Coming Soon (from me)
« on: April 11, 2017, 11:50:07 AM »
The Noble Coachman

On a day of beauty and celebration, the life of one young Viscount Trevor Caldwell is irrevocably set off course when a heinous tragedy besets upon his family. Questioning his role; self-imposed guilt is heaped upon him, Trevor elects to abandon his home and station. Now living in London, under a different name and occupation, he embarks on a path of worlds beyond the life he once knew, entrenched in mystery, intrigue, and a new chance for love.
However, as he rides under the shroud of anonymity, he soon discovers that all roads lead back to that one  horrid day. Led by clues, haunted by his memories, he determines to seek retribution.  With all he holds dear, once again under threat he calls on himself and his allies, both living and departed, as he engineers a new path for redemption.

But is this quest for revenge worth his nobility? His word? His honor ?

You knew my real name is Gene, didn't you?
In only two generations on my maternal side, there are 4 Gene females.  I was named after my mother's sister.  I had a great uncle who spelled his Jean.  Go figure.

Oh my.  Thank you.
I'm still waiting on my own copies. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. The characters just created their own selves.  Funny how that happens.

Yeah, sometimes a book gets away from you and you end up writing something you don't want. It takes a lot of courage to just delete the whole stuff and re-write it.

I usually just follow the characters and not start over.

This was strange writing this book.  I was about 3/4 of the way through when my sister was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. That set me back almost a year and a half. Finally, I pulled it up on my screen and began writing again. I came to the end seeing about 400 pages and totally overlooked I was in manuscript mode, writing in double spaced lines. Once I collasped into novel form, I was at 197 pages.
Too short. So I went back and expanded on areas I felt were too short but left them because I thought the book was running long.  Then, duh, I realized I had never set my margins and my paragraphs had no indent.  Geesh....  After sumbitting my first proof and cover, I was told my spine margin was too little, so I had to indent the gutter margins more - therein making the book longer. What a nightmare. I was looking to make it around 300 pages but it came in at nearly 400 pages. I think the only thing I did right were the font and size.

I think I read, proofed, and finessed it a dozen times. I remember originally I wanted to end it, so that I could write a second or third in a series, but ended up tying all the loose threads. I can go on to another series from where it left off, but my plans had been different.

  • As our countdown continues, ninth place in both the UK and US is taken by a strange and haunting romanceSee the rest of the UK countdownSee the US countdownMore on the best culture of 2017
    It all began with a bedsheet. Writer-director David Lowery has said he?d envisioned making a film featuring this rudimentary ghost costume long before he began working on his fourth feature. It?s also this image ? the mute, sheet-clad figure, with two holes for eyes ? which has remained lodged in our minds in the months since Lowery?s strange, supernatural love story was first released. And ultimately, this may be what saves A Ghost Story from the stain of Hollywood?s ongoing sexual harassment scandal. The sheet makes it sometimes possible to forget that Casey Affleck ? an actor who has settled two claims out of court ? is the man underneath. Affleck is there in the early scenes though, with Rooney Mara, his co-star from Lowery?s 2013 breakthrough film, Ain?t Them Bodies Saints. They play ?C? and ?M?, a young married couple with easy chemistry who argue sometimes (M wants to move house; C, a songwriter, wants to stay put with his piano), but mostly live in undramatic harmony. Then C dies in a car accident, dons the sheet and returns home, where he waits, becoming a witness to his wife?s grief.

  • Tonya Harding?s difficult life, filled with domestic violence and struggle, is played for laughs in an uneven biopic that never really scratches the surfaceLong before Frozen, those of us who were American girls in the mid-90s lived and breathed a different icebound battle of good and evil.

  • Prestige pictures lead the way, with The Post and Three Billboards also up there ? but with no Dee Rees, Kathryn Bigelow or Greta Gerwig, the director nominations look dubious? Full list of nomineesAt first glance, the major loser in this year?s Golden Globe nominations would appear to be Paul Thomas Anderson?s Phantom Thread, his superb daymare about a 1950s London fashion designer; it gets its mandatory best actor (drama) nod for Daniel Day-Lewis in his valedictory performance but nothing in the way of best film or best director. Nothing, furthermore, for Denis Villeneuve?s Blade Runner 2049, starring Ryan Gosling as a younger-generation replicant-hunter who winds up on the track of his predecessor, Harrison Ford. Nor is there anything for the red-hot topicality of Kathryn Bigelow?s Detroit ? and in fact the best director category has, depressingly, been turned into a boys? club; all the more dismaying considering that Sofia Coppola picked up the director?s prize in Cannes for her The Beguiled (not noticed here). And in the foreign film category, Robin Campillo?s excellent BPM (Beats Per Minute), his drama about the ACT UP campaign in Paris, has not been nominated.

  • post The Smurfette Principle: why can?t Hollywood accept gender equality? - 11 December
  • As Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and It show, the problematic trope of token girls in all-male gangs enduresIt has been a good year for women in cinema in many ways, with a high count of quality female-made and female-led movies, and the removal of an echelon of sexual predators from the industry. But by some metrics, there?s still a way to go. In particular, the Smurfette Principle. The phrase was coined back in 1991 by US writer Katha Pollitt, who bemoaned the number of films and TV programmes that featured a group with one lone female. Not just The Smurfs but also The Muppets, Winnie The Pooh, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and so forth. ?The message is clear,? she wrote, ?... boys are central, girls peripheral.?

However, the film looks set to face strong opposition from Steven Spielberg?s Pentagon Papers drama The Post and Martin McDonagh?s Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, at a Globes ceremony that will provide the entertainment industry with its first major opportunity to respond to the sexual abuse scandal plaguing Hollywood.Two months after the emergence of allegations against producer Harvey Weinstein that would prompt a further torrent of claims against men in the film industry, the nominations exhibited an already changed landscape in Hollywood. As expected none of the Weinstein-produced films eligible for inclusion received nominations, however there were multiple nominations for Ridley Scott?s All the Money in the World, which was forced to replace star Kevin Spacey at short notice, after he was accused of multiple counts of sexual assault and harassment.
