Whoa... feel like I'm back in school Just got to look at an official "Coverage" of my screenplay for Graveyard Shift (the working title for the film version of "Midnight Snack"). For those unfamiliar with coverages (like me - I had to look it up) it's a detailed analysis and breakdown of the script used for the production process. It features critical commentary on characters, plot, pacing, tone, etc., as well as strong points-weak points and all that other film type stuff. It was awesome. Almost like a REAL movie project. ;) But don't worry - they liked it!

Also... the film has been handed off to the company's horror unit, "Black-Sky Films" and I'm supposed to be getting some media content for official press releases soon. Stay tuned, film fans!

MOVIE UPDATE!
Got a surprise call from A Ferris Wheel Films... pre-production begins this week on "Midnight Snack"! That means commissioned artwork, casting, etc. Also... they're sending someone to Cannes Film Festival to start promotion (woops, just fell over there)! Look for maybe a movie poster or other pics soon. I'm tingling..

Well, there it is... stick a fork in this one, it's done. But make sure you stick it in the brain, what with it being about zombies and all. :) "Another Rotten Night", sequel to "Midnight Snack", is finished, as far as my part is concerned. Now it's just the editing and then off to the printer. Looking at a June release. Viva Carson Dudley, praise God and thanks everyone for your support.

Movie update! Things are moving now on the film version of my book - they've rebranded the project as "Graveyard Shift" (the name of the series), apparently with an eye on a franchise, not just a standalone movie(!). There's a director and producer attached to it too, some names with Hollywood credit; also talk of 2012 filming and a possible Horror Rules video game(!!). If someone would periodically pinch, slap or splash cold water on my face, I would appreciate it. God is good. Stay tuned!

Woop woop! Just finished the final draft of "Another Rotten Night"! Well, it was 11:30 last night, but it feels like only yesterday! Hope to have a teaser posted in the next month or so... and shooting for a March release. Thanks all who've been... er... "reminding" me to keep writing! :) God bless!

Well, it's done! Sorry, not ALL done, but I just hit the official halfway point of the rough draft of book 2 in the Graveyard Shift series. Woot! Hey, a milestone is a milestone. :)

Carson and crew are up to their necks in zombies and other work-related problems in "Another Rotten Night." I'm really liking how things are turning out, creepy, crawly, funny and loaded with shenanigans.

If this keeps up, I'm still on track to get it done in 2011. Double woot! Thanks all for your patience and constant pressure to get it done.

Alright, enough talk, back to writing! Can't wait to see what happens next...

It's done... "Midnight Snack" the screenplay is finished and in the capable hands of A Ferris Wheel Films. Hollywood, beware! Whew. That was fun. Now, at looooooong last, I can get on to the book I've been spoiling to write... about bad guys who've just plain been spoiling. Time to bust out the digital pencil and get crackin' on Graveyard Shift: The Adventures of Carson Dudley Book 2 - "Another Rotten Night!" Bring on the zombie ninjas... bring on the corn dogs... bring on the wacky-tongui-in-cheek-over-the-top-horror-comedy-supernatural-adventure-novel-sequels! And if anyone else calls and wants me to write another screenplay, tell 'em it'll have to wait 'til the book is finished. Woot!

Okay, or maybe just take a message and see what the movie is.

Or, heck, just let me talk to 'em for a sec. - what could it hurt...? ;)

Well, it's official - signed the contract to write the screenplay for "Midnight Snack". Woot! Better yet, it's almost finished... I'll be shooting it off to A Ferris Wheel Films within the week. Brace yourself, Hollywood. Vampires, corn dogs and angry nuns incoming...

Spent two days at CamasCon this weekend as the keynote speaker. It's a Christian gamer's camp - there was a foot of snow, a barrel full of games, too many awesome folks to count and an (almost) overwhelming amount of God. Man! What am I doin' back here?! Let me in, let me in!!
