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.

  • He tackles big issues but can?t resist adding jokes, once turning Hamlet into a story about rubber ducks. As The Other Side of Hope hits cinemas, the Finnish director talks about lazy actors, parking tickets ? and his Holby City addictionTwice a year, Aki Kaurismäki climbs into his battered blue Volvo and drives from his home in a Portuguese village all the way to Helsinki. ?When I was young, with my Cadillac and lousy roads, it took three days,? says the 60-year-old Finnish director. ?Now, with good roads, at my age it takes five.? A shrug. What does he play on the journey? ?Otis Redding. Dylan. Finnish tango. I haven?t bought new music in 20 years.? Helsinki is the setting for most of his humane and poker-faced comedies, including The Man Without a Past, which won the Grand Prix at Cannes in 2002, and his latest gem, The Other Side of Hope. The story of a stoical restaurateur who takes a Syrian asylum-seeker under his wing, it won him the best director prize in Berlin earlier this year. Did he enjoy the festival? ?Three days in a room.

  • Probably not coming to a cinema near you: rabbits with chainsaws, plus-size cops and the remains of Nicolas Cage?s career Most people think of the Cannes film festival as a home for daring arthouse cinema and A-list actors. But, deep in the bowels of the Palais des Festivals, there is another Cannes that no one talks about, where distributors desperately try to hawk awful-sounding movies that may not actually exist, with awful-looking posters full of has-beens and never-weres. Here?s the pick of the worst films at the festival this year. Pray you never have to sit through any of these ? Continue reading...
  • post Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins: ?People really thought that only men loved action movies? - 26 May
  • As the first female director of a Marvel or DC film, Jenkins has gently reinterpreted the superhero genre, bringing love and compassion to the world of fights and fantasyAt a sunbaked studio lot in LA?s Culver City, a table laden with red and blue cake pops styled with miniature fondant headbands is drawing smiles: superheroes, in small and edible form. They are tiny and temporary (gone in a gulp), which is especially pleasing when you accept them for what they are ? homage to something huge and potentially lasting.The new Wonder Woman movie, with its images of sword-wielding Gal Gadot now all over billboards, buses and social media feeds, is aiming to do for superhero movies what the excellent and feminist Mad Max: Fury Road did for action blockbusters. It?s progressive yet crowdpleasing, faithful to the tenets of the genre yet wise to its own absurdities. In short, it?s a game-raiser for reasons beyond the fact that it is also the first ever Marvel or DC movie to be directed by a woman. She is 45-year-old Patty Jenkins, a soft-hearted hard-ass who has waited nearly 15 years for this moment. Jenkins is also only the second female director to command a budget of more than $100m.

  • post I Am Not a Witch director Rungano Nyoni: ?The chief Whatsapped his people to find our star? - 25 May
  • The Welsh-Zambian director?s debut feature is premiering at Cannes: an everyday story of choosing between life in a travelling witch camp or being transformed into a goatAt the heart of I Am Not a Witch, a Zambian-set highlight of this year?s Cannes Festival, is an eminently relatable dilemma: should you remain living as witch in a travelling camp for tourists? Or liberate yourself, and thus risk being magically transformed into a goat as punishment? Who hasn?t wrestled with that one at some point or another? ?That?s a choice I feel like I, as a woman, make all the time,? says Rungano Nyoni, the film?s Zambian-born, Cardiff-raised director. She laughs. ?Shall I become a goat? Or shall I become a woman and live with all the injustices and difficulties that come with it??In Nyoni?s conversation, as in the society she depicts on film, metaphor and literal truth can sometimes become entwined. It is one of the qualities that makes her debut feature, a satire about a nine-year-old girl who is accused of witchcraft, so beguiling. The selection of I Am Not a Witch for the festival?s directors fortnight is a particular achievement for a first-time feature director, since this section is a breeding ground for future auteurs. It is the afternoon before she is due to fly out to France, though, and Nyoni says she is still struggling to relax into her success: ?I?m more nervous than anything ? it?s waiting to see it in front of an audience. That either reassures you or makes you even more nervous, so I think that?s when I?ll know.? Continue reading...

  • post In the Fade review ? ninja heroine Diane Kruger marooned in feeble revenge drama - 26 May
  • Fatih Akin?s drama about a woman whose husband is killed in a terrorist bomb attack is an uncompelling and evasive treatment of a very contemporary subjectFatih Akin?s mediocre revenge drama In the Fade is the TV movie of the week: feebly uncontentious and un-contemporary. It is about a white German woman whose Turkish husband is killed, along with their young son, by a terrorist bomb-blast. When the bullshit criminal justice system fails to convict the swaggeringly unrepentant culprits, this woman completes the half-finished samurai tattoo she has on her side, and resolves to take matters into her own hands; her late husband?s extended family and community having apparently fallen silent on the subject of legal or illegal means of redress. They are written out of the story, leaving the field clear for the blonde avenger. Continue reading...
  • post L'Amant Double review ? camp-classic status beckons for François Ozon's softcore silliness - 25 May
  • The director of Jeune et Jolie returns with another slice of erotica-lite, in this tale of an ex-model in therapy who ends up with two lovers ? who are twinsThe softcore silliness and lite-erotic stylings of François Ozon?s horribly middleweight psycho-suspense thriller may yet give it camp classic status, like a super-porny version of Roald Dahl?s Tales of the Unexpected. There?s admittedly a cheeky wit to the opening visual gag, which converts a gynaecological image into a crying eye. And it has what future cultural historians may come to think of as the best female strap-on scene since Myra Breckinridge. Who knows? Continue reading...
