Same Look, New Content

So the past couple of days, I’ve been doing some minor tweeking here and there to Emergency Room Productions website. If you haven’t poked around lately, I encourage you to do so. The look remains the same, but new content has been added.

It’s been an exciting couple of months for me, as yo can tell by some of the new content. The first thing I want to point out is that I’ve modified the right side of the page so you can see my tweets easier and join me on Goodreads. If you’re not my fan there or you don’t follow me on Twitter or like me on Facebook, why not?

Then I want to direct your attention to is a new video on my video page. It’s the second reading of my short play Sunday Dinner, this time presented by Spokane Stage Left in Spokane, WA. I’m toying with putting this up as a script sample as well, if that is something that might be of interest, let me know in the comments!

Next, I want to direct you to my News page, where you can listen to my entire interveiw with Sherri Ribbonwitz on the BlogTalkRadio show “Chatting With Sherri”. This was a fun 30 minute interview I did on December 24, 2013.

Finally, if you make your way to my Rights page, you will see that I’ve added a new script that can be purchased. Black Box Theater Publishing has published a collection of four of my short scripts, titled “Based On The…”. This script is available for purchase from Amazon.com, so help me out and put a little money in my pocket by picking up a copy today.

Thanks for sticking with me over here on my tiny atom (or would that be pixel?) of the web as we continue to grow Emergency Room Productions.

West Coast Invasion

While I was doing my “other life”, my life outside of my writing and my acting and my theater stuff, last night (in other words my other job), I got an email from Sarah at the Stage Left Theater in Spokane, WA. It was simply titled “Congratulations”. It was a good thing I looked at the sender because I have a habit of deleting any emails that looks suspicious and usually those suspicious ones are titled “congratulations” or “The stamps you ordered” or something similar.  But Dionysus has been good to me these final weeks of 2013, so I decided to look a little closer. (Side note, I don’t worship Dionysus, but as the Greek god of the theater, I thought I’d give him a shout-out here. However, I’ve been truly blessed by the Lord above.)

So glad I didn’t delete that email. My “microplay”, Sunday Dinner, was selected by the Spokane based theater for their upcoming, two-night festival “Fast & Furious”. The Fast & Furious festival is a showcase of 1-minute plays from over 50 different writers from across the United States.

Sunday Dinner, was originally written for and performed by Mind The Gap Theater in New York City for World Theater Day 2015 and they did an awesome job with it, but I’m excited to see it performed from a different cast of actors AND I’m excited as it marks my first piece performed on the West Coast. So no, I’m not personally heading west (unless some generous patron wants to fly me there), but my work is and that, to me anyways, is more important then me personally being there.

In other Everett news, I will have some new works published by Black Box Theater Publishing, coming in the new year. Four of my short plays (each around the ten minute mark) will be published individually as well as part of a collection titled “Based On The…” . I haven’t talked a lot about this because I was still in the editing process, but I’m happy to share that with you as we prepare to step into 2014. These works will be available on a number of platforms (ebook, print copy) and for purchase on Amazon. More information when it becomes available.

Finally, late in the evening of December 24/early Christmas morning, I got an email from Rebecca at Heartland Play Publishers. Someone requested the royalties to my play THE ABSOLUTELY TRUE STORY OF TOM SAWYER AS TOLD BY BECKY THATCHER. No details on that yet, but I’m excited for whoever is putting it on, as that show has a lot of personal feelings for me and means a lot to me.

I’m going to try and squeeze in another blog post before the new year is on us, but if I don’t, Happy New Year and thank you for being a part of my journey
