What have the Scifantorites been up to…

Brett has been playing with windows 10 and the new browser Edge. He is loving using Scrivener on Windows 10. Enough tech now…Brett has nearly finished his current WIP, ‘Tumble’ which will be published as Brett James Parker. This is the first in a new detective series full of grit and drama.

David is getting ready to submit his script ‘Elephant Grey’ to the Academy Nicholl Fellowship. Even if you don’t win, you never know who might just read your script. For example ‘Extant’ did not win by Steven Spielberg read the script and the rest is history. Good Luck David!

Kim has been busy working on her part comic part novel called ‘Infernum’. Kim is having some angst about her character names. Unfortunately her main character’s name which she loves is similar to another franchise and looks like it will have to be changed. Next month Kim will be at Supanova on the Gold Coast April 8-10 and Melbourne April 15-17.
