MONSTER Review

True Crime Author RJ Parker reviewed my novel MONSTER on Amazon with 5 stars. He liked COLD BLOODED enough to put MONSTER on his reading list and review it. Mr. Parker likes my action and humor, so if you get a kick out of his review, please click the YES button. He's not on my payroll, but I'm thinking of adding him.  :)

I finished my YA novel DEMON on Sunday. I'm working on editing, presentation synopsis, and query with all my extra minutes in the day. It was exciting putting The End at the finish on DEMON. As always it takes a while for the publishing business to kill the dream. DEMON will soon join HARDCASE, LAYLA, THE PROTECTORS, and KATE HATES BASEBALL on the query trail with the other fading dreams.  :)   I'm thirty thousand words into a WIP titled BOTTOMLESS PIT. It's a sequel to my politically incorrect novel ARCHANGEL that I'm having fun with.

On an interesting note to my other dreaming friends I actually wrote to Paul Bettany's manager about the fact after watching his performance in  'Demons and Angels' he was the face I pictured when I wrote COLD BLOODED. I pitched my novel as a great vehicle for Mr. Bettany as Nick McCarty and his wife Jennifer Connelly as a perfect pick for my character Rachel Hunter. Seeing the movie 'Priest' reminded me how terrific Bettany would be in a movie of COLD BLOODED. Hey... dream big... right?   :)

Dream big or go home. If I could I'd have Sanaa Lathan play my heroine in every book to movie.

It is funny how movie characters, or people we meet sometimes stick in our heads as we write, Sofia. I remember watching Paul Bettany in that sequel to The Da Vinci Code as the assassin, and his face stayed in my head the whole time writing COLD BLOODED. Yep... dream big. :)

I think it has a lot to do with tone. Or at least a visual tone. It's one of those writerly wispy things that's hard to pin down, but if you can it helps the story. I can go through several pictures of the same actor and finally There. It sets the tone of the character and it's something I can go back to when I get lost. It's why I swear by collages.

But, if you do get Paul Bettany to respond you must post it. lol

I tend to dream big, and bizarre!

If anything comes of a COLD BLOODED movie, Sofia, I'll be sure to post it. :)

I've put the bizarre behind me into my checkered past, Charles, and am only going for dreaming big now. :)

That is so great, Bernard! Congratulations.

Thanks Rick. It hasn't meant much other than reaching a few more readers... but it's something. I think I'll buy a lottery ticket tonight. I'd have a better chance hitting the lotto than having a best seller. :)
