As Iâ€™ve written in earlier posts. Iâ€™ve been working on the latest draft of the script. Itâ€™s starting to take shape, but I suddenly became aware of a deadline looming ahead of me: Christmas!
Why should I worry about that, you may ask, since itâ€™s barely October and itâ€™s not like I have a comic thatâ€™s updating or anythingâ€¦ well, there is one more Melonpool thing that needs to get done, and if I can get my act together, there could be a Book IV under some of your trees this year!
The way I figure it, I have about 3 weeks of editing to do on Book VI, which was delayed when my grandmother suddenly got cancer a few years ago. Since then, itâ€™s been rather painful for me to revisit it, but I think Iâ€™m at a place now, where I can move on. I think it might be a worthy project right now, so I may button up what I need to on this draft this week, then finally finish the book. If I can get it to Comixpress by the beginning of November, it should be available for sale for Christmas. This also would give me something to sell at Comic-Con, to further increase the budget of the film.
I wonder if people are ready to finally finish out their Melonpool libraries?
