Veil's Visit

Reading Veil's Visit, a short story that my brother Andrew Vachss and I wrote about my characters Hap and Leonard, and his character Veil. Veil also appears in CAPTAINS OUTRAGEOUS. I'm reading a bit of it at a time and will post it on my site a bit each day, or if you have an interest you can download it all. Should be finished soon, but I haven't had a chance to go at it regularly. My daughter is helping me film it. So, soon...
Kasey has a new site,, and I recommend you look it over. It should be growing shortly. She has a songwriting contract in Nashville, and we're hoping for an artist contract in the near future.
DEVIL RED, the new Hap and Leonard novel is closing in on a third done, and I'm pretty happy with it. Changes for everyone in this one, and you might even call this one a private detective novel as Hap and Leonard go to work for Marvin Hanson who has opened an agency. They won't work for him in every book, but from time to time I thought it would be a fun way to go.
Off to Las Vegas wednesday for KILLERCON. Kare and I arrive Wednesday evening, and Kasey and her husband Adam are showing up Friday. Kasey is actually performing Friday somewhere in Vegas, the spot being on her site if you're out that way or know someone who is.
Anyway, should be fun. Kasey and Adam are both on panels. My son-in-law is one of my martial arts students and he'll be on a panel for martial arts. Kasey is on a marketing panel.
As for the cop in Nebraska, I thought of writing a letter about his unprofessional behaviour, but they would just think I was complaining. If they have a camera on his car they can see what an idiot he is, however. May he grow like an onion with his head in the ground.
So, enough for now, and I'm off.
