Rain of the Ghosts AudioPlay

Hello,

As you may know, a few years ago I started writing a series of Young Adult novels, starting with Rain of the Ghosts and followed by its sequel, Spirits of Ash and Foam. I've enjoyed the process and I've enjoyed working on a franchise whose course I can steer myself.

More recently, I launched an ambitious project, adapting Rain of the Ghosts into an unabridged full-cast AudioPlay with an all-star list of voice talent, a musical score and sound effects. (It's definitely not your standard single-narrator audiobook.)

The voice tracks are already recorded and paid for, but projects like this are expensive, and to finance the post-production (editing, scoring, sound effects and mixing), I've launched a KickStarter campaign* here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1693681637/rain-of-the-ghosts-full-cast-audioplay.

I hope you'll consider pre-ordering a copy of the Rain of the Ghosts AudioPlay on KickStarter.

Now with this sort of thing, getting early momentum is very important, so if you are going to contribute to the campaign, the sooner you do the more it helps us out. It would also be very helpful if you could help us spread the word about the campaign. Forward this email to your friends. And if its something you do, mention the project on social media like Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr. The campaign's Facebook page is https://www.facebook.com/pages/Rain-of-the-Ghosts/414679108692632 and the KickStarter page can also be reached by clicking on http://www.rainoftheghosts.com. For those of you who are on Twitter, my handle is @Greg_Weisman and we're using the hashtag #RainoftheGhosts. I'm also more than willing to do interviews and press, so if you are connected to any kind of press outlet, please don't hesitate to contact me. Every little bit helps!

Thanks,

Greg Weisman

Gallifrey One 2015

My next convention appearance is at GALLIFREY ONE 2015, a Doctor Who Convention in Los Angeles.

What does Greg Weisman have to do with Doctor Who, you ask?

Well, nothing really, unless you count being a fan myself as having something to do with it, but I will be doing a number of things while I'm there that aren't Doctor Who related, because, well, because as my friend Chris Jones says, "They keep letting us."

Here's my schedule for Valentine's Day, i.e. Saturday, February 14, 2015:

Autographs - Saturday, February 15, 1:00pm-2:00pm, Autograph Alley
Kaffeeklatsch - Saturday, February 15, 3:00pm-4:00pm, Board Room
A Day in the Life of a TV Writer/Producer - Saturday, February 15, 4:00pm-5:00pm, Program D
Women of Young Justice - Saturday, February 15, 6:00pm-7:00pm, Program D
Young Justice Meet-Up - Saturday, February 15, 7:00pm-8:00pm, Program D

The Women of Young Justice is likely to be a real treat. There's more info (and a terrific graphic) on Chris' Tumbler here:
http://christopherjonesart.tumblr.com/post/110749267743/so-some-of-you-know-greg-weisman-and-i-have-been

But to sum up, we've got:

Stephanie Lemelin - Voice of Artemis
Kelly Hu - Voice of Cheshire
Vanessa Marshall - Voice of Black Canary
Masasa Moyo - Voice of Bumblebee
Lolita Ritmanis - Composer
Greg Weisman - Writer/Producer
Christopher Jones - Comic Book Artist

After the panel, we'll have a more informal meet-up where folks can get a picture taken, an autograph or just chat with Chris and myself (and maybe a couple of the other guests).

As you can see, earlier in the day (and maybe at the Meet-Up), I'll be signing (for free) and selling signed copies of my novels RAIN OF THE GHOSTS and SPIRITS OF ASH AND FOAM and copies of selected animations teleplays (including GARGOYLES and YOUNG JUSTICE). Scripts are $20 cash. The novels are $10 each, but if you purchase both, I'll throw in signed copies of the original RAIN OF THE GHOSTS development artwork by artist Kuni Tomita for free, as well.

Hope to see a few of you there!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, everyone!

I've taken a bit of a break from ASK GREG, but I'm back. I also started a new job this week. (Can't wait to tell you what it is!) This means my schedule is a bit more regular, so I'm hoping to get back to answering questions here on a daily basis. But it may also mean that things may get a little crazy on occasion as I get acclimated, so I may also miss a few days here and there.

So... business as usual, right?
