The List: Epics, 1975, & Penile Silicone Injections

1. Simple Men is now available in Spanish and Italian. I'd read them, but I'm not a very... cunning linguist. Yeah. I know. That joke doesn't really work in that instance. STOP JUDGING ME!!

2. The film I have the LEAST amount of interest in seeing this year: LINCOLN. I haven't liked a Spielberg film since A.I. There was a time when I looked forward to everything he made. Oh, Steven. Why hast we grown apart so?

3. This week's great publicity idea: get each of my artist friends - HVH, Patrick Fillion, Absolutbleu, Charlie Esquiaqui, Gus, etc. - to illustrate a scene from one of my books or stories of their choosing. I'll provide the book. I'm not certain what I'll do with the pieces yet - an art show maybe? Right now I'm just loving the idea.

4. I reached 1975 friends on Facebook last week. That's my birthyear!

5. My older comic book about a female pirate, "The Blackbeard Legacy", was re-released on Amazon. Get you some on Kindle, matey! HERE 

6. Did everyone read my interview of EPIC PROPORTIONS over at The Inspiration Forum? No? Well, HERE you go.

7. Walked into Rue 21 last Thursday whilst out shopping with my sister and immediately felt old and uncool. So I went to the GAP and bought a couple of cardigans.

8. Penile silicone injections. This is grotesque and dangerous, but fascinating. Honestly, I'd like to touch it. I'm definitely going to base a character on a guy like this and I have just the outline for him. You can watch the video: HERE

  1. You do comic books, too? With female protagonists??? Amazing.

    I'm curious as to how you managed to get "Simple Men" published in Spanish and Italian.

    And I would recommend the video of the penile silicone injections video to anyone wanting to lose weight. One look at it would make them lose their appetite for weeks.

    1. Well, just that one series with a female protagonist so far. The next one of very VERY gay.

      My publisher Dreamspinner decided to publish those two in 4 different languages because of their sales here in the States. I'm interested in seeing how well they do.

      Isn't that the strangest video? Wow.

    1. I'm left wondering what will happen when he's old and no longer injecting.

  4. I'm not much of a cunning linguist either. However, I am an expert anilinguist.

    Note to Eric Arvin's butt

  5. Re the video. On the one hand, I want to hold his stuff in my hand, or my hands rather, just to see what it feels like and how much it weighs.

    On the other hand, if you weren't so goddamned cute I'd have to smack you for making me watch that. Though if you'd like to be smacked.....
