A movie?

I have been asked by my readers either  If I was going to make my novel into a movie or when I was going to do so.

I admit, with the physical humor and action, my novel lends itself well to film. Perhaps animation, but it’s not my specialty subject.

I wonder how I would go about getting it started? I admit the thought is pretty exciting.

I’m having a particularly great week

…which is a rare thing for me.

The dealing with Createspace and Bowkers for my book has been quite illuminating. Not only have I taken a crash-course in the industry, I feel like it has given me a bit more confidence when asked questions.

That and I ordered a few books for proofs. (going to give them away) Quite excited to see them!

I hope I can get them into Albertsons. Also, as I worked for Barnes & Noble, I’d really like to do a signing (or two) at a B&N.

I’d like to ride this good feeling for another few weeks at least.

The NecroNomNomNomicon: Cookbook of the Dead

Availble on Itunes, B&N, Amazon, and most other Ebook retailers.

The NNNNO’CN was read by Piers Anthony (yes, THAT Piers Anthony!)

He had this to say about it:

…a rather original story centered on fantastic cooking – literally fantastic, literally cooking – merged with a boy and dog story. It’s pretty wild from the start, with the boy’s mother a superlatively bad cook getting into a televised cooking contest, and demonic figures being fended off by the dog. There is romance along the way, and plotting by evil figures, and of course that carnivorous sheep. I think young readers will like it.

Funny choices

SO I was working at Umpqua Community College a few years ago, and I was tasked to lug 50 iPads to the student center and use them to take surveys.

Sat there ignored for hours, when a woman plops her ample posterior into the seat across from me, vapid eyes blinking.

So she wanted to do the survey, and as she did it, she was oh-so-eager to tell me how she was ¬†transferring from our modest community college, to some place … in Minnesota, I think.

Get this.

To take classes in crystal therapy, aura therapy, and past life regression.

OK, that’s her right to throw away her efforts in a real school to play make believe up north. Bravo to her. Her parents will be so proud.

But here’s the thing: ¬†A day/month/few months into the new curriculum when she realizes that she can’t actually do anything the books tell her to be doing, (except as pure delusion) will she, out of embarrassment, presumably pretend that she’s got these magic powers and contrary to everything that is real and forge ahead in her “classes”?

So, will she lose her already loose grip on reality, or snap back, feeling incredibly stupid, and attempt to continue with a real education again?

I told her that once she graduates, to be sure to look up the Amazing Randi, because he’s offered a ton of money for many years to the first person who can demonstrate the kind of abilities she’s wanting to learn.

Fuck.

Hogwart’s isn’t real, you damned hippies.

Maybe the very real debt this fraudulent school will burden her with will help teach her a genuine lesson.

…But I doubt it.
