My name is Shane Lochlann Black. I'm a full-time science fiction and fantasy author. I've been developing a series called LadyStar since 1999.  My characters appeared in the first browser-based commercial video game ever sold.  They've also appeared in three other PC and mobile games, mobile apps, comics, novels, audiocasts, animated television and their own line of officially licensed apparel. 

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of LadyStar, I'm writing and producing a new animated series called Jessica Halloran and the Ajan Warriors which will be released in three-minute webisodes on YouTube and Facebook later this Fall.  I am assembling a new cast of voice actors and we're putting the series into production in September of 2018.  Our plan is to do "seasons" of 10 webisodes each, with a minimum of one new premiere a week. 

LadyStar is the story of seven girls who wear rings that can transform into magical weapons.  They journey across the realm of Aventar fighting the sorcerous Cryptics and their leader, the malevolent Lord Dane and his diseased sword Ochreus.   

I'd like to invite you to become a LadyStar Producer. Depending on your contribution level you can be a member of Team Update, or an assistant, associate or executive producer. You won't be making any decisions, but you do get official credits in the show. You can even share your credits on your social media profiles. They're official. Each reward tier combines with the others, so you get all the rewards below your contribution level too.  
  
Broadcast-quality animation costs about $6000 per minute of run time to produce. Your contributions offset the costs of better rendering computers, models, bookstore incentives and soundtracks. The more producers we have, the more episodes we can do, the more new characters and places the story can explore and the longer our episode run times can be.  Each of your contributions will help support up to four episodes.  When we get enough producers, we can start increasing our episode run times.  

Our show's first official sponsor is Enchanted Airship, a collection of some of the best middle-grade and young adult fiction available today. 

It really helps our project if you share our campaign on your social media accounts. Get your friends to join and tell them this is a chance to help us make something unique and fun!

We have five different book rewards are ready to give away now. We will also make behind-the-scenes previews of new episodes available as producer-only posts here.  You can also optionally join our mailing list to get the LadyStar newsletter.

I'll let Jessica and her friends take over from here.
