I have to be the worst blogger in America. I'm now shamelessly promoting my new ebook, Helios. It's a collection of short stories, essays and more. Free samples available (and below). Download and enjoy. https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/153394.
Thirty years from now a man will enter St. Vincent's Church late at night. It will be freezing cold outside, dark and windy. It will be two days before Halloween and black as midnight. Candles will light up the church. A few steadfast believers will sit in the first two pews praying and sliding their wrinkled fingers over black rosary beads. Fallen leaves of orange and yellow will sneak into the vestibule.
This man, his face haggard, will walk into the confessional and quietly close the door behind him. He will be tired, his clothes wrinkled. Several minutes will pass until that assistant pastor, now a middle-aged priest, balding and thin, will enter the adjoining room on the other side of the black iron screen, likewise quietly closing the door behind him.
The man will fidget a little. He will clear his throat several times. He will quietly rub his hands together. He will think. When he finally catches his breath and calms down, he will whisper, "Bless me, father, for I have sinned." His voice will be deep. He will taste bitterness in his mouth. He will feel a chill on his neck. He will hold his hands tightly together, staring at a nasty scar on his left hand. The scar will be old and puffy. Then slowly, the man will stop fidgeting.

I've returned from the City of Angels after successfully meeting with a few people and discussing Cicero. I'm really excited about the prospects. In the meantime I've started a new screenplay about four bureaucrats in DC. It's going to be hilarious. Stay tuned...

The next installment from Che Parker is the movie Cicero, written by me, of course. Cicero is based on my first novel The Tragic Flaw. There are lots of new scenes and new characters and the movie is sure to be a number one smash. Right now plans are for a trilogy. Hope you all like the trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=prMb84hgtuA
