Re: There will be a sixth Stravaganza!

yes i have thought that maybe at tv series would be more suited, because then, we wouldn't miss lots of important things, but then it might not be as good quality as a film might be. i'm not saying that there aren't good quality tv series out there(because there definately are) but the chances of it becoming a really good production as opposed to a half hearted one are less than if it was made into a film.

sorry do i make any sense?

I think you're making perfect sense. However, I think that (if they were to do something) Stravaganza would be better as a series because they wouldn't necessarily be under the time crunch that movies seem to have. With a tv series, they could take a whole season to do one book which means they could elaborate more on little things that might get passed over for a feature film.

Now am I making any sense?

Re: There will be a sixth Stravaganza!

A_I_13 and FireDragon-16:

Surely a TV series would be better for the lenght, even with not the best special effects, a good story is always good even when the effects looks a little (or more than a little) unreal.

I like the Hallmarks mini-series like Dinotopia, The Lost Empire, Snow Queen, etc. I think that would be a very nice option!

But I don't miss the hope for a really great tv production when I see Game of Thrones!

Anyway, I still wish an animated version (subliminal message: Ghibli pleaseeee XD)

Sorry. I've been away in the US.

City of Swords comes out July on both sides of the Atlantic. I'm expecting the copy-edits this week!

Exciting!

Re: There will be a sixth Stravaganza!

That's really great news. I can't wait to read City of Swords! ^_^

I just saw the (tentative?) cover on Amazon - it looks very dramatic.

Re: There will be a sixth Stravaganza!

That's very interesting! Thanks for telling me. I can now put it up on Facebook.

Just slogging through the last copy-edits. 3 more chapters to go.
