Sagas and such...

Hi Jennifer!

I am sitting here with a dunce cap on my head, because I forgot that I had made a reply post in the Library. "Bad memory. Bad memory." {Blip.} Two months ago!

My saga is a Babylon 5 (B5) prequel, and I have tried to get it published. Curiously, the drawback has been, that to be a prequel, I tried to stay as close to the long-lived characters and cultures as established by the B5 franchise, which publishers seem to see a copyright problem. I could not find the door that several other authors used to write and publish B5 and related stories. (I think Warner Brothers own the films and the Del-Rey and other brands that published the books.)

Another drawback to publishing is my diversions. I have written crossovers with varying series and stories that have been of interest.

Joseph Straczynski said that he told his B5 story during the televised run, and it generated enough interest to try three follow-on series; Crusade, Legend of the Ranger (LotR), and The Lost Tales. They died ignoble deaths due in part to network suits who thought they knew more about the audience's favor about good science fiction. As I understand, one bigwig of the Sci-Fi channel then, said B5 was "too sci-fi-ey." In the other part was due to the death of two character actors; Richard Biggs as "Doctor Franklin" and Andreas Katsulas as "G'Kar," a knave -to- knight. I have not found anything new, in fact all of my links are cobweb.

I have a draft of a crossover with my saga and P&P that is going through editing now. Hopefully, it will be ready to begin posting parts to the DWG board soon. Really, perhaps the last bit should be to my editor before I start posting parts, because it is hard for readers to keep up with a story, if too long time between the component parts' postings.

If you come back to find this post, you may e-mail me: Ellayn at VWH-Corp.com
