Finally I Can Show You This!

April 2, 2018

ATSS cover 2

LOOK! It’s the cover of my forthcoming memoir ALL THE SAD SONGS! A year ago I sat down to make a 25 page story and ended up 8 months later with a 104 page book and it’s coming in September from Big Planet/Retrofit. I am SO EXCITED to be able to FINALLY talk about it! Here is the description:

“How is it that a song doesn’t specifically have to be about you, but it feels like it is?”

In her first full-length graphic memoir, Summer Pierre takes us on a journey through the soundtracks that shaped her. Through mix tapes, boyfriends, late nights in Boston folk clubs, and ill-fated cross-country road trips, Pierre weaves a moving meditation on music, memory, and identity.

You can see can see a 3 page sample at the Big Planet/Retrofit Kickstarter that launched today!   Small independent publishers like BP/Retrofit depend on Kickstarter campaigns to fund printing costs and author advances. You can pledge at the $10 level and essentially be pre-ordering my book! Go get it!!

I am SO PROUD to be published in the 2018 line up, which also includes books by Sarah Lautman, T. Warren Craghead III, Yumi Sakugawa, Karl Stevens and a bunch of amazing other cartoonists. What company! Go see their amazing work!

Thank you in advance for supporting independent presses and my first ever full-length memoir. I am really proud of this work and I can’t wait for you all to read it!

    Congratulations. Of course I will order a copy. Maybe it will inspire me to write my memoir.

    The tentative title is EVERYTHING I GOT I NEVER WANTED, EVERYTHING I WANTED I NEVER GOT.

    Uplifting, yes?
