Why the Craziness??

I have over 700 “friends” on Facebook and followers on Twitter. Most of them are VERY cool and a lot are fans of the books. However, I’ve noticed an alarming increase in communication from people who prescribe to conspiracy theories, blobsquatchaholism, and outright craziness. I normally don’t engage with them except on the most cursory of levels. However, there were a couple of recent posts/engagements that I could not let go: Flying bigfoots and rocksquatches abounded! Oh! What was I to do? Those of you who know me know I am very outspoken. This is where the success of the books has helped me. I have found a tremendous vein of patience, which is refreshing and wonderful – for everyone involved!!

But, no more. If you want to espouse about what you “see” and “know” without substantiation or with photos of normal, everyday forest stuff that you claim is or from hundreds of bigfoots, not to mention the infamous PAREIDOLIA… go ahead. You just won’t be able to do it on my time. I’ve had enough and you just cannot reason with crazy.

I go out in the woods a lot…. Likely more than the majority of people involved in bigfootery. I see many strange things that I would LOVE to attribute to sasquatch. It’s Occam’s razor, which states: “that among competing hypotheses, the one with the fewest assumptions should be selected.” That sooooo doesn’t apply to the world of bigfoot, now does it?

Enough about the dysfunction of our “community!” Let’s give away some books, eh? THREE years ago, the story of Anna and Eve was born! And now we are headed for the big screen. How CRAZY is that? It’s the kind of crazy you CAN reason with 🙂 Come give the page a LIKE to be entered for a drawing this weekend:

And…. SCENE

20140929_090102_resized

What do you get when you put four crazy and creative people in a weird, beautiful and fascinating place like Portland, Oregon? Also, a trip to where the opening scenes of the Stephen King cult classic The Shining were filmed?? (Timberline Lodge)

THIS^^

FIFTY scenes/flashbacks/transitions for the feature length adaptation of EVE . Myself, Dom Orozco, Gerald Morris Jr. and Megan Hurt Emms collaborated on bringing Anna and Eve to “life” (for lack of a better phrase). We also cast our main characters and looked at filming in Oregon – California is crazy expensive to film in. Thanks for that, Hollywood >(

The next step is writing the screenplay. After that, we send the script to the actors we chose in hopes one will accept and write a “letter of intent” stating they will accept the role. This will make the screenplay very marketable to bigger film companies. You see, we aren’t going to do a Kick Starter or Go Fund Me endeavor. We’re going for the gusto. We also have Sundance………… if we get even a showing (a SELECTION would be incredible!!) of EVE there, it will give us tremendous marketing power. We still hope to be in preproduction by next spring……….

That’s it for now. Look for another update soon! Plus, you know what time of year it’s getting to be…. That means some great deals on the books!!
