Yes, it’s been a while since I last posted. No, I don’t have an excuse for this lapse. So what do I have? Only the recommendation for one of the greatest writers of our time. David Wong (aka Jason Pargin), the author of John Dies at the End, is brilliant. I am reading John Dies right now, and can’t wait to start on Spiders. I know genius when I see it: William S. Burroughs, Franz Kafka, Howard Philips Lovecraft, and Charles Bukowski all qualify. I’d put Wong (Pargin) in this category, no hesitation. Go get his book NOW!
That said, I almost done with the first rewrite of The Gnostic: Book One, and my test readers are loving it. I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this, but my test readers are some ruthless motherfuckers. I do not use that word lightly; you should read their reviews of the rough draft! God willing they won’t see the light of day ever again. They were brutal, and almost hurt my feelings. The next rewrite won’t be nearly as involved, and shouldn’t take nearly as long.
