In the novel "The King of Diamonds," magician/pop singer Darin Diamond uses "NIGHT & DAY" as the basis of his world magic tour, with a huge set piece of the moon that burns into the sun.
Cole Porter's best song, ever. Little wonder Frank Sinatra recorded it throughout his career. My personal favorite is when the Old Man would do it with just the small group, letting Vinnie Falcone, and others, really shine.
If you click the photo of SONDRE LERCHE to the left, there's a beautiful little 'Night & Day' video clip, a reminder of why I love this guy so much.

As we begin to market "THE KING OF DIAMONDS: THE MAGICAL LIFE OF DARIN DIAMOND," I hope to send out copies to some magician friends and other performers I've "known" over the years.
If you can think of any groups, associations or other links, will you please let me know?

My novel, upon which a scrrenplay is being written, will be available online in early 2009.
I wrote this baby a while back and it's time it got a birthday.
While I have little to do with it from here on out (I'm hard at work, banging-out a new novel), I will have a promotional website:
www.thekingofdiamonds.me (I haven't gotten it up yet, but don't worry, it will be...)
The site will promote the novel, be home to other writing projects, and for you CHEAP BASTARDS who want to read my 'King Of Diamonds' for free, well, you'll be able to do that, there.

If you wanna see a COOL website, check-out the Sons of Anarchy on FX Network: www.fxnetworks.com (simply click-on Charlie's photo to the left)
The motorcycle odometer that flashes into a flaming skull was designed by a fine artist. And the show it promotes is every bit as good as anything on TV today. The writing is sensational.
The show stars CHARLIE HUNNAM, a mesmorizing young actor who has played so many diverse roles and who now plays a tough guy biker so well, that you never catch him acting.
Speaking of websites... we are fiddling-around with a promotional site for the book 'The King of Diamonds.'
(Coming soon to a computer screen near you)
