Can't sleep tonight so thought I'd take the time to get caught up.
NYPinTA has given me a new obsession. Well, not really an obsession...an interest? That's taking up more of my time than it should? And I'm spending money on it...? Okay. Maybe it is an obsession. I'm talking about Sookie Stackhouse. The books are like a big plate of brownies. You sit down and think you'll read just one and then boom - you've devoured the whole plate and didn't realize it. I'm working on book seven. I'll get back to you when I've read more.
I'm writing book reviews for Fictionaddict.com. It's really cool and I'm having a ball doing it. I've gotten some awesome books and the opportunity to do some interviews as well. (Nicholas Sparks. Who ever would have imagined that eh?)
I've also sold a screenplay. Or mostly sold it. Contracts are currently pending. I've signed and returned mine. Just waiting for everyone else to join the party. They have 365 days to make the film before rights revert back to me. From what I've heard, they're ready to start filming in like a month - so I have a lot of hope that this will happen. Still, it's a million bajillion contracts yet before anything further can happen and I know how this business runs. I'm really jazzed about this one because I'll be on set for the filming and they've said they want to hire me for the marketing too. It's a bigger budget than I'd hoped and I'm really *fingers crossed* that we get some excellent names on board. I'll keep you guys informed on that one.
And that's about it. What's happening in internetyland for everyone out there? Fill me in!
