|objects in the universe may be larger than they appear|
SHADOW POINT was more or less a locked room mystery - one claustrophobic location from which there was no escape (at least until page 254) and a handful of characters.
ROMEO FAILS was set in a very small Midwest town with a slightly bigger cast of characters.
But HEAVENLY MOVES takes place in the city of San Tomas, CA and Heavenly Wilcox, the main character, has friends! Family! Neighbors! Coworkers! Criminals! (at work & home) Not to mention the rottweiler and the band...
Ah, the world building! It may be my favorite part of novel writing. (you'd think it would be the words, but apparently that extra L makes all the difference) I hope you enjoy the world o' San Tomas. I have big plans for it!

"I'd seen a little blue Datsun B210 parked there, covered with typical San Tomas bumper stickers exhorting us to visualize world peace, visualize whirled peas, practice random acts of kindness and visit the Mystery Spot, among other things."
Hey, remember the B210?
|yeah me neither|
Wait - I'm already providing all this free blogaliciousness...
You should give ME a free bumper sticker!
OK, OK, fine, I'll work on the freebies. You just enjoy your whirled peas. :-)

J. D. Wilcox is Hev's older brother and her only sibling. He's an auto mechanic, 26, described as a muscular 6'1" and lives in Hev's hot & dusty hometown somewhere near beautiful Sacramento, CA. Hev's parents bought her a '73 Camaro as a graduation present at J.D.'s suggestion, which he then fixed up. Hev loves her big brother, but suspects his occasional visits to San Tomas are more to see the Camaro than her. In this slightly edited scene, he is wearing a ratty Pep Boys t-shirt:
That's enough for now. :-) But remember those Pep Boys t-shirts?
|the cornerstone of J. D.'s wardrobe|
Super cheap (like $2, I'm thinking?) and SUPER thin. The original tissue Ts... I don't think they sell those anymore. Bummer.
On a happier note, just 6 more weeks 'til the release of HEAVENLY MOVES! Now that's peppy!!!
