This has nothing to do with the Forgotten Realms, but if you enjoy my work, you might find it interesting:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/heirapparent/heir-apparent-animated-series?ref=category

My partners came up with idea to seek funding this way. I have no clue how likely it is that we'll raise the money we need to produce the pilot. But if you decide that you'd like to see the thing, you may want to consider backing us. As I understand it, you can pledge as little as one dollar. This will make you a backer in good standing, will help to keep the project on one of the early pages (where you want it so more people will see it), and, if we don't make our goal, you're never charged. So, for what it's worth...

Looks very interesting....count me in....I just need to wait until I get home so I can watch that again with the sound on.....then decide which level of support I can get away with and not have the wife make grumpy faces about my fiction budget ...again

My wife is actually intrigued by this(she nevers stops surpising me!)...we have some heavy business commitments until the middle of Feb, then we will do something.

I was thinking it would be very cool if I could somehow round up enough of the other scribes on here so maybe Candlekeep.com could get a Special Thanks.

If you dont mind I would like to check with Sage and/or Alaundo to see if it is something they has merit for the site and would support.
Assuming you and your partners would be ok with that.

If those who frequent Candlekeep would like to support the project in an organized way, that would be wonderful.

I think I could probably bend Alaundo's ear for a moment, yes.

I'd happily commit to such project.

I have a new horror story I'm quite proud of in the new horror anthology ZOMBIESQUE. If you're interested, here's one place to check out the book:

I have a new blog post up. Due to some restructuring, it doesn't seem to be accessible through my own personal website yet (or at least it wasn't when I tried.) But you can read it by going to this web address, then clicking on "Member blogs."

Wow! I haven't even had a chance to see it yet, and already it's done.

And I had such a curious interest in this series.

I'll have more to say about the project nearer to the release date.

Hi, Richard! I wish to hear your thoughts about THIS TOPIC. Some examples I gave are from your novels.

Richard....this totally slipped my mind. I signed up at the website today and tried to make a pledge. When I got to the payment kept getting a bad link error.

I will try again when I get home....I hope this has not discouraged any potential backers.

Your welcome. I received a nice note from Ken as well. Here's hoping it happens!

I have a story in a new shared-world anthology, The Crimson Pact, Volume One:

/Users/richard/Desktop/avatar1.png

Hereís the concept:

The Crimson Pact vowed to destroy the demons of the Rusted Vale . . .
but the demons had their own secret plan and escaped, invading dozens
of worlds . . . . Read 26 stories set in those many different worlds
about the men and women who have refused to let the demons win.

For more information, or to buy the anthology, go here:

http://www.thecrimsonpact.com/

Full disclosure: My story in Volume One is a reprint. If you picked up the anthology Zombie Raccoons and Killer Bunnies, you have it already. But that the new book has plenty of original stories you havenít got, so I still recommend you check it out.

Hi, Richard.

I hope you're free to divulge this much information...In the trilogy right after The Brotherhood of the Griffon, which, as you said, will still feature the same brotherhood, will we be seeing more DRAGONGORN? You see, they're the ones which hamper me from finishing Whisper of Venom, and some other things, too, albeit much minor compared to those creatures. I really like your style, and I've said it many times and will say it again, you're one of my favorite authors.

Every beginning has an end.

Interesting entry, Richard.

I once considered e-self-publishing...
