Donald Trump might be elated that Lena Dunham could soon be packing up and shipping out to Canada, but you didn’t think that she wasn’t going to do her part to leave a bunch of women just like her behind to kick up a ruckus in her absence, did you? She dropped a book today and all of the proceeds are going toward enabling mentors to work with young female writers.
Really, the Dawn of Dunham is just beginning. She’s spawning. In fact, she’s been spawning for about an hour and a half since this puppy went on sale at noon EST.
Hello! I have made a chapbook- an essay on diary keeping and excerpts from my most absurd & secret 19 year old journal- to benefit the incredible @girlswritenow. Limited edition of 2,000- signed and numbered- with all profits going to mentoring young female writers. Available today starting at noon EST. I love holding this little pink thing in my hand and hope you will too! Link to purchase in bio ? ebook also available through Amazon, Barnes and Noble and oodles of indie booksellers via Kobo!
That’s right: This chapbook of her young adult journal is already generating revenue for her clones, so if you were celebrating her big move north of the border, I guess the joke is on you because all of that money is going straight for the pockets of mentors who are eager to produce young women just like Dunham. (If you’re mad, be advised that she might not even care.)
She sold out the first 2000 physical copies of the thing, which is pretty impressive considering there was absolutely no warning that it was going to drop today or even that it was being made.
Thank you so much! We’ve sold out of our first run of 2,000 signed copies and are feeling joyous because all your bucks will help @girlswritenow do their critical job!!! And so will the purchase of the ebook, which is $2.99 and ready for you. Link in bio!

I hate her with a venomous hate. I want to rip her face off, hold it up, watch her watch me in shock as her cheeks bleed in my hands.
110 pounds, she says her mom might think she’s gotten fat. But her boyfriend called her back bony. It hurts, she says, when you just can’t be good enough for anybody. I fucking hate this girl.
So, what do you think? Gearing up to buy that ebook?
