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”

Does Everyone Have An Agenda?

Worked on paperback files, some tweaking after I discovered a new trick. Now I look more like everyone else. Yay! Right. That’s what it’s all about, right? Looking like everyone one else. Until they start reading the words inside and they find out that you’re not quite like everyone else. You start making them uncomfortable.Continue reading “Does Everyone Have An Agenda?”

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”

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”
