Over the years I've been telling the story of my life as an American woman abroad to smart, loyal, insightful readers across the Internet.

You've been so gracious to tag along as I've bumbled through Hawai‘i, Japan, Hong Kong, back to Japan again, while struggling with language, anxiety, racial identity, relationships, ghosts, cats, and ghost cats. 

While I get to write the words, very often it's your responses that really make the story blossom. We've built a community that has made me a little braver and a little wiser. I don't want that community to come to an end; I want to keep telling my stories and I want to keep hearing yours. 

I know it's not ideal friends, readers, followers, commenters, Creepy Corneristas. But if you can help support my writing in a small way, I promise I'll keep writing for you with my whole heart, and all the honesty and humor I can muster.

Not only will you get access to everything I write here and a thank you postcard, you'll also get to choose THREE full-length essay topics I write about. (I of course reserve veto power, as well as when the topic is scheduled. YOU'RE NOT THE BOSS OF ME...are you?)

Plus, I'll thank you on Twitter and/or Facebook for your generosity and for sharing your most excellent brain with me (only if you want, if you're social media-shy, I get it and we can skip this part). 

We'll email, we'll gab, it'll be fun.

Which includes:
  • A collection of original, custom buttons and/or stickers featuring choice phrases from Louise (and Louise's Mom) like: "Thank the Great Kitten in the Sky", "Your Eyes Are Brown Cuz You're Full of Shit", or  "Creepy Cornerista". There might be some of my animal friends thrown in there too. 
  • A Highly Coveted Louise Hung Thank You Pack tote bag designed by me and my talented friend. 
  • A mongoose*
  • Louise's Guide to Traveling Near and Far – my tips, tricks, and SECRETS for traveling while often confused, ceaselessly hungry, occasionally clumsy, sometimes spooked, usually sleepless, and always amazed. 
*Relax. No mongooses were harmed in the making of this package. What's with the mongoose, Lou? Google "Louise Hung, mongoose, creepy".

Oh my Great Kitten in the Sky! I'm writing a book!

I just need a little extra push at this point to be able to finish it.
