Today is the day. Months of writing, editing, and promotion have all come down to this moment. My first book Living Rent Free In My Head: Essays On Pop Culture is out today!

The paperback is available through Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Reminder, the ebook is priced at $0.99 for the next week everywhere except on Amazon. If you want to read it while it’s on sale, purchase it by next Tuesday before it goes back to its full price.
Dominique Davis has a lot of opinions on pop culture. Starting the blog, Fairly Professional in 2019, she shared her thoughts about Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Gossip Girl, Olivia Rodrigo, and many more topics. Now, she’s ready to share even more of her opinions with the rest of the world. Including updated versions of the essays from Fairly Professional, Living Rent Free In My Head features several brand-new essays further exploring the pop culture topics that live inside her head. Such topics include the problem with hate-watching, figuring out when criticizing celebrities turns into bullying, why sports fans and stans are one and the same, and much more. Living Rent Free In My Head is an inside look and critique of the current landscape of pop culture.
Today has been a long time coming. I have wanted to write and release a book since my childhood, so it’s crazy to see it actually happening. Lots of time, energy, and money have been dedicated to Living Rent Free In My Head and getting it ready for everyone who wants to read it at a place where they will enjoy it. I hope with this release that the book finds its audience and that everyone who reads it can take something away from it. Take what exactly away? I don’t know, that’s for each reader to decide.
Living Rent Free In My Head may be my first book release day, but I know for certain it won’t be my last. I’m looking forward to many more, including possibly one sometime next year. But more news on that later. For right now, I am going to enjoy this release date as much as I can. I’ll be taking the rest of this month off to recharge, but I already have some blog post ideas for September and beyond. In the meantime, have a lovely August and I’ll check in soon.
