Chateau Gilmour & Dark Discoveries

Been a long while since I made any updates here. Believe me, it wasn’t for lack of trying. In addition to the day job, the freelance work, and the writing in 2016, I’ve been going through a bitter and contested divorce and custody battle. Not the sort of divorce where I need anyone’s sympathy, but the kind where congratulations are in order. It’s been a long time coming. Needless to say, it’s been complicated and has eaten up a ton of my time. I’m seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, though.

I’m now firmly entrenched in the brand new Central Vermont Chateau Gilmour, free of the offending former spouse. It’s an eighty-six year old Victorian duplex (I’ve got one side of the building), and the location is surprisingly quiet for being right in a city of close to sixty thousand people. But I’m at the end of a dead-end street, with a steep tree-covered hill at the dead end, and a babbling brook behind my back yard. Walking distance from the public library, but far enough from Main Street that I don’t hear any of the noise from the occasional New England summer festival or the thumping bassline from some wannabe gangbanger with the lowrider pickup truck with undercarriage neon lights and no muffler.

New Books and New Looks

So Endgame is out now. The book is a strange hybrid of a novella, a guidebook, and a short story. It’s a comprehensive look at the 18 books out so far in Jeremy Robinson’s Jack Sigler/Chess Team thriller series, for which I’ve co-authored a few books. This one, for the foreseeable future, will be my last.

Written as if you were taking a peek into Deep
Bcannibal-by-jeremy-robinson-biglue’s personal files, the book is filled with character bios, book summaries, and art. It also has a nice little framing-sequence short story around it, that tells you what happened to Deep Blue after the end of Cannibal (Book 7), which was also recently released.

Here’s the description for Endgame.

2014 In Review

Yep. My first and probably only blog post in 2014. Obviously I plan to do better in 2015.

So where have I been? I started the year off with severe hallucination-giving flu. At the time, I was writing the fifth and final installment of ‘Season 1’ of Jeremy Bishop’s REFUGE series, which we released first as a serial, in five parts, and later as a collected novel. My part, BONFIRES BURNING BRIGHT, was full of hallucinatory madness and crazy action. I should have blogged at the time to announce it but…yeah. Sick. Hoping there will be a ‘Season 2.’ You can help by buying the collected novel or the individual parts, and by spreading the word about it.

“Your Mother’s a Tracer!” Chess Team, Co-Authors, and the Wonderful World of Working with Jeremy Robinson

I add depth and shading to give the image more definition. Only then does the drawing truly take shape.

If you’re not familiar with the quote in the title, it’s from the Kevin Smith film, “Chasing Amy”, in which a comic book inker, tired of his fellow comic-book penciller getting all the love, finally snaps when an obnoxious fan tells him he’s only “a tracer.”

As a co-author with Jeremy Robinson on his excellent Jack Sigler/Chess Team series, I might feel the same way, *except* that the fans have been overwhelmingly fantastic. Out of the very few negative comments and feedback we received for our collaboration on 2012’s RAGNAROK, only one person pointed an accusing finger at me. And on the other side of that coin, the book became a bestseller on Amazon. Apparently loads of people loved the book. So ultimately, even though the co-author gets less of the accolades, I certainly don’t feel like Banky in “Chasing Amy”. I might be a tracer, but I take my work seriously.
