07 May Suddenly, it’s here!
Yes, it’s basically like when you finally get your kids to sleep… you stumble to your bed, close your eyes, and … … it’s morning!! And there are your kids – bright-eyed, in-your-face, and ready to go!!! Except in this case, it’s my book STARK RAVING DAD. I’m not sure how we got to the release date so soon, but I’m assuming its related to the fact that there’s been almost no time to even think about it. Or I should say, in parenting terms … the usual.
HOLY HOT MESSES! SRD is in stores TODAY!!!
I’m thrilled with the way the book turned out. Which actually says a lot, cuz I’m pretty picky. The kids’ art really compliments the irreverent poetry. Now we’ll finally see if poems about plunging toilets, peanut butter on door handles, getting puked on, grinding up Star Wars figures in the garbage disposal, etc. actually appeal to the mass public. Although, in all honesty, I think people (esp. parents!) would like the poems if they knew about them. So – if you’re reading this – please let your friends and family know!
This has been a long, crazy, roller coaster ride. I really don’t know what’s going to happen. But I’m happy it’s out there. And I’ll probably continue to write silly poems about things that drive Dad nuts, even if there isn’t another book. Somebody’s gotta capture the epic irritation of sticky fridge handles, so it may as well be me. Here’s hoping for success. AND more importantly, don’t forget Dad this Father’s Day!!!
