This weekend, I made an attempt to see Wonder Woman. But when I showed up an hour in advance at the movie theater, it was sold out except for a few seats in the front. So I’ll try again next weekend. But it’s a good sign … especially for a movie the studio gave up on. They hardly even advertised it, but word of mouth is pretty potent.
So I spent Saturday building book covers. These are the covers for short stories coming later in June.
And these are the ones for July, including a GALCOM universe novella and short story. It also marks the first mystery I’m publishing.
My research topics for this week were:
- Son-Ly War
- Harvey Kurtzman
- Tents (research for GALCOM 3)
- Grizzly Adams (no relation to me)
- Japanese Battleship Mutzo
- Pagoda mast
- Edward Teach
- Gilbert Baker
- Military name tag placement (Research for GALCOM 3)
- Plasma meteor (doesn’t that sound cool?)
- William Mulholland
- California Water Wars
- St, Francis Dam
It’s interesting looking at this list after a week. There’s a lot of topics on here that I don’t remember anything about, and others that, as I typed them, I remembered what I enjoyed about the topic. Despite growing up in Southern California and seeing places like Mulholland Drive, I had no idea why it was named that, nor did I know about the California Water Wars. The St. Francis Dam ended William Mulholland’s career in public works when it collapsed only a few hours after he inspected it.
