“The Ardent Admirer” is undergoing a bit of re-tooling to make it a little more readable and therefore more appealing. That means a slightly higher body count as it is a comedy of errors and death. People who have read the book have liked it a lot.
“Negri Jilts Chaplin” is in a rough draft: blackmail, S&M, and the engagement of Charlie Chaplin to Pola Negri all rolled up into one nasty little package. Went a bit overboard on the sex scenes…will have to either scale this back or publish under a pseudonym.
“Zombie Valentino”: Yep, it’s what the title says it is.
“The Bureau of Lost Films”: silent pictures meet sci-fi with a time-traveling film collector and the Gish sisters as lethal assassins. The first of a planned trilogy.
“The Haunted Palace:”: a story of a man being haunted by a ghost: of a long-forgotten movie palace.
Where do the ideas come from? Basically, the stories are what I might like to read about. With the big bio of Pola Negri taking up a good chunk of my time–and the need to find a real paying job–I’m not writing as much as I would like. Hoping to change that soon.
Hugs. Kisses–and all that. Write on!
