What an emotional adventure.  We made it, we didn't and then we made it again.  It had all the makings of a great movie -- only it's going to be a television pilot ;)

Celebrate!  Happy dance, happy dance, happy dance!

Have a great Thanksgiving weekend for those of you in the states.  And get ready for all the Countessa you can handle!

I'm baaaaaaaaaaaack!

Meanwhile I'll be building up my bravery for my sexy challenge showdowns with the supernatural!

We're less than a day and a half away from the Kickstarter deadline!  It's been an emotional roller coaster so far and I'm hoping we end on a high note <3

The latest video is out.  It's fun, it's sexy, it's campy!  It encapsulates everything America in the Shadows is about except for the scary.  You'll just have to keep waiting for that part ;)

Give it a watch!

 I will post some photos in a later update!
