The Long Lost Blog Post

This year I wrote 250,529 words, which consists of two books in the Cities That Eat Islands trilogy and 2/3rds of a Radicci Sisters book. I guess that’s not bad. Was hoping to finish the RS book in the summer and then now but life didn’t go that way. I’ll have to finish it afterContinue reading “The Long Lost Blog Post”

A Call For Movie Rights

I was laying about with the kids the other day and the land line rang. I never pick up the phone. Since I have no friends, the only people I expect to call me are organizations asking for money or votes or doctors reminding us about appointments. But this time I got a strange message.Continue reading “A Call For Movie Rights”

Walking Through the Tombstones

We watched Eyes of Laura Mars with Faye Dunaway and Tommy Lee Jones. I had never seen it before. Neen has since she is all about the seventies and early eighties (disco disco) before we met. I had read the novelization and although they’re similar the visualization does add to it. Another bonus was seeingContinue reading “Walking Through the Tombstones”

Does Everyone Have An Agenda?

Worked on paperback files, some tweaking after I discovered a new trick. Now I look more like everyone else. Yay! Right. That’s what it’s all about, right? Looking like everyone one else. Until they start reading the words inside and they find out that you’re not quite like everyone else. You start making them uncomfortable.Continue reading “Does Everyone Have An Agenda?”

Safe With Your Own Kind

Watched Narrow Margin. A tense little noir with great one liners that had it all: humor, twists, violence, style, voice, and a little kid in danger. A gravel voice cop escorts a mob boss’s wife to court via train to testify but the mob wants her dead. If I see it on DVD I’ll definitelyContinue reading “Safe With Your Own Kind”

Too Busy Saving Other Kids, No Time For Their Own

Heat wave is subsiding. I’m not doing much but I have plans in July. Watched Warlock. I don’t watch many westerns except for the classics or if they stick out for some reasons. This one stick out for Richard Widmark. I’ll watch anything with him in it. I know he doesn’t seem like the typeContinue reading “Too Busy Saving Other Kids, No Time For Their Own”
