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”

PULL the Tail

Summer approaches and the heat has increased here. Today has gotten so hot that the schools decided on a half day for the kids. I think it only reached 92 as of now. Not that hot but hot enough. Different from when I was a kid. I don’t remember schools closing because of the heat.Continue reading “PULL the Tail”

I’m an Anti-Social X-Man

Worked on the Sandwich paperback file. 150 pages of shorts. Love how Garamond looks. Maybe I’ll have the cover ready by the end of the month. CS has improved their template since the last time I used it or it just works better on the writing program I used. Either way, it went a lotContinue reading “I’m an Anti-Social X-Man”

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”

Medical Torture For Something There Is No Cure For

Finished the edits on the collection, which is now called A Sandwich Can’t Stop a Bullet. It’s pulled from one of the shorts inside. Hopefully the title is catchy and noir enough. I still have time to change it. Also wrote the publishing history page for the previously pubbed shorts. Just have to do someContinue reading “Medical Torture For Something There Is No Cure For”

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”
