Do Your Job, Homicidal

Little work on The Collection. This rate I can be done editing by next week. Completed some house projects I’ve been putting off because of the novel. Summer is looming and the kids will be out soon. Finally vacation and can leave the city. Finished Homicidal. Liked it a lot. Ripped off Psycho at theContinue reading “Do Your Job, Homicidal”

Little Seen and Hugely Disliked

No work today. Ordered a proof of Bawling Sugar Soul which finally came through. Last year someone was publishing the samples of the novels under my name on Kindle. I put a stop to it but Amazon red flagged my novels so that when I later revised the works they asked for proof of ownership.Continue reading “Little Seen and Hugely Disliked”

Weird and Oppressive

More revisions on Cities That Eat Islands. Tomorrow I should be done. Started watching Part 2 of Luc Besson’s Arthur and the Invisibles. Part 1 was pretty good, which I saw earlier this year. Part leads right into part 3 so I have that to look forward to tomorrow. So far I’m enjoying the mixContinue reading “Weird and Oppressive”

The Long Post and the Threat of Regression

FRIDAY Kids had a half a day so the teachers can leave early from work and prepare for their three day week end. Damn the unions. So I managed to complete a little computer work. Not able to get much done with BOTH kids home. Watched Michael Mann’s Manhunter. Been a while since I’ve seenContinue reading “The Long Post and the Threat of Regression”

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?”

Like They Faked The Landing On The Moon

More work on Cities that Eat Islands. More revising than usual. More action going on and more psychic play with Carmella in the climax so it was required. Much happier with it. See how it reads on Thursday. D is sick again. Strep. Swear the schools are petri dishes of diseases. Home schooling is soContinue reading “Like They Faked The Landing On The Moon”

Not Believe In The Media

Started this weeks new batch of pages for Cities That Eat Islands. Down to the last part and all that leads to the climax. Ka-ching. I imagine there will be a lot of tweaking. Started Mark Miller’s Hellraiser: The Toll. A novella that’s placed between Barker’s novella and his novel the Scarlet Gospels. So far soContinue reading “Not Believe In The Media”

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”

Please Excuse The Explosion And Carry On With Your Day.

And research goes on. Focusing on Albert Fish. For those not in the know he was a cannibal who ate children and was caught in the 1930s. He was in his sixties when the police apprehended him. A sick fellow who always fascinated me. For decades I was only able to find him in chaptersContinue reading “Please Excuse The Explosion And Carry On With Your Day.”

Autism is Evil. WTF? How did we get stuck with this?

You see/hear it on the web or on television or at your dining room table on the holidays. Anti vaccination rants. Vaccinations cause autism. I saw a video recently about triplets. Perfectly fine and happy, as stated by the parents. They showed a picture of them, the babies. No video. Then the parents took themContinue reading “Autism is Evil. WTF?
