Western Story

Today I worked on a new Western story. Right now, I am still in the thinking it through stage. My philosophy for story ideas is that they should percolate like a tea kettle until the are ready to burst at the seams. So, I am still running it through a story creation program.

I am quite pleased so far. I think the story will have well thought out characters, plenty of action, and a good theme.

Prologue Books

While other book geeks may have beat me to it, I just discovered a gold mine on Kindle: Prologue Books. I am in hardboiled heaven. What pleases me the most, is that they have almost all of the Peter Rabe novels... and many more. So, I could not help myself and I scooped up a few. I am looking forward to reading these and you will see reviews in the future.

A New Western Story

Since I have a little lag time between Huey stories, I think I will start writing a western that has been ruminating for a while. It won't be a Cain story.

Huey Dusk now on Twitter

I guess it is about time he gets with the program. So, Huey Dusk is now on Twitter. Twitter is something I will need to familiarize myself with... I set up another account years ago, but never followed up on it. My family set this one up and I thank them dearly for it. They will be tweeting all my blog posts from Huey Dusk's Lounge and Clown Room. Progress I say.

The Third Huey Story

I am happy to say that I finished the first draft of the third Huey Dusk story and my wife  and I are making the first editing pass at it.

As with The Case Of Sad Luck Dame, it will be different to show the different circumstances he is in.

To me this story will have the most circus flavor to it and it will be the most absurd. I will also showcase new characters and usher in some ones that will be perminent fixtures. In regard to the clowns and the circus element, I want it to have a last hurrah feeling. In future stories involving this universe, we are moving into a much different social climate.
