Goodbye to the Nervous Apprehension

It’s been a great week for Michael Heald, the man behind Perfect Day Publishing. His book “Goodbye to the Nervous Apprehension” was released last week and I flew home to Portland to help celebrate.

Here’s a link to his interview with Dave Miller on Think Outloud where he talks about the book, his origins as a publisher, and the end of his twenties:

And here’s a write up on the release party @ Electric Literature:

It’s a truly wonderful, passionate, neurotic book and only ten bucks. Christmas gifts!
