And that’s a wrap…

The basic 1st rough draft of the the first book of The Grimnoir Chronicles is DONE.

It is titled Hard Magic, and it clocked in at about 150,000 words.  I wrote the final scene last night.

Now I still need to clean it up. My rough drafts are a huge mess. I’m one of those super-fast writers who’s a terrible editor. I have friends that agonize over each scene, making sure that every last word is perfection, and when they’re done, they’re done, it is about perfect. Not me. I sit down, crank out 2,000 words, go, hmm… that’s cool,whatever, I”m excited to go write the next one! Yay!  Later I have to go back and see all the many horrible things that I did wrong, but that’s what word processors are for.  

While they write an absolutely beautiful 500 word piece, I cranked out 2,500 words of bad pulp, riddled with errors, cliches, bad grammar, nonsense, ramblings, and a 27 extra apostrophes and 15 extra commas.  And to think people who don’t like me read my blog posts and say, “You suck at writing on your blog! Look at all those mistakes. You must be a terrible novelist! and you’re stupid and fat, Go Obama! Wooo!”  Well, to those folks, keep in mind that I wrote this entire blog post in the time it  took you to cook your morning meth. I write fast.

I would never have made it as a writer in 1932. No delete key. No cut & paste. Though they did have Coke, and they had vanilla that I could have added myself… Well, maybe I could have. Me and Raymond Chandler would have totally hung out, talked shop about accounting, and then he’d probably get totally wasted on bootleg hooch and I’d have to drive him home.

Anyways, I still need to come up with 16 more opening chapter quotes and do a ton of house keeping, but after that, I’ll start trying to sell this bad boy. It seems appropriate that I would finish the rough of my 4th novel the same week that the 1st is finally hitting bookstores.

I’ve sent TGC to Reader Force Alpha. I’ll let their feedback percolate before going back to take another shot at cleaning up TGC. I like to work on a project until it is done, then step back, work on another project for awhile so I have to change voice, and then go back to the first. I find that gives me a fresh set of eyes.  So while that’s going on, I’ll be editing my half of Dead Six in with Mike’s half. He’s cranking along despite being at “Don’t cut the red wire! NOOOOO! HUGE EXPLOSION!” School. (another hat tip to Chris and the boys at the Gun Counter for the laptop).

When Reader Force Alpha is finished savaging me, calling me names, and poking me with hot sticks, I’ll go back and do the 2nd draft.  Don’t bother asking how you can get on Reader Force Alpha. They are a top secret, ultra-elite squadron of the finest proof-readers in history. Rumor has it that one of them is a former X-Men who lost his powers during the events of World War Hulk. One of them isn’t even a person… It is a combintion of non-Euclidian geometires and colors beyond the visible spectrum from outer space, far beyond human comprehension.  I suspect that their leader is actually the goddess Belona, returned to our reality on a flaming chariot to pick apart my comma usage. And the last one is Bob Westover.

So we’re down to SIX DAYS until MHI is officially on shelves. Though I’ve already gotten e-mails from bookstore owners who’ve got them already.

The one term king of hell

I’ve decided that Barack Obama is probably going to be a one term president. Oh, that’s not just wishful thinking on my part, by watching him lately; I think he knows it too.

He’s pushed way too far, way too fast. He’s done more to advance FDR’s progressive agenda in 6 months than FDR managed in his first term. Obama knows he has no time to lose. This will be his greatest, and only opportunity to reshape the US into his utopian vision.

I think he also realizes that he doesn’t even really have 4 years. By pushing this hard, there will be an inevitable backlash, and the stupid party will pick up seats from the evil party in the 2010 elections. How many seats remains to be seen, but it might be enough to thwart the total revamping of America into Big Dumb Canada.

If you look at the actions of our government over the last six months, all they have done is passed or pushed legislation designed to accomplish the opposite of what they’ve said they wanted to accomplish.

