pre-orders for the first ever book by narcissus gayhart & pals are here!
i’m narcissus, a twenty-one year old psychotic agender poet. recently i’ve had to drop out of school as my psychosis gets worse and worse, and as of right now, i have very few funds to get me through the next few months.
as such, i wrote and collaborated with nico newport and friday gayhart, my partner, to make my first book: dis(ease of mind).
dis(ease of mind) is a poetry book containing ~15 poems (a few broken up into parts and the like) about mental illness, queerness, science vs magic, broken families, and love and peace in general.
it contains works from the past 2 years that i’ve written, designed in a typographic fashion by my amazing partner, who is also a struggling psychotic person.
this book is only $15—each person who had a hand in this will receive five of that, and with the preorder, you receive the poem sample above and fourteen other poems crafted lovingly by me and friday, and an absolutely stunning piece of artwork for the cover by nico newport.
please, please consider buying… it would help us all SO, SO MUCH! we are three psychotic kids struggling to make it, and we want to share our work and our lives and our art with you.
please reblog and spread!
if you preorder today, you will guaranteed get the entire book, in all of its beauty and chaos, by tuesday, september 23rd.
again, it is $15, sent to email@example.com! thank you so much for reading and boosting!
(final warning: this book does contain themes of medication, suicide, disordered eating, alcohol usage, and a few other intense themes you’d expect from a book on mental illness; please exercise caution if these things trigger you!)
