SANDITON, CA – Spend a summer by the sea in the oddball beach town of Sanditon, California. Our citizens are friendly, our business opportunities plentiful, and our grounding in reality… variable. Whether you play a resident or someone passing through, Sanditon has plenty of romance, art and intrigue for everyone. Based on Jane Austen’s final unfinished novel Sanditon, and the Pemberley Digital transmedia series Welcome To Sanditon. Adapted by co-creators and The Lizzie Bennet Diaries veterans Margaret Dunlap (The Middleman, Eureka) and Jay Bushman (Airship Dracula, Dirty Work).

Storium — The Online Storytelling Game by Storium / Stephen Hood » New stretch goals: N. K. Jemisin and Sanditon, CA! — Kickstarter

Yup, Sanditon is back! We’re the latest stretch goal announced for the hugely successful Storium kickstarter.

The campaign is in its final day, so you only have a short time to help reach the unlock goal. WWJD*?

A message from the mayor

Fellow Sanditonians! I cannot tell you how excited I am to announce that our little town has been recognized by the International Association of Web Television. Pemberley Digital’s Domino beta test, Welcome to Sanditon, has been nominated for an IAWTV Award for best Social Media/Interactive Experience. (I was going to tweet out the news earlier, but once I typed out the category, I’d pretty much run out of characters for the rest of the message.)

Here at the mayor’s office, we couldn’t be prouder of all of our residents. You all helped make the beta test a great success, and I’m so happy to see that recognized. So as you see each other at the Cinematheque, on your way to the spin gym, or at Clara’s ice cream shop, give yourselves a hearty congratulations!

See the full list of nominees.

Already three months since I arrived in Sanditon for my holidays. 
(Haven’t you as many days of vacation as I have? Well, you should definitively consider changing job. ;-) )
 To come back to my stay in Sanditon, I am enjoying it so much, you cannot imagine. I am crazy about this town. There are so many activities and amazing people. You are never getting bored in Sanditon. 
In the morning, I usually join the class at Sanditon Yoga Studio. I regularly meet Susan Parker there. After the class, we go for some ginger tea at Sanditon Tea. Diana and Arthur Parker join us time to time. I share buttered toast with Arthur (his sisters are quite horrified about it)! We chat about inner balance and diet, comment the latest news from the Sanditon Sun.
Then, I spend the rest of the morning either at the Robyn Worth’s library or at the Sanditon Historical Society.
I am a member of the Book Club Readiton, so I had a bunch of books to read this summer and to borrow at the library. I have spent hours in this library. I love books. Having a book in my hands is the most agreeable thing: the smell of book, turning the pages, diving in a story, eating the words of each sentence, so nice, right? 
I also like History, and the Historical Society always had great conferences talking about Sanditon’s past. It is inspiring to learn about the origin and the evolution of a city and its people, its traditions.
At lunch, my friends from the Food Trailer Gang usually feed me. I have written about them before, so I won’t develop more here.  I am only going to write again: ”Viva Hashtag Fat Sanditon”! 
For the dessert, I go to Sanditon Scoops or to Sanditon Cupcakes: OMG, the best ice creams and cupcakes of the world are here in Sanditon!! So, go get a scoop or a bite. J
Then, I usually go to Sanditon Beach or Sanditon Garden or to the Denham Square, where the 4 Mayor Edward Denhams’ statues stand majestically. I read, write or paint, depending of my mood and motivation.
Time to time, I take part in a demonstration organized by SaveSanditon to object on some choices made for the city. Occasionally, I am going to a tour planned by Sanditon Tours. If the weather is too windy, I am hanging at the Sanditon Mall or the Sanditon Aquarium (I am fascinated by the behavior of seahorses). 
Today, I did something different: I went to Sanditon Comics, owned by Mr Cray – such a lovely dude- and he helped me to choose the right comic for the birthday of my nephew. I just need to stop by the post office to send it with the nice postcard “Welcome to Sanditon”.
That it is more or less how I spend my afternoons. 
Then, I go back to my room at Sandnation to watch some TV: “Sanditon Abbey”, “Pretty Little Sanditonians”, “Sanditon Who”, “Once Upon a Sanditon”, and so many other great shows!
Later, I meet some friends at SandBar or SanditonClub. Now and then, the famous star Lucille Luz comes there to “spread her love”, as she says. She’s really nice. If there is a special event, like a wine tasting, a bachelor party, a ball, movie night, I am always motivated and happy to join the party!! Of course, on Thursday, I go to craftnight. I am not so much a crafter, but I always have a great time there, laughing, joking, chatting, domino-ing with all my sanditonian friends, and teasing Ed on his crafting skills – even if I have to admit that I would not do better than him. At least, he is trying. Love, you know.
To resume, the life in Sanditon is relaxed, funny, and fantastic. I want to buy an apartment here, as a second residence. I just need to find a building that is not under construction. Now, that I am thinking about it, I actually prefer the style of the old sanditonian houses, so I probably get one of those 19th-century villas. I hope it will be “bank-approved”.
Let’s see what the future will be. See you around,

Saw Blue.
