It's here! We've been working on this off and on for a while now. Sadly, Hacking the System (available on Amazon!) didn't get picked up for another season. So . . . we're moving forward with something a little different. A little more irresponsible. A little more dangerous. The first episode of the Modern Rogue is upon us. So go check it out and, while you're at it, subscribe! Click the pic above to go straight there. (more past the break!)
And while you're at it, sign up for the mailing list, why don't ya. It's over on the right. Go ahead . . . I'll wait.
THE FORCE AWAKENS
What, you didn't think I'd go an entire blog post without talking about Star Wars, did you? I'm certainly excited to see it, but it's strange. My level of excitement is something that I've lived with for so long - along with the barrage of marketing - that I think I'm becoming numb to it. It's kind of disappointing. I guess there is too much of a good thing.
Knowing very little about the story, here's a prediction:
Han Solo dies.
I know that's already been speculated quite a bit, but I think it's going to happen. Ford wanted them to kill Solo a long time ago. Maybe this will be the sendoff he deserves. I just hope the new cast can fill those boots.
A huge THANK YOU to all of you who took the time to read the story on Amazon or listened to it on SoundCloud. There's a link over to the right, if you want to check out the audio book. It's about 10-12 minutes of your life, and not a bad read.
I wrote the short for a contest a while back. 2000 word limit! That was challenging, to say the least. Many of you have remarked that you wanted more of that particular tale. It certainly has me thinking. I'm sure I'll revisit the dark canals of LA in the future.
Oh, and if you liked this or Homunculus in the Fresh Meat anthology, please head over to Amazon and give me a kind review, won't you? I would greatly appreciate it. Do it HERE.
And now, on to more of YOUR work!
I speak from experience when I tell you that film making is not for the weak. It requires a level of fortitude, persistence, and exacting detail that most people don't possess. I learned the hard way that I don't possess any of those qualities. Zak, on the other hand, thinks he's up to the task. The fact that he has a completed short film up for your approval is testament to the fact that Yes, he does have what it takes.
Please go give his short film a watch HERE. If you like it, be sure to spread it around. Show him some love!
SCOTT HEXX COCKS
Another poor soul, adopting the wretched existence of a lowly writer. My friend, Scott, is apparently a writing machine. His scifi tale, Invictus Alpha, is already well into season 2.
But I have to ask - Do you have delicate sensibilities? Are you easily offended? Are you a child or a coward? No? Then venture forth and read his tales. They are decidedly NSFW. I would expect nothing less from the type I associate with.
