When will the BFRB Guide (How to Heal Your BFRB: 4 Steps to Stopping Compulsive Skin Picking, Hair Pulling, and More) be ready for purchase and download?

I'm hard at work! I'm aiming to release it by the end of 2020. I want this guide to be perfect for you, not rushed.

To be alerted of the guide's release, sign up here, or favorite the BFRB Guide Shop on Etsy.

Why will you sell on Etsy and not Amazon or other popular e-book vendors?

It's a secure place from which to distribute the BFRB Guide and manage sales for a much lower cost than on Amazon, Smashwords, and the like. Etsy is a trusted marketplace where creators sell their vintage or handmade goods, including books. I'm excited to be offering How to Heal Your BFRB: 4 Steps to Stopping Compulsive Skin Picking, Hair Pulling, and More there.

Will I need an Etsy account to purchase the guide?

No, you can check out as a guest. It's very easy.

What if I don't want to purchase through Etsy?

Email me directly. We can exchange payment via Venmo, PayPal, or whatever you prefer, and once I receive payment, I'll send the e-book directly to your email address.

If this answer doesn't satisfy you, reach out, and we'll discuss how I can best deliver the e-book to you. That said, I like Etsy because it's safe for both of us, and it delivers the e-book instantly as a digital download, so you don't have to wait for me to check my email and get back to you.

Is the book available in hard copy (print)?

Not now, but it may be in the future. As much as I enjoy holding a book in my hands, printing hard copies adds a level of complication and environmental impact that I want to avoid. If the book does well, and people ask for hard copies, though, I'll oblige with print-on-demand, so a copy will only be created for each person who wants it, and waste will be reduced.

To faciliate reading on your screen of choice, I've made the dermatillomania guide available in various formats:

All three formats come with the instant Etsy download, so you can open whichever you prefer after the download.
