I definitely want to thank I.A. Watson for yesterday’s guest blog — I thought it was a pretty cool essay on the history of pulp covers, taking into account the way society has changed over the years. Good stuff. I’ve been very happy with both of the guest blogs we’ve run and I hope to do more in the future. I don’t want to overdo it, of course… spacing them out will make them a bit more special, I believe.
Got some AMAZING news about the Liberty Girl book yesterday. You can’t believe how much I want to share it with all of you… but I can’t. Tommy Hancock warned me of dire consequences if I revealed it too soon. Suffice to say, it’s really awesome and some of you will have your jaws hit the floor when you hear it. I know mine did! While I haven’t gotten exceedingly rich doing this, I have had a lot of my childhood dreams come true… from getting to work with people like Will Meugniot to having my characters appear on posters and toys… it’s been an amazing, thrilling ride. I honestly don’t think I deserve it — but I’ll certainly take it! This news is that kind of thing… it just boggles my little fanboy mind.
Anyway, I”m still working on this Pulse Fiction story. I’m about 3,000 words away from the end and it can’t come quickly enough. Fun characters, fun plot, but I’ve struggled with every word. You guys know how fast I usually write but these 10,000 words have moved like molasses. Anyone want to finish off this story for me? LOL
I’m expecting to get the edits back on the new edition of Rabbit Heart any day now. Hopefully I can go through those and knock it out, allowing Pro Se to move into production. Liberty Girl and Tales of The Rook Volume Two are both in the works, as well, so you might get a bunch of Reese Unlimited stuff in time for the holiday shopping season!
Oh, and for you Shadow fans out there — The Shadow Fan’s Podcast Episode 52 was just released and is ready for downloading. This week I gush about the announcement of a Shadow vs. Grendel series before reviewing an old radio episode and a 1943 novel pitting The Shadow against The Black Dragon. Good times.
