continued National attention for a North Country murder story is not totally new for Bloated Toe. Just a week before the call for NBC, Gooley and Jones received a call, again unsolicited, from a California production company who was interested in Gooley’s 2009 “Terror in the Adirondacks: The True Story of Serial Killer Robert F. Garrow.” They are in talks to turn Terror in the Adirondacks into a movie.
“This all came to us,” said Gooley. “We should be out getting a TV network or a movie, and we’re not. These are coming to us.”
Gooley is hopeful that this project comes together as well, but warns that movies are a much lengthier and tenuous prospect than a television feature.
“Whenever we get something like this we sort of make note of it, put it aside, and keep working.”
Working for Gooley is writing and publishing, and he doesn’t plan on slowing down regardless of how much attention his stories are garnering. Bloated Toe has just published “Killing in the Kuyahoora Valley,” and Gooley is currently working on another compilation of North Country murders.
Photos from Gooley and Jones’ trip to Manhattan can be found at the Bloated Toe Publishing Facebook site, and books from Gooley and numerous other North Country authors represented by Bloated Toe Publishing are available at www.bloatedtoe.com.
If it bleeds it leads...and it’s leading Gooley and Jones well past the confines of the North Country literary scene.
