Commit Yourself To The Brink

Just wanted to let you guys know about the awesome new project from 7th Son podiobook author and podcaster J.C. Hutchins.

This June, his novel-meets-Alternate Reality Game project, Personal Effects: Dark Arts, hits bookstores. Created with ARG and gaming maestro Jordan Weisman, this spooky supernatural thriller chronicles the adventures of art therapist Zach Taylor as he quests to unlock the psychosis of an blind alleged serial killer. Taylor works at Brinkvale Psychiatric Hospital ... a facility with such a bloody history, locals call it "The Brink." Items that come WITH the book -- including photos, busines cards and more -- will propel you into an "out of novel" narrative, which has its own plot twists.

CSI TV series creator Anthony E. Zuiker calls it "the future of storytelling." Director Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean, The Ring) hails it as "compelling." Final Destination writer Jeffrey Reddick says it's "impossible to put down."

You can learn more about Personal Effects: Dark Art -- and what other pros are saying about it -- at . (You can even pre-order a copy if you'd like to support the project before it even comes out.)

In connection with the release of this project, and based on the firm belief that everyone benefits when the community itself is being creative, J.C. has announced a first-ever in publishing designed to get you involved in the world of Personal Effects: Dark Art. Welcome to Commit Yourself To The Brink.

You -- and your friends and family and followers -- can actually become a part of the Personal Effects universe, and a patient of Brinkvale art therapist Zach Taylor. By visiting a special page at J.C.'s website -- -- you can create a patient profile (complete with backstory), receive your admittance papers, contribute artwork … and earn the insanely cool privilege to appear in Brinkvale’s patient artwork gallery ( ). The first "art assignment" is already online, and -- as always -- it doesn't cost a penny to participate. You need not be an "artist" to do this; just crack out the Crayolas, get scribbling, and scan (or snap a photo of) your work! Submit your art and patient profile at the page linked above.

Angel Between the Lines Auditions are Open!

Angel Between the Lines is proud to announce our open casting call for voice actors for Season 1. If you’ve always wanted to join the cast of the Between the Lines productions or if you’d like the opportunity to do some voice acting, you’ve come to the right place.

>> For information AND to find out which roles we’re auditioning for please click here. <<

The first season of Angel Between the Lines deals with the summer between AtS Season 3 and Season 4. Join the gang as they deal with Angel and Cordelia's disappearances and stick around for the season finale: Angel - the musical! (We're not even kidding). This season consists of 12 episodes and a lot of surprises along the way.

Angel Between the Lines is an audio drama that takes place between the seasons of Angel the TV show. We have a cast/crew from all around the world (so you do NOT need to be in Los Angeles to audition). There are many roles that we’re casting (not just the ones that we have audition lines for). We also need some different dialects and accents - so please make sure to try out if you’re in any way interested. If you don’t fit the characters we’re looking for please still audition using the “General” lines.

This is a work of love, no one makes money off of this production. We’ve had rave reviews for Buffy Between the Lines and can’t wait to do it again for Angel!
