Update: Film Rights...Second novel...

Sold film rights in April. Script near completion. More news to come...but a very gratifying process all around.

Second novel coming together...if you manage to pick up a copy of the Romanian edition of The Delivery Man there's a brief summary of the next novel, including the working title. You'll likely have to use Google Translator to make any sense of it.

Btw...read Bret Easton Ellis' Imperial Bedrooms...wow. Fast, dark, noir-ish, eerie, all about hollywood and desperation and exploitation. And that scene near the end? Holy sh*t!

Wonderful! I remember thinking while reading The Delivery Man, what a great film this could be.

Very excited for the next novel ;0)

Joe, I LOVED the Deivery Man and can't wait for the movie and your next book!!! This will really make a great movie :)

I'm so jealous that you've aready read Imperial Bedrooms - it's pre-ordered on amazon and I'm anxiously waiting for it :)

BB: thank you! i'm more than a little pumped about the film...especially the team that is developing it. i'll post more as it comes into focus. feel free to find me on fb. i really appreciate you reading the book.

Deena: so glad you found and enjoyed the book! should be interesting to see what they do with the movie...if/when they actually make it, who knows how and where it will end up. it's a brutal business so fingers crossed. Yes.. IB is intense, eerie and just plain good. Find me on FB and let's keep in touch.

I just finished the book and immediately got online hoping and praying that there was a second. It's almost 1am where I am in Belgium and I have not been able to put this book down for 2 days. I'm ecstatic that there will be a movie (although it'll probably never be better than the book). Is there a release date for the second novel?

Joe, you and your dad have the snappiest author blogs around!

When does the second novel come out? I'm looking forward to reading it and adding to The McGinniss Shelf (Sr. and Jr.).

Such a great book. Thanks for the wonderful read. It's a dark, broody, and dismal tale set behind the facade of glamor of the Las Vegas Strip. As a resident of the city, this tale is that of a side of Vegas not many see. It's the struggle many of this town's citizen see every day.

When I first read this book two years ago, I thought to myself: "What a great movie this would make." At this point, I didn't even know where your inspiration for this story stemmed from. I eagerly await the theatrical depiction of this book and hope that it finds it's place of legendary Sin City lore such as Fear and Loathing and Casino.

Thanks.

Hi Joe,

Sorry to hear of your father's passing. My wife, Barbara, and I knew and greatly enjoyed Joe, sr. during his time in Alaska. I shared a tent with him during the hike to the Hidden Valley. We gradually lost contact over the years. We have a great picture of him and my wife standing on a high mountain ridge overlooking Selby Lake. If you are interested I can send a copy.
