Well it finally happened! My fab agent Rachelle Gardner arranged for a meeting with the wonderful Suzanne Jaskow of Unsupervised productions last week and we had a fantastic time!!!
First, I had never been to the Fox studio lot before so already I knew I was in for an adventure. The lot was huge and gorgeous. There were beautiful wall murals on the sides of the studio buildings, gorgeous topiaries at every turn, and the entire lot had an old Hollywood feel.
The day went something like this: meet Rachelle at the mall. Fun, right? Head over to Fox together. Trek across miles of what feels very much like a college campus. Locate the awesome office of my wonderful producers and find the wonderful, amazing, Suzanne! Head over to the caf for a lunch of salads and diet coke. Zip my lips so nothing ridiculous has the chance to escape. Mostly listen, but interject when extremely necessary and enjoy a heavenly conversation of all things film, movies, and TV!
What about Celestra? We touched on that, too. Right this minute the project is with a writer who is working to convert it into a pilot!!! Exciting, right? Evidently these things take time, lots of time, but that’s perfectly fine with me. I’ve got all the time in the world, and I’d love to see it happen.
We talked a little further about the project and potential sales channels were mentioned such as CW and MTV. <----- Pretty awesome, right?
After lunch, Rachelle and I walked around the lot for a while and even paid a visit to the gift shop where I splurged on a 20th Century Fox coffee mug that I’ve been using religiously ever since. ;)
Book updates! I’ve finally concluded my endless polishing marathon of EPHEMRAL and am ready send it off to the editor and betas this week! *breathes *
Also in the back of EPHEMRAL I’ll be debuting a new series that is not even remotely Celestra related and I’m super happy about that. I was thirsting for a book that I could unleash my inner snark on and I think I’ve found it. *hopes* I cannot wait to share Talon and Levi with you, also Vampires are involved. An insanely good time is being had by me and my keyboard.
As for Celestra, I am now all about TOXIC Book 7 and am 1000% committed to walking Skyla and friends to the e-book store later this summer. I’m planning to dedicate every hour in June shaking, scraping, polishing that book until it glows in the dark. Hopefully by the end of the month I’ll be ready to send it off for edits. It’s a long book but I’m ready for the challenge.
As soon as I hit publish on TOXIC, I’ll be penning book 8 and once that’s done, I’m jumping right into the new series with Skyla. I hope you’ll join me. This wild ride is not nearly over.
Have any burning questions? I'll be glad to answer if I can.
