My Nemesis Matt Betts Takes Over My Blog!

Matt is just the worst. THE WORST.  He’s been my nemesis for years and he just won’t stop. Won’t stop writing poetry, won’t stop putting out books, won’t stop being successful, etc etc. Such a jerk. Anyway, he has a brand new book titled The Boogeyman’s Intern that I may or may not have read months and months ago (I did) and … Read More

Ahhh! My Books Are Out This Friday!
