DAMSEL DISTRESSED is the story of Imogen Keegan, a girl who thinks the world might *actually* end when her stepsister Ella Cinder moves in. But the funny thing about those end-of-the-world moments? Sometimes it turns out that they’re really just the beginning of something you never expected.


October 14th marks the release of DAMSEL DISTRESSED and its companion soundtrack of original songs, written and performed by the author, Kelsey Macke, and her husband Daron as their band, Wedding Day Rain.


In celebration of the release, we’re inviting some of our favorite youtubers, booktubers, and vloggers to consider making a video about their own distressing moment. Maybe yours is an embarrassing tale from 9th grade involving braces, a crazy straw, and ill-fitting pants. Whatever the story, post your video and share it with the world anytime in October.  


At the end of the month, we’ll compile all of them in a roundup and everyone who participates will be entered in a drawing for an annotated final copy of DAMSEL DISTRESSED. The randomly chosen winner will get a signed copy, riddled with Kelsey’s thoughts, doodles, and random comments written throughout.


All it takes to participate and be entered is a public youtube video with “Say Yes to Distressed” in the title and a story of your own.
