Hiatus

Confluence“, the science fiction comic book by myself and Desirée Lee, is going on hiatus. We do plan to pick up with it again, but honestly don’t know when. As you all know, we’re currently hard at work on the new novel. This is the sasquatch book project that still doesn’t have a title. After that, if things go right, we’ll be embarking on the screenplay that I’ve mentioned here before. That’s the one we’ll be working with the very talented musician Mr. Tom Smith on. In the middle of all of this, we’re still trying to work on the RPG book. And a book for authors. And keep up with “MoonWraith“. Plus we’re parents of a healthy, active, 20-month-old daughter.

In short, we’re busy. Something has to give.

Sadly, the response to “Confluence” hasn’t been what we hoped. As such, neither have sales. So, we’re setting this project aside for the time being. Again, we plan to come back to it when times allows. There’s just no time right now to devote ourselves to a project and schedule that isn’t giving us the needed return. Want us to get back to “Confluence” more quickly? Support the project by picking up your copies at the URL given at the start of this post.

3D Prints?

As you all know, Desirée Lee and I write, draw, and in all other ways produce, the hit webcomic “MoonWraith“. For those of you who aren’t familiar with “MoonWraith”, please check it out. The original concept for “MoonWraith” was as a TV series. After four agents sat on it, and did nothing with it, we adapted it as a webcomic. Currently, a producer is looking over material for “MoonWraith” as a TV series. Wish us luck on that front, please!

DeviantArt is getting into the 3D printing business. How many of you would be interested in possibly buying 3D prints of various characters from “MoonWraith”? Please let me know. When you respond, please let me also know which character(s) you’d be interested in obtaining. This way we’ll know which one(s) to concentrate on if we explore this route. Please reply via the “Contact” form on my website. We look forward to your input!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Leprechaun_05

I want to wish all of my readers and fans a very happy St. Patrick’s Day.

Desirée Lee and I are both torn on this holiday. While we both love the imagery of the leprechauns, clovers, and the green everywhere, St. Patrick’s Day is anything but a pagan-friendly holiday. Still, given the Irish heritage of our family, we’ll be having colcannon for supper tonight, and watching a film on Netflix involving leprechauns. We simply ignore the anti-pagan roots of the day, and enjoy the parts that we like.

So, again, happy St. Patrick’s Day to all of my fans and readers. However you celebrate, I hope you’re safe, happy, and well. And if you’re drinking green beer today, please take care not to overdo it!

SyFy?

Does anyone have any idea as to how to get a project in front of people at SyFy? Or, better still, would any of my fans and readers happen to have an “in” with anyone at SyFy to help me get a project in front of them?

Advice, Please

A few years back I was working with an independent film director/producer/writer/actor. This person runs his own small film company. He had originally hired me to write one film for his company, then a second. After that we teamed up on some other projects. I had never done film work before, and my first contract with him specified that I wouldn’t get payment for that first project until it was made.

However, none of the projects I’d written for him, or that we’d worked on together, have been filmed due to his inability to acquire funding. Then, a year or so ago, I discovered that he was advertising a new project on-line. This project was the first film he’d hired me to write. He had teamed up with someone else, taken the ideas I created from the core idea he had given me when he first asked me to write the screenplay for him, changed the title and the character names, and was progressing with the project. He’s never said a word at all to me about this, despite cutting me out of it, and running with my ideas and material.

Any suggestions on what I should do? The “new” project is now listed in IMDB for a 2015 release. Do I have any recourse here, or am I just out of luck all the way around?
