Prometheus

I am sooooo excited to see the new movie, Prometheus. I've long believed they needed a beginning to Ridley Scott's Alien series. I am such a fan of the entire franchise and I even liked the Alien versus Predator movies, though I was worried they'd be corny like Feddy versus Jason. Surprisingly, they made sense. But, now my yearning for answers to the origins of the Alien species is about to become reality. It only makes me want to write a horror story based in space. Maybe someday, but right now the galaxy belongs to our 711 authors, Ronald Coleborn and Melvyn Riley, who are just finishing up the Phoenix Earth season one tv book series. Maybe we'll all eventually co-author a space horror trilogy similar to Alien, Event Horizon and Pandorum. I'm game ;) They can write the space adventure, and I'll pepper it with my sick and twisted tales, haha.

Dru out.

D.N.A. is Underway!

The response to D.N.A. - David Noble, Alien, is amazing. I didn't expect it to outdo the Werecat launch, but it did just that. For those of you who are fans of movies like E.T., Super 8 and I Am Number Four, this movie book is for you. Thanks to my fan base for keeping me pumped to write more and more. I've got a lot more planned in the near future, so look for books from me in the coming months, but don't look too soon, because I'm not on the schedule for a while yet. I just released my first trilogy and a standalone alien saga on the heels of that so 711 Press isn't penciling me in any time soon. But I'll keep you posted.

Finished My Fourth Movie Book: D.N.A.

Wow, it has been a rollercoaster ride since I signed with 711 Press. But I'm not complaining. Daniel Middleton and Jaime Vendera have been wonderful and it's been great having Jaime oversee my 711 projects. I honestly have never been pushed this hard to write, but thanks to Jaime and my wonderful editor Rich, I've been able to complete all three books in the Werecat Saga and my one-off D.N.A. in less than a year. For those of you who are new writers, I can honestly say that it definitely helps when you have a team that has input on your plotting and who can guide you every step of the way.

I've definitely become a much better storyteller thanks to Jaime. And having Rich on the team, all my stories are streamlined and polished. Speaking of editing, Nocturnal was cut by 8,000 words when it was edited, partly due to the 711 movie timeline requirements and also because I tend to ramble in my writings :) But I fixed it this time. Even after three final passes, I only wrote 300 extra words over the minimum requirements. Not that it's what I intended to do, but that's what this story called for. So, good luck editing, Rich, because you can only cut 300 words this time ;)
