life calls for modern relationship advice. Sex From Scratch: Making Your Own Relationship Rules is a love and dating guidebook that gleans real-life knowledge from smart people in a variety of nontraditional relationships. Instead of telling people how to snag a man and find “true love,” the book sums up what dozens of diverse folks have learned the hard way over time—life advice from people making open relationships work to people who’ve decided they’re never going to have kids—that is helpful to anyone, in any type of relationship. This is an essential, fun, insightful resource whose time has come.
Release party at Powells City of Books in Portland on August 25th! You can preorder the book here and it’ll show up on your doorstep soon.
THANKS SO MUCH to the dozens of friends and strangers who helped me research and write this book over the past two years. You all are wonderful and we’ve made a book that will be helpful to a lot of people.
