Posted in News with tags on January 21, 2014 by webmasternemi

Pike shared this preview of the first chapter for The Sixth Door, an upcoming ADULT novel that may also make it’s way to TV.

 

THE SIXTH DOOR

CHAPTER ONE

You might have seen me, I get around. The name of the city does not matter to me. When I arrive in a town, I usually go for a long walk, night or day, and pretty soon I’m talking to someone. Whoever it is, they always have the same problems. No money, no sex, and never enough love. I try to help them, not just with talk, but with a few tricks I’ve learned over the years. And more often than not I am able to satisfy their needs. But they seldom thank me afterwards, not when our business is finished. That doesn’t bother me, though. I just pack up my things, buy a bus ticket, and move on. It is all the same to me. Continue reading

Strange Girl

Pike shared the first chapter of a new work through social media this holiday season. The book is called “Strange Girl”.

CHAPTER ONE

I still get asked what Aja was like, where she came from, what it was like to be her friend, to actually date her, whether the stories about her were true, and who — or what — I really thought she was. 
The last question usually makes me smile, a little, probably because I understand it’s hard to talk about her without sounding like a nut. But that’s what I try to tell people who want to know about her. She was a mystery, a genuine enigma, in a world that seldom believes in such things, and now that she’s gone, I think that’s what she’ll always be.
At least to those who loved her.

Pike Talk: Hollywod, The Listeners & The Cold One

PIKE here: Sorry I haven’t checked in lately. After finishing the first draft of Witch World II, I got caught up in family issues in L.A. that I didn’t expect. I left Santa Barbara for a few days and only just returned. For that reason, I have yet to send out the last eight copies of Witch World that I’ve signed. For those of you who have all but given up hope, they are coming.
It’s exciting to see Spooksville actually being shot. Hollywood truly is a brutal town. Literally dozens of times I’ve had projects all set to go into production but something would always happen. It’s strange to think back to when I first published Remember Me. The whole town wanted to make a movie of the book. Then it came out that the Demi Moore film “Ghost” was in pre-production. Over the years various agents have told me if Remember Me had happened at the start, Hollywood would have made two dozen films of my books by now.
Yet, ironically, I’m not sure if it was bad luck. I do believe things happen for a reason. Fall Into Darkness was a success as a Movie of the Week, and the network wanted to do Chain Letter next, followed by several other titles. But when I saw how terrible Fall Into Darkness was, I went through a decade where I simply couldn’t sign away any rights to my books.
Maybe I overreacted, I don’t know.
