Book Tour Ep!

On this episode of Straight Up WIth Stassi, Stassi talks all about her book tour and what this experience has meant to her. (Spoiler alert: it has meant a lot.)

“This is not a humble brag.”

“All of my signings have been sold out — 1,000 people. This is not a humble brag. This is a brag brag. I feel very proud and just so humbled and overwhelmed with emotion that everyone has just been embracing Next Level Basic and this book. I have not had one bit of negative feedback. It has all been so positive and I can’t believe that I spent months and months with my stomach in knots worrying if people would like it, if people would relate to it.”

“It turns out that there are a lot of undercover basic bitches around here that really needed that push to just be themselves and embrace their basic bitch. And I feel really happy that I could write something that could release everyone, I guess. Releasing the basic bitch chains and shackles.”

“What is life right now?”

“When I had my signing in New York, that was fantastic. I couldn’t believe I was at the Barnes and Noble on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. I was like, ‘What the fuck is life? What is life right now that I have hoodwinked and tricked all of these people into being here for me?’ I still can’t digest it. I’m trying to digest it and I just can’t. I feel so happy and at peace and overwhelmed with love, but I’m still not getting it, if that makes any sense.”

“I can’t thank everyone enough for not only showing up, but being so kind and so lovely. The gifts that people were bringing, the presents that people were bringing, even presents for Beau — I should have just brought Beau on this trip. Before I went on it, I was like, ‘Okay, should I just go by myself with my publicist, or should I have Beau come along?’ I thought about it a lot. I was like, ‘Because I feel like I’m going to be drained, I’m not going to have the energy to go out and go to bars and dinners and socialize. I don’t want Beau to be bored, so I guess I’ll just leave him at home, get work done, and that’s it.’ I regret that. I totally wish that he came because people who came to my signings asked about Beau and gave me so much love about Beau — just as much as they did about my book. It really warmed my heart.”

“Just so many happy tears.”

“Every day I’ve been crying multiple times, just so many happy tears, because I can’t believe just how much people are loving it and relating to it. I’ve always loved my podcast and said that my podcast gives me a sense of purpose, and I love connecting with you, and I just love the whole community that we’ve all created together. You guys have all connected with each other. You also created this community of Khaleesis. This isn’t just me. It’s now turned into something so much bigger than I ever dreamed it could be. I’m just in shock and awe. I’m so, so thankful. Everyone who came out — I’m just so thankful.”
