She co-starred in Joss Whedon's Internet musical Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, which won an Emmy in 2009. She also created and starred in the seminal web series The Guild. In 2012, Felicia created a production company called Geek & Sundry that pioneered content on YouTube, Twitch and other platforms. It was sold to Legendary Entertainment in 2015. Since writing her New York Times bestselling memoir You're Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) in 2016, Felicia has continued to work on her own creative projects as a producer, writer, and actor.

Entrepreneurs, startup founders, young professionals, and creative professionals would be wise to pick this book up.
An empathetic read in dealing with anxiety, fear of failure, and constructive (or not so constructive) criticism. (Entrepreneurs, startup founders, young professionals, and creative professionals would be wise to pick this book up.)
A creativity guide that positively vibrates with [Day's] bubbly comedic sensibility. . . . She writes, Playfulness is the root of all creation.' Her book delights in manifesting that idea.
Felicia is a lot of fun, and so is her book.

Smart, funny, endearing, nerdy, and maybe also a little bit bravein other words, very much like its author.
John Scalzi, Hugo Award-winning author of Redshirts
Felicia Day gives us an achingly funny, honest, open look at being 'situationally famous,' (I love that phrase), plus the vital art of finding your creative joy, and weathering the storms that follow. It's a wonderful book. Buy it before I grab all the copies.

[An] inspirational comic memoir . . . to set alongside Tina Fey's Bossypants, Amy Poehler's Yes Please, Mindy Kaling's Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, Lena Dunham's Not That Kind of Girl and Sarah Silverman's The Bedwetter. Young people of both sexes and every gender should find much to empower them. (Older people, too, for that matter.)
