Great shows and projects!

I am now casting for our new season of Sherri’s Playhouse, we have some really exciting shows coming up!!!! So anyone who is interested in acting in a radio play please get in touch. No pay but a lot of great exposure. It is all done via Skype and phone so you can call from anywhere! We especially need male voices.  https://www.facebook.com/Sherris-Playhouse-1415103118746094/ 

 

I would like to thank you everyone who supported my attempt to bring Cat’s Pajama’s to the stage.  Sadly it failed.  I really tried hard.  It was the true college try.  It just breaks my heart.  I worked so hard.  But it was not to be.

 

Coming soon an audio book for my memoir; Entering My Second Half!  I am so excited, this one is really personal so keep your eye on this space but for now here is the link to all the ways you can buy the book; http://authorpage.com/books/127

I had a such a great time with Highlander Star & film maker; Elizabeth Gracen!  We chatted about her playing a part in my new radio play Joe Kronus as Jane Austen!!  We talked about her work on the radio show Suspense and how much fun it is to act with your voice only.  I would also like to thank  Elizabeth Gracen for her wonderful endorsement of Cats Pajamas for my attempt to bring to the theater.  Thank you so much Elizabeth.  https://www.kickstarter.com/…/be-a-part-of-theater-…/updates

Cat’s Pajamas, Hamlet and The Chatty!!!

Well, I am going to try to bring my dreams of having one of my plays on stage come to life! I started a campaign yesterday on Kickstarter to get the financing to make it happen. So you can be a part of theater and put Cat’s Pajamas on the stage! http://kck.st/2meg7vY  I have some great rewards listed and even if you don’t live here in California, you can be a part of the theater, kind of cool, huh? 
I would like to thank everyone who listened to  Hamlet on the New Years Eve, we have had amazing numbers.  I think I can speak for the whole cast,  we were all stunned! To be honest I wasn’t sure about doing it as a recording, I like the live theater aspect of it but since it was a holiday it was nice to just press a button and let it go.  I would like to thank Everett  Robert who edited it all Christmas week, Nick Davidge for all the sound effects that he created for the broadcast, And C. B. Floyd for his help in editing the play.  And Anne Louise Fortune for adapting and directing the play for the radio theater.  For those who missed it please listen to here for our archive of it;  http://tobtr.com/10488099  
And to listen to the cast chat about the whole experience here is the link; http://tobtr.com/10488099 
If you would like to join all the fun of our next production please drop us a line; https://www.facebook.com/Sherris-Playhouse-1415103118746094/

Mentoring, Hamlet, Patreon, interviews and other scattered subjects this week!

I have taken up with an idea about mentoring a few writers.  Just to get my toes wet. My mentoring is for a targeted period on a retainer for 10-15 hours specific targeted help. Non refundable.
If you like the support you can re-sign up. And as part of that deal you get a free interview on Chatting with Sherri for your new book with all the advertising that goes with that. Afterwards we can discuss how you did and how you can use the knowledge toward your own platform. Sound me a note if your interested at; https://www.facebook.com/RithebardWebsite/
I am giving one more month for the sale for my book’s anniversary, to celebrate; you can buy the e-book of the book for just one dollar;  https://www.amazon.com/dp/B015T985JO/EnteringMySecondHalf/?tag=authorpage03-20 
 I also thought you would enjoy this short article I wrote, MY JANE AUSTEN BOOK CLUB: LOVELY JANEITES: WHAT WOULD JANE DO? http://t.co/splrpNbAHr
We are doing Hamlet, it is a very short version so don’t worry but it is an amazing thing to produce Shakespeare.  One thing I really find interesting is how many phrases and words come from this play.  If you think Hamlet is not your cup of tea listen to the words, you will be amazed how many times you hear his words in our modern language and people just don’t realize it. If you would like to take part in our next production please drop us a line;https://www.facebook.com/Sherris-Playhouse-1415103118746094/

Happy World Theater Day!
This is not a secret I love the theater, and I love that there is a day to celebrate it. I love the theater to go to and to perform in, I love radio theater, (which I take part in) i love community theater, (which I also take part in.) I love going to professional theater which I have been going to since I was 7 years old (I saw Porgy and Bess at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion with my class.) I have seen plays in LA, Chicago, San Diego and London. My parents went to Broadway for their honeymoon, it is a family tradition. Anyway go to the theater or if you can’t afford that please listen to our radio theater, all by new playwrights that were performed live on the air;https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3gst-mQJWiD01j4fcNCfjg

Special Feature!!!

