I'm Not Dead . . . Really

Hey y'all. The TV season is well underway, and I have barely posted a thing. What is WRONG with me, you might ask? (And have been asking, if my email inbox is any indication.) Well... it's my daughter's first week in junior kindergarten, it's her first week with a new daycare, it's my son's first week with his new nanny, and my first week back to work after a year of maternity leave. Oh, and her first week at dance class (she's SO cute in a little pink leotard! This is very weird to me, because I was never into that frou-frou dance stuff as a child; I have all the grace of a newly born calf.)

And to add to all that, despite my earlier statement that I'd be writing a season 4/5 combined Lost book for fall 2009, I'm actually going to write a season 4 book after all, and have been spending my evenings madly writing. ACK!

Please stay tuned for reviews of Fringe, Gossip Girl, 90210, etc.

But in the meantime, I audibly gasped when I saw this news item this morning, and since then three people have sent it to me, so I thought I'd post. Joss Whedon has halted production on Dollhouse, claims there's "nothing to see here, people, just go about your day," and that he's simply reviewing scripts and production.

Uh... Firefly, anyone?

Oh please, Fox, do NOT eff this one up. I'm beggin' ya.

UPDATE: I meant to spark discussion on Joss Whedon, and it seems more people are talking about my book! (Thank you, by the way!) I have a cover for it, so I'll try to get it up soon and see what y'all think.

Nikki, your announcement about writing a new Lost guide made my day a little happier. I can't wait! Any idea when it will be released?

Jonathan said...

YAY FOR THE SEASON 4 BOOK!!! I hope my observations of the show have helped greatly in writing the book. I'm pretty sure they did!!!

Brian Douglas said...

Oh great, now I have to buy ANOTHER one of your books. Way to milk it, Nikki. :-)

Nikki Stafford said...

Emilia: thank you! That's very sweet... The idea is to aim for April (unfortunately, after season 5 has begun) but we're hoping to get it out even quicker. :)

Jonathan: Whenever you read a passage that's totally insane, you can be reassured it was influenced by you.

Brian: Aw, come on, we all know you've been stealing them. ;)

Looking forward to your thoughts on FRINGE. Saw the Whedon thing and knew there would be worries here.

Season Four book?! HOORAY!
I was hoping you'd come to your senses and do one already!

Yay!!! I'm so glad about the book. I look forward to it.

That just made me feel exhausted reading it, but it does explain your mysterious TIFF absence. We must talk soon.

Enjoy your time back at work, if that's the right word.

I look forward to your new book, knowing you won't lift any unauthorized text from fan blogs (and boy, is that becoming a bigger and bigger kerfluffle).

Um... Go Dollhouse!

Ryan said...

When I first read the Dollhouse bit, I thought that Fox had already shut the show down! Haha, as if they thought, "Run the pilot? Nah. We're over it already."

But I'm glad to see that it's (hopefully) nothing.

The explanation offered in the story -- Whedon's directed the first couple of episodes himself, so the next few scripts aren't quite done yet -- sounds plausible to me. I'm not worried.
