A New Universe
Thanks to being a part of the IAMTW (see previous entries), I was made aware of an anthology for a tie-in that was looking for submissions. Since I am awaiting word on two proposals, I figured it couldn’t hurt to check this out.
Well, now that I know what it feels like when people call me at DC. I know the continuity, the characters and the corporate history so well, that information comes easily.
I admit to being somewhat daunted by the sheer volume of reference made available to me for this potential project. I mean, I’ve downloaded hundreds of pages of information and am slowly wading my way through it. Story ideas are coming to me and that’s a good feeling.
Still, I had some questions and sure enough, the editor put me in touch with his company’s equivalent of, well, me. And he’s come through with encouraging words, and a ton of guidance which has allowed me to focus on the key backstory and technology issues.
I like the challenge of trying something new and I am impressed by the work done to date which will, ultimately, allow me to play in this new sandbox with the right tools.
