One For The Money!
I just found out they're making a movie of Janet Evanovich's "One For The Money" Yay! Katherine Heigle will play Stephanie Plum and Sherri Shepherd will play Lula. I saw the pictures on-line and the "movie" Stephanie looks exactly as I imagined she would. The picture I saw of Sherri as Lula is hysterically funny. Can you even imagine writing a series so terrific that the thought of bringing all those familiar characters to life on the big screen actually makes people happy?
Another book I'd like to see optioned is, "The Help" I loved the story and all the women in it, especially Minnie. I'm a sucker for a good "...woman overcomes adversity story." When I wasn't reading it I was thinking about it. So many books, so little time. Sigh
I'm about to enter "Listen and You Shall Hear" into the 2010 Marguerite McGlinn NATIONAL PRIZE FOR FICTION AWARD contest. I have to start somewhere and the Philadelphia Stories site is a very friendly place so, I might as well go there first. More info on that later.
Have to go write my 50 words for today.
