Haunting Melissa Up for Appster
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.
