Tiny GOODHALO Excerpt & Update

“Your bravery surprises me, Pious,” Hurvick said. “But our fates are in the hands of the gods.”

“Their hands are full,” Pi replied, which made Lasha gasp.

From GOODHALO, by Thomas Kingsley Troupe

So, that’s what I’ve been doing friends. Working FEVERISHLY on the revision and overhauling of my little zombie book, GOODHALO. I’m on a mission to trim this …

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 …

In Case You Missed It…

My dumb Christmas post (below) knocked the super sweet picture of Pious Goodhalo (from my book) a little further down on my blog, so I wanted to give you a chance to marvel at the amazing Nathan Malvig’s work by clicking here:

Word on the streets? He’s gonna do a picture of Pi’s best friend Gort Vondras next.

I. …

Pious Goodhalo has a face!

Hey kiddos! Well, it’s probably one of those things that’s only exciting for me, but I just can’t help but decorate the halls of Tappity Tappity with this anyway.

Did I mention that I had an artist friend who was interested in beefing up his portfolio? Did I mention that this friend also happens to be my barber? Yes…the same …

The Price of Fast Drafting…

You know, that’s the problem with trying to write a big ol’ novel in a couple of months. You let other things, like a certain BLOG go to the wayside.

How many people here were sick of seeing my same ol’ post about fightin’ fires and driving an ambulance around?

*raises hand*

Yeah, me too. That was like…so five years …

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 …

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 …

Seriously, Minneapolis. You’re Too Kind…

Hiya Tappers,

Well, it took every ounce of my strength not to rush home last night after the screening of “High School Drifter” and tell you how well I thought it went. We watched 11 short films last night. Some were really pretty good. Some were downright awful.

My little film (HSD) for short, played 3rd from the end. Not …

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. …
