It’s October 30! That means BIG NEWS!
Everybody’s Favorite Book goes on sale today!
A few people have asked me what I plan to do to celebrate this occasion. My answer, I’m afraid, is: Cut My Weed-Choked Lawn. There is nothing quite like a weed-choked lawn to keep a person humble.
That said, if you’re in New Jersey this weekend, come visit me (and get a signed book)! I’m appearing at The Bookworm in Bernardsville on Saturday, November 3, at 11 am, and Little City Books in Hoboken on Sunday, November 4, at 11 am.

Googling how most authors celebrate their opening sales day, mowing their weed-choked lawn comes in at #57. It’s ranked right above cleaning out the refrigerator.
This is what makes you so special, Mike—why go out to dinner and spend the first anticipated royalty check with loved ones when the lawn shows the world how much you care? Yup—and a hearty congrats!🍾🎊🎈
LOL! Congrats and HOOray Hooray! It’s Everybody’s Favorite Day! OK, getting too rhymey here, so just going to go buy the book…
If you’re buying the book, feel free to be as rhyme-y as you please!
Actually the lawn shows the world just how much I *don’t* care. That’s the problem!
And thanks for the kind words, my friend!
Thus the ranking…
Congratulations! Happy lawn mowing.
Lawn mowing is pretty much the task that guarantees I will *not* be happy. But, for you, I’ll try!
You are going to actually GO to Hoboken?
Funny story….At 18 months my second son got sick of ‘what does the cow say?’ moo; what does a pig say’ oink. So I started doing city/states to him. I’d go through all the ones that everyone can think of: NY NY, Los Angles…etc. One day I threw in Hoboken, NJ and he just started laughing. He would NEVER say it. Just sit there and LAUGH.
Why is that?
Hoboken is a fun name to say. It’s not as fun as Walla Walla, Washington, but it’s close!
I think I did Walla Walla too and he would giggle but say it. Hoboken never came outta his mouth. LOL
Congratulations! Santa will be buying your book to bring down our chimney!
Santa is the coolest dude. Thank him for me, won’t you?
I’m so exited!! I got my shipping confirmation yesterday!! I can’t wait to get them! 😉
Huzzah! Thanks, Courtney!
Congratulations, and I wish you much success with your book!
Thanks so much, Becky! If you pick up a copy, let me know what you think!
Congrats, Mike! Feeling tingling sensations up and down my spine knowing your beautiful book is finally in the world. Have a blast!
Thank you, good sir. And every book you touch is a beautiful book. Here’s hoping my cow tale (or whatever) will bring us together again!
I just got the email that says my books have shipped. I can’t wait. Any chance of you coming to Canada for book signings?
I do loooove Canada, but have no plans to head to the Great White North this year.
When I do go that way, however, I will let you know. Promise!
Damn, I wish I lived closer!! I would be there for sure.
I would never allow you to subject yourself to The Garden State Parkway.
Phew! I will be there in spirit. 😀
Congrats on the book, Mike. It looks like so much fun. I hope your signings are a blast and the sale through the roof!
From your words to God’s ears! Mikey needs a new kitchen.
Mine was delivered first thing this morning.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, Jude! If you like it, please consider leaving a review on Amazon or wherever.
CONGRATS, Mike! I can’t wait to see this (and your other recent) books! I busted my wrist back in July and STILL can’t drive. Basically it’s DRIVING me NUTS! I haven’t been to B&N in 4 months *sigh* I hope all’s well with you and your infested lawn 😀 😉
THERE you are! Thanks for the kind words, my friend. And, sheesh, get better!
As for my lawn, well, let’s just say I’ll look forward to the days when ice and snow can cover up all the ugly.
