Drillbooks – Behind The Scenes

Since publishing Shadow of the Drill, I’ve been asked many times about the Toybox, which is the strip club that Decker and Rudy co-own. Is it real? If so, where is it? Do the drinks really cost THAT much?

The Toybox, as it exists in my books, is fictional. When I first moved to Oklahoma City, many years ago, my then-boyfriend introduced me to a little store called the Adult Toybox. It carried numerous items, such as X-rated videos, lingerie, lotions and toys. Today, stores like this are everywhere, but 30 years ago, the Adult Toybox was unique. 

I’m not sure why I chose the Toybox  as the name of Rudy’s club. Maybe it was nostalgia, I really don’t know. 

As for the club itself, it’s basically a hybrid of a couple of different places. The building itself, and the interior layout, came from one of my favorite bars in Tacoma, the 24th Street Tavern. I also used the 24th Street as the setting for my short story, A Perilous Thirst. It’s been gone a long time now, but I can still see it as clearly as the last time I walked through its doors.

The way that the girls make their money at the Toybox came from the clubs I danced in when I was in Oklahoma City. We sold “dancer’s drinks” to our customers and then received a percentage of the amount sold. The percentage varied depending on whether we were being paid a straight commission or if we were also getting a salary. A salary was nice security, but we made a heck of a lot more money if we just took commission.

At the club I danced at most often back then, a dancer’s drink was $7.50 for the smallest one, and then increased in price depending on the size of the glass. Most of the clubs had a similar range of  glasses for the girls, starting at about $7, and going up in price to what we called the fish bowls. Those things were fairly large, and it was quite common to see the smaller one go for $300, while the larger one went for $500 and up. Our drinks did contain alcohol, so you can imagine how toasty we were by the end of our shift. 

There were two kinds of clubs in those days: beer bars and bottle bars. A beer bar only sold beer and wine, and the age to enter was 18. It was illegal to sell beer past midnight, except on Saturday nights, so the beer bars had to shut down by 12. 

Bottle bars, on the other hand, had pretty much everything. They served the over 21 crowd, and stayed open until 2. However, they had to stop selling beer at midnight, except on Saturdays. It was legal to buy several bottles of beer before 12 and drink them after, but the bar couldn’t sell them. Makes no sense to me. Also, it was illegal for a bottle bar to sell hard alcohol. Regular customers brought their own bottle of booze with their name on it, and it was kept behind the bar. They then purchased overpriced mixer, and their own alcohol was poured in. If a customer visited from out of town/state, and didn’t have his own bottle, he could purchase a dancer’s drink for the girl he was sitting with, and she would “give” him a shot from her bottle. This was also legal, though I’m not sure why since the point of a bottle bar was so that liquor control could match every bottle on the customer shelf with a person sitting at a table. But Oklahoma drinking laws were strange in the early 80s, and I gave up trying to understand them.
So now you know a little bit about how the Toybox came to be. A blend of fact and fiction, it’s become very close to my heart. I’ll give you a bit of a spoiler here: there will come a day when circumstances will most likely force the closure of the Toybox. I don’t know exactly when this will happen, but I’m going to be very sad when it does.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this peek behind the curtain of the Drill series. And remember, if you can identify one or both of these men (who have been my inspiration for Decker) please email their name(s) to me at rhanidchae@gmail.com and you could win a $10 Amazon gift card.

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit my blog. I hope to see you again, next time.

Drillbooks – Behind the Scenes

As some of you know, I’ve been dealing with a severe case of writer’s block for the past year or so. This has prevented the completion of the next novel in the Drill series, Winter of the Drill. I’m now settling in at my laptop for the last leg of this journey, and it will be finished this time, one way or another.

I thought it might help me to reconnect with Decker and the gang if I did a few blog posts that gave you an inside look at some of the characters and events nestled between the covers of #Winter.  If you read and enjoyed Shadow of the Drill, you might find these posts interesting. If not, hopefully this little series won’t bore you too much.

I thought I would start by telling you a little bit about the character of Decker, the title character in the Drill series, and how he came to be. 