Next is a feature that we have not had in a while, an author interview.

Me (1)My guest this week is; James Richardson from Blacksburg, SC!

His works include;

Twilight City: Edward the Silver Werewolf (Son’ of Cain series),

Edward must overcome his anger at what’s been done to him. The deaths of his daughter’s haunts his mind throughout the long centuries. He must put all that aside in order to stop the Son’s twilight_city_frontcover_jamesrichardson_soul71_sll_sllb_sscof Cain from dominating the world of man, and free the long forgotten Cain from his imprisonment.

The Terra Drago Chronicles: The Sacrifice(Reign of Fire series),

Cominus thought he had lost his younger brother, only to find he was in a world where myth and legends walk the land. There he learns of the curse that plagues their bloodline, and that Terra drago front (1)his brother was running out of time as his own curse consumes him. With the help of his brother Cominus they bring an end to a war that has raged on for millennia.

Tell us a bit about yourself and your back ground?

It wasn’t until I red R.A. Salvatore’s The Dark Elf trilogy that I found myself thinking. What if I did this then one day I picked up a pen. The words just flowed onto the paper, within a week I had half of a book done granted it was a rough draft. Let that didn’t stop me from soldering on until I was done. Then something strange happened when I was writing the ending to Terra Drago. Idea’s flowed into my head of future books in that series along with many other’s. That was when I knew being an author was what I wanted to do.

When you go through your need to write time do you make deals with your friends and family? 

 Not really if they see my noise in a notebook scribbling down a paragraph they know to wait until I’m done. You never know when inspiration will strike!

Does reading a good book ignite your imagination?

 Oh most difently sometimes I take on the role of the main character as I read along, or I make another character in my head that travel’s along side the main character. There have been times that I’ve been so engross in a book. That I burst out laughing because my mind came up with a witty remark to the main characters dialogue. Then my family looks at me if I’ve gone insane.

Do you love history? Does it have a part in creating your stories?

 Of course, myth and legends of that time I believe make’s a person ask “what if”. What if that legend was true, how would they evolve over the ages. How would their children look like, act like, or simply watched as the flow of time passed. Would they live in the shadows of human civilization or would they take center stage.

Give us a taste of the best part of your book, what do you want readers to take away from the experience?

 Well in Twilight City its were Edward was captured sneaking on board the Queen of the West. When I created Jacob to be Edward’s nemesis I didn’t think I would grow to hate my own character. Let when Edward was chained down in the maintenance room on board his ship, and Edward was pounding on Jacob even chained. I was so routing for Edward as Jacob laid on the floor. Then in Terra Drago it’s when Draco and Cominus are on his roof before their trip to Sandsabar. I mean what little boy hasn’t dreamed about having a sword fight with his older brother.

What do you think all the different styles of publishing? 

 I can’t really say about traditional publishing, I went the self publishing route. I can see the merit’s of both. If an agent contacted me today I probably sign, seeing they have more resources to get my work into reader’s hands then I do a the moment.

What was the biggest satisfaction in completing your book?

It’s when I see the smiles on their faces, the emotion’s that play across their face as the reader’s connect with the characters. For me its not about the money it’s about the world’s I create in my books that allows people to lose themselves if for only a short time.

Tell us a bit about your working on now?

8. Right now I’m working on a book called The Balance: Darkness Unchained. It’s about a fallen god and a Chicago Detective as the race to stop Lucifer’s rising. It should be out within a month or two then off to write the second book for Twilight City.
