A Wave in April
Greetings from Vienna. I just had a mildly schizophrenic March re-reading FROM THE TEETH OF ANGELS
, a novel I wrote over fifteen years ago (I seldom re-read my stuff because it makes me tsk-tsk too much about all the youthful writing mistakes). At the same time, I was slowly snow plowing along writing a new book which is hopefully about half done. Carroll past and future pulling in distinctly different directions. I re-read ANGELS because as some of you already know, it is now available as a KINDLE download at Amazon.com
for the very nice price of 99 cents in the US, $2.99 internationally. Even if you don’t have a KINDLE machine, Amazon will supply you with a free KINDLE reader application for your iPhone/iPad, PC, or even one for Blackberry users. Just go to the Amazon page that offers ANGELS as a KINDLE book and all necessary links are there
In other news, ABC television in the US has optioned THE GHOST IN LOVE. They plan on making it into either a television series or feature film which would be deliciously delightful either way. All this is in the early stages and contracts are still being ironed out. But the folks at ABC are extremely encouraging about the project, so let’s cross our fingers that German, Ben, and Pilot’s story will show up on some kind of small or large screen in the future.
2 new short stories will be appearing in the Spring issue of CONJUNCTIONS magazine due out in May, and Neil Gaiman’s terrific looking anthology entitled STORIES. An intriguing mix of writers there—Chuck Palahniuk, Jodi Picoult, Roddy Doyle, Michael Swanwick and many others are in the book. I urge you to be on the lookout when it’s published by William Morrow in June.
I hope you are all well and thriving. The weather in Vienna as I write this is cold and clear. Sweater weather still but with thoughts of t-shirts and real Spring just around the corner.
Keep moving, keep dreaming,
