Shameless Self-Promotion: Are You Prepared for Father’s Day?

A gentle nudge: If you’re looking for a Dad’s Day gift for a fella with school-age children, you can do worse than my book SNIP, BURN, SOLDER, SHRED: Seriously Geeky Stuff to Make with Your Kids. Fully certified dads have said stuff like:

This is the stuff that magic and dreams are made of in childhood, at least for those kids who have the idea that magic can be handmade. Snip, Burn, Solder, Shred is a seriously cool book.


This book is full of great innovative ideas to engage you and your kids for quite some time. What I loved most was that this book provided step-by-step directions that left nothing to chance. Instead it spelled everything out making it simple, even though your kids will simply think that you are cool! I mean how many dads can say that they built their own electric guitar? I don’t know many that is for sure!


Seriously: order this soon.

(That last one’s from Rob Malda, founder of, and really nice cat.)

If you really want to stick it to The Man, you can always order directly from the publisher. You’ll get the ebooks (including a Kindle version) *FREE*, and if you use the coupon code SHRED you’ll save 35 percent.
Order soonishly from whoever and the book is sure to arrive in time for Father’s Day.
Alternately, if your dad or hubby is into clockwork sex robots, maybe try this steampunk novella on Kindle–or the supercool, handmade print chapbook.
So, that’s my pitch. Thank you, and goodnight!
