Introvert Book  | Katie Vaz
Katie Vaz’s charming and delightful illustrations will resonate with introverts who are trying desperately to find a balance between social time and their need for solitude. Whether you struggle with devising the right excuse to leave a crowded party early, or are in dire need of strategies to avoid small talk with the chatty neighbor, Katie’s new book has got you covered. It is filled with oh-so-relatable moments accompanied with witty and helpful tips on how to plan your smooth escape. I wish I had this book sooner. It would have saved me a lot of angst from awkward social situations!

The Escape Manual for Introverts

The Escape Manual for Introverts is a book I authored and illustrated that was published on August 6, 2019 by Andrews McMeel Publishing. A blend of humor and inspiration, The Escape Manual for Introverts explores the awkwardness of everyday life and guides readers through different scenarios with themed chapters ("Friends," "Relatives," "Strangers," etc.). Each chapter covers a range of situations, from an invitation to karaoke night to group lunchtime. Escapes and tips are offered for each scenario, like bringing odoriferous foods to lunch for a while, having a pet (real or imagined) that "requires" frequent check-ins, and even investing in a jet pack. This book features full-page illustrated spreads, hand-lettering, and spot illustrations. From the silly to the sincere, these clever, hilarious escape plans and bizarre excuses speak to the introvert in all of us. Now on sale wherever books are sold!
