The Daddy Complex

It happened.
Book. Deal.
The good folks at Knock Knock, a super-rad publishing house, have seen fit to make a book based on my CTFD Method post, which went kinda cray-cray on the Intertubes. (Knock Knock brought you Coolness Graphed, based on the Tumblr of the same name, and also published a book called How To Traumatize Your Children. So, y’know, match made in HEAVEN.)
Needless to say, I’m totally stoked. It’s slated for a Spring 2015 release. That may seem like a long way away, but quality takes time. Patience is a virtue. Good things come to those who wait. You got your chocolate in my peanut butter. You got your peanut butter on my chocolate.
There are a lot of people who helped make this happen, but the person I’d like to thank right now is you. Yes, you. Stop looking over your shoulder, I’m talking to you, handsome. By the way, I think that jacket really brings out your eyes.
The Tumblr community (that’s the “you” of which I speak) made my CTFD Method a hit with parents, non-parents and humorless Internet trolls alike, so thanks. Just don’t expect any residuals, you beatnik.
And for those of you who think a book deal comes with immediate benefits, I celebrated the achievement with a dinner of leftover meatloaf and stale potato chips. Well, that and a $50 glass of scotch served to me by a rare Yangtze river dolphin.
