Actually, a palinode is a specifically formal poetic retraction of an earlier poem. Like, if I wrote, “I’m rubber, you’re glue whatever you say bounces off me and sticks to you” then changed it to, “Actually, I absorb glue like a poison so please don’t kill me.”

Or a drunk monkey.
Or a drunk platypus.
The fur and the duckbill? It’s just creepy.

Thank you, Mom.
Have you seen the new Sponge Bob move? You should. It’s very, very good. Not little kid good. Just good for everybody good. And Patrick is especially good.

I’m happy to present two terrific blurbs for my and Bradley Jackson’s upcoming middle grade Christmas novel, The Naughty List (Harper-Collins, pub date 9/22/15) from best selling authors Lincoln Peirce and Tom Angleberger.
“A great story, lively drawings, and a cast of unforgettable characters. What else could you want for Christmas? The Naughty List is a book for all seasons!”
—Lincoln Peirce, bestselling author of the Big Nate series
“If you are like me you normally don’t read Christmas books because there aren’t enough robo-narwhals, submarines, refried beans, and Ninja Santas in them. Fry and Jackson just fixed that.”
—Tom Angleberger, bestselling author of the Origami Yoda series

I don’t make the rules.
I can’t be blamed.
