Big Dog, Bad Idea and a Book Announcement

Crackhead dogs. Farting husbands. Dollar General filet mignon.

If you know how those three things go together, well, I’m sorry, because it means you read my book, I Love You. Now Go Away. Absolute tens of people bought ILYNGA, and I’m ever so grateful. I had a blast writing it and even more fun getting comments, texts and emails from people who read my sordid tales. I enjoyed the whole process so much, in fact, that I’ve decided to do it again.

So if you like reading about balls, bad beer and boobs getting in the way of golf . . . well then, again - that was my last book. But I’ll have something similar for you soon! I’m thinking in about a year.

That’s the good news. 

The bad news is I won’t be around here, on my blog, as much as I’d like to because there’s only so much “funny” in me. I'm very limited on the funny! You're already aware of this if you’ve met me. I am very disappointing in person.

I know, I know - I already took a two-year break from blogging. I miss it because I love reading the comments and, hopefully, making my friends laugh a little. 

But if I’m blogging my material, then there’s nothing left in me for a book. And I’d really like to leave behind some tangible things when my time on earth is up someday. I don’t want to leave behind a bunch of web pages for Google to delete eventually! I’d much rather leave behind books - for somebody to throw away eventually.

Oh well. You get my point.

Anyway, please stick with me! I’ll have something for you - relatively soon.


As with my last book, my plan is to post snippets here from
time to time from the upcoming book. Here is a bit from the
chapter tentatively titled “Big Dog/Bad Idea.”

I do not want another dog,” I told her.

Missy tilted her head to the left.

“I mean it,” I said. “The Meth Lab is enough.”

Missy tilted her head to the right.

“Plus, you’re way too big!”

Missy licked my face.

And so we have another dog.

Again, this isn’t just any dog. She is a dog who has her own zip code. A dog who has her own ecosystem. A dog who has her own weather . . .

Stay Tuned!


  1. Glad to hear you are back at it! We are moving, so I was packing up my bookshelf the other day and found your other book and thought of you...looking forward to the next one...��

  2. I am so looking forward to this! :D Side note: That tongue!

  3. So good to hear your voice once again. I bet you're not the least disappointing in person and one day hope to find that out. Happy to know you're writing.

  4. That's exciting - the book, I mean. Although a new dog is pretty darn exciting too :) Good luck with both!

  5. Huge congratulations on the book front.
    And I will be here, waiting patiently, for any gems you post.

  6. I always liked having a dog where I didn't have to bend down in order to give it a pat on the head. I've had a couple. And a bunch that were smaller and even lap-sized, too. I have missed you as well as myself on occasion. You are just so full material that I wish you all the best in this new endeavor. I know it will be terrific!

  7. I wish all books had beer and boobs in them. Congrats on the ten people that bought your book.

  8. I can't wait to read the new book!!!!! So happy you are picking up the pen again!
