Girl porn. 'Nuf said.

Haven't been writing much lately.  Not as much as I should have.  Not on this book, anyway.

I got a dozen chapters written in a potential sequel this week.  Really cool stuff.  Action, double-crosses, revenge, big robots, and in the end an entire building gets melted to slag!  I love it!  Though, in the timeline it would run parallel to book 3.  Therefore, of course, that doesn't put food on the table -- at least not for a long while.

Also, a gal and I are hammering out a ghost writing deal for a Christian romance novel.  Okay, not really my forte, but the deal is that she takes care the high-level plot and I do the grunt work, filling in the middle.  I probably won't get title billing, but you guys who follow this blog will be in-the-know.

Insider goodies:  Love it!

Normally, I'm not a fan of romance as a genre.  Okay, I'll just be blunt and say it:  Romance is pretty much "girl porn".  The only difference between that, and Playboy, is that "there are no pictures".  So what?  So even though the content is 10x as hardcore, the one is considered dirty... just because it is visual?  I know I visualize every story I read, so... does that distinction even make sense, anyway!??

But anyway, that's why I like the plot behind this deal so much.  The story is neat idea that starts out like a Nicholas Sparks plotline, but then pulls a fast-one and shakes things up, leading the reader to question event the very definition of "romance".

I think there are a lot of people addicted to this genre that need to hear this story!

Plus there are cool classic cars in it.  So what's not to love?

I'll keep you posted.  I promise.

And I'll try to focus on the task at hand more.  I (sort of) promise. ;)
