Armegeddon for Shape Shifting Cockroaches

The deals are out there and apparently, the more bizarre your story, the better. My next story is going to involve shape shifting cockroaches on the path to Armegeddon.

Forget the plot construction, the layers, the play on words, the careful arrangement of phrases in the novel I'm working on. As the cockroaches grow in numbers, they can not be stopped. Their path of destruction threatens the entire planet (and Mars too before it's all over).

The world of diamond smuggling plays into my novel currently in progress. I though it was exciting until I read about some of the book deals out there today.

Umm, so how do the cockroaches get to Mars? Form a "cockroach chain"?

Yup, you are a Bunion.

Can the cockroaches be diamond smugglers? Wer-cockroach vampire diamond smugglers? With names like Brandy and Muffin?

And actually, Sharon? I'd read the Cockroach Armageddon story you just described, just to see if you could pull it off.

M.G.--- I can't pull it off. Maybe if they were termites. Vampire termites. Vampire termites tunneling through to banks, determined to take over the world and....

Pink diamonds being smuggled through termite tunnels by shape shifting insects who are pursued by vampires. It's all in my next novel, The Subway to Hell.

Ahh, very high concept indeed. Hollywood would surely be all over that--with Julia Roberts as the voice off the cockroach queen.
