Slice of Life Introduction

I have a HUGE announcement to make, which I’ve been waiting for YEARS AND YEARS to tell you. Well, okay, not years and years but at least months and months. Drumroll, please…

Thank you, monkey, for that drumroll.

I have the huge pleasure of announcing a transmedia story called Slice of Life. Once upon a time I wrote a gritty, tongue-in-cheek fairy tale about a girl who must team up with her unfaithful lover in order to stop the Queen from destroying the earth’s life force. It has quirky characters, last-minute escapes from executions, Purgatory, colosseum battles, and many losses of limbs. But best of all, the story isn’t told with just words. A troupe of digital artists has teamed up to create an immersive experience for the viewer.

Noble Beast Transmedia Publishing Company will be publishing the digital story around the middle of February. I’d like to shout a huge THANK YOU to Richard Monson-Haefel for signing with our team. Their first transmedia app will be coming out soon, Steampunk Holmes. If you’re a fan of steampunk or a fan of Sherlock Holmes be sure to check it out, it’s amazing quality and is an inspiration to me.


Now, without further adieu, I’ll introduce the top-notch troupe of digital artists for Slice of Life:

      Fun would be the most apt word to describe it for me. It’s easy to get passionate about two things I love so much: Transmedia and Fairy Tales.

    That is SO COOL! Congrats woman! You are an inspiration.

  5. Right up my alley. Can’t wait. Proud of you. *knuckle bump*

  6. Wooooooooooohoo!

  7. Sooo fantastically cool, Ellie! You’re on a major roll here, my friend!!
    – Okay, dittos on the Noble Beast t-shirt.
    – Let me know what I can do to help promote: tweet, post, email, clarion call, you name it.
    – I went to an awesome pub in Prague; this is the multimedia video a couple of college kids put together to promote it’s opening. I think you’ll like it:
    – My review of Breaking Steele will be out this week. (Now I’m committed.)
    – Saw The Hobbit yesterday. Yeah, that’s what I’m talkin’ about! And your blog post perfectly nailed the highlights: the dwarf characters, the songs, the encounter with Gollum (his eyes!!!), the Rock Giant battle (brilliant!), and the chase in the goblin caverns?! The Great Goblin is so deliciously disgusting! All sooo good!!
    I look forward to February.

      Hey Glenn!
      – All right. I’ll talk to Noble Beast and see if we can get some on sale.
      – Thanks so much for helping promote! WE NEED YOU.
      – Wow, that’s some quality video! Loved it! Thanks for the share, it’s inspiring.
      – Now you’re really makin’ me smile.
      – YES! It was SO good! I want to watch it again. Rock Giant Battle!
      I’m looking forward to February too. Stay cool, man. :)

  8. EA! This is so fantastic! Last year things started and now look at you go! I am so happy to help you promote! What can I do? Not an interview. Something funky. Spunky. FUN! I’d love to honor you (especially after that fabulous guest post you shared last year!) Just tell me what I can do. In the meantime, I’ll be thinking of ideas. ;-)
