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!
Sabriel must learn to battle the unknown evils that continue to stack against her, in the place of her missing father, who is, or was, the Abhorsen: a powerful magic wielding necromancer who fights...
Rarely do works of speculative fiction involve such world building, round character creation and invoke an utterly riveting story in an artistic combination of intriguing depth; such is the case with J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings, which is why, for a genre, he has often been named the Godfather, as few live up to his magic, or writing prowess.
Garth Nix has succeeded in doing this with his speculative work Sabriel (the first in the Abhorsen Trilogy), and though he is not Tolkien, by any stretch, he is certainly a talented, innovative and incredible writer who has made such a world in his book that it should be considered a "must read" and a classic.
The stark language and the thrilling story keep the reader in such a state of involved suspense that this world and the world that contains the Old Kingdom could be misconstrued. The protagonist, an 18 year old woman named Sabriel, is truly unique and displayed with the uttermost care by the author; she is an amazing character!
The world involves the constant threat of the Dead to rise from beyond the Gates of Death into the world of Life. Sabriel must learn to battle the unknown evils that continue to stack against her, in the place of her missing father, who is, or was, the Abhorsen: a powerful magic wielding necromancer who fights to ensure that the Dead stay that way.
The book builds in suspense until the pages fly to the climax and beyond...into the next novel of the series.
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
