New Releases and Patreon

It’s finally here. Two years in the making. Book one will be released on June 28th and then the others will follow in July and August. Mixing Sarah Paretsky and Andrew Vachss into a noir urban fantasy, the author of the Miki Radicci series delivers a tense and twisted thriller of epic proportion. It waitsContinue reading “New Releases and Patreon”

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”

The Answer Is a Headline or a Meme

Found three images to work with for the cover of A Sandwich Can’t Stop a Bullet. Each one has a human factor in it. I’ll play around with them and see which one I’ll send to the designer later. Watched the last two parts of the Puppet Master Axis trilogy, Axis Rising and Axis Termination.Continue reading “The Answer Is a Headline or a Meme”

Eating Quite the Monster

No work done. Went to writing group in the late afternoon. Family stuff. Last night we finished Season of the Witch and watched the conversation between Romero and Guillermo Del Toro. I miss George. So glad I met him when I did. Next few weeks should be busy with the kids ending school and M’sContinue reading “Eating Quite the Monster”

Neuro Typical Fantasy

Wrote a few hundred pages for Cities That Eat Islands this morning. To flesh out a minor character and give the closing a bit of a pay off. While walking around and doing errands I met Kiko who was panhandling at the drug store in front of the court house. Got to talking about moviesContinue reading “Neuro Typical Fantasy”

Don’t You Have A Filter?

More work on Cities that Eat Islands. Submitted cover to designer for paperback version Bawling Sugar Soul. D was home sick today. Helped him with his essay. A ridiculous subject. A hard one. Finding common ground between the Europeans, the Native Americans, and the African Americans in 1492. Gonna need some creative writing for thisContinue reading “Don’t You Have A Filter?”

Shit Like That Doesn’t Happen Anymore

Friday Night Watched Nicholas Ray’s On Dangerous Ground. Was impressed how gritty it was. Even when it moved to the rural upstate New York setting. Robert Ryan was great as the violent cop who faced his literal demons. Through out the picture I was wondering where I had seen him before and remembered him inContinue reading “Shit Like That Doesn’t Happen Anymore”

A Bitch and A Blessing

Started next forty pages of editing for Cities That Eat Islands. Still a solid first draft. Mostly cutting useless words, rephrasing grammar, and moving word order. The benefit of editing as you go when writing the first draft. Still proud of what I wrote. Still the best I wrote so far. Paper back cover forContinue reading “A Bitch and A Blessing”

To Wake During The Closing Credits

Friday Night Watched Fred Olen Ray’s Deep Space. Kind of like the remake if The Blob. The dates of the two are close. Note sure who ripped off who. A man made government creation comes down from space and starts killing people in LA. The creature FX were pretty good for the budget. The copsContinue reading “To Wake During The Closing Credits”

Finished revision goal for Cities That Eat Islands. Submitted work order for paper back cover for Surly Girly. Started watching Toxic Avenger. Hoping to get up to part three. One of the greatest super hero movies ever made. Always chokes me up. And I’m not saying that because he’s from New Jersey. So over sensitizedContinue reading