When I started writing #Shadow, I knew almost everything about Decker before I first put my fingers to the keyboard. Because he was a composite of a couple of the street enforcers I’d known in my youth, I had to create a single image of what he looked like. Not a problem, I thought. I already knew that he was somewhere in the vicinity of six and a half feet tall. I knew that he was Italian on his father’s side, and that his mother was European. I knew how old he was, how much he weighed, and what his body looked like. I could even hear his voice. The only thing I couldn’t see was his face. And without a face, it was pretty hard to bring life to the man.

Then one day a movie came out that starred one of my favorite actors. My seeing eye son and I had both been looking forward to it, so we went. There was an actor with a fairly large supporting role in the film who caught my eye almost immediately. I’d never seen him before, but he did make an impression. 

Then, at one point in the film, it happened. The camera caught him in just the right way, and I realized I was looking at Decker. From that moment on, he existed for me in no way other than as the Drill. I went home and began to write.

Bringing Decker to life was suddenly so much easier for me. And if writer’s block reared its ugly head, I went back to the movies. I saw that film almost 40 times in the theater. Then it came out on cable, so I was able to watch it at home. THEN it was available on DVD so I grabbed my copy, ran home, and begin the first of countless viewings. The image of Decker was now complete in my mind, and for the first time, he was fully alive to me. 

Here is a picture of that actor. Do you recognize him? If you do, please email his name to me at rhanidchae@gmail.com. I’ll draw a name from those who have answered correctly, and that person will receive a $10 Amazon gift card.

Many years have passed since #Shadow was originally written. Almost 20, in fact. A few years ago, I rewrote the book and published it on Amazon. But as I began working on the following books in the Drill series, I realized that a different actor had taken center stage in the Decker part of my brain. Now, when I write him, this is who I see. The eyes are wrong, of course, but I’ve been living with Decker’s eyes for so long that I automatically see them now.

This man is much easier to recognize, and if you do, please email his name to me, because I’ll be giving away a second Amazon card.

So now you know a little bit about the men who gave Decker life, and lit the fire behind the ice-blue eyes. 

I hope you’ve enjoyed this post, and I hope you will join me for the next one. I don’t know who I’ll be talking about yet, so I guess that will be a surprise to us both. Thanks for stopping by today, and I hope to see you next time.

KRAB KAPER

Short fiction, Fantasy Patch characters

By Stephen Geez

Some lettuce just leaves a bad taste.

I don’t know why, but this critter won’t eat the stuff, instead preferring collards and other greens.

So imagine warm light, cool breeze, a splash of gurgling water, eight explorable square feet, one climbing ladder of latticed sticks, a thatch of tasty greens beckoning from above, and our hero methodically clawing his way upward for all he’s worth—which is normally about five bucks, free if you simply pick him up, as Taj did.

It’s a hermit crab, about the size of a jawbreaker, the landlubber version found in tropical beach-side brush.  This crab and its three crabby cohorts hail from Gulfcoast Florida, having hitched back to Chicago in a sack of shells collected by the four-year-old son of my youngest producer.  I normally frown on taking souvenirs from sites above water and below, these being nature’s mobile homes for myriad denizens wet or dry, but young Taj didn’t know better, so no major harm.

I help him and three other kids, all now dedicated hermit-crab owners, as they outfit a large terrarium in the day-care area of our video-production facility.  Dabbing quick-clean non-toxic paint, each decorates his crab’s shell for easy identification, this despite my warning that these critters often change houses for better fit and to runway-strut the latest in chic crab style.

We provide a small plate of corn meal, little-bit fruit bites, and other crabby snacks; but for some reason the one now climbing after the greens always decides to pass when it’s offered mere iceberg.

Apparently, some lettuce just leaves a bad taste.

