Strangers to Our Futures
Grandfailure

Hello doomers,

I've got a new post up, adapted from my new book, Doomer.

Strangers to Our Futures
What psychology tells us about ourselves.

Speaking of the new book, I stayed up all night refreshing myself on InDesign and made a nice, polished layout and dust jacket for the hardback. This book feels special, so I wanted to do it right. It should go live on Barnes & Noble by the end of the week. You can also grab it directly from me on Lulu, where authors get a much bigger share of the royalties:

Doomer
Nobody ever listens, do they? They call you hysterical, a fearmonger, a doomer. A little validation would feel nice. You’re just trying to guard your health and your sanity, and maybe those around you. This book explores the history and psychology behind all of the aggressive wishful thinking in our culture, so you can navigate it a little better. It offers the mythical figure of Cassandra as an inspiration and role model for those of us who feel cursed to hear the future. You’ll get much more than a bunch of collected essays here. These are expanded and polished rewritings, carefully integrated into chapters, with fresh commentary and perspectives on the chaos we battle every day, along with some observations and insights designed to offer some solace.

I'm rounding up more news for a weekend update.

Take care,

Jessica

P.S. I added the hardback layout pages to the ebook version on Gumroad.
