Default Boring girls: Info and Updates

I saw on a Facebook group that Chibi's book is being published and will be out on April 14th, 2015.

Plot summary:
"Rachel feels like she doesn’t fit in — until she finds heavy metal. The music gives her an outlet for her creativity and a sense that there’s a community waiting outside the walls of her high school. Then she meets Fern — a kindred spirit — and the two begin writing songs and form their own band. But the metal scene turns out to be no different than the misogynist world they want to change. Violent encounters escalate, and the friends decide there’s only one way forward . . .

A bloodstained journey into the dark heart of the music industry, Boring Girls traces Rachel’s deadly coming-of-age, Fern at her side — as the madness deepens, their band’s success heightens, and their taste for revenge grows ravenous."
Pre-order on Amazon or Barnes & Noble:



I'm happy for her! Just reading that summary makes me excited to read it.

This is so cool! I'm glad she did this and I really hope to buy it and support her.

I'm not a big reader but I would read this, for sure. : )

I'm really excited for this.
She's also publishing it under her legal name, which I was a little surprised she was so up front about, since I assumed she preferred to keep that private. But I guess since she's publishing a book, it made sense since that's a step in a new direction for her. Just something I noticed.

Hi again, btw. Been a while since i've been on here. Couldn't resist commenting on this new development.

I want to apologize to Chibi because I was the one who leaked her book information onto the Violet Prison. I'm sorry, Chibi.

I'm having a novel published in April 2015. It's called "Boring Girls", and I'm publishing it under my REAL NAME - which some of you already know. My "normal lady" name is
Spoiler!
I'd still prefer it if you guys call me "Chibi"

The book is coming out with ECW Press - a Toronto publisher. They've been so incredibly supportive, so amazing, and so excited about Boring Girls and working with them to make this happen has been thrilling for me.

I'm gonna warn you guys now - the book has some violence in it, some swearing and death and bad stuff. It was very cathartic for me to write it, and a huge challenge that I am very proud of. I'm excited for those of you interested to read it, but I'm also nervous I also have no expectation on anyone who isn't interested - this is an accomplishment for me outside the Birthday Massacre.

Please stay tuned for more info! (And I'll see you guys in the road in a few weeks!)"

Its not your fault, Someone else would have posted it im sure. You didn't create the book listings. The info wouldn't have lasted a few more weeks, especially since the description mentioned TBM. Even if it didn't give any info about the author I bet enough people knew chibi's name and with the book's description could have put the two together.

I actually was wondering if she was going to use her real name for the book!

^ You're right. What's done is done. In any case, I'm still anxious to read her book.

I remember Chibi posting on MySpace (haha!) about working on a book. That was a few years ago, I'm so excited that it's finally coming out soon! It sounds interesting, I can't wait to get my paws on it.

I'm really glad to hear this! I asked about her book here a year and a half ago, and there was no news at that time. So glad that it's finally published and looking forward to reading it.

I'm really excited for Chibi! I will pre-order this book although it doesn't represent my typical taste in books; I mainly read fact based books and biographies but I do enjoy fictional novels from time to time.
