Favorite Movies

I'm interested in learning your favorite movie. I don't go out to the movies. Can't remember the last time I even entered a movie theatre. It's easier to simply rent it directly on the TV. Though I do miss the popcorn from the theatre. You just can't get it like that anywhere else. The one good thing about watching movies at home, the pause button so you can go potty and not miss a scene.
The main things I don't miss about the theatre, people talking, cell phones ringing and sticky floors (oooohhh).
Occasionally, I find a great movie that I will actually purchase on DVD. There are some I wish I never spent the money on like Due Date. My son said it was funny. I didn't see it, couldn't even watch it to the end.
But there are a few that I can watch over and over and over.
Here's my list of favorites:
All four Shrek movies. If I'm sick, I curl up on the couch and do a Shrek marathon. my kids hate it.
Ever After
A walk in the clouds
Hell Boy I & II
50 first dates
True Lies
A Cinderella Story-my daughter & I watch this one together
The Proposal (love Betty White)
Lady and the Tramp
The Mummy I & II
George of the Jungle
Sherlock Holmes
Gone with the Wind - this is a given since I'm named after the plantation.

I'm sure I'm leaving something out. Hoping ya'll step and share you're favorites.
I'm always looking for a good movie.

Happy Spring!!!!

Happy First Day of Spring!!!!!

I read today that there is a big difference between the first day of spring and the first spring day.
This year, it's actually warm in New England on March 20th, but I remember many a snow storm on an April day. In fact, my husband and I bought our first house in the middle of a blizzard on April 1st. Apparently, we were the April Fools that year!

In my story SNOWY NIGHT SEDUCTION the main characters, Jake and Sera, are caught in just such a snow storm. They, of course, find all sorts of things to do to keep warm. Lucky buggers.

I've always felt Mother Nature has a sick sense of humor. I swear she gives us a few really nice spring days just to get our hopes up, the BAM! she slams us with a cold snap. I'm sure there are people in other parts of the country or world who have nice, temperate climates where Mother Natured doesn't slap them upside the head on a regular basis, New England isn't so lucky.

So, wherever you are today, I hope you have a chance to go outside and enjoy some nice weather, at least for a little while. If Mother Nature turns nasty, try Plan B and read SNOWY NIGHT SEDUCTION instead! hahahaha

California here I come!

California here I come! In eleven days I am leaving for the USA. Five days in San Francisco, Six days sightseeing in Los Angeles then on to the Romantic Times Convention. This vacation has been arranged since June last year and now with so little time left I am getting nervous. Those who know me may recall that last year I planned a much anticipated trip to New Orleans before the RT Convention. For almost a year I planned and organized and excitement built for a trip to a place I had always wanted to see. Then, disaster.

The damn Icelandic volcano.

I never got to see The Big Easy. In fact, I barely made it to the Romantic Times Convention. I got stuck in Ohio for an extra night on the way home while sick as a dog with tonsillitis and travelled for 24hrs in the same condition as we circumvented affected airports. In the end I had to travel the last 9hrs by coach and train.

So, as the time of departure ticks nearer this year it's perhaps understandable that I'm afraid to be excited. The earth seems to be a very uncertain place these days. Mother Nature has declared war and I am hiding in a ditch hoping she passes me by this time. Please keep your fingers crossed for me, I'd really appreciate it. All being well, I hope to see many of you in L.A. in a few weeks.

Betcha didn’t even know there was such a thing, did you? Well, there is and we’re going to celebrate it in style!

Ebooks have only been around a couple of decades and, as many of you know, have found acceptance only in the last few years. Dedicated readers are slowly giving way to multi-use mobile devices to the point where there are no more excuses for not having a book with you all the time. As long as you have your smartphone, Ipad, Blackberry or netbook, you have an entire library at your fingertips.

This week, the world sets some time aside to celebrate this accessibility. To help out, I’m offering a free download of Kara’s Captain, a tale of love that spans two centuries and two modes of reading. Robert Walton comes from the pages of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, Kara Godwin is the woman he hopes will save him from obscurity (read more in the sidebar). What better way to celebrate future than by reading a story that pulls together the past and the present?

To get a free download of Kara’s Captain, leave a comment sharing with us your favorite ebook of all time (and no, it doesn’t need to be one of ours). At 9:00 pm EST on Friday, March 18th, I’ll put all your names into a hat and my own handsome husband will draw not one, not two, but three lucky winners! Names will be posted here shortly thereafter.

Hooray for ebooks! Play safe,
