News on THE MYTH HUNTER

To the left, you’ll see the revised cover for The Myth Hunter. This change came about after a friend pointed out that the font I had used for the previous design, which was Papyrus, was a big mistake. You’d think being a guy who cut his teeth in the publishing world by doing comic book…

The Green Hornet (2011)

THE GREEN HORNET (2011) Directed by Michel Gondry Written by Seth Green and Evan Goldberg Starring Seth Rogen, Jay Chou, Christoph Waltz and Cameron Diaz Every so often, there comes a movie that raises the bar. That manages to do something really special and is able to speak to people in a very personal way.…

Censoring Huck Finn

There’s a pretty big furor right now in my homeland (the United States) over censorship of Mark Twain’s classic novel, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Twain “scholar” (and I use that term very lightly, which I’ll get to shortly) Alan Gribben has put out a censored version which replaces the volatile word “nigger” with “slave” and replaces…

The Write Place

The only thing you really need to write is something to write on and nowadays, technology has made that even easier. These days, you can even do it on your cell phone (although this is definitely not a method I prefer). But all you really need is something to write on. It can be a…

Cover for THE MYTH HUNTER

The Myth Hunter is my fourth novel, the second to be published through Pulpwork Press. The release date hasn’t been finalized yet, but it’s looking to be sometime in early 2011. Like Love & Bullets, The Myth Hunter is also the beginning of a series of books. This one features Elisa Hill. In this world,…

Tech Tools of the Trade

I’m something of a tech geek. And by that I don’t mean I’m some sort of computer genius. Far from it, actually. But there are quite a few programs I like to use in conjunction with my writing. I know some people may be groaning here so allow me to clarify — technology isn’t a…

Uncompleted Projects

November is National Novel Write Month or NaNoWriMo for short. The goal is to start a book from scratch on November 1st and have it completed by November 30th and the length has to be a minimum of 50,000 words (you can plot in advance but you can’t do any of the actual writing of…

Writing Update

I’ve just completed the first draft of Outlaw Blues. This book is the second novel in the Infernum series, which began with Love & Bullets. Outlaw Blues features an Infernum assassin named Carl Flint, who characters may remember made a very, very minor but very significant appearance in Love & Bullets. (And if you haven’t…

Dracula Lives!

I’m going to admit something here and now, something which I’m sure my fellow horror fans will probably want to flay me alive for even thinking, let alone giving voice to: I’m not a fan of Bram Stoker’s Dracula. I’m not sure what it is, but something about the book just doesn’t appeal to me.…

The Sea Witch

I first discovered Joel Jenkins when I read Dire Planet. This is the first book of Joel’s I’ve read that took place in the real world, so to speak, so it was interesting to see how Joel’s style translates in a non-fantasy setting. Needless to say, I was not disappointed. The Sea Witch introduces us…

Let’s Talk Crow

Anyone who knows me very well will know that I have some very firmly-held beliefs. Among these beliefs is that The Crow starring Brandon Lee is one of the greatest films of all time. As a lonely young teenager, the story of Eric Draven made my life bearable. Like many people, that first movie is…

A New Beginning

Even though I registered for this site about a month ago, I’ve just now actually added all the relevant content to it. For those of you who are coming here from my previous website, welcome. I hope you’ll find this site more visually appealing as well as easier to navigate. I know I do. For…
