First up, it's always nice to start the day with good news and today I'm thrilled to be able to say that Bella and Owen's story - my 7th Modern Heat - has been accepted! It'll be on the shelves as:
PLEASURED IN THE PLAYBOY'S PENTHOUSE
- I'll let you know the release dates later - YAY!!!!
Now, let's get on to the competition thing! You read the heading of this blog right? Yep, that's what Jude and I wanna know - which movie was it that had you crying buckets... that really hit you in a raw spot and made you bleed...
There's something about movies that make you cry - the experience can be wonderful - so cathartic! But I must admit I have a couple that made me cry to much I actually kind of hate them! ;)
So why are we wanting to know this when my books are usually sprinkled with humour over pathos?! Well for me, BOUGHT: ONE NIGHT, ONE MARRIAGE - the book up for grabs as part ofhte prize pack, is the first book I've written that's made me cry, my editor cry AND my mother cry - the trifecta!!! That's some feat you know ;) I've had combinations before, but not all three...
BOUGHT does have my usual funny spots, but there are just a couple of moments where - oh boy, have those hankies handy...
You'll have to flip over to Jude's Blog to see all about her movie picks!!!
Over the next few days I"ll post an excerpt from BOUGHT, and from Jude's "The Confetti Countdown", and detail some of the other prizes in our fabbo pack.
BUT YOU MUST ENTER!!!! Send me an email firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me the name of the movie that made you cry the most (and why if you want to!). Over the month we'll put snippets up from YOUTUBE (if we can) so it'll be a movie madness month! And on July 31st we'll draw the winner! So send 'em in and come and check them out!
To get the ball rolling, here's a snippet from one of my weepie movies (I have several!). This is from Truly, Madly, Deeply - it is heartbreaking as she learns she has to move on with her life - and he has to move on with his afterlife...I adore Alan Rickman... you know I've just spent the last half hour debating Youtube clips and here I am bawling! Just not sensible at 5 in the morning!!! In the end I settled on the trailer (the voiceover guy sounds a bit cheery but it's all good):
Now hop on over to Jude and see hers!!!
