Sometimes we all need to just slow down and enjoy the weekend. At least that is
what I tell myself on weekends like this one where I've got a festival to
attend. As many of you know, Gwen is very involved with the film industry and
its festivals and this week is a big one in Dallas -- AFI DALLAS. If you follow our
Twitter feed you'll notice we've been talking lots about the films we're seeing.
Over the weekend the filmmakers come out and talk about the "making of the
films" which to be honest is where they grab me.
So today I'll get to learn about taking an idea (or story or book) from
conception to the big silver screen, or as the case more often these days to
either the Internet screen which can be biggish on the digital monitors or to
DVD. It's always interesting to see the parallels to the publishing of books.
don't miss the photos with very short blurb about the wonderful authors we met
in the past week: Suzanne
Arruda and Lisa
Lutz. If you can't get enough of Janet Evanovich (or you miss her early Plum
books) try "The Spellmans." A crazy family of private investigators in San
Francisco will shake your funny bone and sharpen your own sleuthing skills.
If you like me are one of those old Burroughs Tarzan fans and loved "Out of
Africa" give Suzanne Arruda a look over. Her 1920s Africa-set mysteries are
intriguing and great reads! It's a different time period then the usual and
well-researched. What's not to love about a strong woman pilot over the African
Well, until next time...
