The Dorkman Cometh

Just a few more days until our novel, Dorkman, is released by OnStage Publishing. Stay tuned for more information and the address for the new Dorkman website!!

Here's a sneak peek at the cover art and the back-of-the-book blurb:


The last thing Cole Erickson needs right now is a distraction.

Improving his swing before baseball season and steeling his nerve to talk to the ravishing Ashley Knutson are all that matters. Unfortunately, he’s just made the cataclysmic mistake of speaking to a stranger-than-strange kid that everyone at Jackson Middle School calls:

Dorkman.

Spawned from a naturalistic humanitarian mother, Gordon "Dorkman" Dorfmueller lives in a bug- and cat-infested house, dresses like something a thrift store vomited, and acts like he just arrived from one of the comic book worlds he spends all of his time drawing. As far as Cole is concerned, Dorkman is a complete waste of space.

But Dorkman begins to follow him everywhere: his classes... home... even the bathroom in his quest to become Cole’s new best friend. Nothing seems to stop him. And Cole fears that his popularity and his chances with Ashley have just been flushed. Things couldn’t be worse.

That is, until Cole’s friends decide to take matters into their own hands and subject Dorkman to a series of escalating pranks that ultimately humiliate Gordon and change Cole's life forever.

Beware! The Dorkman cometh!
