Nuggets O’ Fun

Dang. I feel like I’ve been letting my handful of readers down by not putting up posts as often. I know I said it’d be pretty thin this month, but I feel guilty. I know it drives me nuts to log into a blog I love only to see the same Title day after day after day…

So, I’ve compiled …

Items From The Cube Farm

I brought my camera in to work today to take a picture of a friend. He wants to post his mug on, so I told him I’d help him out. What’re friends for?


Anyway, I thought I’d take some random shots of the dumb stuff in my cube. You can see whatI see when I’m not training those …

Notes From The Tail-End Of Monday

Actually, I just like the word ‘value.’ Try it out a couple times. Value. Vaaaaaluuuuue.

Okay. …

Good News, Good News…

(the subject line is to be read like Roscoe P. Coltrane from the Dukes of Hazzard)

Well, I fired out a couple more queries today and lo and behold…

One stuck.

An agent (who shall remain nameless for now) replied within an hour and a half with this nice message:

Dear Thomas, I would love to read this story. What …

Now Back To Our Regulary Scheduled Program

Well, I’m quite certain that anyone who was interested in children’s literature who happened to stumble on my blog is running away in terror at the sight of all the zombies.

Hey, kids books aren’t all puppy dogs and cookies. You know?

So, I’ve sent out what seems like a bajillion more query letters out to prospective agents and have …

So Maybe Not So Much


I ended up getting that rejection from Michael Bourret this morning, which led me to realize a couple of things:

1. He must’ve REALLY been intrigued by the concept of my book. There are people that’ve been waiting for months to hear back from him and as far as I can tell, they’re still waiting.

2. He probably read …
