Support Shakespeare - Sorta ;)

Most of us who are avid readers have read at least one of Shakespeare's works in our lifetime (or if you're me, you've read several). I found this great gig on IndieGoGo that involves a movie called "Hamlet's Ghost" that has the following byline:
"A modern Shakespearean actor must unravel a mystery that bring him face-to-face with enigmatic forces from the past AND future."

It sounds really good, and it's sure to have some great Shakespeare dispersed amongst all the action! Honestly, I'd love it if this was a book as well- what an interesting idea!

Regardless, this is a great opportunity to support: 1) the kind of independent film writing that incorporates great literature into it's storyline, and 2) the independent film industry, which is very similar to the independent publishing industry which has allowed so many of us writers the opportunity to share our books.

Join me in supporting this great project!


  1. I couldn't agree more with your blog. Ben Johnson said Shakeseare "was not of an age, but for all time." Let's do all we can to keep his writings at the forefront of our time. That is one reason I wrote "Hamlet's Ghost." I greatly appreciate your support of this endeavor.

  2. Thanks Walker! :) I'm always happy to support anything that supports literature, directly or indirectly. :)

  3. Hey, thanks for visiting my blog and for following! Yes, I agree. I'd like to win over you too in the IBBA, but it doesn't hurt to make new friends, like you said. I'm following you now too! =O)

  4. Jessica, I wanted to let you know that I posted a comment about your blog on the HAMLET'S GHOST Indiegogo site, and even though it was not a perk listed with the $1 that you contributed, your name will be listed in the Special Thanks section during the end credits of the movie. So, thank you again for your contribution and for helping spread the word!!!

  5. Thanks so much, Walker! I think you have a wonderful project and it is worth donating towards! :)
