So, here’s something that may surprise you.
I use tarot card readers. I have two. Madison, here in LA, I use for plot development. I tell her about the character, and I ask their future. It’s fun, and sometimes I even follow the card’s advice. (she’s uncanny to the point where I’ve felt the bottom of my guts drop out of me…she’s worth every penny, and she does readings by phone… Madisoncharap@gmail.com)
For career stuff, and if I need a reading NOW, I use Laura at Purple Moon.
OK so, the point…
Perdition isn’t for pussies.
You know. Perdition isn’t for pussies. It’s really dark. It’s written without rules. And it’s written without rules because Fiona doesn’t have any. It’s about what happens to a soul without grounding, so I ripped the grounding out of the story. Which is usually something I’d say is a BAD IDEA and a little too conceptual to hook the “average reader.”
I mean, I’ve not just disregarded, but flouted every single dramatic rule I tripped over as I wrote it.
USE is available
I wrote this last night, before Amazon blocked the book from sale.
But it’s up now. We’re gold. I don’t think they’ll take it down. I know lots of you are concerned about that. Though I love a buying frenzy as much as the next author it’s probably not necessary, though I hear if you change something the review process starts again and the book can get stuck again. I don’t know. Hope springs eternal.
What’s the Word, Thunderbird?
Typically, I’d write this into a Facebook post, but thanks to Christy Wilson’s fabulous web management, I’m more inclined to just blog this shit.
So, what IS the word?
I’m still getting over 2013, and here’s 2014, all over my lap. Is it Friday night already? In JUNE? And I still haven’t fully coped emotionally with what the Songs of Submission meant to me as an artist. I’m all clear on what it’s done for my family, and for my business, and how I spend my days. But as an artist, I’m still growing.
So much positivity…
A couple of more delicious book reviews, this time from The Lightning Room.
We get glimpses of Jonathan without his ironclad control and Monica in such a state of desperation that she’s pushed to very edge of morality. We get to see them stripped of what decency remained between them until all that is left is love, need and sex.
