I know we said we were making a movie, but after much discussion with the team, and a long pause thanks to COVID-19 which gave us time to think about it, we have decided that Unfinished Business is the perfect story for a TV series.
A movie would have been cool, but it would have been a "one-and-done" kind of thing.
A series will do the book much more justice!
The goal of this campaign is still to raise funds for the project - beginning with the pilot episode "Kilroy Was Here."
Unfinished Business is the story of Meg Seabury - a mortician who, through an unexplained phenomenon, finds herself compelled to follow through on the dying thoughts of the bodies she embalms.
Since its release, the most common response I've gotten from people about the book is that it would be perfect for adaptation as a TV series.
Using funds from this campaign, along with grants, and money from private investors, we will create the pilot episode of Unfinished Business for independent release - afterward, depending on how well it is received and our financial situation we will continue filming more episodes!
The cost of a quality cast and crew is high, along with equipment, transportation, props, and everything else associated with film making - but with your help we will deliver a finished product that will take Unfinished Business to the next level.
The production team and I are very excited about this project and confidence is high that it will be successful.
There have been many major developments in the past two weeks including the addition of an established Hollywood director and several well known actors!
Stay tuned for more on that...

Thank you for taking the time to consider my campaign. If you can't donate, please consider sharing this page on your social media sites. Also - please do whatever you can to support independent authors everywhere. There is a gold mine of quality writing out there and it would be nice to have some of it brought to light rather than being force-fed the same old stuff.
Thank you for your support.
Stay tuned for a video introduction of Team Meg!!
