Do You Write With Patience?

Do you write with patience? I know I do. I’m sure 1/18th of the global population has been wondering if S.D. Hintz has thrown in the towel. First of all, I only do that in a locker room full of sweaty guys. Secondly, being an editor, writer, and full time blue collar man, pulling out the author card has its challenges, but one I’m still all too eager to embrace. Now is the time you ask: “So, what in the hell have you been doing?”

I’d like to say I’ve been penning another horror novel to add to my run, but the truth is I’ve been plunging into the depths of young adult/sci-fi/fantasy/adventure, which I’m sure is its own hybrid genre. Quite frankly, I know it’s one of the best tales I’ve written (with plans to turn it into a series) and sticks to the moral of turning a flaw into a forte. It is also a work that more than likely will not see the light of a day until I lock down an agent and/or mainstream publisher. I’ve put so much time and effort into it that I’m reluctant to settle for less. On the same token I’m a realist. While my hopes are as high as any author’s, I’m also aware that it takes extreme talent and latching onto the right people to have a shot at success. And still, I need to continue to write with patience.

So no, I haven’t quit writing, I’m just taking my sweet old time, tending my garden of grandiose storytelling, or so I tell myself. Write with patience. An author must sculpt with it. An author must submit with it. An author should embody it. A reader, on the other hand, can be as impatient as they want. Once they’re done reading your book, there’s ten million other authors to explore. It is the beauty of reading.

Bear with me, my friends. I write with patience. One day this golden book will grace your hands.

A Gripping 21st Century Pulp Novel

Are your ready for a gripping 21st century pulp novel? Here’s a recent review posted on Amazon for Patrick Rutigliano’s SURVIVING THE CRASH.

This is a cleverly plotted, nail-biting pulp tale, combining the best elements of twentieth century pulp novels, with some twenty-first century twists, such as a strong female lead character. Reminiscent of Howard stories, it gets your attention at the outset, and makes it hard for you to put down. Actually three episodes that form a whole, the three mesh together well. Great escapist fare, if you hanker for the fast and furious novels that were so popular in the Twenties and Thirties. Hopefully, this can be issued in a paper format as well, so you can experience the satisfying crunch of paper between your fingers! Bodes well for things to come from this author.
