OCLT, crazed writer, dark forces, ellie, command & conquer

my Sunday feeling

This was quite a productive weekend. Friday night I taught the kids fighting class, and also did a tutoring session with one of the advanced brown belts who's going for promotion to first-degree black belt next month. Saturday morning, I helped teach the kids' noon class and took the 1pm class. The former I thought was particularly important to do, as the snow Thursday and Friday depressed attendance of the kids color-belt class, so I expected a lot of kids to take it Saturday to make up for missing one or both of those days.

In that, I was correct. The class often gets 20-25 kids -- yesterday, we had 34. Really glad I was there to assist.

After I got home, Wrenn and I went shopping for some stuff she needs for her Etsy store (and hey, you should check it out and buy things from it!) and some other things as well, and then I came home, napped, and started working. Did more of that today.

Goals for this weekend included the following:
---incorporate my collaborator's feedback into the thriller manuscript
---do some revisions on the sooper seekrit project
---write a guest blog entry about my story in The Best of Bad-Ass Faeries that will go live a week from tomorrow
---sign and return several contracts -- one for a project I'm not ready to talk about yet, the other for my appearances at (Re)Generation Who 3 and Dragon Con 2017
---work on A Furnace Sealed
---look over the page proofs for "Live and On the Scene," my story in Nights of the Living Dead
---start editing Star Trek: Prometheus Book 3

I only did about 750 words on A Furnace Sealed, and didn't actually get started on Prometheus, but I'm pleased to say that I got everything else done, as well as everything I talked about in the first three paragraphs and also saw John Wick, Suicide Squad (both on home video), and John Wick Chapter 2 (in the theatre).

So I'm feeling pretty good about my weekend, all told.

progress.....

As I said in the previous entry, I only did about 750 words of A Furnace Sealed this weekend, but I also read over what I'd already written and the outline for the rest of it, and the book's really in my head now, which is good.

I'm really happy with how the book is progressing. Here's an excerpt:
Downstairs was Ahondjon's magick shop. The man himself wasn't in—his nephew Medawe was, and he was talking on the cordless phone.

He waved at me as I came down the metal stairs. The place was dank, lit only by crummy fluorescent lights, since there weren't any windows.

"Nah, he ain't here," Medawe was saying. Unlike his uncle, he was born in the Bronx, so he didn't have Ahondjon's thick west African accent. "It's Sunday morning, he's in church. … Nah, I ain't telling you what church. … What, you telling me you found Jesus now? Bullshit. Just gimme the message, I'll let him know when he gets back. … I don't know when, I ain't found no Jesus, neither. 'Sides, you know how he likes talking to folks. Could be hours. … Yeah, well, fuck you too."

Shaking his head, Medawe pressed the END button on the phone.

"Another satisfied customer?"

Medawe snorted. "Yeah, somethin' like that. What'cha need, Gold?"

"I need to talk to Ahondjon. He really in church?"

"Hell, no. Only time his ass goes into a church is to deliver their holy water."

I blinked. "Wait, churches buy holy water from him?"

"They do if they want the shit that works."

"Well, I hope his holy water smells better than his talisman to stop a unicorn."

Medawe frowned. "What, it didn't work?"

I smiled. "It worked fine. When I activated it, it smelled like a moose fucking a dead octopus."

"Yeah, well, you want shit that works, it's gonna stink."

"Still, I've had some complaints. The first being from my hooter." I pointed to my oversized schnozz.

Medawe chuckled. "Look, I'll pass it on, but you know my uncle."

"I do indeed." I also noticed that Medawe hadn't actually answered my question about when Ahondjon would be back, which led me to think he either didn't know or couldn't tell me.

Whatever, I had a binding spell to stop. "Hey, I wanna double check, what would the components be if you wanted to cast a binding spell on a loa?"

That got me another snort from Medawe. "A thing'a lipstick so you can kiss your ass goodbye. Who'd be stupid enough to do that?"

"Woman over in Seton Falls Park, apparently."

Shaking his head, Medawe said, "Well, there's lotsa binding spells, but if you want to bind a loa, you're gonna need an Obsidian candle, thick rope, a red ribbon, and sandalwood."

I winced. Except for the candle, that was stuff you could get over the counter anyplace. Hell, you could probably get all that at Target. "Does it have to be an Obsidian candle, or can any black candle do it?"

"Depends."

"On what?"

"If you want the binding to work or not."

Ask a stupid question... "Yeah, okay, thanks, Medawe. And tell your uncle—"

"Moose fuckin' a dead octopus, you got it."

I grinned. "Thanks."

the sooper-seekrit project revealed: Orphan Black: Classified Clone Report!

Since it's up for preorder, I've finally been given the okay to say what the sooper-seekrit project I've been working on since last summer is: Orphan Black: Classified Clone Report--The Secret Files of Dr. Delphine Cormier. Here's the cover:



And here's the promo copy:
From the secret files of Dr. Delphine Cormier, comes this ultimate guide to all of the characters, conspiracies, and shadowy organizations in the smart, innovative BBC America television thriller Orphan Black.

Designed to resemble the classified files and notes of Dr. Delphine Cormier, this in-world compendium chronicles the inner workings of the mysterious people and organizations at the heart of the acclaimed hit television series Orphan Black. A detailed and creative look at the thrilling international hit series, Orphan Black Classified Clone Report includes detailed dossiers of Sarah Manning, Felix Dawkins, and all of the show’s beloved characters; examines every twist and turn from season one to the present; provides exclusive information on the Dyad Institute, the Neolution clone program, and the notorious Proletheans; and features observations of the different clones from their monitors, classified intelligence, breakthroughs in Cosima’s research, and private journal entries chronicling Delphine’s experience with the clone club and her own complicated love for Cosima.

Packed with exclusive concept art, photos, and intriguing removable inserts and ephemera, Orphan Black Classified Clone Report is an immersive reading experience and essential companion for fans of Orphan Black.

The book will be out in August from Insight Editions, while season five is still on the air (which, it was just announced last week, will debut on the 10th of June). You can preorder it from Amazon or Barnes & Noble.

I am a huuuuuuuuuuuuuge fan of OB, so working on this project -- my thirtieth different licensed property, as it happens -- has been an absolute thrill.
