The new book from Offbeat Home's publisher is a total SH!TSHOW #Site News#books#Shitshow To Afterglow Updated Jul 30 2020 (Posted Jun 29 2020) Ariel arielmstallings Hey guys! It's me, Ariel — the publisher of Offbeat Home & Life. My new book, From Sh!tshow To Afterglow, publishes on July 21st. It's about how to rebound after loss, grief, and the other cruel crises life throws your way — it's sorta the anti-self-help book. A bit more about the book Sometimes your foundation crumbles. Sometimes you realize there wasn't a foundation to begin with.Maybe your relationship ended in a breakup or divorce, or you lost your job, or a loved one died. Whatever crisis showed up to screw with you, it brought everything else crashing down, and suddenly life became confusing, disorienting, out of control.A total shitshow. You. Need. Help. Therein lies the problem: Traditional self-help guides just aren't for you. You're an individualist, an iconoclast, a follow-your-own-drumbeat kind of person. The typical sunshine-and-rainbows, "live your best life!" books in the "personal growth" aisle aren't going to speak to your worldview–you need an embrace-your-weirdness vision for growth and rebuilding. Enter Ariel Meadow Stallings, who has experienced a few life catastrophes of her own and emerged from them with newfound clarity and strength. In From Shitshow to Afterglow, she offers a lifeline of support and outside-the-box thinking for times of crisis and confusion, sharing plenty of tactical tips for getting your shit together.

I’m boycotting Amazon and the other options don’t seem to cover Europe. Can’t wait to read it, so crossing my fingers there is a way for me to get hold of it! Reply I fully support boycotting Amazon, and the reality is that they're not doing international preorders anyway, due to COVID-19. I'm hearing different things from folks who are trying to pre-order in Europe… One reader in Stockholm reported that she was able to find the book on Adlibris (an online bookseller in Sweden) but there wasn't a pre-order option, just a "notify me when it's published" option. I'd suggest calling your local indie bookseller and asking them directly! Buying local is so important these days, when so many indie booksellers are struggling. The book is definitely distributed internationally, and my general understanding is that most international booksellers can order a copy for you… but presale options may not be available. The book is released on July 21st 2020, so it's not long to wait. ALL THAT BEING SAID, sadly the sweepstakes that Hachette is only open to US residents. I pushed back to see if they could open it up internationally (15% of my readers aren't in the US!), but they said they couldn't, due to sweepstakes laws. 🙁 Reply Hello Ariel! I look forward to reading your book! Do you provide an online pdf with a summary while sales are not yet available? Reply Nope — but it's available in stores now!
