Well, this makes me appy!  The hipsters at the Appsters have nominated Haunting Melissa for an Appster award as Best Entertainment App of the year. The awards are given out at a gala in London, October 22nd. All props to producer Neal Edelstein who created this original method of delivering a filmed ghost story to your i-device — and even some props to me who wrote the script for it. It’s really a brilliant new way to tell an old-fashioned tale of terror. Take a look at the trailer:

If you haven’t downloaded Haunting Melissa yet, you really are missing out — do it here. The app — and the first few episodes — are free. After that, it’s some three hours of spooky content for much less than a movie. Very good stuff. And personally, I’m betting this Appster nomination is the first of many.
