Finally…Furry & Flo 7: Portal Bounce (COME GET IT!)

Hi. This thing on? Yeah? Can you hear me in the back? Yeah? Good.

Good.

Okay, remember when I said back a little while (September of 2016) that Furry & Flo 7 was coming? And you were all like:Yeah, sure. And they’re going to make a sequel to Citizen Kane, too.

By no way am I comparing my work to …

Furry & Flo 7(It’s coming…)

Hi. Thanks for coming by. I’ll make this short n’ sweet.

  • If you’ve stumbled onto my blog having just (or at some point) finished reading FURRY & FLO: THE SOLEMN GOLEM (Book 6) and are wondering how it’s all going to end, you’ve come to the right place.
  • If you’re one of the few people who actually reads this hardly-updated

Randomitis (Books, Faces)

No one wants to hear how busy you are.  It’s become like the opening arguments for a trial you didn’t sign on to judge.  I get it.  There’s nothing more annoying (maybe not completely true) than hearing someone say: “Oh, man.  Dude.  It’s been crazy busy.  You don’t even know.”

So, I’m not going to do it.  Nope.

But let …

So These Author Visits…

Hey.  Hi there.  Hi.

So, today I did what I’m guessing is likely my last author visit of the 2013-2014 school year.  I went out to a school in Mahtomedi, Minnesota (a cool 20 minutes from home) and talked to close to 300 kids.  It was a fantastic time (like pretty much all of the visits I’ve done) but I …

Patrick? I Hardly Knew Ye…

So, kind of a strange day for me.  I was busy updating some stuff on this dusty ol’ website.  This included updating links to where people can buy some of my books and changing them from Amazon to the two different Capstone sites where my books are published. 

As I got to the bottom of the list, I discovered something that made me …

Everything’s Comin’ Up Furry…

Hey guys.  Okay, so it’s REALLY starting to feel like GO TIME down here in the Nerdery (my office).  One of the first things I did (and was horribly late on) was give away an ARC of FURRY & FLO: THE BIG HAIRY SECRET.  Here’s the video where I hastily (whilst wearing a hat) give away one of those “collector items.”

So …

Win an ARC of Furry & Flo: The Big Hairy Secret!

Remember how I promised that I was going to give away a free copy of FURRY & FLO – THE BIG HAIRY SECRET?  Well, I’m going to, finally.

Yeah, I’m embarrassed it took this long, too.

Really.  What’s gotten into me?

This is what’s up for grabs:  A limited edition ARC (Advanced Readers Copy) of the first book in my …

Haunted Hotel Tour: Colorado Edition – The Stanley Hotel (Estes Park, CO)

Thursday got us on the road to Estes Park, Colorado where we were headed to the mountains to stay in the World Famous Stanley Hotel.  This place was where Stephen King was inspired to write “The Shining” and you can see why.  It’s big, old and double-creepy.  Sounds like a perfect place to say “what up” to a ghost or …

Secret Santa Strikes Back

I know, I know, I know.  It’s not even CLOSE to Christmas.  But dang, looking out the window today on THE FIRST DAY OF SPRING, you’d think that ol’ St. Nick is about ready to pull up his fat pants and hit the sleigh in style.

So, here’s the deal.  A number of years ago I opened the ol’ memory …

40 Years – Knowledge McNuggets

So today I’m 40 years old and I thought about doing a retrospective of some sort.  You know, maybe go back through the old pictures and junk and show people how much (or little) I’ve grown up over the years.  But I don’t know, man.  That seems pretty self-indulgent and let’s face it: a lot of work.

Instead, I thought …
