Praise

“If you or someone else in your life could do with an inclusive, funny, super smart, and sweet introduction to the world of female geeks, look no further.”—The Mary Sue

“Short, thorough, wide-spread, funny, and varied—I wish I'd had this handbook when I first ventured into the fanzones!”—Tamora Pierce, author of The Song of the Lioness series 

Book Description

This ultimate handbook for ladies living the nerdy life is a fun and feminist take on the often male-dominated world of geekdom.
 
Fandom, feminism, cosplay, cons, books, memes, podcasts, vlogs, OTPs and RPGs and MMOs and more—it’s never been a better time to be a girl geek. With delightful illustrations and an unabashed love for all the in(ternet)s and outs of geek culture, this book is packed with tips, playthroughs, and cheat codes, including:
 
• How to make nerdy friends
• How to rock awesome cosplay
• How to write fanfic with feels
• How to defeat internet trolls
• How to attend your first con

And more! Plus insightful interviews with fangirl faves, like Jane Espenson, Erin Morgenstern, Kate Beaton, Ashley Eckstein, Laura Vandervoort, Beth Revis, Kate Leth, and many others.

"...this book could be invaluable."—GeekMom

"For a woman trying to find her way in fandom, I think this book would be invaluable. But that’s not to say men can’t get something out of it as well."—FreakSugar
