Hello, I'm Shane Burcaw. I'm 22 years old, and I have a disease called Spinal Muscular Atrophy that will eventually kill me. I have been in a wheelchair since I was two. I love to laugh and my life is pretty funny. Allow me to share...
I'm so excited to announce that my first book (seen above) is now available! It offers an in-depth look at the absurdity of my life. Grab a hardcover copy today at shaneburcawbooks.com or any major book retailer!
You should come down to New Orleans! I am impatiently waiting for your book to arrive in the mail :) you are so awesome!
Your book hasn’t arrived yet because I decided to drive down there to hand deliver it personally but my wheelchair ran out of battery about 12 miles from my house so I’m just sitting on the side of the road and no one is coming to help and I’m alone and scared please help.
I'm incredibly sad that I missed you when you came to NYC, as I was studying for an exam, but I can't wait to get a copy of your book. If you come back, I'd like to hunt you down and buy you a beer!
Next time! I had a beer at The Rye House while I was there. It was decent, but too pumpkin-y for my taste.
Just started your book, and I'm already loving it! I'll leave a review as soon as I'm done. I love the engraved face on the cover under the dust cover:) Can't wait to read more!
Yayayay! Thank you! I’d jump for joy, but that wouldn’t end well.
So I may have just re-read your book again in Starbucks and recommended it to not 2, not 4.... But 6 different individuals who all already think you're an inspiration. Thank you for everything bud 💜
It’s people like you who are going to really help my book get discovered by the world, and for that, I can never thank you enough. I appreciate your guerrilla Starbucks marketing efforts so fucking much.
My friend/lover Justin is about to become super famous because of his new television show! Check out this article to see all that he has going on AND read about the upcoming full-length documentary about the road trip I did last summer, which Justin is directing!
I just read your entire book instead of doing homework, If I fail my midterms I'm blaming it on you. Tbh it was worth it, totally hilarious.
I take no responsibility for failed midterms! Hahaha no but I really appreciate your message and I’m so glad you enjoyed it! Tell ya friends about it (assuming you don’t fail midterms and hate me forever)!

Sitting on Amazon, reloading the page every three minutes, waiting for reviews to come in on my book. Luckily, I haven’t slipped to this level of neuroticism yet, but the thought has flashed through my mind a couple times. I feel like a mama bird who is having a hard time letting go of her baby.
