First: I want to congratulate all the Golden Heart and RITA finalists. I am so proud of all my fellow GSRWA (Greater Seattle Romance Writers of America) and Beau Monde (the Regency RWA chapter) members and Dorchester authors who finalled!
Second: I posted at The Season about my ideas for costume drama monster movies during my blog tour. Since then, I’ve discovered two (2) such movies! I can’t wait to see them.
1. “High Plains Invaders“!
A sci-fi western! How did I miss this when it came out? This is what I get for not keeping up with James Marsters’s (Spike from Buffy) career! Also, is that a robot, or an alien, or an alien robot or robot alien or what?
2. My friend Gwen Mitchell sent me this one:
It’s Les aventures extraordinaires d’Adèle Blanc-Sec, a new Luc Besson film. IMDb says it’s “an adventure set in the early party of the 20th century and focused on a popular novelist and her dealings with would-be suitors, the cops, monsters, and other distractions.”
Clearly the costume drama monster movie is An Idea Whose Time Has Come.
As a final note, Lori Lyn interviewed me (and a few other awesome Seattle romance writers!) for an article in the Emerald City Romantic Quarterly, which is the GSRWA newsletter. (I had some trouble with the online format, but if you can figure it out, my Q&A is on page 41. I talk about my workspace, my favorite comfort food, In for a Penny obviously, and also how I haven’t done my laundry or cleaned in a while because I haven’t really learned to manage having a full-time job AND being a published author AND having a social life yet. Gripping stuff, really.)
