Alien vs. Predator

I’m a big sci-fi fan, but after watching the third offering I came away dissatisfied. The plot i.e. predator (the good guy?) on a mission to rid hick-town America of loose aliens, and the predator/alien hybrid (the bad guy), works up to a point, but the people (with whom I wanted to identify) were little more than alien cannon fodder. The second Alien vs Predator was human led and therefore a better film in my view.

I'm thinking of how to promote The Deluge in new and original ways. YouTube is an accessible tool that is begging to be used, but the content has to be right.

Lights! Camera! Action!

I’m assisting on the set of pilot sit-com ‘Cut & Blow’ being filmed a few minutes down the road. Wow, has it ever been an eye-opener – not only the process, but the characters are an education and I don’t just mean the cast! I’ve bothered everyone with questions and have plans for a TV scene in my next novel.

Fallen between two novels

I’m lost, all over the place, like someone has asked me to complete a jigsaw and I've got boxing gloves on. I don’t know whether to keep editing the first novel or pick up and run with the second. Each stage of writing brings its dilemmas, its weird little emotional hurdles. Keep calm, carry on. No choice? No. Was there ever? No. OK.
