Undertow: Blood Forest Is Out!

Very proud to announce the launch of Undertow: Blood Forest, from Realm.fm!

Blood Forest is an audio fiction series. It is officially part of the creepy Maine Undertow universe that was created by Fred Greenhalgh of Realm.fm. He assembled a Mainer writers’ team that consisted of myself, my Tuesday Mayhem Society cohort Emma Jane Shaw Gibbon, accomplished playwright and writer Bob LeBlanc, and the awesome comic/horror author Shawn French.

We wrote this thing crazy fast. It went from whiteboard/brainstorming to finished product in about 6 months. This was my first experience in a writers’ room, but hopefully not my last. I really like the audio format. It’s kind of halfway between watching something and reading something. (Think old Twilight Zone radio shows, but in a series format.) The Foley class I took at The Recording Workshop also finally came in handy. (Fun fact: my teacher’s brother was a zombie in the original Night Of The Living Dead)

I was particularly stoked to learn that David Clennon was among the cast. He played Palmer in The Thing, one of my favorite horror movies.

Reviews are starting to trickle in. Comicbook.com also did an article.
