Flip: Special Edition

December 18th, 2020 “Write drunk, edit sober.” In my twenties, I was master of the former. For a while now, though, I’ve been living by the latter. In that spirit, I wanted to revisit my second novella, Flip, with fresh eyes. I didn’t want to change the story, but I wanted to clean, clarify andContinue reading “Flip: Special Edition”

America Hearts Criminals

December 18th, 2020 America loves criminals — as long as they have the right color skin and their subjective ideals align. This post has been a long time coming, but better late than never. I’ve heard, too many times, this era being compared to prohibition. Besides being an absolutely baseless and embarrassing comparison, it remindedContinue reading “America Hearts Criminals”

I Managed To Celebrate Three Years of Sobriety in 2020

December 9th, 2020 Over the past three years, I feel like I’ve done okay. I wrote stuff. (Books, comics, songs, and over 60,000 words of blog material, to name some of it.) I did stuff (like go to conventions and concerts, on adventures and meetings). I thought stuff and I felt stuff. Like, really thoughtContinue reading “I Managed To Celebrate Three Years of Sobriety in 2020”

Introduction Version.2021

November 20th, 2020 This may be your first (or might be your one thousandth) time here, but it’s been a minute since I introduced myself, and I want this greeting to be updated for 2021. So, hi. I’m happy to see you today. My name is Dennis. I’m a lot of things — I’m theContinue reading “Introduction Version.2021”

Silver Linings My-Books

November 8th, 2020 2020 has seen a lot of dang clouds, but there are always silver linings to be found. I managed to release two works this year, and both The Weirdos: Volume I and Theia are official contenders in the 2020 Minnesota Book Awards. The Weirdos is a graphic novel about a collection ofContinue reading “Silver Linings My-Books”

Season Premiere

September 6th, 2020 When you’ve worked somewhere long enough, you start to develop your own ways to describe what it’s like when your workplace hires new people. I’ve always compared it to watching new seasons of your favorite TV show. Some seasons are better than others. They always have some sense of familiarity to them,Continue reading “Season Premiere”


September 1st, 2020 It has been a wild few weeks, and it’s all led up to this. I’m happy to announce that I’ve completed my fourth novella, Theia. To outdo myself, I’m also ecstatic to announce that it is available RIGHT NOW. That’s right: I just surprise dropped a brand new book. This is BeyonceContinue reading “Theia”

You’ve Already Done Enough

July 26th, 2020 This was crazy fun to discover tonight; it’s definitely a highlight of my summer. Like so many before me, I feel like I artistically wasted my twenties (despite releasing three albums [with accompanying music videos], playing countless shows, putting out a web series, publishing three novellas, blah blah blah). Then you findContinue reading “You’ve Already Done Enough”


July 23rd, 2020 This is probably the only time I’ll ever get to be an exhibitor at San Diego Comic-Con. And also be able to bring my dog. Due to the pandemic, this year’s main event has become Comic-Con@Home, and since we nerds, geeks and weird folk go entirely all out regardless of the situation,Continue reading “Comic-Con@Home”
