Then step on over to Facebook, if you have an account, and give the Ben Browder Wiki page a "Like". The FB Wiki Page is linked to the Wikipedia database and is not to our knowing controlled by Mr. Browder. Still, it's a place on FB to show some interest in his career so that TPTB will see it.
Ben does not have any personal or professional presence on Facebook or Twitter that he controls. Don't fooled by imitators.
Well really, the first part of his message is tongue-in-cheek so don't let it discourage you. It may also be a flavor of the 'voice' of Naught for Hire.
The second part of his message is the straight shot.
"[...]Hollywood is a cruel mistress, who just when you think you’ve got her figured out, rears back and crushes your hopes and dreams like the stale end of a cigarette butt that’s burnt deep into the filter, under the stiletto end of her ruby red high heel shoes. And yet, no matter how many times she breaks your heart, you still answer her every call, nipping at her feet like a lost puppy who was kicked to the curb yet managed to find his way home after several cold, damp nights of bitter desperation, clinging to every tiny morsel of affection commonly referred to in this town as encouragement.
[...]Hollywood may own us, but they will never break us".
December will be a busy month for the world of Naught and we'll keep you up to date on all the news that is Naught's, fit to print.
In part four of Midnight Oil Production's series Jason and Jeffrey talk about writing, producing, adapting projects from novels and writing with a partner among other things. Check out the interview at Midnight Oil Production's website.
John shared a good deal of info about Naught for Hire. He talked about Ben Browder's involvement in Naught - producing, writing -, show sponsors and the producers' desire to see the show as a franchise (Nick Naught action figures maybe? - just an idea Jeffrey) among other things.
You can find the recorded interview at the Machine Readable Website sponsored by Arapahoe Library District.

On September 17, 2011, John E. Stith, creator of Nick Naught (Naught for Hire), was the guest at the Denver Area Science Fiction Association (DASFA) at the Broadway Book Mall in Denver, CO. The DASFA has been meeting monthly since 1974.
John read the prologue and excerpts from several scenes from his novelette All for Naught to a group of about 20 people then opened the floor to questions. He mentioned that comments on religion had been edited from the current edition of All for Naught. The characters in the world of Naught were named after John's friends and acquaintances and this is the only time he ever did such a thing. The last name Naught came from a friend whose last name is McNaught.
Fan support is crucial and thankfully ours is unwavering under the guidance of Naught Stuff who holds his candles high to illuminate genre activities. The production staff of Naught for Hire remains very grateful for the efforts of the fans. Activities on The Agency website and Facebook make the wait for word of production go-ahead less frustrating. Just remember, as one producer/writer has said; getting a script or series produced is such a miracle that each time it happens another angel gets his/her wings. Well, Naught for Hire inches its way towards the goal of being green lit without the benefit of Charlie or George, but it does have Paramount.
