NEWS FLASH! Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin are now exclusively in charge of all publicity for “Son of Ravage,” available on Amazon and Kindle. This is great news and I am feeling very good about my chances of finally getting some serious recognition. Wait? What’s that? Never mind.
Shout out to Sonja for letting me know I need to be a bit clearer regarding the contact form. Click contact (above the slide show) and this will bring up the comment form. Leave your name and email to enter the contest for a free signed copy of “Son of Ravage.” The contest will run through April 18thso tell your friends, enemies and whoever else might be inclined to listen. Just for the record, Sonja and her husband Mark now have a 50/50 chance of scoring an autographed copy of the book. So far, I like their odds.
Tickled pink to announce that next week we will be having our first special guest to jplinde.com, artist and author Tadd Galusha. I first met this extremely talented artist on the set of “Frank Stone,” directed by our mutual friend and hopefully future virtual guest, Brett Vail. Tadd was doing storyboards and a friendship developed that I’m happy to say has lasted several years. This week, Tadd’s first book, “Cretaceous” was released by Oni Press and is available online and at your favorite bookstores.
The pitch is as follows: When a Tyrannosaurus Rex is separated from its family unit, it embarks on a harrowing journey to reunite with them before the raw, real dangers of the Cretaceous Era separate them for good. This heart-wrenching story takes to the skies and dives into the sea—and explores everywhere in between.
I know. Pretty great, right?
Again, the Tadd blog will drop on March 25.
This week’s startling confession: The picture of the North Hollywood Starbucks is not really from North Hollywood. Gasp! It’s actually the Toluca Lake location which is next to Bob’s Notorious B.I.G. Boy. The photo is poor quality, several years old and cracks me up every single time I see it. Also for the record, I did not see a desktop in Toluca Lake. The actual sighting of the 27-inch desktop was in the Manhattan Beach Starbucks. They do everything big in Manhattan Beach.
I have come to the painful conclusion that my blogs resemble the incoherent ramblings of Larry King in his old column on USA Today.
“Gun violence is a nationwide epidemic and speaking of epidemics, “The Cannonball Run 2” will have you clutching your sides with lethal doses of hilarious comedic hijinks. We lost Moshe Dayan today. Truly, one of the great ones.”
Okay, thanks for stopping by. As usual, if you have any ideas, questions or want to significantly cut Mark or Sonja’s chance of winning a free autographed copy of my book, “Son of Ravage,” leave a comment.
In two weeks, I will be recounting my journey of self-discovery during the treacherous three-month backpacking trip around the Glendoveer Golf Course hiking trail in Northeast Portland, Oregon. My treacherous stop for Onion Rings at The Ringside will have you gasping for breath.
A very important announcement concerning SON OF RAVAGE is coming soon! Stay tuned.
