We published my book, How To Not Kill Yourself – Ten Tips For Troubled Times on 25 February 2020. The book is the story of my struggles with manic depression. I wrote it because I had to. In other words – I was very depressed and writing, and art in general, is my way to heal. Along the way, many wonderful things happened. I learned that I can help myself to heal by trying to help others to heal too. It’s a ‘pay it forward’ type of thing. I am very proud of this book and it’s the best thing I’ve ever written. If you get depressed, or if you love someone who does, please read my book. I promise it will help. And even if it doesn’t help, you’ll have a few good laughs because I am a seriously funny mofo (and very humble too).
Here’s a little excerpt:
Congratulations! If you’re reading this, then you haven’t
killed yourself. You’re still alive. Well done! I’d like to
think you’re still alive because you saw my book and
thought, “Well! I gotta have some of that,” after which you
read the book and decided not to pop a cap in your own
ass. You’re welcome.
