I am on a publishing roll! I released Dick the Demon yesterday. Full disclosure, I have not been writing these stories as fast as they’re appearing. I’ve been writing this series since February. Between picking covers, and editing, it takes some time for them to get to publication.
This story was a character study. I just wanted to get to know Dick a little better. This story did the trick. It was fun to write, and I got to put in something that freaks me out too. Clowns! *shudders* We won’t get into that.
Anyway, I got to peek inside Dick’s life. Do you want one too?
Dick could push the envelope a little bit. For example, last week there was a man petrified of clowns. Dick wasn’t allowed to have the torture consist only of scaring the man with clowns. He made sure that every aspect of the torture was carried out by someone dressed as a clown, or subtly giving a nod to clowns. He would have one torturer wearing clown shoes. Another would have the white face makeup and the sad face of the European clown. But only one, the final one, would be in full clown regalia.
The results were fantastic until the brass found out. Dick was ordered to go back to business as usual. They didn’t want anyone making a mockery of the torturers. Unbeknownst to the higher-ups, Dick’s employees had a great time. It even boosted office morale for the brief period that it took place.
