Weekly Update – July 11, 2017

Some of you might have seen the early bird announcement on my social media outlets yesterday, but I am finally launching a weekly newsletter.

My goal is to offer some of the same material you see here every week, but offer some newsletter-specific content to make it a different experience than the website.

To sweeten the pot, I will send a free copy of Cheap Thrills Digest to everyone who signs up for the newsletter this week! Simply submit your name and e-mail address, and the first 500 people who sign up will get a free e-book!

So follow this link and sign up today!

Weekly Update – June 6, 2017

Yes, another slow weekend has come and gone, but the coming weekend is ALL MINE! Veronica is heading to NJ for some family time, so I have three full days of writing goodness ahead, and I’m going to be tackling the final action sequence — for which I have some choice 80s action films lined up to keep me motivated.

WRITING PROJECTS

The Adventures of Strongarm & LightfootBlades of Glory: First draft is at 54,000 words. Got quite a bit of writing to do before it’s a good length.

Action Figures – Issue Seven: The Black End War: Second draft finished, third draft in process.

Action Figures – Issue Eight: Crawling from the Wreckage: Second draft finished.

Action Figures – Issue Nine: Rough plotting in progress.

Tomorrow afternoon I’ll be chatting with Connie Dowell for the Book Echoes Podcast. The episode is tentatively scheduled for a July broadcast so look for it!

Finally, if you haven’t already, go see Wonder Woman. I’m not going to pretend it was an absolutely perfect film, but my personal quibbles are teeny-tiny and, ultimately, irrelevant. It got everything right where it counted, namely how it portrayed Diana and never forgetting that she was the hero of the story. Bonus: it has Robin “Princess Buttercup” Wright looking fierce and bad-ass — and at 51 years old, when Hollywood is too often ignoring perfectly capable actresses for any role, much less such an action-oriented one.
