IMONTHEBANDWAGON is two years old! It’s come a long way from the first few band conversations that were posted. From hitting over 10,000 subscriptions to being picked up by television production companies, to creating a free eBook that pulled in over 200,000 hits. So thank you for all of the support!

At the end of last year you may have seen me plugging the web series ‘MICKY’. The first 3 episodes pulled in over 30,000 hits. The 3rd episode especially did well, getting mentions on major comedy websites. There were supposed to another 3 episodes but it was snapped up by a production company. Now a major channel in the UK is looking at possibly commissioning 3 episodes to place on their website and we will get an answer in June. If that does well it will get a Pilot episode and then who knows!

So I’m calling on all the IMONTHEBANDWAGON fans to help put the word out and share ‘MICKY Episode 3′ with everyone and anyone so it can’t be ignored. If we manage to get a decent amount of hits in the next few weeks, I will release some new stuff, maybe even a new conversations with ‘The Band’, if you are lucky.

So re-blog it, Twitter it, Facebook it, anything you can think of and I will put out some new stuff. I will post the link underneath for you to share. It will open up in a new page.

GO!

A teaser for the upcoming web series, ‘MICKY’

After coming off the back of Unlucky Artist: Volume 1 , which amassed over 200,000 hits in its first week, I decided not to hang around…..

‘MICKY’ Is a brand new comedy web series that will go into production on Friday. It is a ‘mockumentary’ that is set in Derry, Ireland and it will be shown on YouTube. I can’t give too much away about the project at the moment, but when I have news about when the first episode will go live, I will share it with everyone else.

More to come!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

 

Well it’s finally here. After two and a half months in the making, it is ready. Unlucky Artist: Volume 1 is available free to download.

If it wasn’t for the followers on WordPress, I wouldn’t have got the success I have now or even be able to put this sort of project together, so I thank you. Please go to the ISSUU website and give it a good rating if you like it. I also recommend that you download it. It’s quite lengthy and it means you can keep coming back to it. We had last minute problems with the cover so it is a bit plain but really it is about the content.

Spread this far and wide and hopefully we can reach the target number of hits/likes/downloads to do some real damage. The link is below along with the link for the Tumblr site, where it can also be found.

Thank you.

It’s been a while since I gave you all a update so I have decided to give you a little sneak preview of the e-book that will be released next month.

Here is the link to the exclusive preview!  -> UnlcukyArtist

 

We tried Tumblr before and massively failed at it. So we are trying again. If you have Tumblr, follow this page. It will give new information about Unlucky Artist: Volume 1 and a few previews here and there.

Other exciting developments today that could involve animation. Won’t say too much because it’s brand new but it’s something to leave you pondering

Cheers

Well you have all be waiting very patiently and I think I’m ready to explain. I have been very busy since last Christmas sorting out this and that for different projects. I was originally scheduled to write a pilot for a production company and it was going to be shown on British television. This was axed due to different issues, mainly on the part of the production company. I went back to the drawing board and knocked a few ideas around, until I decided to return to the blog world and give something back to the fans that got me this far. So to you, I give you…….

UNLUCKY ARTIST: Volume 1 is a collection of scripts and comedy plans that were meant to be shown on TV. Instead I will be releasing them online as a e-book, for free. It will include a new spin on the Imonthebandwagon blog as well as brand new stuff. You won’t have seen anything like this before. It’s the comedy writers equivalent of a mix-tape and I will be putting it online on 24. 10. 12.

I know it seems a long way off but there are still things to sort out and I need to make sure it is as good as it can be before it goes out. There will be sneak previews here and there and I will keep everyone updated on any news. I will send out updates through Twitter, Facebook and imonthebandwagon.com. There will be a Tumblr page set up that will be exclusive from imonthebandwagon and will give details about the project.

It MAY signal the end of the Imonthebandwagon concept, I don’t know what the future holds for that. But it will give birth to new comedy that you just won’t find anywhere else.

Go nuts, Reblog, Retweet and Facebook it. UNLUCKY ARTIST: Volume 1 is coming
