Glad you liked Dirty Sweet. Yeah, Elmore and also Richard Price and James Ellroy and, well, there are plenty. I used to have the poster for Choose Me on my wall.

I just started reading your novel on your website - love the line about not wanting to go outside for a smoke in front of the free clinic... looking forward to the rest of it.

Trouble In Mind and Choose Me-- 2 favorites of mine as well.

Here's your honesty: it's all about luck and knowing the right person. I went to the American Film Institute and through there gave this particular script to a friend who gave it to a friend who gave it to a friend who got it to the director, who decided to mortgage his house to do it because he misunderstood all my themes. So if you have any film contacts, USE them, and if you live to network then your chances go up too.

Hey Adam
I might just take you up on your offer about the screenplay. Not my world. It's great to see the book in screenplay form, though. Very cool.
So honestly, what are the chances of a sale that actually makes it to the screen?
Be honest. I can take it.

Thanks for the advice partner! Really appreciate it. I'll make sure to dance at your next wedding.

Thank you, Adam! Great you liked the book!
The best way to get an agent is to bombard the fook out of them with queries. It's all a numbers game. Targeting appropriate agents helps too, but I'd hit as many as possible...ten a day.
Thank you again
Jason

Congrats on the book-banning. I'm honored to be your friend!

I noticed The Grifters on your film list. Talk about spare--Thompson is my hero. Blessings--Laura

Thanks for the invite, Adam. (I'm trying to do the friend thang with people who aren't racking up hundreds of them just for the purpose of spam-promoting themselves). Plus, you've got a great edge on your voice for your writing. Checked out the description online of "The Pleasure Drivers" -- interesting casting of Lauren Holley, Meatloaf, Billy Zane. I'll have to check it out.

Nice tat, dude. I've got my eye on you.

Hey, not all Aussies are nutters. Just most of us. Since I have flying pigs on my site, I'll let you guess which side I fall on. :-)

Thanks for stopping by.

Thanks for finding me here & I'm glad the tarantella dance between "show" and "business" worked out for your debut feature -- never solved the Vollman riddle but am (genuflecting) a Dutch fan.
