Writing Projects, MHI:2, update

I’ve been asked this a lot lately, but yes, there will be an MHI: 2.  The overall story arc is actually a trilogy.  3 by Owen Zastava Pitt, with 2 other books set in the MHI universe, but written from a different perspective, coming later. 

At this time, I’m still working on 2, and the plan is to release it the same way I released 1, around the end of 2008.

 Book 2 is only half written, 100% plotted, but needs a ton of polishing and editing.  Book 3 exists entirely inside my brain.  Book 4, called Monster Hunter Alpha is the story of Earl Harbinger.  The final book I have planned in the MHI series is Monster Hunter Nemesis and tells the story of Special Agent Franks. 

I have other projects that I’m working on also.  Mr. Nightcrawler III is 3/4 of the way done.  I’m going to concentrate on MHI:2 first, mostly because the real Mr. Nightcrawler is a busy dude also.  We plan on releasing III online, serial style, like the last book.  This one is a lot bigger and more ambitious in scope and plot, but features the same raw, back and forth style as the others.  For those of you that have read MHI, but haven’t seen my earlier extemporaneous online writing:  http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=207390&highlight=nightcrawler+lorenzo  It was a totally random, quickly written thing, that actually came out well.  My portions are posted under my name, Correia.

I’m working on another project that I’m really excited about, but can’t comment on at this time.  The story idea is really odd, but not nearly as fantastical as MHI.  I’m really proud of it, and I think it is going to make a great stand alone book.  Though I’m excited about this one, it does have to take a back seat for now, just because of time constraints.

Movie Review: Automation Transfusion

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0469683/

Stayed up late last night to catch this one. 

A little while ago I talked about why I’m tougher on A movies than B movies.  And I’ll give  a pass to B movies that try hard, even if they suck.

Well, here’s an example as to why.  Automation Transfusion cost $30,000 to make.  The director and the producer are young and inexperienced.  The actors are a bunch of high school kids. 

And it still ROCKS. 

Is it perfect?  No.  There are some dumb things, and when they stop to explain the plot, I laughed out loud.  Some of the jerky camera is a touch much. 

But this movie is an example of why B Movies are great.  It’s got soul.  It is a hard core, balls to the wall, blood and guts, zombie flick.  It’s visceral.  It’s gross.  It’s violent.  And it has chainsaws. 

The reviews over on IMDB make fun of the acting.  I don’t know what they’re smoking, but I thought (relatively speaking of course) that these kids did an excellent job.  It isn’t masterpiece theater you dumbasses.  It is people getting eaten by zombies.  How much ’emoting’ do you want.

The plot?  Well, people get eaten by zombies.  That’s pretty much it.  Don’t overthink it. 

Overall, fellow B movie nerds, catch this flick.

New Group Buys Launched: Sig & STI

I’m running 2 group buys at the same time, from now until the end of the month.  Same deal as most of my group buys.  Prices will be awesome as usual.

I do not post group buy prices in public.  I do not send out complete price lists.  Go to each companies webpage, and pick which models and options you’re interested in, and then e-mail me at larry@fbmginc.com for a price quote. 

I’ll take orders until the end of March, and then turn in a bulk order. 

For STI, some guns will be in stock, and will ship quickly.  Otherwise, turn around time on STIs is about 8 weeks.

For Sig, some guns will be in stock, and ship quickly.  Some guns are new, and in high demand, and those you’ll have to wait for.  But I will be doing them at super cheap prices.  The 250 and 556 are still hot items, though I’ve got 5 250s and 3 556s in stock this week, and beginning of next week respectively.

This is about the 6th STI group buy I’ve run, and the first major Sig sale, though I’ve been a SigNificant (he he) dealer for about 2 years.  I don’t advertise prices, but I can promise you that they’re going to be excellent.  For those of you that participated in my CZ buy posted on this blog, you know I’m not kidding. 

If you get a quote, and you think it is an awesome deal, feel free to tell your friends or post this to other places online.    Some other bloggers posted the CZ buy on their pages, and it was a tremendous boost.
