Oh, hi!

Hey, hey, hey…

That’s supposed to be Fat Albert greeting you to another long-overdue post on the nearly defunct-ness that is my blog, Tappity Tappity. Thanks for stopping in.

Truth be told, I’m feeling like Fat Albert these days. Raising these kids is really knocking me off my working out gameplan. Really. It’s sooo dang tough nowadays to get out …

And…We Have A Winner!

All right, so let me just get this out of the way:

A HUGE thank you to everyone who participated in my goofy haiku contest. Not everyone likes haikus, poetry or even kids books, but dang it, you made this fella feel like maybe you sorta did, even if for only a moment.

As I said, there were a couple …

Stuffity Stuff

Hiya Tappers!

Well, as per usual, I’m busier than…er, um…someone who’s real busy. It’s been insane both on the work front, the writing front and the warm front we have moving into Minnesota.

Ha ha. See what I did there?

Anyway, I thought I’d shoot out a couple little nuggets of stuff out for those interested in seeing where I’m …

Contest! You Cool? Then Haiku!

People of the internet!

It’s time. Time to unleash my first contest here on good ol’ Tappity Tappity. I thought long and hard about what I wanted to do to give away a copy of my little book Patrick’s Super Socks and due to budget and time constraints, I couldn’t do the super, awesome contest to end all contests that …

Ogggg… OR I’m Tired: the Sequel

Good morning Tappers.

Hey, is that condecending? You know, that I call my (2-3) readers Tappers? There’s another blog I read sometimes and the author calls her readers a certain name and I sort of find it condecending a little bit. I don’t think it’s so much that she has a name for her readers as much as it’s the …

Oops, I Did It Again.

Man, what a dumb word: Oops!

“Oops, I accidentally dropped a 40 megaton bomb on the state of New Mexico.”

“Oops, I guess that pistol WAS loaded.”

“I just fired myself out of a cannon into a cauldron of hot, bubbly magma. Oops.”

Anyway, I just thought I should come right out and tell you that I don’t know when …

The Customer Is Always…First?

Friends of books and stuff:

I was alerted by my wife that my former boss (we used to work together… my wife and I, that is) had pre-ordered a couple o’ copies of Patrick’s Super Socks last week and has ALREADY GOTTEN THEM in the mail.


Here’s the thing: I’ve got an advanced copy already, but I haven’t blogged …

Okay, so this is kind of a crazy thing.

I got bored this morning, so I did a search on Amazon for my upcoming kid’s book (PATRICK’S SUPER SOCKS) that’s due out next month and found THIS.

How weird is that? It’s like it’s going to be a real book…you know, like the kind you can order? Sure it doesn’t …

Those Super Socks

Not much to report today, but I did get an e-mail back from my editor (so weird to say that) in regards to some of the books I’ve got with them that they’ve had for a while. Here’s part of what she said:

“I’ve kept your submissions and will do my best to get them on the list for a …

Rain & The Species Route

Okay, first and foremost: I can’t tell you how much it bugs me that my dumb ol’ Thursday 13 was formatted all weird. I tried and tried to fix it and make it all nice n’ pretty, but it just ain’t happening. If you know me in the least, you know how much it bothers me.

Hence, this post. I …
