Lexia Snowe News

The latest advances in Lexia Snowe screenwriting, fiction and filmmaking.

Lex, a professional photographer in her heyday, has been snapping away again over summer, and intends to publish highlights online in a new website dedicated to her photography. The new site will launch sometime in the fall, and updates on its development will be posted here.
Recognizing she is no longer familiar with the novel's original setting of London, England, Lex has decided to relocate her long-gestating novel CLIMBING SCRAPYARDS to Los Angeles. This decision has immediately helped with a few knots in the story, and streamlined some of the character backgrounds.

Lex will be revising the manuscript in parallel with all her other projects, including her genre novel REDONDO, so a conservative completion date is late 2016. The novel's website ClimbingScrapyards.com , is scheduled to be converted to a responsive design (mobile friendly) in the near future. It will simultaneously be updated to the new setting, complete with L.A. photography by Lexia Snowe.
To follow books by Lexia Snowe, including Honeycomb, her collection of poetry and short stories about love, check out the freshly launched mini-site about her literary projects, Lexia Snowe Books . Publication dates and news about projects will be posted to the site in the future.
