Life is good. You have a job, an apartment in a nice part of town, and an online dating profile that’s recently yielded as many as three matches. From the outside, it would appear you’re a human man that has all the pieces of a stable and functional life. But you also have a horrible secret. You’re not a human man at all. You're a WOLF.

Assume the role of one of nature’s greatest predators, just barely maintaining a fake identity as a part of the human workforce. Each choice you make in this interactive story is crucial to your survival and, more importantly, your burgeoning graphic design career. Will you navigate water cooler gossip without arousing suspicion? Can you go on a date without bringing up how much you love ham? Or is it perhaps time to throw this human world to the wind and return to the woods from whence you came? These choices and many, many more await you in: I AM NOT A WOLF.



This book, based on the immensely popular Twitter account @SickOfWolves, puts the reader in complete control of the narrative. From the simple challenges of being a wolf in a human’s world (lack of opposable thumbs, an insatiable desire to feast on fresh meat, etc) to the more existential problems that come with human life (romantic dissatisfaction, wondering if you should flee into the woods, etc) I AM NOT A WOLF makes the reader expect the unexpected as they put it all on the line to protect their lupine secret.

The book will lead the reader through a day in the life of a wolf pretending to be a human man, asking the reader to make choices along the way. These diverging narratives are paired with illustrations from illustrator Sage Coffey, providing an experience equal parts narrative and visual with an estimate word count around 40,000 and at least twenty illustrations accompanying the various choices the reader makes along the way.



I AM NOT A WOLF holds up a mirror to society and forces us to look at our true nature. It’s a silly, hilarious, and nuanced look at life in an ever-changing society from an outside perspective. It’s about the lies we tell each other and the lies we tell ourselves. It’s also about wolves, which are very cool.
