O Hai.

Yeah, pardon the dust. We’re still on Hiatus, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t hard at work trying to churn out a slate of awesome releases for 2015. I just wanted to give you all a look beneath the curtain as it were at what is in the works.

First off, our goal is to not need another long break like this ever again. To that end we want to have a solid YEAR of material ready to release before we make our glorious return. The idea is that episodic shows like Bubblegum will still release weekly, but FMP Presents and Forward March will release one episode in a staggered monthly pattern.

For example (and this isn’t really the schedule guys, don’t hold me to it) in June you may get the next three episodes of Bubblegum, July will see a Forward March and August an episode of FMP Presents and so on. The idea is to keep the schedule realistic while not allowing the waiting period for finished projects to balloon as it has previously.

SPEAKING of Bubblegum… The original animated series was just released on bluray. I cannot recommend that enough. Furthermore, since they had so much room the included a truly STAGGERING number of subtitle tracks so even if English isn’t your first language, they probably have you covered.

2015 is looking like a great year for FMP, we hope to have a lot of great audio for you soon.

FMP Nano update!

nonowrimologoTime to bring everyone up to speed on the first week of FMPNaNoWriMo! It’s been and odd ride so far, so here goes.
The basic upshot was, I planned to write three arcs worth of the Bubblegum Crisis Audio Drama over the month of November. I’d begun outlining, planning. I even had a rough draft, but it frankly sucked so I trashed it and began a new with the planning in early October. I got a lot of work done in the first half of the month, but dark clouds loomed. Unfortunately, the end of October proved to be a really awful time plan for a major writing project.

ggctinyI always knew we were going to lose one weekend near the end of the month to a convention down in Seattle. Geek Girl Con 13 was a lot of fun and extremely interesting. We spent most of Saturday in the lower levels, playing board games and even getting in a really fun Star Wars RPG session with the new game. Highly recommended!
Unfortunately, Sunday… Around 11AM I got a call that my Paternal Grandmother had entered hospice care. She died just as we reached the hospital.
I’m working on a blog post about my Nana, and how important she was to me not just as a grandmother, but as a writer. She was a really special lady and I want to share her with you all, but right now it’s still too close, so that’s for another time.
But it meant I spent the next two weeks arranging to travel to Oregon for her funeral and coming to grips with a huge part of life not being there anymore. Thoughts of writing, or planning, were light years down the list and I got next to nothing done.
So, November began, and I decided to just…wing it. No outline, nothing but vague ideas, and CHARGE!
As of Sunday night, the word count stood at 5,285 of 50,000. Right about on target.
