Coming Attractions: A Movie and A Novel

October 14, 2009 By: larramiefg Category: Advance News, Books, Movies

Two popular authors shared exciting news last week and, if you missed it, here’s your opportunity to get caught up:

~ As you may remember Carleen Brice’s (Children of the Waters) debut novel, Orange Mint & Honey was optioned by the Lifetime Movie Network. About a month ago it was cast with Jill Scott as Nona Dixon and Nicole Beharie portraying Shay with the movie title changed to “Sins of the Mother.” Last Friday Carleen visited Vancouver where the film is being shot, then yesterday — Tuesday, October 13, 2009 — posted Pictures from Vancouver on the The Pajama Gardener blog. No news yet of an airdate, but please stay tuned.

~ Last Thursday Allison Winn Scotch (The Department of Lost and Found, Time of My Life) posted a picture too — that of her next book cover for The One That I Want being released June 1, 2010. The cover:

Here’s a brief synopsis: What if you could see into the future? What if you didn’t like what was revealed? Would you still choose to see it?

  1. Orange Mint and Honey was one of my best reads this past year. I passed it on to my daughters; they agreed. I was delighted for Carleen to hear that it was being made into a movie! My #2 daughter will, I am sure, be watching to see if the movie strays too far from the book.

    Since I enjoyed reading Allison Winn Scott’s first 2 books, I will put her third one on my TBR list as well. Once again, thanks for the recommendations, Larramie.
