Announcing the virtual book tour for "Storm of the i"

Next week will launch the virtual book tour for Storm of the i by Tina Collen.

Collen’s memoir is not anything you’ve seen before. The coffee table memoir is overflowing with memorabilia, art (some of it a bit risqué), foldouts, diecuts, a popup and even a mildly scandalous lift-up flap. “In a world where the printed page is in jeopardy of becoming an endangered species,” writes Sara Davidson, TV producer, and New York Times best-selling author, “this remarkable work reminds us of the joy of holding an actual book in one’s hands.” Beneath the light-heartedness of the interactive elements, however, lies the story of Collen’s difficult relationship with her father. Excerpts of this unusual work can be seen at

  1. A memoir in art and words? Storm of the I sounds intriguing. I'll have to look for it. Thanks, Sandra!

  2. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and also reading everyone else's thoughts about it. It's a book to be shared, for sure.
