We have liftoff

February 25, 2016


My story “Making the Cut” is this month’s issue of One Teen Story. I like the way they leverage the online aspects of their publication (though I’m also looking forward to seeing the print version):  there’s a video at YouTube, a “teaser” page, an interview with me at their blog , and the cover and my interview are featured on their Facebook and Twitter pages.

Whew! Got tired just linking all that.

Anyway, for a mere $1.50 a month you can subscribe and get a longish short story every month–so at the end of a year your $18 will have purchased you two fine short story collections, one in paper form and one you can cart around on a phone or tablet. A fine gift for that hard-to-buy-for high school student on your list (at least it was for three on MY list…).

In other news, the “Robo4ce” screenplay won the Gold award from the Beverly Hills Screenplay Contest (Family division), and in what should really stop being surprising anytime now, won Best Feature Screenplay at the SoCal Film Festival. I was fortunate to be able to attend the last, and after a number of conversations with other screenwriters and the staff–all wonderful people–things came into sharper focus for me.

I also had a blast at the Final Draft Awards, held at Paramount Studios. I got to hover over Robert Bloch’s typewriter, gaze longingly at some Billy Wilder scripts, and chat with yet more writers (waves at Diane Musselman of Dancing Forward Productions who has at least two films under her belt, and Victoria Murad of Lilla Cardea Productions, who just wrote and produced a short: Esmeralda and the Audition).

So, yeah, February has been very, very good to me. Busy, but good. More busy goodness to come.
