Another awesome week of writing ahead of me. First off, I want to thank the IWC (Indiana Writers Consortium) http://indianawritersconsortium.org for a great meet and greet with fellow Indiana authors in Hammond, Indiana yesterday. My brother, Mark Cusco Ailes, and I learned about several writing opportunities for our careers moving forward into the rest of 2014 and beyond.
We have a upcoming book signing in Chesterton, Indiana at Thomas Centennial Park along Broadway in downtown area. This is on July 26th a Saturday and is from 10-2. If you are in the area, stop by and purchase one of my or Mark's novels.
I started working on the short story "Lake Shore Dive" about a mega sinkhole that opens up in Chicago destroying landmarks around Lake Shore Drive. I'm having fun writing that one. All the first drafts will be finished for "The Second Journey Into the Unknown" some time in August. The book will be available some time in October just in time for all of our November book signing appearances. I will then have the short story "Claws" to write. The second Karena story will make its appearance in a 2015 book project.
If you haven't purchased the first "Journey Into the Unknown", you can purchase it on Amazon.com http://amzn.com/1490924302 or the Amazon UK http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1490924302
I'm only a few weeks away from meeting Robert Englund, Traci Lords, and Lance Henriksen at the Flashback Weekend in Chicago. I had fun recently meeting Doug Bradley (Pinhead of Hellraiser) a couple weeks back. My brother still hasn't gotten over meeting Tara Reid.
I saw Riffrax presentation of Sharknado last Thursday. I laughed my ass off. Very funny stuff and it wasn't even on TBS. They are doing the 1998 Godzilla with Matthew Broderick in August. I will be attending that one. That movie deserves to be made fun of.
I will keep everybody updated on my future book appearances. I have a huge day of writing ahead of me tomorrow. Maybe I'll finish "Lake Shore Dive". I believe that would make an excellent SYFY channel movie. Asylum contact me now for a script.
Until next time
