A few months back I went to Boston to do an author photo for greygirlbeast, aka novelist Caitlin R. Kiernan. Somehow along the way she gave me an Advanced Readers Copy of her upcoming book The Drowning Girl, a Memoir. It was filled with beautiful, strange, compelling imagery and I really wanted to bring some of it to life in the form of stills from the movie I can't make.
Together Caitlin and I are Kickstartering a project to make this happen. We've got actors/models to play the parts, we've got locations, but we're all scattered across the Eastern seaboard -- we need to get everybody together for three days and make pretty pictures -- we're also going to make a book trailer.
I'm really excited about this. I invite you to watch the video and you can use the Kickstarter page to pre-order images from the series and various other swank stuff. When it's done we'll be looking to place it as a gallery show at various conventions, so if you're on the art planning committee for Enormocon 6 or something drop me a line.
Here's a group of people coming together to make something beautiful out of air and good intentions -- I'm so happy that Kickstarter exists to allow things like this to happen. Every dollar we have going in to this helps us make the whole thing just that much better.
Here's one of the photos I've already done with custom costuming by Heartless Revival. I promise you, it's going to be this good.

Watch the video, it's good. I promise.
