We've reached Round Two

I heard back from Marco Palmieri and he's blessed my pitch for the Star Trek Anthology for 2007. So, now I have to turn around a 2-3 page story outline (or synopsis depending on what you want to call it) by Monday. If that gets approved, then I should be in the Anthology, unless someone else's story just beats the pants off of mine for that last slot. No rest for the wicked, let me tell you.

Also, I've heard back from kradical and he liked my pitch (although much altered from the original) enough to pass it on to Big Finish Audio Productions and the BBC for approval.

Yes, that's right. I may be doing a Doctor Who short story. More details once I know what the details are. That's the wonderful world of licensed products. They may have changes they want made or they may cancel it completely. After all, they are the owners and the BBC takes its Doctor Who very seriously.

Still, I am seriously stoked about these opportunities, let me tell you. *grin*

Yay! Go you! I hope the Who pitch goes all the way through! Keep it up! *and no, I'm not a cheerleader, but I'm on my 2nd glass of Spätlese for the evening).

Well, it's been interesting so far.

In one conversation with kradical, we changed everything about the story except for which doctor I'm going to be using and his opponent.

Time to dig up some more videos and see if I can get these characters down pat.

What? It's research!

That sounds familiar ...

Congrats, Richard!

Thanks, Michael.

I was really sweating this one. I won't say it's easier to submit an idea to Keith than Marco (esp. since he's rejected more than he's accepted from me), but he's a known entity.

I'd never submitted anything directly to Marco before - (well, there's a novel proposal I sent him a year ago July, but he probably hasn't had time to look at it and reject it yet) - so I had no clue what types of stories he likes, etc.

It's a little trickier pitching cold.
