Release day is ALMOST here!

I was hoping to get Darian’s War released earlier this week, but that didn’t happen. However, I’ve proofed both the print and e-versions, and am just waiting on the final files and artwork files, then however long Amazon and Createspace take to process. I haven’t seen the boxed set stuff yet….. I realize other people celebrate Thanksgiving, too, so I’m trying to be patient! (Not my strong suit!)

I hope you all had a happy Thanksgiving, and that you’re not killing yourselves trying to shop. I don’t shop this time of year, since I don’t like crowds, but my daughter’s in-laws were out in the wee hours of the morning. Stay warm and safe!

Christmas-Countdown1I’m going to have some free days and sales going on around Christmas and New Years, so stay tuned!

My Top Ten Favorite Movies

​I am not the type of person that stays up on the newest movies coming out. I rarely go to the theatre, I rarely watch TV to see previews. If a preview pops up on Facebook, that is how I see them. Often my sister will say she rented a movie and I will have no idea what she is talking about, even if it is a movie I wanted to see. BUT I do have my favorites, and they will show my true geek colors.

  1. Star Wars ~ I am sure many people will scoff when I say I didn’t like Star Wars until the newer ones came out. Honestly, when the original ones were out I was too young to even remember them. When my mother and brother used to watch them, I was too young to be interested in them. It wasn’t until the new ones came out that I realized what I had been missing.
  2.  Dune ~ I love the sci-fy channel version of this movie. The original one was silly to me because I haven’t read the books, and I the movie seemed to graze over important elements that would fill in the story for me. The sci-fy channel one had that detail in it that made you feel like you were actually watching a story of a different world.
  3.  The Wizard of Oz ~ I love this movie. It is one of my all-time favorites. I would be lying if I said I didn’t side with the Witch though.
  4.  Star Trek ~ This is the new ones. I think this series will go the way of Star Wars for me. I have only watched a couple of the old movies, and that was in response to how much I loved the newer ones. Into Darkness was just so amazing in my book.
  5.  The Little Mermaid ~ I get picked on for this movie all the time, but I really do love The Little Mermaid. When I was younger I wanted to donate my body to science so they could MAKE me a merman. Now I don’t want to do that, instead I will just have to write about them.
  6.  The Perks of Being a Wallflower ~ Awesome movie. In fact, I need to read the book after watching the movie. It just made me feel so happy and reminded me of friends and times past.
  7. The Rocky Horror Picture Show ~ I laugh every time I watch “Sweet Transvestite.”
  8.  Hedwig and the Angry Inch ~ It has been compared to Rocky, but I don’t think there is really any similarity. It was a movie my cousin recommended to me, and when I was first watching it all I could think was “What on Earth am I watching?” At some point during the movie (I can’t remember exactly when) I fell in love with it.
  9.  Interview with the Vampire ~ I loved this book, and I loved the movie. Surprisingly, it was one of the few Tom Cruise movies I enjoyed, and I think he did a great job as Lestat.
  10.  Legend ~ Yet another Tom Cruise movie I love. BUT I don’t like the uncut version with all the singing and dancing.

So those are some of my favorites. What are yours?
