Last tease from Lilith…

Posted in Lilith, Uncategorized, Update with tags , , , , on September 29, 2011 by Kaden Brown

I suppose that this is the least favourite of the opening four chapters. Some passages have been changed. Some passages added, since this page was made. I’ve still got the bugs over it.

Chapter Four

Approaching the gray steel door to the Nephilim base in western Detroit sent a wave of weakness through me, just like every other time I’ve messed up. Which was once or twice. It looks like an abandoned house half hidden behind a grotty warehouse out front, overgrown by trees and unseen from the street.

Everything was quiet, even our breathing. Only the grass blowing in the cold wind made a sound. My nervousness shot up to a new high as I stepped onto the porch and turned the steel door handle.

Barry’s breathing could be heard behind, but my focus was on the hallway. Behind me was safe.

Here is the third of the four opening chapters of Lilith – A Dark Immortal Novel, currently being written.

Chapter Three

“Cheap sex Lilith,” B droned on with a sermon from his past, “ain’t gonna make you feel better in the long term.”

Sitting back in the big encompassing passenger seat as B smoothly guided the Lexus toward the north west of Detroit using the back streets I let his barbed comments go in one ear and out the other. He was probably jealous. Him preaching had almost been forgotten in the tumult of the last few months. It seemed the war with the Antediluvians was heating up. When stressed B gets preachy. I wiped my jaw with a forearm, half imagining that I could still feel the product of the quickie out back of the bar.

“State of Trance” screenplay opening scenes

Posted in Uncategorized, Update with tags , on September 19, 2011 by Kaden Brown

The opening scenes to this proposed violent psychological thriller can now be downloaded by clicking the link below:

State of Trance [Screenplay sample]

The poster (the girl sat on the roadside) matches the first scene whereby the platform for the rest of the movie is set. Incidently, there are a few themes here: (1) Do not drink and drive, (2) Do not smoke whilst driving – it can be dangerous, and (3) Do not wander onto the road in an incoherent state. Oh, plus, the lead male character is a lawyer… grrr. But really, the movie has no message except one I suppose: natural justice happens no matter what.

The tagline “Are you awake?” is intended to evoke a creepy feeling and fear of going to sleep or being otherwise unconscious. It is then that you can be possessed and enter the state of trance. When that happens serious problems can occur, affecting you and others for the rest of your life – typically not very long following a state of trance. “Are you awake?” is also the catch-phrase spoken by the possessing spirit as it enters the victim’s mind, asking him or her “Are you awake?” in a soft – almost a whisper – voice.

State of Trance – A “Vanguard Newborn” film, written by Kaden Brown

Are you awake?

Lawyer Michael Chisholm is drink-driving and causes a traffic accident, killing a young woman and seriously injuring himself. In hospital he is in an unresponsive state. During that time the spirit of the dead woman, Mandy, possesses his mind. He enters the state of trance. It is a terror he will never forget.

A battle of wills follows with Mandy finally convincing the lawyer to allow her to possess his whole body to investigate her husband’s  death. To Michael, assisting in the search for truth is about getting rid of the spirit and the torture.

Afterall, when Mandy is gone he can recover in peace. This is a shocking tale of gang violence, truth and vengeful justice as Michael endures.

You can vote to get this script turned into a real film by visiting Make My Movie.

First chapter of Lilith is here

Posted in Dee Dee, Lilith, Update with tags , , , , on September 19, 2011 by Kaden Brown

As a tease I thought to put the first chapters of Lilith on here for all and sundrie to read and comment on.

Today it is the first chapter… later ones will include chapters up to and including chapter four.

Also, don’t forget to vote in the MakeMyMovie competition where I have Dee Dee and the violent thriller (and hitherto secret project of mine) State of Trance up for public vote.

Vote for Dee Dee

Posted in Dee Dee with tags , , , on September 15, 2011 by Kaden Brown

The story of Dee Dee is written in a screenplay, which I introduced you to a few posts back. You can read the script here.

I would love her story to get told in film. Now you can vote for Dee Dee to actually get made into that film.

Make My Movie is running the competition and I need everyone to go to the site and vote… I included a bloody movie poster to get readers in the mood.

 

The more votes we get the greater the likelihood is that the film can get the corporate support and investment. Fingers crossed.

On we go with Lilith a Dark Immortal Novel

Posted in Lilith, Rhesus A - a Vanguard Newborn, Update with tags , , , , , , on September 11, 2011 by Kaden Brown

So, at-last Vanguard Newborn is finished and awaiting the copy edit. Hopefully I get some takers in the local area. Even if that doesn’t happen, I’m prepared to go as far as Australia or the US to get it done. Or, anywhere. Incidently, I have posted the dumped opening two chapters from VN that I really, really hate. Have a look if you want…but heed the poor content warning.

Lilith, a Dark Immortal Novel is underway again and though I’m not 100% happy with my writing I will sacrifice minor glitches for now, in favour of getting the story written. Then I can go back and fix the parts I am not happy with. If it ain’t written I can’t do a rewrite, can I?

So, I’m pretty happy.
