All the Immortal Things that Live Inside of Us

The story of heartbreak and healing that everyone needs to read. Pick up this newest, best-selling book by Ethan; his most personal to date.

Open Hands

Open hands is an illustrated exploration of a posture we can go through life with. It’s a simple but powerful concept. No matter where you are in life, this book will speak to you.

Bad Timing

Many modern dating books treat relationships like a formula or checklist: Follow these rules and you’ll soar to marital bliss. Bad Timing takes a different approach. Pulling from over a decade of dating experiences, Ethan paints a raw portrait of today’s dating scene. This book is not a how-to, nor is it simply a memoir of hilarious and heartbreaking love stories. It’s the recap of a decade spent chasing after romance and failing miserably; sometimes it’s funny, often it’s tragic, but it’s always honest. Embedded in every reflection is at least one lesson learned by hard- won personal experience. Whether you’re looking for help with your dating life, relatable bittersweet tales, or simply some authentic entertainment, you’ll find it here.

How to Understand the Entire Universe, Part 1

All of it. Want to know what women’s feet can teach us about anthropology, or how the film Fight Club can teach us about liturgical church services? This is just Part 1, but you’ll find yourself drinking from a fire hose for 300 pages! Aesthetically designed and easy to digest, you’ll say you never had so much fun learning about premodern ontology!

If you could haunt your house forever

This collection of stories is odd, weird, creepy, and anything but ordinary. A mysterious Trainman tells you not to whisper, while a deranged taxi driver in Detroit keeps a lethal secret under the driver’s seat. This book is not for kids. Right when you think you’ve got a handle on the story, turn the page and see it take a sharp turn. I’ll even tell you now: There’s something in the water at the Pig Farm, The Misymphomiacs are hiding something, And you’d better prepare for The Event. What happened at Crum Hill? Who are the Tall People? Where is Stitches Cactus Farm? Discover the answers to these questions and more in If You Could Haunt Your House Forever.

Time Kills All Things

“A bold, refreshing and insightful collection of essays.” These 200 essays have been compiled from 2012-2019 and wrestle with topics ranging from sexuality and porn to structural racism and epistemology. If you want to learn a little bit about a lot of things…

Leaving Weather

In college, I published Leaving Weather. It’s part prose, essays, poetry, photography, and all passion! The second edition of Leaving Weather has over 70 new pages (Over 250 total) and is loaded with new content and photography! Leaving Weather is a non-fiction collection of thoughts, stories, and poems on life, love, intimacy, loneliness, and God, and the interaction between them. It is wrought out of my own experience and spilled across these pages in a design-heavy and artistic spread.

The Tall People

The Tall People is a collection of short, fictional stories. Half of them were written by me, and 13 other authors each contributed one story to this collection. They each have a little bit of oddity and quirk to them, and typically do not end up where you expect them to. Some of the stories contain violence.
