Goodhalo II – Progress

Hey, I’m going to do my best to not be all boring and tell you how I’m doing on my current work in progress. So, I’ll be uber-brief.

GOODHALO II is over halfway done.

Check the progress bar, suckas.

It’s rough, it’s nasty…but it’s gonna be one heckuva story.

Tommy likey.…

Unattainable Goal?

What it is, Tappers. What. It. Is.

So, I’m trying to set myself a goal for writing the much anticipated (well, I’M anticipating it!) next book in the GOODHALO series. And here is/are the catch(es):

1. I’m trying to get it drafted by the end of September.
2. I think it’s going to be 100,000 words or so.
3. I …

Zomb-ay-ay-ay-ay

Could you tell that my post title came from the ol’ Cranberries song? Remember that one? The one that had nothing to do with ZOMBIES?

Well, it’s yer ol’ pal TKT on the back side of a mad dash to spruce up the ol’ GOODHALO synopsis. It, along with an author bio (about yours truly), and a full 411 page …

It’s away!…

Good for you… Good FOR you.

I can’t get the blog title to look like Chris Walken is saying it. I think it was from the movie ‘Envy’ with Ben Stiller, which I never saw.

Oh. Hi.

I finished Draft 3 of GOODHALO tonight. My hope is to have it to you beta reader types by Sunday sometime.

Fitting, isn’t it?

That means you…

– Mr. …

See Ya, Big Old Stone Face Book!

Well, that’s that.

I’ve sent off my draft of Mount Rushmore to my editor just minutes ago and I sort of feel like I miss working on it already.

Is that crazy? Me!

Mr. Fiction!
Mr. I Want To Do Important Books About Zombies!
Mr. I Never Liked History In High School!
Mr. I’m Going To Wait Until the 11th …

Egg Drop Soup & Other Delights

Hey, it’s not like I don’t love you Blogger (you too, Tappers!) but I’ve just been a busy, busy boy.

So busy. Boy.

Let’s sit down for a spell and catch up a bit, why don’t we? Yeah, you can sit there on the futon. Just go ahead and move those Hot Wheels cars over to the side. That’s fine. …

Hoo Boy…

So, I’m a bit of a nerd. That really doesn’t come as much of a surprise to anyone at this point, does it? No? Good. Let’s continue.

I was quietly, happily working on edits for Draft 3 of GOODHALO when the ol’ pager went off. Turns out some poor soul wanted to check off of our mortal coil, didn’t fare …

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 …

Rejection + Comments = Love

Like a lot of things in my frantic world, this is long overdue.

I got a rejection card from Houghton Mifflin, oh…a month or so ago, but I just didn’t have the heart to talk about it. And it’s not because I had all my last hopes for THE SHORT BUS JOURNAL riding on their thumbs up or thumbs down. …
