The Journey of SILVER BROWN

Bless Its Pointed Little Head

The metamorphosis of my sixteenth chapter is progressing steadily at this point. I’m finding that the second half has been easier to edit than the first, since large chunks of it have already been written. Some paragraphs just needed to be rewritten to reflect the perspective of a different character, but all the main concepts are there at least.

This chapter didn’t really start pupating until I chopped off its head and made the head a chapter unto itself. I’ve been editing both these chapters simultaneously, and it’s amazing the number of interesting new appendages the head has grown since it separated from the body. The experience definitely brought John Carpenter’s The Thing to mind, which in my not-so-humble opinion ranks right up there with The Godfather and Star Wars as one of those timeless classics of cinematic excellence that every man, woman and child must see at least once before they die…

The Interview is Coming Soon (Apparently)

This week I got back in touch with that guy I recorded that podcast with a while back, to ask him about the status of the interview. When June 3 came and went uneventfully, my first thought was that nothing came of those thirty minutes I chatted with him. I imagined some omnipotent media gatekeeper in a Brooks Brothers suit pounding his Princeton class ring-endowed fist on the table in some random unremarkable Manhattan boardroom, declaring to his flock of pencil-necked underlings that this interview was far too outrageous for the air. To my pleasant surprise, if there were any corporate overlords involved, they have been appeased. Quoth the dude…

I’ve Been Interviewed!


Indeed it was. First-ever Silver Brown-related interview to boot. Fully enjoyed that experience; the guy interviewing me was probably more nervous than I was. Although to be fair, the backstory of how the book came into existence would probably make any rational person shit themselves. Not me, though. I actually lived through that nightmare, so it doesn’t have quite the same effect. He told me the podcast is coming out on June 3, so I guess I’ll have more details about that to share with you then.
