I love hearing good news and I’m always happy when authors share it with me. So, congratulations to Sheila Roberts for having her book make into a movie. Here’s her news: “My novel “On Strike for Christmas” is going to be a Lifetime movie, airing this December 5th. Needless to say, I’m excited about it and since this is such a fun chick story I thought maybe some of your posse might be interested in hearing about it. Lifetime should have a page up about it soon but meanwhile, here’s a link in case you need to check it out.” I’m a Christmas movie junkie, so I’ll be looking foward to it.
Debbie Macomber’s second installment in the Mrs. Miracle series, Call Me Mrs. Miracle can be seen on the Hallmark Channel on Friday, December 3rd. Last year’s Mrs. Miracle movie can be seen online at the Hallmark Channel website. Doris Roberts (Everybody Loves Raymond) stars as Mrs. Miracle.
Katherine Chloe Cahoon is using her debut novel, The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men for some very good causes. Events have been held at the University of Texas and Vanderbilt University with the help of sorority members. Proceeds from the UT event went to First Book, which gives new books to children in need. Katherine says, “Being an author, this was especially important to me.
When children do not have their own books, they miss important opportunities to develop their creativity and see the options life can hold for them.”
The VU event benefitted the Nashville Children’s Hospital and was called “Give the Kids a Shot at Life.” At both events, local singers donated their time and talents to entertain those who attended. Tonight Katherine will be in Chicago for a philanthropy book event with Northwestern University for CASA, a nonprofit group which helps children who have been abused and neglected. Several European male students at the university have volunteered to put on a show for the girls attending the event. It will be quite entertaining! (BTW, I did a Drive By Video with Katherine at the Emerald City Writers Conference and you have view it here.)
