How Do I Get An Agent? VIDEO

Hey folks,

As we prepare our new Coverage Ink web site for launch (sometime soon, hopefully, but you never know when it comes to things like php coding and so on...) I thought I'd share one of the videos for the site. Here I explain exactly how you (do not) get an agent. Check it out right HERE.

Heads-up: returning for Spring 2010: the CS OPEN! More to come very, very soon on everyone's favorite live writing tournament, hosted by Coverage Ink for, oh, what is this, the TENTH straight year? Holy cow!

regards to all,

Jim C.

All Quiet on the Western Front

Hey folks,

We've been a bit quiet over here for the past month or so. there was no January newsletter (but there will be one late February. Here's what we've been up to:

1) New website. A completely redesigned website with lots of new content launches late February.

2) Writers on the Storm ON HOLD for 2010. As of now, we have no plans to do another contest this year. The main reason for this is the ghastly amount of time it takes me personally to administrate the contest. Even with Portia and the team handling the lions' share of the work, I still have to be hands-on. this is shaping up to be a busy year and I do not foresee being able to devote time to WOTS... at the moment.

3) CSCS OPEN is a GO for 2010. This is the second go-round of the new online version of the CS Open. This time with more organization and a better database!

4) The big project we're gearing up for is production of Coverage Ink's second film, shooting later this year. LIBERATOR is a big budget 23-minute action/adventure short. More info including cast and director etc. coming soon.

5) Marketing of WOTS IV (2009) scripts is expected to begin in March.

Keep the faith, folks!