So we’re watching the crabs one day when my friend/client Flynn Durbett stops by with a sackful of test products designed for kid safety and/or fun learning.  Flynn’s the soldier-of-fortune character first introduced in Stephen Geez’s novel Invigilator, way back before he settled down a bit and founded a company dedicated to helping people protect themselves from a dangerous world. He needs some marketing hooks, packaging, design—anything I might contribute as his agency-of-record creative director.  My name is Danté Roenik, but Flynn’s been occasionally calling me “The Image Maker”—ever since I deigned to narrate Stephen Geez’s novel Fantasy Patch, the tale of my infamous tilting at pharmaceutical-conglomerate windmills. Yikes! Turns out windmills are quite willing to shred anybody who dares get in their way.

Flynn shows me a sort of child’s poncho boasting swirls of fabric stitched to hold pocketfuls of kid-stuff—tearaways for safety, elastic gathers to avoid strangle-strings—all topped by a nifty hood with sewn-in sweatband crafted such that side panels pull away to ensure full peripheral vision when young street-crossing bike-riding skater-boarders turn their heads to look both ways.  Flynn has inked a distribution deal with a chain of big-box stores, a test-market roll-out in the Chicago ’burbs, but the product needs a name, a hook, and some cool images laser-screened on the front and back.

Big-eyed Taj dons the smallest in Flynn’s Santa-sack, and I’m instantly reminded of a hermit crab, the swirling shell, this spiky-haired lad peering out from under the hood, his expression that sneaky escapade-plotting look of appraisal often found on little kids and littler crabs.

I notice the real crab has reached his goal, now perched atop the ladder, contentedly munching his greens as I paint an art-deco shell design onto one of Flynn’s pullovers.  The kids all want them, but each prefers to paint his or her own design.

And there’s Flynn’s hook: “KrabbShells,” pre-screened as a plain hermit shell, each including a small set of disposable fabric markers so pint-sized fashion plates can customize unique looks—or visit Flynn’s company website for ideas and templates, a safe place to share photos of their own and to admire the works of other young artists.

Next we paw through Flynn’s collection of new products.  I’m intrigued by a tiny ball with a slot that reveals a mini-light and magnifying glass with tiny tweezer and gripper.  They prove especially handy for examining real crabs up close and personal.  We all want one.

Flynn trundles off to meet with the big-boxers.  They’re lucky to be working with such a good man who values loyalty and integrity, one who looks out for others and the world we share—unless you cross him or try to hurt a friend, but that’s a longer story, actually two, both attractively priced in print or multiple ebook formats.

So KrabbShells sales rapidly climb that ladder for the big-box stores, and Flynn’s company feeds on the green, but we’re not in control of the promotion, and Flynn’s contract doesn’t confer veto power over the unacceptable: our retailer starts offering one free hermit crab with every KrabbShells sale.

I do encourage responsible pet ownership for young people to learn about caring for others.  Hermit crabs aren’t endangered, and they’re certainly not dangerous, but I have a pet-store-chain client who rightly rails against such indiscriminate pet-mongering.  Buy a hermit from one of her outlets and you’re not getting out the door without the proper habitat, supplies, how-to pamphlet, and a thorough conversation.  Living creatures are not toy prizes; they should be entrusted only to those who truly want them and will properly care for them.

The big-box buyers dismiss Flynn’s objections, opting instead to enforce their contract in lieu of maintaining good faith between retailer and supplier.  We’re all angry about this, including the kids and their chums, most of whom want to voice their outrage.  After some serious hand-wringing over where to draw the line between exploiting young’ns and nurturing their burgeoning need to self-express, I do what people so often pay me a lot of green to do: I orchestrate one bodacious media spectacle, nationwide coverage, a public-relations cesspool to mire the mid-city big-box headquarters of these crass exploiters of innocent crabs.

So picture this: more than two-dozen subtly supervised teenies and tweenies dressed as hermit crabs, their hand-painted KrabbShells emblazoned with “Kidz for Krabs,” a crusading cadre marching sideways in the cutest camera-calling crabwalk you could ever imagine. These irate squeaky-voiced orators are delivering little-bit sound bites for sympathetically amused on-the-scene TV reporters, crowds gathering to gawk and chant, our urban beach awash in a growing tidal wave of righteous indignation.

In a surprising move, egregiously unprofitable for successful builders of bigger boxes, our adversaries opt out rather than address the problem, apparently preferring to retreat into their shells to avoid fostering an image of cavers-in to special-interest pressure.

