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”

Purfield, best known as the creator of the highly rated and long running ‘Miki Radicci’ series, which reveals Purfield’s continued talent for quirky, unconventional characters struggling through realistic, tense, and desperate situations.

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”

Cake

Worked on The Collection for a bit. Voted for Senator. Squeezed in stuff around the house. Started watching William Castle’s Homicidal. Starts off pretty good. Great first reel. Surprised how gory it was. I’ll have to finish it tomorrow. The war between the Libs and the Cons wages on. The latest upset with the SupremeContinue reading “Cake”

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”
