Those of you that have been keeping up with me throughout the years know that I write all over the spectrum. Pretty much any genre except romance. Why do I exclude romance, I dunno, just never been something I was any good at. Usually I end up cheesy and over the top. Even more over the top than a Hugh Grant movie or slipping into some strange deeply repressed misogynistic fantasy courtesy of far to much James Bond.
Anyway, Mission:Thanatos is a sci-fi television show set in Earth's future that follows the adventures of a captain and a crew as they struggle to expose a conspiracy that claimed the life of our dear captain's father 40 years earlier. At this point we have an Executive Producer, Suzanne DeLaurentiis and a great partner in Mark Valinsky media group (Not sure of his official title- May be a second Exec Prod.) They have set up an office for the show at Paramount Studios in Hollywood and are working to find the proper investors to make the pilot. My partner and I will be traveling out to see them and have some meetings and a table read of our script the last full week of January. I will be traveling back on 1/26 so it is likely that blog post will be a day or two late. We're hoping they can quickly find the money necessary to make the pilot and then an appropriate outlet for the series to continue. We'll see how that all develops.
Closer to home, I had the opportunity to be on and internet radio show last night hosted by Jeff Ferguson. the show Jeff Trek is broadcast on-line every Saturday Night from 5:30-7:30 ET from Jeff's home studio in Massachusetts. I called in and we had a lively discussion about Mission:Thanatos about science fiction television in general, technology we will use in the show and about the various projects I have been involved with over the years. It was a really good time and I look forward to being on again in February to give an update after our trip west. If you want to check out Jeff Trek he has a website and a facebook page.
Just to keep up with other Items:
- I've now sold 14 copies of The Stolen Throne including 13 at Amazon and 1 at Smashwords. There may be more, but data from B&N takes a while to come in. oh yeah, that is another piece of news: The Stolen Throne is now available directly through Barnes & Noble online for your Nook.
- I'm waiting for the first of new artwork for Tommy & The Troll. I'll email the artist later today to see how he is progressing on the initial sketches.
That's all for now. Have a wonderful and creative week.
