Walkin’ to My Door, Here She Comes

Nothing much to report on the “Lie” front except that I’m still doing my self-promotion. Later today, I’ll sign up for a Goodkindles ad. They found me on Twitter and as “Robocop” taught me, you gotta spend money to make money. It also taught me to take the stairs. I’ve also got a few friends reading “Lie” so I can get some reviews on sites like Amazon. If anyone would like to read a free copy and review my eBook for a site, I’d be greatly appreciative.

“Tangle Core” and “Murderhounds”. “Tangle Core” and “Murderhounds”. “Murderhounds” is still becoming the harder one to write, and I figured out why yesterday. “Tangle Core” is about two tortured folk. If there’s anything I know, it’s torment. “Murderhounds” is… a bloody popcorn festival. The “problem” is that I don’t wanna treat it like a typical popcorn horror flick. I want the villains to have genuine relationships with each other, for instance. That doesn’t come from an “all characters must be three-dimensional” place because I don’t feel that way at all. Which is why the victims will be pretty two-dimensional. Two-dimensional doesn’t mean boring, just that what you see is what you get. But back to the Murderhounds. I guess the roles of dimensionality are swapped here. Anywho. When I was coming home from seeing “Elysium” (which I hope you all do sometime soon), I got the crazy idea to give each of the Murderhounds a theme song. The film and the idea have nothing to do with each other, it’s just the way the mind works (when it wants to). The best way to describe Lucy is a Gothic Lolita with a giant cleaver. So, in my atypical nature, of course I gravitated to Die Antwoord’s “Fatty Boom Boom” [NSFW]. I can’t tell you how giddy I was when that clicked. Partially because I LOVE the visual of a Goth-Loli running around with that song playing. But also because it clued me into her personality, something I didn’t have a clear idea of until that ride home. It takes a very special person to exist with that criteria. Yesterday, I figured out what the other two characters’ themes were. One’s more typical with the genre and the other’s more typical with the character, both are great choices. I also thought it’d be fun to have songs mix with each other when more than one Murderhound is onscreen. Y’know, a mashup.

I’m preparing my first music video these next two weeks. I have a song from a musician that I’m gonna listen to over and over and over again until I know more about it than most ever will. That’ll help when it comes to plan how it’ll look. After two weeks, rehearsals’ll start and a while after that, I shoot.

Have some time to kill? Why not read the first four chapters of my very first novel. It’s titled “Lie” and it’s by me, Rathan Krueger. It’s about four women who go on a getaway to help one of their own through a rough patch. It was described to me recently as a modern “Little Women”, but methinks that was for giggles. If those chapters tickled your fancy, pick up “Lie” for only $1.99 wherever eBooks are sold. Thanks.
