My latest book, a collection of stories entitled INTIMATE DIALOGUES, is being released very shortly.
Several of the stories appearing in this collection have been previously published by online magazines. I’ll be posting some of them, so if you enjoy what you read, you might be tempted to order the whole collection (whether as printed book or ebook).
This one is the story that kickstarted the idea for the collection, which goes some years back (I’ll speak of this in the next blog posting).

More news on this book very soon. Thanks for dropping by, Vincent

I mentioned recently my next book to see the light of life is Intimate Dialogues. Here’s the blurb I’m using to explain what readers can expect (a unavoidable commercial necessity).
Stories of people in confidential conversations. Dialogues between couples, whether two males, two females, male/female, old/young, couples, strangers, people and TVs or two dogs. On love, loss, hope, impropriety, friendship, death, anger, joy. Some are humorous, some fierce, most emotionally resonant. The talks occur in bars, in living rooms, in hospital waiting rooms, on building ledges, dentist chairs, therapists’ rooms, rest homes, usually face to face, rarely on phones. Always intimate.

I found myself by some ancient trees standing next to a cold waterfall. Someone had melted animal fat all over my feet. The word discovery had been penned on my right palm. In blue ink. I moved an inch and felt the swift movement of a tail behind me, something attached, and this was wholly new to me. On my left palm there was no writing. I returned slowly to my original inch. A violative vessel appeared from beneath the waterfall, many fierce black ancient muscled beasts thrusting from the bow, primed to gnaw. Elegant waves were raised up in the water by the emergent prow. These waves undulated toward me who stood on the shore fixed and immobile except for the occasional imprudent inch of movement. The vessel’s size increased as more of it emerged from the heavy never-ending fall of water. The waves it had created in the distance now finally reached the shore where I stood. They lapped up over the land, heading for my feet covered in animal fat. Hungry, acidic waves. I ran away not an inch.

Promises made, promises kept.
I worked with graphic artist/cartoonist Jean-Louis Lejeune, who took my ideas about nice babies (being ridiculously good) and created a series of illustrations of these various ideas that can fit on t-shirts and fabrics and accessories. hidden people calls them “Polite Babies”.
These are babies who are very polite – to one another, their parents, themselves. They are comic, fun.
I put together a short video telling what they are like, how to get them, how to make your very own t-shirts just as you want (or want to give to a young ‘un you know). That’s it. For yourself, a kid, a friend, relatives….

Happy Polite Baby Days.

A while back I told about how I had been working with a number of designers on designs for a line of fabrics (T-shirts stuff, really).
The series for this Christmas is nearly ready and they are called the “Polite Babies” series.
Here’s a few more samples you can expect
Where you can order them coming soon, real soon. — Thanks! V+
