Life is a Circus Run by a Platypus

I have a book coming out! Yes, you read correctly, an actual page-and-binding construct that will be big enough to help you fend off a rabid squirrel if you should happen to meet one! 

My book, Life is a Circus Run By a Platypus, has been selected for publication by Sweatshoppe Publications!!! 

Here are the answers to the questions you might (or might not, this is a bit of a Schrodinger moment) be asking: 

> What is this book about? 

Well, here is the blurb from the back of the book: 

Has being late to work due to dancing clowns ever been a problem for you? Have you ever had to defend yourself against a giant iguana? Does the overture to “The Music Man” make you violently twitch? 

In Life is a Circus Run by a Platypus readers are immersed into what it would be like to live every day as if a herd of ballerinas were chasing you, without the inconvenience of actually having to run. This collection of truly bizarre short stories taken from the author, Allison Hawn’s, life takes one across the world and into the strangest crevices of civilization. The lessons learned through her adventures might very well save the reader if they too ever have to face birthing a cow, calming distraught technical support or death by furniture. 

> Well that sounds swell, when and where will the book be released? 

It will be available May 20th on and through the Sweatshoppe Publications website ( In the following week it will also be available through Barnes and Noble, Ingram and various other bookstores. A full list will be provided closer to the actual release date.

  > If there were a war between bears and unicorns, who would win? 

Unicorns, undoubtedly. 

> If I have questions about the book, media kits, or am having a minor existential crisis, how do I contact you?
