The really great News!

New agent alert! Going forward I’ll be represented by the great and noble Stuart Miller.

Stu has spent decades as a Hollywood-based talent agent and consultant, primarily in the literary and packaging fields, with considerable operational and management experience. Worldwide contacts and relationships include top executives, talent and creative artists at agencies, networks, studios, distributors, independent production companies, book publishers, technology and software companies.

SHAZAM! July 3rd and I SOLD SHOPPING CART A ROAD NOIR! This, I am proud to report, is the second sweetest deal ever for me. More news as it comes.

BOOM! The third draft of the new novel Perfect Lingerie is DONE! This has taken months. Right now I’m in the wonderful quiet zone, the cooling twilight as it were, where I can work in the garden and generally mellow the fuck out. Off to my new agent at the end of next week.

IN OTHER NEWS! First up, filming for The Kinjiku is complete. Stay tuned to WillFightEvil4Food@wordpress for updates. This entire thing has been a blast, but paradoxically a shit ton of super fuckin’ boring hard work too. All these movies we love? The great shows on television (GOT, Happy, Patriot, Barry, the late and lamented Daredevil) well, behind the scenes? Mofos are busting ass. All the photos up on this site are stills and whatnot.

An investigative journalist is on the verge of breaking the story of his career, and all he needs is a single interview to give the article wings. The Kinjiku is the most exclusive bar in the world and ground zero for a burgeoning black market stock exchange. More than four trillion US dollars move through the underworld annually, and The Kinjiku is where colossal deals are made, where desperate futures are modeled, and where elite shadows and apex kingpins cross pollinate. The New York Stock Exchange began in the Tontine Coffee House on the corner of Wall Street and Water, and underwriters, traffickers, slave traders and politicians wrote an American rule book for supply and demand that would domino through time. The Kinjiku is much the same, though much can be made of a menu. The Tontine served black coffee and spirits to fire the trading. The Kinjiku is the speakeasy answer to molecular gastronomy and serves rare whiskies and liquors microdosed with select toxins engineered to produce a variety of unique highs. Every glass comes with a bullet you’re meant to swallow like a vitamin.

the sweet sonifications of Fencepost Beckenshire

The most commonly asked questions about my novel Knottspeed, A Love Story are answered here. No spoilers, but this is what happened to Fencepost, the hard drinking piano player from the novel. What did he find when he went looking for the place postcards come from? This. Look in the Free Short Story Of The Month archive. I was going to sell it for a pitiful even grand, but fuck that. I’d rather give it away so I did.
