There are two curious post-modernist texts a writer can engage in reflexively: reviewing one’s own book, and the self-interview.
I will talk about things he was not able to get to during his Project Camelot interview: working in Hollywood as a writer. I shall discuss the ups and downs of getting his books and scripts optioned but not developed and financed, shooting a pilot for CBS and Sony that didn’t pass muster with the Madison Avenue guys’ focus groups so was never aired, dealing with players, liars, con artists and nymphomaniacs that plague Tinsel Town, and weird experiences and encounters with people like Ray Liotta, Dean Cain, Vincent Gallo, Bruce Willis and Winona Ryder. I will relate what it took to get a low-budget indie film made, winning awards at Slamdance and various festivals, taking a short documentary to Cannes, and surviving as a writer in LaLaLand.

Pearl #46, an all fiction and prose issue, a nifty journal out of Long Beach, California, is now out and contains my 4500 word story, “Tards,” which is part of Mysterium and written in early 2011.
The funny thing about Pearl is when it started back in the long ago, it was a female writer only zine, and it drove Charles Bukowski batty he could not get in it (he had to be in every small press zine, especially those out of the Los Angeles area) so he sent poems in under a female pen name.
Always good to be in Portland, Oregon, a very literary-friendly town and lots of good bookstores. I will be doing my radio shows from here on Wed and Sunday.
