That's right, the Capitol book goes! HAPPY CINCO DE MAYO!
The newest novel has crossed over the 40K word mark and soared on into exciting typeset-entrails woven, like a battlefield incision skillfully tying purple ropes to a sharp blade and slowly extending them for many fathoms.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that writing at length - while keeping the characters, real, observant, engaging and deep - is very difficult, and is in many ways every bit as tedious as the sadist warrior ensuring that his enemy lives to see his body cross paths with his own intestines. For all of that horrific and arduous labor, however, there is the well deserved feeling of a remarkably well done job, whether the warrior's tool be a short sword, a typewriter, or a pen.
Persistence, regardless of entanglements, is key.
Persist, my friends.
Newest contributor to Fantasy Matters with a Stephen King Review and Other Interesting News Concerning New Novels (Films possibly?) and More
Well it's been a couple of hard fought months in this author's life. Family and work have been on the front-lines and been priority, but I vow here and now to write you folks in on the happenings much more often on this very blog. I have not ceased to read/write/create voraciously, and there are a few very incredible projects in the works that will be announced on here very soon.
What I can say now is that the R.J. Huneke novel THE CAPITOL MOVEMENT is well underway with more than 150+ pages written and edited already; this dystopian thriller will act as a start to a new series, where the Rune Works published novel THE SUBLIMINAL RELIGION would fit in as a prequel to this innovative work. More info will be available on it soon. I promise!
Today's exciting news involves my acceptance to officially contribute to the reputable, interesting, and all-encompassing Fantasy Matters. They proudly project book reviews, film opinions, and even critical looks at the Fantasy art that projects across our beautiful universe! Here is a snippet from their introduction:
"As we've made very clear on this website, we here at Fantasy Matters are big fans of Stephen King's The Dark Tower series. And so, needless to say, we are VERY excited about the release of another book in the series: The Wind through the Keyhole. This book will be generally released on Tuesday, and we will celebrate this event with a review of the book from a new Fantasy Matters contributor: R.J. Huneke [link to the Impulsive Review]. It will be an exciting day indeed!"
Check out the entire Impulsive Review above and remember that Stephen King writes "there will be water when God wills it."
Remember John Lennon. He did not just sing for peace; he acted for peace.
It was thirty years ago tonight that one of the greatest men, a last of a dying breed that included Dr. King, Gandhi, JFK and RFK, was assassinated in New York City outside his home. For John's wife, Yoko Ono, and family I'd like to say that I'm so sorry. John did more for humankind than can even be described. His dreams and hopes for us are still alive, because his spirit is still with us. Imagine.

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
