What Do We Do?
What's Our Deal?
Our story actually begins in 2013, when a mystery chronic illness forced Founder and Chief Creative Officer Kyle A. Johnson from the classroom for the first time. He rekindled his love of writing, using it as an escape from the illness. Working whenever he could, Kyle chipped away at various writing projects. A few of those projects were published by other companies, but others were unsuccessfully queried. They remained locked away, quietly sobbing to themselves. Then, Kyle decided to go for it. In October of 2019, the idea of Dapper Moose Entertainment was born to spread happiness to the world in the form of books and games (the silly t-shirts came later). Less than a year later, we are publishing our first book. The Cacklecoggler is the first of those stories to be released because of the strong belief in its message, humor, and memorable characters.
Eventually, Dapper Moose Entertainment will publish work from other authors in the genres listed above. We apologize, but we cannot accept submissions at this time.
