If you are in Houston, TX or heading to Houston for ComicPalooza 2015 then be sure to visit the Legend of the Seeker fan table organized by Bethany Griffith of Confessed4Life. A few more details are available on Facebook.
Sam Raimi was the Executive Producer for Legend of the Seeker. He is currently the person in whom the LOTS fan community is most interested because Sam has the clout and the experience to make a killer movie. He did a great job with three “Spider-man” movies and he did a great job with “Oz the Great and Powerful”. So no one can say that Sam Raimi doesn’t know how to make major box office hits. Earlier this year Craig Horner told fans that “There’s more chance of a #LOTS film than a third season and Sam Raimi could make it happen.” Read the rest of this entry »
There is a convergence in the Fandom. A very unintentional but nonetheless timely convergence, I might add. I have been devoting so much time for work projects the last few months I haven’t really made time for my fandom interests.

It has been too long since I was able to devote much time and effort to helping fans keep interest in a “Legend of the Seeker” revival alive. The last news I had from Laura Ventura was that a proposal for a film is in the works, and she hasn’t updated Save Our Seeker with any disappointing announcements since then, so I hope that’s a good sign.
Meanwhile, my schedule is a little more flexible this month so I have been publishing some Tweets under the @seekerfans account. Not looking for any trending here, so I just use #LegendoftheSeeker and #scifi and #fantasy. People do searc on these hash tags:
All I ask today is that you schedule a daily Tweet from your accounts. Link to your favorite fan site, or to a Legend of the Seeker fan video on YouTube, or a gallery on Pinterest, or a Tumblr fan site, etc.
Share the world of Seeker Fandom with your friends and strangers. And don’t be discouraged because no television network can take that world away from you.
The chances of bringing back a full multi-season television show based on Terry Goodkind’s Sword of Truth novels have faded mostly because the principal actors have accumulated many commitments over the past four years. But hope has been kept alive by a small cadre of fans who have organized events at conferences, letter writing campaign, and social media collaborations.
More than 15,000 fans have signed a petition for SMGO.TV to win their support for bringing the show back into production. (That link, btw, points to a Google cache image of the page — I am receiving a 502 Gateway error when I try to bring up the page directly).
