Now it can be told ... film edition

As you know, I've been waiting for a few things to fall into place, so I can announce them here at Blogpocalypse. It is with pride that I recently announced the fine folks at Bleak House Books would be publishing my new crime novel The Deputy. Now I'm happy to report that producer Brad Wyman -- the dude responsible for some pretty cool films -- has optioned my novel Go-Go Girls of the Apocalypse. Mr. Wyman is eager to make the film version as close to the novel as possible, and I'm thrilled as hell.

I'll keep you updated as I find out more.

As long as he didn't have anything to do with Paul Blart: Mall Cop. There's selling out, and then there's selling out *King of Queens* style, which, like...no.

Dude had a hand in FREEWAY? Your baby is in good hands, Mr. G. Congratulations are in-fucking-DEED in order, my man.

I fucking love FREEWAY. Love it. And here's hoping your filmed post-apocalypse is as close an adaptation as McCarthy's looks. In fact, why don't we push for a double feature?
