Welcome back to the blog, my rabid readers. I have been away too long. Part of my New Years resolution is to write in Yoakum’s Ramblings more. Maybe once a week if I can discipline myself enough.
What has been going on…
First off, Redcap may be made into an indie film sometime in 2018. I have been talking to My Little Rascal Productions. They are looking for stories to turn into low budget indie films. It won’t be chock full of special effects, but the story telling element is what is more important. After all, Star Wars may have had 70s effects and hair styles and puppets, but it was the story telling that got a generation of kids into it. They are filming something else right now, but my book should be next. After the contracts are signed and all that jazz. I will be keeping you posted on that for sure.
What else? The Targothian: Book V is being written and will be published in late April/early May.
After that, I am working on Baba Yaga, a sequel of sorts to Redcap. Baba was a side character in Redcap and now she will be getting her own book.
I am planning on getting Photoshop or similar software to start designing my own book covers. Once that is underway, I will be making new covers for my already done books and hopefully I can do the books justice with a new cover. I can’t afford to pay someone $200 plus dollars to do them so I will be spending that money on the software and be able to do all the covers I want. Maybe I’ll eventually design covers for others if they want. Ok, that is all for the writing news. Now for the rambling.
I love my cell phone, and true, I’ll text someone before I call them. It isn’t that I don’t want to talk to my friends, but I’ve never been a fan of talking on the phone. I’d rather talk to someone in person. That is why I like texting. Pass the info and meet somewhere for drinks and karaoke. That being said, PUT YOUR FUCKING PHONES AWAY AT THE THEATER! You can’t go 2 hours without communicating with your fantastic friends? Seriously? You just have to Twitter during the movie? Knock that shit off! You paid good money for that movie. Pay attention to it, dingus! Damn chuckleheads can’t stay off of Facebook, and for what? So they can be political and think they’re making a difference in the world by sharing political posts?
I DON’T GIVE TWO SHITS ON THREE SHINGLES WHAT YOUR POLITICAL VIEWS ARE!
Partisan politics have ruined this country for decades. That is how they keep us under control. Divide and conquer. The Left slams the Right and demonizes them, and vice versa. Don’t give in, people. Vote for the person, not the party.
OK, I’m done for now. Hope to see you again here next week. And, don't worry, I will ramble about more things besides politics and cell phones. Plenty of shit out there pisses me off.
