Versions of this (“Why haven’t you . . .?” “Did you ever . . . ?”) are hands down the most common questions that pop up on our Facebook page these days. As to the why haven’t we, the answer is simple, and sad. We ran out of money. The 2008 economic meltdown, plus a back-stabbing by a corporate partner, hit FCA really hard. But, as I like to say, we ain’t dead yet! Tammy and I have talked many times about trying to do these. And, yes, we have discussed doing a Kickstarter if we ever do decide to tackle them. However the barrier isn’t only financial. Inertia is a factor as well. Getting projects this big into motion would take a huge amount of effort, since I no longer have a full support team in place, and we would have to gather an enormous team of actors. So for now I’m sticking to shorter projects with smaller cast. Even so, I haven’t given up on the idea of returning to the Circle World!
I to have asked this exact question! I was wondering if it’s not to rude to ask how much finding would be required to make it happen? I personally would be thrilled to help out as I’m sure many other fans would.
I am sad to hear this, your work with tamora pierce is fantastic.
Is there any way to be part of the effort to set this in motion?
An emailing list for kickstarter support, or even other kinds of help like possible talent?
I really would love to see this series finished in even a smaller cast format. Don’t get me wrong, the style of all the first books was lovely, but just keeping them going would be better then non completion. Is their any chance that you could do something in conjunction with Audible, and some of their full cast partners…? It might also give scholastic the push to get us the final book.
