I have an electrical contractor as a friend and customer. He does specialized work in both our Bay Area and down in Los Angeles. He works for movie production companies in both areas, including the one based in Oakland. He liked my novel THE PROTECTORS, and actually tried on my behalf to get some interest with his contacts. Without a screenplay which I found is very expensive to have done from a novel, we received some positive feedback, but that was about it. I sent him the PDF copy of my screenplay, HARDCASE. He likes it a lot, and is going to shop it around for me with his contacts in the industry. It doesn’t mean much yet, but like he told me yesterday, he’ll have something in the proper form to show.
It reminded me of how little it takes to get the creative juices flowing. I started a new novel last night with an idea I had about copycat serial killings in San Francisco, and a rather odd couple of unique characters who go after the killers. I’m also working on the outline conversion of my DEMON novel into screenplay form. Since there’s not much happening in sales figures, I have to take inspiration anywhere I can get it. :)
