So the time has come…

To start a new book.

Beginnings are always hard. Because the start point seriously moves in your head. I’m doing something new because I had an idea and I wanted to take a stab at it before I went back to something I’d done before. Sometimes it’s good to clean the brain before I head back into voices I’ve already written.

Now, mind you finding the voices of new characters is always difficult but fun. A few missteps though and well, I’ve already tossed out a few thousand words because it wasn’t fitting right.

Now I’m on the track and we’ll see how it goes.

Hellion will be out soon and well, I loved writing Ivo. Now I loved writing Trey and Kuro and the seekrit project is on the horizon as well. That was a hard one to do because man, the balance of that book was soooooo  tetchy. But I think it worked out.

So that’s where I am today. Working and plotting. With luck, you’ll see me come out of the darkness in a couple of months with 85,000 words on the page and ready to tackle the next project. Which will be a doozy.

Shit it’s Monday again….and well, once again, down into the pasture.

Yep… still standing with Dreamspinner Press and still have faith in the company.
These are MY decisions. Everyone has to make their own choices. My decisions about my business… like my decisions about my coffee or what I wear… are mine to make. No one but me is affected by my decisions. No one but me can make them.
Anyone who tells you I’m trying to persuade someone into “going my way on things” is full of shit. Fuck, you should see me trying to order for a table full of people. I take a constant poll on what people feel like eating and what they’re allergic to.
That said, I’m not a sheep. Nor do I intend to ever convince anyone to be one. Really, life’s about options and paths. You’ve gotta choose your own. It’s a giant choose your own adventures book and sadly, you can stain the pages and dog-ear them just like a regular book.
We have free will. If you’ve got a good relationship with someone and need advice, ask them for it. But keep in mind, don’t take advice from people whose criticism you would disregard. We all have our take on things but ask yourself, who has an agenda.
I have a firm agenda. I want to write entertaining books. I want to pay my rent. I want to make sure my dog’s nails don’t get too long. I want to never run out of calrose rice in my kitchen. I work to make sure my car is in running order. I work very hard at my friendships.
I also like Best Food’s mayo and Heinz ketchup. Yes I do use ketchup… just not on eggs. Or in spaghetti.
#TeamFreeWill
And I just like this gif. Because honestly, it looks like a shit ton of fun to do.

Ah, so long 4-day Weekend

I spent the weekend doing nothing but socialize, cook and well, plot.

There’s a new book on the horizon and I’m excited about it but it’s time to break down the chapters.

I also spent more than 40 minutes watching this.

 

Seriously, I adore this channel. I wish he did one every other day but let’s face it, that’s not realistic.

So, that’s where I am this weekend. Tomorrow, the wording begins!

Making Ramen

I’ll let you in on a secret. Well, it’s not really a secret but it’s something not a lot of people really remember.

Ramen is street food and simply a vessel for you to empty your leftovers onto. Sure, it can be elegant, elevated and curated the hell out of but… it can also really be what to eat because you’ve got a bunch of bits and pieces of food but nothing to make a whole meal out of.

Remember ONE thing: There are NO RULES in Ramen. Continue reading “Last Stop on the Rhys Ford’s Ramen Assassin Tour! Making Ramen!”

Ramen Assassin by Rhys Ford
Coming from Dreamspinner Press on June 25
Available in ebook and paperback.
Soon coming in Audiobook and Narrated by Kale Williams

When life gives Kuro Jenkins lemons, he wants to make ponzu to serve at his Los Angeles ramen shop.

Instead he’s dodging bullets and wondering how the hell he ended up back in the Black Ops lifestyle he left behind him. After rescuing former child star Trey Bishop from a pair of thugs in the middle of the night, he knows it’s time to pick up his gun again. But it seems trouble isn’t done with Trey, and Kuro can’t quite let go… of either the gun or Trey Bishop.

Trey Bishop never denied his life’s downward spiral was his own fault. After a few stints in rehab, he’s finally shaken off his Hollywood bad-boy lifestyle but not his reputation. The destruction of his acting career and his relationships goes deep, and no one trusts anything he says, including the LAPD. When two men dragging a dead body spot him on a late-night run and try to murder him, Trey is grateful for the tall, dark, and deadly ramen shop owner he lusts over—not just for rescuing him, but also for believing him.

Now caught in a web of murders and lies, Trey knows someone wants him dead, and the only one on his side is a man with deep, dark secrets. Trey hopes Kuro Jenkins will stick around to see what the future holds for them once the dust settles, but from the looks of things, neither of them may survive to find out.
