AKA I have no idea what to say
Right?! I know... so lame. You should probably, like, close the window now and go do something else. Read a book, maybe. I suggest Warm Bodies, since it's amazing and you should read the book before the movie comes out this weekend (and you should also go see the movie this weekend, since it, too, is amazing). You could watch a movie now, too, if you don't want to read. I recommended Django Unchained if it's playing anywhere near you. That movie... that fucking movie... if it were a person, I'd make out with it (although it would likely be messy and ugly and maybe violent, IDK. You know how Tarantino movies are... crraazzzyyyy). If you don't want to do either of those, you could go for a run (hahahaha not me) or take a nap (TOTALLY ME) or go goof off on twitter (um yeah...).
Are you still reading this? Hmmmm... okay, then I guess I'll keep babbling. So, let me tell you what I've been up to lately. Last week, I signed a contract for something amazing. I can't spill details yet, but suffice to say I'm SUPER HAPPY and honored and elated and stoked and a whole bunch of other words that all mean the same thing... I'm fucking excited.
Hmmmm... what else... well, I started writing a Corrado-centric book within the SEMPRE world. It's a prequel of sorts, spanning his early life and beginnings in the mob. Other characters will, of course, make an appearance. Their lives are all sorts of intertwined. I'm excited about it. Corrado is one of my favorite characters to write.
As far as the sequel to SEMPRE goes, it's simmering for the moment with my people, sent off for editing and the sorts. I don't yet have a release date or an official name or a cover or anything I can offer except my promise that the second I'm given the go-ahead, I shall shout all of those answers from the rooftop (and then I'll post it online, because I live in practically Narnia, so you won't hear me no matter how loud I scream).
What else, what else... I started working on two other new stories. I have no idea where they'll go or what will happen with them, so I don't know why I'm even talking about them. I'm just tinkering around with a few new genres (paranormal romance, horror). There's also this thing sorta in the works that starts with screen and ends with play that rhymes with "mean day", which I think Monday should be renamed to, because Monday is the meanest day of the week *glares at hands still covered in super glue from where I glued my hands together accidentally this morning* But whatever, yeah... one of those may or may not be potentially tinkered with at the current moment.
Let's see... I'm wearing Zayn Malik socks, I'm watching The First 48, and I'm eating Arby's curly fries (told you, no idea what to say). I'm backed up on mail and owe a bunch of people swag, which I will get out to them within the next week or so. I PROMISE.
Uhhhhh, and if you'd like to contribute, producer Giovanni Agnelli is still wanting videos from readers of SEMPRE telling why you love the story/what it means to you. It doesn't have to be long, or detailed, or anything... just honesty and passion is what he needs. If you make one, be sure to let me know so I can add you to the list of people I need to send some swag to this week. You can link me to the videos via email (contact@JMDarhower.com) or by tweeting them to him at @GiovanniAgnelli.
I think that's all I got *stares blankly at screen*
OH OH OH... Happy Birthday to my friend Sarah (@Bellasexeqtner on twitter). Wish her a happy birthday, will ya? And send her pictures of penguins. She LOVES THEM. *snickers*
