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”

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”

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”

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”

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”
