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”

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”

Always Trust Your Agent, Not

Little revising on Cities That Eat Islands and I’m done. Started this draft at 80,000 words. After cutting, pasting, and writing, I’m left with a 83,500 word novel. I’m happy with it. It’s a good part one to a trilogy. I’m geared up for part two, which I hope to start in September when theContinue reading “Always Trust Your Agent, Not”

Weird and Oppressive

More revisions on Cities That Eat Islands. Tomorrow I should be done. Started watching Part 2 of Luc Besson’s Arthur and the Invisibles. Part 1 was pretty good, which I saw earlier this year. Part leads right into part 3 so I have that to look forward to tomorrow. So far I’m enjoying the mixContinue reading “Weird and Oppressive”

Neuro Typical Fantasy

Wrote a few hundred pages for Cities That Eat Islands this morning. To flesh out a minor character and give the closing a bit of a pay off. While walking around and doing errands I met Kiko who was panhandling at the drug store in front of the court house. Got to talking about moviesContinue reading “Neuro Typical Fantasy”

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”

Don’t You Have A Filter?

More work on Cities that Eat Islands. Submitted cover to designer for paperback version Bawling Sugar Soul. D was home sick today. Helped him with his essay. A ridiculous subject. A hard one. Finding common ground between the Europeans, the Native Americans, and the African Americans in 1492. Gonna need some creative writing for thisContinue reading “Don’t You Have A Filter?”

Like They Faked The Landing On The Moon

More work on Cities that Eat Islands. More revising than usual. More action going on and more psychic play with Carmella in the climax so it was required. Much happier with it. See how it reads on Thursday. D is sick again. Strep. Swear the schools are petri dishes of diseases. Home schooling is soContinue reading “Like They Faked The Landing On The Moon”

Not Believe In The Media

Started this weeks new batch of pages for Cities That Eat Islands. Down to the last part and all that leads to the climax. Ka-ching. I imagine there will be a lot of tweaking. Started Mark Miller’s Hellraiser: The Toll. A novella that’s placed between Barker’s novella and his novel the Scarlet Gospels. So far soContinue reading “Not Believe In The Media”
