Auto Shows, Screenplays, and Websites .

Auto Shows, Screenplays, and Websites … 

Now that winter and summer happen in the same week, do we need to change our clocks? Hmm … With one of the wackiest winters in the books, it’s time to wish everyone a breathtaking spring. Literally.
That said; there’s nothing better than cold weather to make someone stay home and work, and that’s just what we did. 
Let’s get to the nuts and bolts. 

Nathan Juju got a little restless sitting on the sidelines so they’re branching out on their own. 
It’s like this: A man named Jacob Fourzan started a one-of-a-kind Auto Show about a decade ago, and since then he’s managed to turn it into one the biggest auto shows in the Southwest. Literally thousands of people from NM, AZ, NV, CA, CO, and TX, now attend this show, and just when you thought it couldn’t get any cooler, he donates everything, every year, to a charity or organization that has something to do with human and animal rights. You Gotta …I repeat, GOTTA love that.
How do we tie in to an auto show?

Our very own Nathan Juju will be a sponsor this year. (Can I get a hell yeah out there?) We’re handing out hundreds of CDs, playing some games, doin’ that Social media thang, and sailing the big ol’ Nathan Juju banner. We’re wicked excited about being involved with this auto show, and PROUD help support the cause. The auto show is hereand if you can’t make it you can donate right hereBottom line: Too many children have been dealt a bad blow in this world. Investing in them is an investment in our future. Nuff said.

Hey … Mr. Tim Thompson is out that way. Maybe he’ll sing a Quitman Highway tribute at one of his gigs? What say you, Mr. Talented Tim? 

It's all in the DNA
It’s long been said, and, (ahem) known … that a Multimedia Trilogyshould have a Multimedia Website. Thank you, Mr. Winter, for giving us time to get that done. 
We’d love it if you took a peek at the new EKKO Mysteries Multimedia WebsiteIt’s packed with eye-catching videos, music clips, and story-telling galleries, all designed to keep words to a minimum. While you’re there, give your tired eyes a rest and listen  to our EKKO Audio Synopsis on the front page.
You know we love suggestions, so the best idea sent in about our website will receive TACOS FOR TWO. Now you’re wondering, “How the hell will they ship me some tacos?” It’s easy. We won’t. 
        We’re sending the winner $25.00 to choose your own tacos. 
                                                                                           How dat? 

Santa Monica
I squeezed in a trip to Fiji this winter. Okay, maybe Los Angeles, but it felt like Fiji compared to New York weather. I met some amazing industry peeps and pitched The EKKO Series Pilot  Follow the Stones to a few industry folks. 
While I was there I entered the Screenplay in some contests, one of which thought our Pilot was worthy of the February 2017 Critics Pick. They videotaped a live reading of the opening scene and posted it on YouTube. That was just cool. A mountain of shouts-outs to Brooks Crudup for his uber-talented collaboration on the book adaptation. 

Readings are kinda like oysters, an acquired taste, so if you happen to be a seafood fan then boogie on over to this link.  With a revised Pilot being edited and more pitching scheduled, we’re on our way to finding the right home for the EKKO series.

And who could leave LA without being a guest on Bob Dean’s Podcast
                               Not me. That’s who. (EP 3)

As more and more people climb aboard the EKKO train, we can’t help but feel honored. 
Gracie! Domo! Merci! Dankeshen! THANK YOU … for your support.
Get your sunscreen out and stock up on allergy pills cause warm weather is on the way. As you live your life to the fullest, please let us know what you’re up to. We love hearing from you.

From all of us to each of you, we send our very best!
Johnny Walker