We need to save the economy, so we’re going to yank a bunch of money out of it, tax it, and stick it into places that won’t stimulate jack squat except for Democrat political allies, and ruin the value of the dollar forever in the process.

We need to save the environment, so we’re going to tax America into oblivion, knowing full well that it will only drive the last of our manufacturing jobs overseas to countries who don’t care about the environment. 

Healthcare is inefficient and costs too much, so we’re going to raise the costs by a trillion dollars, make it as efficient as everything else in the government, and in the process, we’ll also make it so that you’re more likely to die, live sicker, have less freedom, and end medical research forever. 

The banks (goaded on by government regulation), were out of control, so we’re going to put more government regulation on them, hell, never mind, we’ll just take them over outright, and then force them to follow more of the same government policies that caused the problem in the first place.

The auto industry is in crisis, (while the non-union companies are doing okay) so we’re going to take that over too, throw more money at it, and then let the union run it.

So in six months, the government has grabbed the US economy by the spine, taken over the auto industry, the insurance industry, the finance industry, and is poised to pass the largest tax increase in history, and take over the medical industry.  FDR was a piker in comparison.   

So, what do every single one of these things have in common (besides not solving the problem they were floated to solve?). Every single one increases the stranglehold the federal government has on our lives.

Everything they’ve done has made America weaker, and the weaker and poorer we become, the more they hope we will come to depend on the government. The progressives would rather have total control over a pathetic shell of a nation than just be a small part of a great one.  It is like that old adage, would you rather be a slave in heaven, or a king in hell?

Unfortunately, I think we took the king of hell and elected him president.

T minus 9 days and counting

M Day is coming. We are now in the single digits for the paperback release of Monster Hunter International. Review copies have been sent to various magazines and review webpages.

The e-book is out at Baen’s Webscriptions, and I’ve been getting bunches of e-mails from people who’ve now read the book, and it has been extremely humbling. When you put a lot of effort into something, and a reader comes back and tells you how it brightened their day, or they couldn’t put it down, or that it just captured their imagination, then you are on top of the world. You guys like it, I’ve managed to entertain you, and that, my friends, is an absolutely wonderful feeling.

And so is getting paid!  Book is doing well on Amazon. Still dominating in the Christian Romance (snort!) section on Tower (but they’ve got Jim Butcher in there for some reason too, so whatever), and I’m now as high as I’ve ever been on B&N. For the longest time, if you just put Correia into the search engine on Amazon I came up first (take that Correia Art Glass, which is really pretty by the way, and we’re probably cousins, so maybe you could hook me up for something nice for my wife’s birthday… just saying),but I was always further down the list on B&N and Tower, behind various cookbooks by Correias, and movies with Correias in them, but now I’m first.

I figure it is kind of like the Highlander, and various Correias will square off until there can be only one, but I’ve still got some pro baseball players and hockey players to go, and those guys are in better shape, so I shouldn’t talk too much smack. Man, I’m just glad my last name isn’t Jones or Brown.

I need a Japanese speaker

Is there anyone out there who is fluent in Japanese who would be willing to help me out with something that I’m writing right now? I need a few phrases, and I would like them to be better than the crap the internet translators put out.

And don’t mess with me and give me a bad translation and have the character say something like , “Chicken fish bathroom subway tentacle porn!” or “The man writing this is bald and fat and smells of strange cheeses.”  I will have it verified… By actual ninjas. Who I will then dispatch to your house…. I know people.

Anyway, shoot me an e-mail at monsterhunter45 AT hotmail DOT com if you are fluent in Japanese and you’d be willing to help write a few lines of The Grimnoir Chronicles.

EDIT:  I think we’ve got it.

General update on stuff:

We’re up to 27 entries so far in the Great MHI Patch-Off.  I’m leaving it open until the end of August, because frankly, most folks haven’t read the book yet. I’m amazed by how good the entries are so far and also how many there have been. These are awesome guys.

