Sorry I’ve been away, but SO MANY COOL THINGS HAVE HAPPENED IN THE PAST WEEK!! So I’m going to hit them all in this one post. Bottom line, I have some kick ass news on all creative fronts!
NOVELS: Ghosts of Koa. The First Book of Ezekiel. Officially. Coming. Out. November 30th! YAAAHH!!! The ebook is being released first. Then the print version will be out a few weeks later. Also, The Final Page: The Second Book of Ezekiel is very much underway thanks to years of penning and thanks to NaNoWriMo! Amped!
PRODUCING, Part I: First off, the beautiful awesome Claire Zhuang has agreed to be the COO at Rebel Ragdoll. Claire’s a wonderful friend and colleague, and we’ve worked on quite a few creative projects together. In addition, I’ve also recruited Lex Curtis, an aspiring and very knowledgeable Director to be the creative lead on Rebel Ragdoll’s first project. Together, we’re gonna rock ass!
Both Claire and Lex share my vision of improving the diversity in film, media, and fiction genres in which women and people of color are underrepresented. I’m so happy to have them on board, and guess what?! We’ve started development on Rebel Ragdoll’s first feature called, “Ground Zero”! It’s gonna be an awesome sci-fi horror and thriller, and we’ll definitely be keeping you posted here and on The Rebel Ragdoll Website.
PRODUCING, Part II: I finally have an IMDB page! For those of you who aren’t familiar, IMDB is the International Movie Database, which lists anyone who’s anyone in the entertainment industry as well as their creative projects. This is the place where Shonda Rhimes (Scandal, Grey’s Anatomy), Quentin Tarantino (Django Unchained, Pulp Fiction), and many other influential folks, even J.K. Rowling (Harry Potter) have all their works listed. I’m finally on there, as well as my first film project as a Line Producer. It’s just a small step in the journey towards legitimacy in the industry, and I sure busted my rump for it.
I’m currently waiting for IMDB to update my profile with my picture, pen name, my other Producer credits, my bio, and more, so stay tuned. To see the page in its infancy, though, just click away! Check out my producer credits there, or click on the social media IMDB icon in the right column. It’s just the beginning, and I hope to kick more producing ass in the very near future! 😉
PRODUCING, Part III: The most exciting piece of news, I’ve produced an informational web series for eHow.com, and it’s finally live!!! Aaah!! It’s called “Travel Gear”, and it’s a great online series that’ll help you to prepare for traveling abroad. It’s short, sweet, and I love it! I’ve posted all five videos below, but I’ll also be re-posting these vids when I pick up my Fashionable Writer-Backpacker series in the spring of 2014.
SO WHAT’S NEXT?: Welp, I’m developing a foodie eHow series at the moment (super excited about that), working on my second sci-fi & fantasy novel, and trying to push Rebel Ragdoll’s “Ground Zero” script through the Rebel Ragdoll pipeline. In addition, I’m applying to an entire slew of different programs and fellowships in film producing, assistant directing, screenwriting, and tv writing. Also, Claire, Lex, and I are looking into finding funding for Rebel Ragdoll as a company and for “Ground Zero” as a project. In only a year, I’ve been able to make lots of moves towards my ultimate goals, and I really look forward to what the rest of this year, and 2014, holds! Thanks so much for sharing the journey with me. 🙂
Stay creative, keep it indie, and remember, dolls set the trend!
