Now that I've had a week or so to sort things out, it is my plan to post a new message every Saturday. There are many questions, and a lot of them overlap. So I'll try to answer them in some sort of categorical way. As we move along I'll probably modify and improve. But here we go: What's ahead? At the moment Blue Screen (Sunny Randall) is the most recent book. In October will come Hundred Dollar Baby (Spenser), in the Spring will appear a Young Adult novel called The Edenville Owls (my first try at this), and in the fall of 07 will come Jesse Stone again (High Profile). We start shooting the next Jesse Stone movie, Seachase (Tom Selleck as Jesse), this October, and it will be on CBS sometime duringthe 06/07 season. When I know, I'll tell you. Incidentally I think Tom has absolutely nailed the role. Ed Harris is developing my western novel, Appaloosa for a feature film. He plans to star (as Virgil Cole) and to direct. So far he has Viggo Mortenson attached (Everett Hitch) and Diane Lane (Allie). I'm very pleased with the casting choices, and have a lot of confidence that Harris will get the movie made (as you may know, most movies don't get made). He should be wonderful in the role. I've seen the script and it seems flawless. Stay tuned.

Our thanks to Sachie who has come up with yet another background video on Alatriste...this one focuses on costuming and sombreros. And, of course, we thank the wonderful paddy for a translation.
Here is the video from Telecinco. You must scroll down to Video: algunos detalles del vestuario
Francesca has made some fantastic costumes,very, very Italo-Spanish; she has avoided the combinations of flashy colours, which didn't exist in Spain; she had a fantastic crew, she was an impressive perfectionist and she had an extraordinary good taste.The only thing I asked her for was that the girls had different tones/shades and so on. For cinema, the Spanish had a good thing, which is that they wore black (clothes), that always looks great in cinema. Alatriste's hat is a period hat, and Viggo is very meticulous so it took us a long time to find the right hat but we finally did, that is, she made it several times and it turned out well. She worked very hard on the hats... she grabs it, takes it, she works on it, this and that, she puts it on (someone's head) and it looks fantastic. For me the costumes this woman has made are extraordinary.
