Happy New Year to all!
Classics in Miniature was in Seattle for the Modern Language Assoc. annual conference where our DVDs were sold in the trenches on the Exhibit floor. I sold over 100 copies, made numerous serious contacts for speaking engagements and for sales of institutional copies to Language Departments. It’s a great place to speak directly with the experts who know the original Classic Works I am producing. Very exciting and fruitful.

BIG NEWS! We are entering into a cooperative arrangement for sales of QUIXOTE and FAUST with W.W. NORTON & COMPANY book publisher. This is a very fortunate occurrence to say the least as they are a large Independently owned book publisher with offices on 5th Ave. in NY, NY. Perhaps I won’t need to invent the wheel in regard to distribution so much in the future. Looking forward to a long partnership with them.
We also presented QUIXOTE at the NW PUPPETRY CENTER to an eager crowd of professional puppeteers and puppet enthusiasts. It is a magical place, anyone near Seattle should see the gorgeous theatre and one of their great live shows, it’s the home of the Carter Family Marionettes.

A few weeks remain on the Indigogo JOAN of ARC PUPPET FILM campaign. Go ahead and donate a few bucks if you are able. There are lots of perks you may want too. And even though it may not look like I will get to the finish line for this funding cycle, I can assure you I will find a way.
