Okay, all of you Niners out there: I need you to head over to soulonds9's LJ and bludgeon him with blunt instruments. I can't believe he's going to jettison his DS9 series simply because he can't get the Paramount imprimatur!

Great Maker! Does he consider all of my play in the B5 verse a waste of time? There's no way in hell my own weird notions will ever be endorsed by JMS, but that certainly doesn't stop me from noodling around on his playground (with proper respects paid, of course).

Go now! Tell him there's a major audience right here on the internet who will appreciate his effort, published or no.



*kisses you*
I've met a few people interested in getting into the script/novel submission arena, and it's just one of those things that doesn't get done now. They ask you, with very few exceptions. And let's face it, fandom is a far more responsive place than your local bookstore, and doesn't cost nearly as much time or pandering to editors!

Well won't you be surprised...

Whether or not my current DS9 trilogy "Desperate Times" ever sees the light of day I've learned two things...

a) More than wanting DT to be recognized by the community at large, I do really like the story and want to see it through...

b) That part of me that wants to be a published recognized author of screenplay or novel is going to have its day...I just bought some references on screenplay writing. Whether it's the first DS9 movie, the next next gen movie, or the screenplay version of Desperate Times...I **WILL** do it one day...the bottom line is...I want to contribute to the recognized Trek canon...and I'm willing to meddle around with agents and editors to do it.

Re: Well won't you be surprised...

I didn't mean to sound patronising, if that's how I came across - and I wish you luck with it. I hope we get to see the finished work someday. You should just realise that the Berman & Braga show have a pretty good monopoly going and don't really do unsolicited anything now (I believe Paramount as a whole stopped accepting unsolicited manuscripts during TNG, apologies that I don't recall exactly when). Your best bet would be to approach a literary agent, perhaps one who deals with Simon & Schuster already, who would obviously know much more than I do on such things.


I'm aware that Paramount doesn't take unsolicited manuscripts...it's going to require that I get an agent with ties to Paramount or Simon and Schuster who knows their way around and who is impressed with my work.

But I'm willing to try at least.
