The Geek’s Guide to Dating, my lil’ non-fiction humor book that published in 2013, sold into Spanish.

The Geek’s Guide to Dating was my first published humor book, with Quirk Books back at the end of 2013. It made a few Best Books of the Year lists, and it’s sold into seven languages so far, with a few more on the way I can’t quite talk about yet. It’s my lil’ book that keeps on going, and I love it.
