Never let it be said that the Starbase crew does anything halfheartedly (well, except for those anger management retreats the Bajoran keeps going through…the redshirt turnaround is proof positive that someone isn’t putting much effort into listening).
Regardless, when we feel passionately about something, we go for the full-body plunge. No toe dipping here, faithful listeners! That’s why we were thrilled to be joined once again by the always delightful Suzie Plakson for her third visit to the Starbase (third time’s a charm, but she’s a joy every time!). Listen in as Suzie shares with us a bit of the back story behind her latest creative endeavor, The Return of King Lillian.
Described by Suzie as “an allegorical story for non-conformists of all ages,” The Return of King Lillian is a labor of love that Suzie has finally captured in proper form for telling. Now she needs our help to raise the funds to bring Lillian home.
Using Kickstarter, the world’s largest funding platform for creative projects, Suzie recently launched The Return of King Lillian fiction project. The goal of this project is to raise $7,500 to fund the creation of the eBook, the audio book (which will be recorded by Suzie), and an accompanying Web site.
The deadline for this Kickstarter project is May 10, 2012. Suzie’s almost halfway there now, but she needs our help to cross the finish line!
Every contribution helps, whether it’s a monetary donation, the sharing of this project with other Suzie fans, or even just well wishes sent Suzie’s way, either through her official Facebook page or her Web site. If she doesn’t reach her goal, however, please note that no funds will be deducted from your credit card. Kickstarter is an “all or nothing” kinda site.
So, do what you can, keep your fingers crossed, and we’ll keep you posted about Suzie’s progress!

This is what happens when the Admiral leaves the keys to the blog in the hands of that tricksy Bajoran…
So rumor has it that our favorite charismatic Klingon, that vixenish Vulcan, the Quintessential Queen Q, and the most audacious Andorian to ever grace the promenade of our humble Starbase has written a book! And she’d like your help to share it with you!
That’s right, Suzie Plakson has recently announced that she’s completed work on The Return of King Lillian, “a newfangled narrative with an old-fashioned feel. An allegorical tale for non-conformists of all ages.” In line with the modern multimedia experience, she’d like to release this as both an e-Book and as an audiobook performed…by her!
To help make it so (sorry, it needed to be said), Suzie has launched a Kickstarter page, to help her raise the funding for this fabulous project. Head on over to her project page, let her tell you more about the project, and then, if you can, help her reach her target funding goal! And if you can’t help with a donation, make sure to pass along the news to all your other groovy genre fan friends!
