Revised one of the comics scripts, revised a comics proposal, recorded The Chronic Rift (it'll go live on Monday), recorded Destinies: The Voice of Science Fiction (which went out live at 11.30, and which will be archived soonish at Captain Phil Online), and sent some pitches to an editor.
It's a fascinating view into the man who would be president 13 years ago. My favorite is the first line in the article, from Michelle Obama: "There is a strong possibility that Barack will pursue a political career...." Pretty strong, yeah. *chuckle*
Karate class is at 1. After I get back from that, I intend to cook some kitchen sink casserole for the week, then sit down and write a lot -- either a comics script or more of Spectres, depending on my mood (both need to be worked on).
Then tonight, terri_osborne and I will sit and watch Get Smart's Bruce and Lloyd Out of Control. (Masi Oka, Nate Torrence, Patrick Warburton, and Larry Miller -- it doesn't get any better than this...............)
The other comics project I've been working on is yet another Farscape miniseries: D'Argo's Lament. I'm writing this one on my own (though Rockne's still serving as "executive producer," vetting my scripts), with art by Tommy Patterson, the same gent doing the current miniseries. The story takes place in the third season between "Revenging Angel" and "Fractures," and has D'Argo and Jool taking the "D'Argomobile" (the ship that would later be christened Lo'La) on a mission to find a substance that Moya needs to survive. (Recall that at the end of "Revenging Angel," D'Argo promised Jool the first ride in his ship. This miniseries will be that first ride...)
Farscape: Strange Detractors #2 will also be out in April -- as will my Star Trek: Alien Spotlight: Klingons one-shot from IDW. All in the same month as my 40th birthday! Woo!
Okay, so over the past day or two I looked over Ghost Writing Projects #1-2 and saw that they weren't nearly as bad as I thought they were. In fact, they fit in nicely with the series they were intended for. I was also told that the editors were pleased with what I gave them.
I doubt I'll ever work in this series again, but I think I can out myself on these, especially since -- for all that it's a house name -- it's an open secret who writes which of these books.
So: GWP #1 & 2 are both books in the monthly Don Pendleton's Mack Bolan, Executioner series published by Gold Eagle. The first one, Code of Honor, is scheduled for December 2009 (which would make it #373 in the series), with the second, Caribbean Queen, due in June 2010 (which would be #379).
