The Rough Draft

If you can't go through it. Go around it.

The Caledon Badlands – Ontario

So this week I learned from one of the guys posting on IBAR (International Brotherhood of Adventure Riders) that the Caledon Badlands are now closed to public access and to drill the point home, they’ve erected a fence along the roadside that borders it. Don’t know why they’ve taken this step but I’m sure it’s for some bullshit reason. It’s always frustrating when you lose a shooting location. The Badlands isn’t very big, maybe two football fields in size but it had a great texture and color. I’m going to miss shooting there.

I also got hit by the IRS is going to arrest you phone scam. As a rule I don’t answer any long distance calls that come from numbers not in my phone book. So apparently the IRS is going to arrest me for unpaid taxes. That’ll be interesting seeing as I’m a Canadian but I’ll keep you updated…

As for the writing side of things, I’ve finished the rough draft of Reliance which is a parallel story time wise to Devil’s Gambit but a character prequel to Devil’s Ante for one of the main characters. It’s essentially a modern western. I’m now back on the rough draft for Devil’s Ante and once that’s done, I’ll go back and revise the rough draft for Reliance. Right now the plan is for a Fall release of Reliance and a December release for Devil’s Ante. So yeah, I’m not thirty day release guy but then I pretty much knew that going in. On the plus side, I do try to be entertaining story guy, so if the trade off is time, I think it’s worth it.

As always you can purchase Devil’s Gambit on Amazon in either paperback or Kindle.

Tomorrow is my day off and I’m going to use it to explore some gravel roads north east of the Hockley Valley. Should be fun.
