I know it has been a while, readers, but I am back! And what is more, I am going to keep my promise to speak more often to you all, here, on my personal soapbox, because many exciting things are in the works and 2013 is going to be a revolutionary year!
For starters, I have this fancy new domain name - RJHuneke.com - so as to shorten the typing load of, well, everyone, and my production company Rune Works has its own brand spankin' new web site - at RuneWorks.net
.My finished manuscript is currently being shopped around to agents
- it's a whopper of a dystopian thriller with one of my all time tenacious female protagonists - and a graphic novel version, as well as a screenplay of it has already been undertaken by yours truly. While that might not be new news, I can tell you that the polished ms and the art will be seen in 2013 in the not too distant future and these pieces will be impactful!As head of Rune Works, I can tell you that the production company's second published novel will be released in 2013, and we are proud to announce that it will be a first-of-its-kind Poetry Journey Through Graphic Comic Art - Cassandra DeMario
's finely tuned words will meet R.J. Huneke's intriguing artwork in a way that takes the reader on a visual journey through a story that is told by poetry and visual art.
More works from other writers are in the works too!And we have not forgotten about the dream either...full feature-length film will be coming to Rune Works!As you can see, the behind-the-scenes aspects of numerous projects have been worked on furiously over the past year, and they will see fruition very soon, folks!Stay Tuned!~RJ
Aside from an overwhelmingly successful reading of THE SUBLIMINAL RELIGION
at the Book Revue, the novel has continued to get rave reviews from readers, and will continue to be featured in news magazines, libraries, and book stores. On a personal note, the sequel is already well underway, and I am greatly enjoying the process of creating in the dismal world
that we left off with at the end of THE SUBLIMINAL RELIGION
.A graphic comic book - drawn by the talented and renowned artist Matt Helbig
- is also beyond the infant stages, and it will be a mystery involving zombies, a great cast of human characters, and is heavily influenced by the TV innovation LOST among other things.A children's series has also been started up between myself and Kurt Zisa; it will consist of many of the things I feel are lacking in quality kids' books: mystery, suspense, technology, robots, and a journey through Penn Station.Lastly my published short story "Lucky" will be reprinted in the US by Abandoned Towers Magazine . . . stay posted for updates as the when and where!Best,RJ
