After dozens of rejections from agents and publishers, my middle grade/young adult novel, "My Headless Son Fred and His Baby Brother Headley," has found a publisher. Dang---finally! It should be out sometime in 2017. I had came up with the idea for Fred and Headley on Bubblews (now defunct), a social writing site, where I had great followers who had urged me to write a book about my whacky zombie family. So I did. I didn't have nothing else to do. Therefore, I would like to thank my Bubblews followers for their encouragement and support. And, for getting my oddball humor. Also, a special shout out and thanks to Janet Hunt aka @jhunt , for naming Headley. She will surely be in my acknowledgment page. I'm definitely gonna have to change that pic of Fred and Headley---I can't draw a lick....

I love that idea. Good luck with that book. I hope it all works out for you. I love sick humor also. When your book comes out please let us all know. I would love to buy a copy.

Hey, thanks. I wonder if my sick humor is due to me being a sick individual--hmmm....

@theBlock You're welcome. I believe this is the year when I get an agent. I've scored m 4th partial request 24 hours ago. Anyone could do it.

@DianneN Thank you Dianne. Now, let's see if anyone will buy a copy other than me and my neighbor Mary. She can't read, but she's very supportive.

@LoriAMoore Thanks, Lori. Snow leopard publishing. I've researched the company, and I tweeted their authors---they all are happy with the publisher.
