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”

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”

Always Trust Your Agent, Not

Little revising on Cities That Eat Islands and I’m done. Started this draft at 80,000 words. After cutting, pasting, and writing, I’m left with a 83,500 word novel. I’m happy with it. It’s a good part one to a trilogy. I’m geared up for part two, which I hope to start in September when theContinue reading “Always Trust Your Agent, Not”

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”

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”

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”

They Always Get What’s Coming To Them

Finished this week’s editing goal for Cities That Eat Islands. Next week is the last week on the novel. Snuck some computer work on the store. Celebrated my 15 year wedding anniversary with Neen. Were supposed to go to FM at Noon but turned out they didn’t open until 1PM. Considering the time limit withContinue reading “They Always Get What’s Coming To Them”

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”
