Lemon Shark Press to Enter Film Business 

Well, maybe not a feature or anything, but we plan on shooting a 5-minute scene based on our futuristic book due out this summer.  Here's a potential actress who will play the heroine.  Our hopes are the book rights get sold for a movie, and that our actors/actresses in the short will get noticed by agents and casting directors for the roles in the book and also other parts in Hollywood.  Stay tuned for our book release date and other particulars.

Kirby Wright launches first Futuristic Novel: PRELUDE TO THE APOCALYPSE

Paris Hilton and Lady Gaga are dead. So is the President. Psytrance parties rage as Palm Springs burns. Police and fire departments are gone. Marital Law is imposed to deal with the riots but the military is overwhelmed when Mexicans storm the border to reclaim California. Warlords battle private security forces for control of coastal towns.

Power, gas, and water are luxuries. Hummers and Motor Coaches are obsolete. The internet and cells are inoperative. Wifi is history. Stores have been ransacked. The black market thrives. Teenage gangs go door-to-door looting and killing. Suburbanites must either leave or risk getting slaughtered. Tent cities sprout like mushrooms from the beach into the desert.

Welcome to the Prelude to the Apocalypse.

Journey with Tony and Evo into the heart of the American Nightmare as they search for safe haven in a world that knows no rules.

Here's another poster from the 2009 International Writers Conference in Hong Kong.  This one is called INTERNATIONAL MEDIA SALON, and the title is "Sources of Literary Inspiration: How We Become Writers.  

Writers that shared their experiences are: Janet Charman, Wena Poon, Kirby Wright, Young-ha Kim, and Miguel Syjuco.   Apparently it was taped by the Journalism Dept. at Hong Kong Baptist University.  

I spoke with Kirby Wright and he said all he did was talk about his wild cross country road trip in the 70s with his friend George Balint.  "You should have seen what we saw in Grand Junction at 3 a.m., just a stone's throw from Utah," Wright told me.  

He wouldn't elaborate.
