Chit Chat And Emo Girl Talk

I can’t tell you how flattered I was when the lovely Martina Butler from the Emo Girl Talk podcast asked me to be on her show. I must’ve been blushing for a week straight! We gabbed all about how babe-a-licious Jesse Lacey is and the best way to break into the book biz. The interview is live and streaming so take a trip over there and hear me pretend to know what I’m talking about.

Martina Butler is the raddest!! Listen to me babble on Emo Girl Talk!!

In other news of self-promotion, one of my besties was in NYC last weekend and she sent me the most amazing pictures from Urban Outfitters. I mean, I knew they were selling Wish You Were Here online but I had NO idea it was hitting store shelves. Take that, Chuck Klosterman!


A Camp at the Troubador. It was amaaaaaaaaazing!! I have, like, the biggest girl crush on Nina Persson and just being in her presence made me feel like a “Lovefool.” (Yeah, I totally went there.)

The band just put out their second album, Colonia, not too long ago and it’s super-fantastic awesome. Here’s one of my fave songs, “Stronger Than Jesus.” Take a listen and let me know what you think! (Warning: Nina Persson is so pretty, it might be hard to look at her for more 30 seconds at a time. If this is the case, feel free to close your eyes and zone out.)
