Serial Box in partnership with BlackBoxTV proudly presents SILVERWOOD: THE DOOR from Brian Keene, Richard Chizmar, Stephen Kozeniewski, Michelle Garza, and Melissa Lason. Based on the web series by Director Tony E. Valenzuela.
Deep within the forest of Silverwood, California a dark force is working to open the door between dimensions—bad news for a Boy Scout troop and employees on a company retreat nearby. As their darkest fears and impulses feed the mysterious force, their bonding exercises take a deadly turn. Will anyone be able to keep their minds long enough to close the door before our world is torn apart?
Coming this October as a weekly audiobook and prose series.
So, that’s the official press release and trailer. Now I’ll answer some questions I’m sure will be frequent:
Q: What is Serial Box?
A: Serial Box is the HBO for readers. They publish weekly serials in audiobook and prose. The time it takes to read or listen to an episode is about 49 minutes, the same as an episode of a television show (without commercials).
Q: Is this a TV series?
A: No. It’s an audiobook and prose series. Each episode is 10,000 words (a short novella).
Q: So what am I pre-ordering?
A: You are preordering the entire series. Sign up for Serial Box, and when the series launches, you can listen to it or read it via their iOS app on your device of choice (Android app coming soon) or on the website. Even better, you can toggle back and forth between audio and prose. Read on the way to work, listen while at work, etc. You can listen or read in app or website.
Q: How much is the first season?
A: $13. That’s 10 episodes for 13 dollars.
Q: Who all is involved?
A: I’m the showrunner, and I wrote the first, eighth and tenth episodes (just like in television). Richard Chizmar, Steven Kozeniewski, and The Sisters of Slaughter wrote multiple episodes each (also just like in television). Our producer is Lydia Shamah. Silverwood creator Tony E. Valenzuela is our spirit guide.
Q: Do I need to be familiar with SILVERWOOD before this?
A: Not at all. This series has been specifically crafted for readers who are not familiar with Silverwood. However, long-time Silverwood fans will find PLENTY to get them excited! (If you watched the trailer, then it’s not a spoiler that Kristina is involved… and if she’s there, can her bear be far behind)?
Q: Okay, cool. But I’d still like to check out SILVERWOOD between now and then. How can I do that?
A: Oh, that’s easy. You can watch Season One for free on YouTube by clicking here. You can watch Season Two for free on YouTube by clicking here. And you can read the graphic novel for free by clicking here.