In writing news, I’m at 124,000 words in The Grimnoir Chronicles: Hard Magic.  I’m in the final action sequence, but it is an epic event, from four POVs, with lots of stuff going down, so I’m not sure how long it will be exactly, but at the rate I’m going, I feel like I should have the 1st draft of TGC:HM done in the next few weeks.

I still need to come up with about another dozen fake historical quotes from people from the 1850s-1930s. I enjoy making those up, but right now I’m just writing, which is different than tweaking quotes, so I’ve got to go in the direction the muse takes me.

I’m eager to get the 1st pass done, so that I can let it sit and percolate. Usually what I like to do when I finish a book is to let is sit for awhile while I work on something else. That way when I go back and read it again, I’ve got fresh eyes, plus my cadre of the elite Reader Force Alpha will have had a chance to pick through it and tell me where I was stupid, forgetful, lame, boring, illiterate, had my head shoved up my butt, was smoking crack, hadn’t gotten enough sleep, forgot how to spell, or other such things. They’re the best of the best, and they like to hurt my feelings.

Meanwhile, another bit of my custom 5.56 Race AK project is done. Super Machinist Mike Bond has finished my aluminum forearm, so I get to pick it up soon. I will post pictures. Now all I need is the trigger group, stock, pistol grip, muzzle attachement, optics, and finish, and I’ll be done. Plus, I think I’m going to go order one of those Magnolia adapters so it can take AR mags. This should be a fun one.

Monster Hunter International Patch Contest!

Recently I discovered Facebook, and I was pleased to find that a couple of folks had created Monster Hunter International patchs for teams that they invented for their home towns.

Part of the fun of creating the MHI universe was the idea that all the people like me out there in the world could imagine themselves actually killing monsters for a living. I set it up so that there were an ever expanding number of regional teams.  The main team out of Cazador had the Happy Face with Horns that you’ve all seen. Atlanta had a lop eared bunny with a switchblade. (hat tip to Sluggy Freelance). Then there were others, Smoking Elvis out of Vegas, (longtime Boingo fan) a Fire Breathing Warthog, and a few others that were also not specified as to where they were from. The newest was a Walrus with a Banjo based out of Denver. (Team Haven).

So here is the contest. Create your own MHI patch using whatever your creative abilities are, and then send it to me at monsterhunter45 AT hotmail or post it on the Facebook page Monster Hunter International, Hunter Unite!  The book releases in less than 2 weeks, so I’ll leave the contest open until the end of August, and then I’ll take a poll and let the public decide which patch is the most awesome.

The RULES: The patch has to be military style, in subdued colors like OD or brown.  It has to say MHI or Monster Hunter International somewhere on it and 1895 for the founding.  It can be any shape, and there can be other words on it if you want.  The words do not have to be in English if you want to take it out of the country. On that note, I’ve actually got a short story in the works called Monster Hunter Mesopotamia (and obviously that patch would be tan).

I don’t care if you do it with fancy computer programs or color it in crayon, but for me to post it, it will need to be a Jpeg.

Make sure you include what town/region your patch represents in your title, because that’s what they will be known as in the voting.

Entries will be due by the last day of August.

The PRIZE: For whoever wins the poll, I’ll mention your patch in MHI:2 so it will become official cannon in the MHI universe and I’ll send you an autographed copy of Monster Hunter International.  If your town is already represented by another team in the MHI universe I might have to tweak accordingly, so the geography of where it is from will have to be at my discretion.

SPREAD THE WORD: Now obviously everything I do is based on selling more books, so please tell your friends, post it to your blog, sneak messages through the prison chow line, etc.  The more entries, the better.

California is broke

Recently I posted about my former home state’s financial woes, and how California is in desperate need of a bail out from all of us other states, because they are too big to fail.  They say that they’ve cut all that they can possibly cut, and can’t cut anymore.  I was told after that blog post what a big mean jerk face I am, for wanting my to keep my filthy capitalist red state money.

Maybe they’re right. Look at this list. I’m sure pooooor California just can’t cut the budget anymore.
