How the book began…

The following is a short video, showing how I sketched out an idea for a story, the very beginning. It evolved into my novel to be released in October 2019, titled, The Next Testament.

I usually start with a title. Everything points in that direction. From there, I start sketching out some of the big concepts and action that will take place. Then it’s characters. More vids to follow, showing the details of the process in short form. Stay tuned.

Water Taxi to Venice Airport

The water taxi ride to Venice Airport is another one of those things that costs some money but is worth it. Here’s the video, leaving the heart of Venice all the way to the airport. Stay with it to see an airplane on final approach. You’ll see plenty of action in the small canals, too.

Enjoy the journey where you’re going.

Nostalgia in Venice, Italy

DSC_3540I went through many, many rolls of Kodak film. From Tri-X and Pan-X black and white to Ektachrome positive film in large format. Always good stuff.
