Cool Stuff at the Cocteau

The VERONICA MARS movie, famously funded by fans of the TV show via Kickstarter, will make its Santa Fe debut at the Jean Cocteau tomorrow.

The Cocteau bar will be introducing a special cocktail in honor of Ms. Mars -- the Marshmellow Hootch.

And on Monday evening, the latest in our series of author events -- CONNIE WILLIS will be coming to the Cocteau for an evening of conversation and booksigning.   Fans of SF and fantasy need no introduction to Connie, I trust.  She has won more Hugo and Nebula awards than any other author, living and dead, been a worldcon Guest of Honor, a worldcon Toastmaster and Hugo Emcee, and was recently named a Grandmaster by the SFWA.

See you at the movies.

Power of the fan base
It is nice to see that crowdfunding may also work for TV Series that where shut down by there producers.

That might be a trend for the future too.

Loved the show, have yet to see the movie, but my husband helped make it possible. :) Kickstarter is such a great thing.

Can't wait
Can't wait for it to be released in cinemas over here. It's available to be streamed but I rather go watch it with friends on the big screen. Just like ASOIAF, I'm a late bloomer when it comes to Veronica Mars. I started watching the series only last year so the kickstarter and all that already happened once I was finished.

I also adore Kristen Bell. She used to come on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson (BAMF) a lot and they got great chemistry together. I love her sense of humor. It's too bad I won't be able to get some Marshmellow Hootch.

Another reason to be sad I'm not near New Mexico - Connie Willis is one of my favourite authors (along with you, of course); she belongs in that very small category of authors whose books I will buy, in hard cover, the minute it is published, without knowing a thing about its contents. I hope you have a fantastic turnout for her!

It's never too late to read good books.

There's plenty of romance in ASOIAF, but, in truth, I don't think it's the typical pigeonholed romance that romance novelists peddle.

I wonder what the chances would be of successfully crowdsourcing a Dunk&Egg movie...?

You might raise the money, but the rights situation is complex.

Speaking of which I heard a rumor about possible ASOIAF movies being planned and even another TV show based in the world. Is this true?

All sorts of possibilities have been, and are being, discussed, including these, but nothing is actually being planned. We don't even have a fifth season yet, officially. So all the talk about what might come after is just pie in the sky.

I understand. Thank you for clearing that up.
