The words are gathering and a number, 30,000, comes nearer. These are the finest words I have ever put together under one fictional heading, and it is my sincere hope that they are the most innovative too.
As a story of speculative fiction, this is going to be one that has not been done before. That is my goal. The reader will not have seen anything like this.
So far, nearly 30,000 words so far, I am living up to this standard. It is exciting, it is terrifying, and it is incredibly difficult.
Is the bar too high?
My feeling is that the bar is never too high, but I do have to decide when to stop tinkering, when to stop scrutinizing everywhere in the feeble reach for revision perfection.
And sometimes if the limbo bar is held just too low for success, you can arch your back and strategically use your stomach to nudge the damn bar up just high enough to get by without disrupting the entire conga line.
How’s that for a metaphor?
Be excited. This piece has a large part of my soul embedded within. An no one will see it coming.
Rune Works is ecstatic to announce that R.J. Huneke's newest thriller novel will also become a graphic novel written by the author!
"I feel this work has a lot of intrigue for potential readers, and with its sharp, visual qualities, making a dystopian graphic novel makes a lot of sense," says Huneke.

I've done it!
The story has been written, and the first draft of my newest dystopian thriller novel is complete!
It has been quite a ride, and my arduous research and many months of writing have yielded an incredible tale that shakes the notions of societal norms and controls.
Looking back on the process...

Thanks for all of the support!
Well, after many many arduous hours of work THE SUBLIMINAL RELIGION will be published and released on December 1, 2011!
This is my baby, and has been a culmination of my many artistic influences, including Orwell's 1984 and Mieville's The City & the City, for a long time now. The subliminal research that I did was fascinating to me, as were the characters that grew with me to traverse the cracked streets of New York City and Brooklyn in a time not too far removed from ours. I hope everyone enjoys this book, as much as I have loved being a part of its creation.
The dystopian speculative thriller involving subliminal messaging, Disney, the Tea Party and two young film students trying to avert disaster will finally see the light of day thanks to a small Amazon press and Rune Works, and it will be available in a gorgeous trade paperback for $12.99 and as an e-book as well.
Pre-orders are currently taking place now through a cut-off date (that will be announced in November), and anyone who pre-orders is guaranteed a SIGNED copy!
I hope you all love this!
I have turned the tide and started on my journey. Words and Worlds hang in the balance and I am writing it all down before the RJ Tower! Read about my newest novel on CyberwarSeries.com
