Thanks for visiting! Welcome! For those of you who don't know me personally, my name is Wade Cox (just like it says at the top of the page!) I am pleased that you landed here, and hope you find the writing to your satisfaction. I write fiction stories of all kinds, dealing with just about any subject. With a variety of offerings to choose from, I hope this small sampling of my work will leave you wanting more. Look around our website and if you have any comments or questions, please feel free to contact me.
9/2/2015 So, I let this slide again. I've been a little bit unmotivated lately. Finally got the script ready for my movie trailer. I mentioned that I was working on writing a movie called NOVA ROAD. That is the film that this trailer will be for. The plan is to shoot and edit the trailer and get it ready, then put it up on Kickstarter to raise money for the actual film. Here's what the film is about: 3 friends fought in the war of independence to sever the colony of Mars from its earthly shackles. Now they're trained, skilled, and out of work. Being morally ambiguous, they decide to get into running the latest party drug to clubs on Mars. This drug, Super Nova, has been legal since its creation until just this year. I plan to explore themes in this story like marijuana legalization, and the atrocious treatment of our returning veterans. 7/3/2015 I've been trying to maintain, lately, and unfortunately, letting my writing slide. I am currently working on a few projects. Among them: HUB OF THE AMERICAS, the sequel to CARIBBEAN DANGER. Look for it to be out later this year. Also working on a script about drug dealers in the future, called NOVA ROAD. It is part action-adventure, part social commentary on the legalization of marijuana question. There is a short story book I'm compiling called BACK IN THE DAY: THE PENNY DREADFUL CHRONICLES. Hopefully, it will be out by the end of the year. Also giving some consideration to entering the 48-hour film contest in Orlando, FL. The contest takes place in August, but I am trying to put a team together now. 5/29/2015 It appears that my short film directing debut, ONE GOOD TURN, will finally be coming out of post-production hell. For those of you not in the know, post-production is where all the editing and addition of sound effects takes place. We finished filming it quite some time ago, and it has languished in hell for a year and a half, due to various problems, but it appears that now, it will be ready for the festival circuit. I have found a festival to send it to, and will be sending it off soon. Still have heard nothing from the agent that requested the script for my television series. 4/25/2015 Ok, sometime early last week, the server had a stroke and wouldn't let me log on to update the site, so now I'm here. Here goes. I told you about the deal with the pitching site. I heard from the one who asked me about my television script. He said that he has been swamped with work, and hasn't had time to read my script, but that yes, he did get it. Apparently, this is how things are done in Hollyweird. I'll just have to wait some more. That's ok, I can write the next few episodes while I wait. You won't have to wait for a new story, however. I am publishing a new short story in serial format (several small pieces at semi-regular intervals). The first one, I'll put up tonight. It is a steampunk story called AIRSHIP: DUCHESS II. 4/4/2015 So, my announcement back in January of the sold script was premature, and the deal fell through. Last week, I bought the opportunity to pitch my script with a Hollywood producer. I won't bore you with the details, but it was a disaster. After that, I bought some more opportunities with a site called Virtual Pitchfest, and proceeded to use several of them already. The great news is that 2 of the people I wrote my query letters to have answered me so far, and one of them wants to read the script! I sent it off today, so they'll probably read it over the weekend and get back to me next week. 1/12/2015 I hope everyone has had a great New Year. Mine didn't start off so great, but has gotten better. I spent midnight NYE doing dishes in a restaurant. The good news is that I finally sold a script! Due to confidentiality agreements, there's a lot I can't really say about things right now, but it is for a western. I have several episodes planned out, and am trying to make this a TV series. That has really consumed my time lately, so not much to report on other fronts. 11/27/2014 Happy Thanksgiving to everybody! May God Bless you all and your families and friends. There has been a big change recently. I could not get going in Texas, and was just spinning my wheels, so I have decided to leave Texas behind for now. I may go back in the future. Because of the move, and the job situation, and Thanksgiving, and some other factors, I have dropped out of NaNoWriMo, but am still writing the book, just at my own pace now. My laptop has a virus, so I'm not using it now, instead using a friend's computer. 11/9/2014 I have been quite busy lately. We are still in pre-production on the scene that I wrote for my San Antonio film group. I have been working on a novel for this year's NaNoWriMo. For those that aren't in the know, NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month, and takes place every November. It is a competition in which writers (or aspiring writers) are challenged to produce a 50,000 word work in the span of a month. Writers are not competing against each other, rather, helping and motivating each other. Check out the competition at www.nanowrimo.org or check out my sample on my Novels page. 10/12/2014 My film Zombros was quite a success. We got the word out, many have seen it, and it is enjoying quite the following on YouTube. I just got the clearance to start working on a script for Zombros 2. If you have not see the original Zombros, you can check out the trailer on my Film Works page, and the full movie is available for free on YouTube. It is 9 1/2 minutes long, so give it a look. Since I am starting to develop a script, I want to know, what do you want/not want to see in a zombie comedy? Obviously, there is a lot to get together, I'm just starting to work on it, so I'm very open to suggestion. 10/07/2014 Ok, so we decided to lay down BLACK AND WHITE for a while and work on some fundamentals to get used to working with each other first. I wrote a short 2-page scene, not a whole story, for us to work on. We went over the script tonight and are meeting at the location on Thursday to do a site survey and block out the shots. I've gained a few new readers today. I talked with a young lady in New Mexico about my writing, and she bought 4 books from me as gifts. Still working on my series GEARS AND FEARS. I had originally planned it as a web series, with each episode in the 20-minute range. I have since changed my mind and want to make this a 1-hour show to sell to a network. 9/17/2014 I have joined a filmmaking group here in San Antonio. We are working on our first project (yes, the group is brand new!) The piece for this group is tentatively called BLACK AND WHITE PICKUP AND DELIVERY. I am also still writing a piece on my own for a webseries of my own creation called GEARS & FEARS. It is a steampunk webseries. The book signings went well. Actually, they were my most successful to date, selling more than I'd hoped. I sold both BOOTLEG SPIRITS and CARIBBEAN DANGER. I may be lining some more up in the near future.