So Flynn gets his product back, then re-launches with a smaller big-box that’s been angling to out-box the bigger big-boxers.  Cranking up the Danté publicity machine proves a cakewalk—a crabwalk, as it were—after the impromptu kid-protest already raised awareness about the irresponsible, um, spreading of crabs.

Besides, offering free KrabbShell handhelds that open to reveal a tiny light, magnifier, and tweezer/gripper crab pincers starts piling some serious green on Flynn’s plate.

Taj’s crustaceous little friend promptly moves himself into a bigger, more stylish shell, and the young’ns all learn about making planet-friendly choices when their own careers someday find them climbing that ladder in the age-old quest for a little bit of green.

It’s a lesson fit for a sound-bite:

Some lettuce just leaves a bad taste.

#RRBC DAY 29 CONGRATULATIONS @nonniejules & @AskTheGoodMommy – “DOES MY LIFE MATTER”

Please take a few minutes to read this contribution from Rave Reviews Book Club Founder and president, Nonnie Jules. 😃

Our Lady of Victory Remembered!

Because of the division that’s going on in our world right now, the hate that’s being stirred up and spewed by these White Supremacist groups, we felt it appropriate and extremely necessary that we share a piece from our President, Nonnie Jules, that needs to be wide-spread.

“DOES MY LIFE MATTER?”

 

I am a black woman, and because of the shade of my skin and coarseness of my hair, because of the fullness of my hips, my lips and the bold colors I wear…some don’t find me as attractive as my fairer counterparts.  You see, I’m no longer your house-maid or here for your sexual pleasure; no longer Mamie to your children, I’m now someone’s Mother…a treasure.  But, does my life matter?

 

I am a black man, and because of my dark skin and the boldness of my stance, because of the kinky in my…

You Take the Blue Pill, the Story Ends. You Take the Red Pill …

by Linda Mims

 

I was sixteen when I first suspected that I might be the one. I’d seen people in my family striving for excellence all my life. My parents’ friends were creative types who often took time to quiz me about my goals and what I was doing to achieve them. I had been persistently pleading with a leader at my church who had the power to make one of my goals a reality.

This woman headed the Womens’ Ministry. Everything from church…

Guilt, Shame and Fear

by Stephanie Collins

 

“I can’t stand the feeling of being out of control, so I’ve never had any interest in trying drugs or alcohol,” I mused.

“You sure seemed to have an interest when you were younger,” Dad informed me. He responded to my perplexed look before I had a chance to deny his claim. “What? You don’t remember trying pot? Let’s see. It was about 1975. That would have made you five, right? I remember it like it was yesterday. It was a summer afternoon. I walked into the living room and found…

A Gift of Silence

By Joan C. Curtis

The man stood outside the store window, shifting from foot to foot. I’d have probably gone right by him, but as I passed, he looked me straight in the face, sending a chill up my back. Mystified, I found a place in the shadows and watched.

He wore a black golf shirt with a Nike swoosh. His black slacks were neatly pressed, but scuffs covered the…

Not having a good Monday at work, I decided to cut my day short and head home. Home, my sanctuary. As a single guy, I often retreat to my sanctuary when things become intolerable, such as today.

Pulling into the drive, I noticed the yard and house really needed attention. I kept the lawn mowed, but the knee-high weeds were another matter. The house too had long been neglected. The loose siding and trim…

Michael Hicks Thompson

 DETOUR à CUBA

 PART I

 Once the port-of-call jewel for Magnus Wealthy, Cuba has been a country lost in time for the last half century, plus some.

 Never been to Cuba? I recommend it. But do it before it returns to the playground of the filthy rich and the Hemingway admirers.

 Yes, I’ve been there twice. But not as Magnus Wealthy. Think short-term mission trip. Door-to-door evangelism. Knock, knock. “May we come in.” (Of course, my interpreter said it the proper way: “¿Podemos entrar?”)

 An interpreter is essential if you can’t speak the language.

