Indie Web Series AFK Needs Your Help!

Elves, and Orcs, and Rangers—OH MY!

Making a public appeal for support today. Not for myself (although, you’re welcome to buy my books) but for a free web series that kicks ass and takes names.


All you have to do is give it your vote. It's not even competing against other shows!

This is a brilliant show that takes one of the what-if scenarios from our modern culture, and really extends it through the story: What if you could actually go into that computer role-playing game that you love so much? There are a number of movies and series that have already explored this—Tron, Sword Art Online, Ready Player One—but what’s great about AFK is how it delves into the real-world issues of putting people into a fantasy computer game.

What happens to your old life? What if you have kids or people who depend on you? How did you even manage to get into the game in the first place?

How do you get home?
They'd do it for you!

The bloody, awful truth is that being in a computer game would be freaking scary. Mobs and big bads would be everywhere. There are always people who are going to be jerks, or make life hard because “reasons.”

AFK doesn’t pull any punches on these. The world-building is fantastic, and the characters—both “good guys” and “bad guys”—are interesting and fun to watch and root for.

AFK is trying to get its third season greenlit. All they need are fan votes.  They’re over half-way to the goal of 3,000 votes, and it costs nothing but a few clicks to give them your support.

Then, go watch the web series.  Totally free, totally fun, and well worth your time.

Did you watch the show? Who is your favorite character?
