In Case You Were Wondering…

I use Scrivener to write fiction, and it has all sorts of bells and whistles to keep track of notes and ideas and inspiration. A while back I put together “character sheets” (for lack of a better term) for the main characters in the Finder Team mystery series.

So if you’ve ever wondered which actors (or directors!) I’d “cast” in the movie version of Finders, Inc. and Lost & Finders, well, wonder no more:

At least, these faces are what I have in mind while I’m typing away. Thanks for indulging me!

So yeah, Jorge Garcia and Spike Lee, let’s talk, okay?


My Current Reading List is a Plethora of Goodness (or Something)

Okay, I’ll try to refrain from posting random pictures of apps on my phone, but I’m in this weird, awesome situation now where I’m reading pretty much four books at the same time:

Currently Reading

Two fiction, and both of them set in the past  (1968 and 1990) and two non-fiction, one a how-to and the other sort of a self-help, inspirational sort of book. All of them very different, except for the fact that the two novels are in a series, so I’m sure I’ll be reading many more books by those authors.

I love how the Kindle apps on my phone and my actual Kindle are able to keep up with all my jumping around, too. Everything stays synced!

I realize I’d make better time reading one book first, all the way through, but my brain has been bouncing around between all four for some reason. It’s one of those nice problems to have, I guess.

Okay, back to work now! I’ve a got a screenplay whose characters are waiting for me to tell ’em what to do. Happy reading!

Still not as wordy as George R.R Martin…

I grabbed this image of the Kindle app on my phone the other day:

So the number of dots under a book signifies the length of the book. The dots turn blue as you make progress through the book.

I thought that my trilogy of all three of my Contagious Magic books would stack up against one of George R.R. Martin’s huge “Song of Ice and Fire” books, but I still fell short.

But hey, it was really cool seeing my books right there next to the books of a best-seller like GRRM. Hope readers enjoy it as much as his stuff (and hey, I don’t kill off all my character like he does, so there!).

And hey, my trilogy clocks in at 692 pages, and weighs a solid 2.5 pounds. The trade paperback version, that is — the ebook version weighs not a thing! 🙂

Have an awesome day!
