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”

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”

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”

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”

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”

Passing Out All Over The Place

Lots of computer work today. Think I finalized the store files. If anyone wants to snag cheaper versions of my work they can do so in the THE STORE. Just have to work on the copy a bit. Then I’ll finish uploading the files to major retail outlets where people can pay a higher price.Continue reading “Passing Out All Over The Place”

Recognizable Voice

Computer work today. Revised my YA files. Half way done. Got me thinking of writing YA again. Straight YA without any crime or weirdness. In a way, I did with the sequel to Jesus Freakz earlier this year. Not a big seller right now but that’s okay. I still play around with the genre inContinue reading “Recognizable Voice”