 But here’s the beautiful thing. Most Cubans are the friendliest people you’ll meet. They love to meet and greet Americans. We’re a mystery to them. It’s amazing. And understandable. Most have never tasted freedom.

 Castro usurped the country in the biggest land swindle ever. Now, the elderly Cubans alive today are happy with a single, pathetic gift from Papa Castro’s government.

 “He give me this cooking pot,” the appreciative, sun-wrinkled, Spanish speaking octogenarian said.

 Never mind that his midget refrigerator will take him a lifetime to pay off.

 PART II

 We flew into Havana, via Mexico, spent the night and flew on to Holguin (hole-Keen) early the next morning. It’s a four-hour flight. Cuba is the size of California.

 The ‘hotel’ in Holguin was once a grand one—now, dilapidated. Papa not only didn’t let the government keep hotels up to standard, he took the toilet seats away. From personal experience, I can assure you he did it to humiliate the eleven-and-a-half-million souls into submission.

 Ask any American what Cubans look like and they’ll include “dark-skinned” as an answer. However, you’d be surprised to see nearly as many red-headed and blue-eyed Cubans as dark-skinned islanders. The Spanish influence is apparent. Fifty-one percent of Cubans are Mulatto, thirty-seven percent, White, and eleven percent, Black.

 All Cubans are proud. And friendly. Why shouldn’t they be? They’ve not had the outside world of communications and world events for three generations. They’ve simply missed the rise in socio-economic gain around the world. They’ve been isolated. They don’t know any other life. They’ve lived on Cuban baseball and communism since 1959.

 And they’ve avoided all the gun-shot TV news and television episodes of Law & Order. God blessed them.

 Or, did He?

 When I think of Cuba, I think of Maria. She’s the Lady who led our group through Cuba. Maria was born and raised in Havana, in a prominent family.

 Shortly after Castro took over, her father gathered his wife and children and fled to America.

 Maria has such a huge heart for her native land. She’ll always love her people and her land.

 Many wealthy families left their homes and their businesses behind; to start over. But the ones not able to afford travel remained behind. They faced the dark days of seclusion.

 Catholicism gradually faded away. To be replaced by many false religions—Santería being the most prominent. It’s a singing religion based on the old songs of slavery. So, most Santeríans are descendants of African slaves.

 PART III

 Every morning ten of us would have breakfast, pray, and pile into vans with our interpreters for an hour or two ride to a small village, usually to the south, near Guantanamo. A different village each morning. That way, we could avoid the immigration officials who’d heard we were proselytizing in their country. Only once did we hear our leader yell out, “Everybody in the vans. We have to leave. Now!”

 We would meet at a local house church and greet the pastor. Some would have no more than ten church members; some as many as thirty. We snuck in bibles, clothes, hygiene products, and boatloads of gum.

 Each church provided a local member to escort us, individually with our interpreter, to un-churched homes in the village. The patriarch or matriarch always welcomed us. Some even asked us to hold off any discussion so they could gather their family. Even neighbors. All ages would gather around in a small living room, many sitting on the floor, while we introduced them to original sin, Jesus, the Gospel, and a merciful God.

 The interpreter kept track of those who repeated the prayer of salvation (asking Jesus to come into their hearts and save them from eternal damnation). More than a few grown men cried on my shoulder after accepting Jesus into their hearts.

 Naturally, there were plenty who preferred to worship their idols. Ceramic statues, sometimes made of wood or plastic.

 If the idol worshiper wasn’t getting what they wanted from their man-made God, they’d place them face down in their underwear drawer, to punish them. Strange stuff. And sad.

 At the end of the week, our leader would give us the number. “Four-hundred-fifty-two made a profession of faith this week. You’ve not only sowed the seeds of the Gospel, you’ve been a part of the harvest.”

 That made me feel pretty good, but we all knew Holy Spirit had been working in those hearts long before we arrived. Only God can change the heart of man. But, what really made me warm and fuzzy, was the sight of my sons who’d been able to join us on the mission field. They had been part of the harvest. And it would have a lasting, lifetime effect on their lives. They talk about it to this day.

 And so do I.
