To My Readers:
A lot is going on between the MEG MOVIE, the upcoming release of MEG: NIGHTSTALKERS, and a special ET double-feature planned for Fall. Plus I've included the winners of the MEG 6 character contest (tentatively titled MEG: GENERATIONS) and lots more. 
If you missed the BIG announcement, Jason Statham has signed on to play Jonas Taylor in the MEG MOVIE! With a long resume of action pics, Jason is the perfect combination of brains and brawn, and I couldn't be happier with his selection.

A lot will be happening over the next few months (see below) plus I'm offering my readers a very special opportunity to be a character in my February release, entitled UNACKNOWLEDGED. The contest is for a great cause AND will give my devoted MEGheads a chance to collect all of the 1st edition MEG hardbacks SIGNED.

Jason Statham IS Jonas Taylor!
Everyone loves a killer shark movie, from serious thrillers like Jaws, to goofy (but financially successful) b-movies like the Sharknado series. One film that has been in development for a very long time is the adaptation of MEG: A Novel of Deep Terror by author Steve Alten.

Recipe of the Month: Fried Cornbread by Rick Magers
1. Fry a pound of sausage, careful not to over-cook...keep chopping it until you have a skillet full of chunks about the size of a common marble. Put it in a colander and let the hog fat drain off of the meat. (I use Jimmy Dean because the fat content is low.)

2. Put the sausage into a Ziploc and keep it in the freezer to use as fried cornbread OR creamed sausage over biscuits. (I make 3 pounds of cooked crumbled sausage to be available when a Confederate Soldier drops by for a visit.)

3. Make a batch of cornbread and let it age for at least 2 days.

4. Heat a skillet that you can be a bit rough with, or a Teflon one you can use a Teflon spatula in, and add a cup of water. (I prefer black iron skillets and a stainless spatula)

5. Keep scraping the bottom and turning the cornbread...DO NOT let it burn.

6. Halfway thru cooking the cornbread, add however much crumbled sausage you have thawed, and keep folding the two together. Add water and stir the mix over medium heat, and keep cooking and turning until it has consistency that you can easily remove slabs to place on a plate.

7. Put 2 over easy or sunny-side-up eggs on top.
