Double Feature

Someone asked me what book am I reading right now? I didn't have the nerve to admit I'm reading two: The Pigman and The Silver Eggheads.

Paris Movie

Is it true that Jean Gabin has come out of a long retirement to star in the film version of The Air Over Paris?

Is it true that Simon and Schuster have decided to promote The Air Over Paris with these premium souvenirs?

Here's the cover for the new Good Deed Rain novel, THE AIR OVER PARIS. A futuristic novel set in Los Angeles in 2042 where everything is French and our hero Mel Blanc works with semi-sentient speedbumps from Mars. It's a fun one! Illustrated throughout by a leftbank artist. Publication date is Valentines Day, you can order from me or Amazon. Merci!

White Russia

Annabelle Barrett's illustration from I CAN ONLY IMAGINE for the novel White Russia.


Going to share a couple of Annabelle Barrett's illustrations from I CAN ONLY IMAGINE. There are 5 novels in this collection and she made title page pictures for each section. I forgot there's a bagel shop featured in here. There's one in my newest novel too! I like to think there's a sort of studio where all these stories are being filmed and the same sets reappear and the plots and characters move in and out like dreams.

Imaginary books

From the book Violet of the Silent Movies (2020)


I noticed that this book I Can Only Imagine is selling for $20 on amazon! Yikes! I'll soon make a cheapo kindle version of it for you. Unless you live in a town with a thriving blackmarket, it shouldn't be that hard to find. Amazing cover by Annabelle Barrett.

9-year-old Elephant

Rediscovered this 9-year-old scrap of paper where I wrote my first note for the novel that became ROOSEVELT. A lot of ideas arrive while I’m at work and I gotta write em down quick!
