Every Day

For the past three months or so I’ve been making a very concerted effort to post a new entry on my blog/website each and every day. Along with that, I’ve been trying hard to make sure that each post is a minimum of 150-words-long due to SEO tactics. The reasons for this are:

1) I want to keep in touch with my fans and readers. Not every public figure is accessible to their fans. I don’t want to be like that. I love my fans.

2) Keeping the blog/site active helps draw SEO numbers, keeping it higher on search result listings.

3) Some people consider a blog or site that hasn’t updated recently—some go so far as to limit “recently” to 24 hours—as useless, and unworthy of their time.

In short, I’m attempting to keep this site/blog as up to date as I can, as active as I can. This is because I want to stay in touch with my fans, and potential fans. At the same time, I don’t make money from posts here. I need to work. As you know, I’m busy on several projects, both co-written by my talented wife Desirée Lee, solo projects, and things co-written with other people. Aside from being a bestselling, award-winning writer, I’m also a husband and father. So, one post per day on this blog/site can be a challenge. However, I am trying to continue that, and will for the foreseeable future.

“Ghostbusters”

Ghostbusters

The above photo was taken by Desirée Lee when we picked up the anniversary Blu-ray releases of “Ghostbusters” and “Ghostbusters II”. Those who know me at all know that “Ghostbusters is my all-time favorite movie. It was released in 1984; I was 9-years-old at the time. From the moment I first saw it, I’ve been a hardcore fan of the “Ghostbusters” franchise.

Mr. Dan Aykroyd has been trying to get “Ghostbusters III” made for years. Now, word is floating around that “Ghostbusters III” will be a reboot, not a sequel. I’m very much not happy with that news. Sadly, we’ll never be able to see the original team together again in a live-action project because of the passing of Mr. Harold Ramis. Still, a passing-of-the-torch story in which one of more of the original Ghostbusters trains a new team or franchise group would have been perfectly acceptable to me. Shortly prior to the news of the reboot, Dan Aykroyd had said that he would like to see an entire “Ghostbusters Universe”, in which we’d see the Ghostbusters pasts, and futures as well. My guess is that the idea for that harkens back to his original concept for the first film, in which we would’ve seen multiple teams of Ghostbusters fighting paranormal creatures in different times, and different dimensions throughout the universe.

Anyway…

I’m an award-winning, bestselling author, as well as a die-hard “Ghostbusters” fan. As such, I would dearly love to be able to work on an official, canon “Ghostbusters” story. If anyone seeing this can make that happen, please get in touch with me. I’d be forever grateful. Working on a “Ghostbusters” project, be it film, TV, comic book, novel, video game, or anything else, would be a nearly lifelong dream come true.
