Solidly Off The Internet

As I’m now a creator, more of my time is spent developing projects and executing them. This takes time and attention away from the more immediate work which forms part of the blog content. So I’m not interacting as before, due to a desire to write better books.

Project Laughing Boy is waiting for an it and cover then will be out before the end of the year. Ideal for Christmas.

Project Asra is 20 pages longhand and some behind the scenes workshopping so it’s consistent, in the background and also plausible.

Project Crash in longhand is waiting for a second draft. Another research and some fleshing out but notes for second book are growing.

If you don’t know, my book Until She Sings is out now in paperback and ebook.

Update

I’ve finished Project Crash in longhand and have sent the next book to my editor. So I’m now venturing back into the wild man and asra stories with a new book.

It’s a matter of time, but more work is coming.

My book Until She Sings is out now.

God shaped holes

Was it removed like an inflamed

Appendix?

Do you finger the scar and realise you’ve been misled

Into the slate desert where the candles

Never stay alight

And you’ve tried to jam in different

Things

Sex, drugs, art, politics,

But in the end

You look at those who kept theirs

Or had one transplanted from a willing donor

And wonder how you’ll ever get through the book you started

Cari Mora by Thomas Harris

Harris is the author of the Hannibal Lecter books, most famous for Silence of the lambs and Red Dragon. Those two books are masterpieces, plotted and written with a chill intelligence and mastery of story structure which warrants study.

I’m not as much a fan of Hannibal and Hannibal Rising because they suffer from the point where an author falls too in love with a character to serve the story.

This is his latest book and although technically competent, it feels rote and lacks the gothic, cerebral intensity of earlier work. It’s more of a love letter to Florida and although I admired it, somehow I couldn’t commit to it.

The story itself offers no surprises and the antagonist Hans is a Lecter-lite who does awful things but manages to be boring and even a liquid cremation device doesn’t move me to feeling fascination or disgust then there are issues with the book.

Diverting but nothing startling. Truly, the lambs have stopped screaming.

Lights In The Sky

Before they launch,

We would

Find one another

In the dark

Suspended in amber

Amidst a throng of witnesses

As they whispered

Hopes

Fears

There are lights in the sky

But in the end

If it were too dark to read

I would just want to look

At you

For the

First

Last

Time

The look in my eyes

Time enough

A kiss

To say one another’s names

Then they are

Here

White Ribbons

It’s almost tension

After a fashion,

But, it makes me crumble a little

Just to walk into the room

And see you,

Testing me and

how strong you make me

Wishing this moment would

Last forever

And tomorrow, we will return

To ourselves

But tonight

My hands

My mouth are glacial warm whispers

And here, where I spill white ribbons,

Fighting back tears sometimes,

You inspire a

Divine animal idiocy

The way I look at you,

If it almost seems violent

No, it is worship,

Bare skin conversations

With your eyes and your sighs

Rising like smoke in the air,

It breaks me long before

It would ever break you.

My book Until She Sings is out now.
