I’ve had trouble breaking through a plot problem with Hollywood Jesus, the third instalment of The Hit Man Series. This afternoon it came to me how to amp up the rush and now I’m plunging forward through the book again, writing madly.
One of the things I enjoy about my main character, Jesus Diaz, is that he’s such a smart ass. That leads to more jokes and fun dialogue amid the heart-wrenching carnage, sex and violence. Here’s a bit I wrote tonight:
“Who’s the client?” you asked your boss, friend and amateur Ving Rhames lookalike, Chillie Gillie.
Chill wouldn’t say. Three worry deep lines appeared on his forehead, so you knew the client was a friend.
“What’d Fitzwald do?”
“Maybe nothing. Right now, all we know for sure is he’s an asshole. This a search for evidence sort of deal. This is not a search and destroy mission, you dig?”
“I dig, Shaft.”
Chill pulls a puss. “Shut your mouth.”
“What? Just haven’t heard anybody say ‘dig’ in a long time.”
“I’m bringing it back. I’m also thinking of bringing back the word ‘groovy’.”
“Groovy. I can dig it.”
“There you go.”
~ Bigger Than Jesus by Robert Chazz Chute is #1. Higher Than Jesus is #2. Look for the next book in the series at the end of April.
Jesus versus Salvador Dali and the FBI! These are the last two chapters of Bigger Than Jesus by Robert Chazz Chute: The Man You Are Not and The Man You Are. Enjoy!
Next episode: I interview Scout Trooper, master unicyclist and videographer/marketing genius Brian MacKenzie. Then we start a new reading: Higher Than Jesus. Expect explosions, jokes, sex and violence and funny surprises. Bad guys will burn! Um…I’m talking about my next crime novel, not the Brian MacKenzie interview. It will all be fun.
