Kristen here. So last week Allen came up with a great rough outline for Blood Mask. But it needed some work, especially work on expanding some of the roles to fit our resources. We have a lot of talented actors and not a lot of money. So we want to make sure that characters are part of the main focus of the story. This week, Oliver and I have met each day to come up with some additions to the outline (while preserving what is great about Allen’s first draft) but expanding it to have more characters and more scenes in locations available to us.

Every now and then someone would ask when I was going to finish. Finally I decided what could it hurt.
My daughter was friends with a published author and hooked us up, via email. I finally got brave enough to let someone read a snippet, someone who wasn’t a friend or family.
