I’m in love with the Creepshow soundtrack

Okay, so I’ve been noodling away at this screenplay, and it’s a horror movie. Now, there are times when I have to write in complete silence, but holy cow do some tunes saddle up right nice to screenplay writing. For this project, I thought listening to John Carpenter scores would be the sure thing. However, I was wrong.

This flow has been achieved in no small part to John Harrison’s excellent work on the Creepshow score.

What can you finish in one week? One novella and one screenplay? It’s not as bad as it sounds . . .

The novella is super close to completion. I started the manuscript, last year, and I’ve been coming back to it off and on for the last several months when I could get a break from Rooster, et al.

A new collection of short stories

Proofing the half-dozen-and-change manuscripts for Rooster Republic’s 2018 releases

Creating a whole load of key art for book covers

But the thing that has begun to eat my every waking hour is a feature film that will shoot over a handful of days later this year. The project is a horror film, and though I don’t want to get into too much detail this early on, I can at least give you a hint as to what it may be about:
