French Connection Blues...

I worked on a cover layout for the book, this evening. Here's what I like most:

It'a a bit on the stark side, which I like. I have another one with a soft image of the Empire State Building in the background in place of the plain black, but that just seems too busy.

This is Pete's synopsis of the story. I only cleaned up the grammar and the spelling. It has very little to do with what actually happens in the book...well, until the end. I think it promises a completely different type of story...but it's not mine so I don't care. I'm happy enough that it's no longer a mess.

I shouldn't feel that way about something I worked on, but it's the only method I have to keep from killing somebody over what they did to my work. I came very close to doing that on a project I wrote and co-produced in Texas, years ago, and never want to get to that point, again. Fortunately, that catastrophe never saw the light of day.

It could well be that's all that kept me from cutting the motherfucking director's throat.

My jaw still hurts from that fall, 2 weeks back. Mainly just under my ears, where the joints are. I wonder if I broke something? Can you eat with a broken jaw?

What the hell, it keeps me from yapping too much...

OH MY, you're still hurting from the fall? Did you get any medical treatment?

No, I was able to move my jaw and still sip food and such, so I figured no big deal. I've since checked into ligament problems, and they can take up to 3 months to finally heal, depending on the severity. It's worst when I get up in the morning, but seems to slowly be lessening...and there ain't much to do about it except let it heal. I've got a doctor's appointment on the 26th; if it's not gone by then, I'll ask him.
