Welcome to the Mavens' First Anniversary Jamboree!
Thanks so much for hanging out with us the past year. We've enjoyed sharing successes, frustrations, and milestones. Here's to another year! We've asked our favorite authors to answer some burning questions and every day this week we're giving you the inside scoop. Be sure to read the bonus question and answer Monday through Thursday for the chance to win fabulous prizes. And please, share your own answers...if you dare!
What summer movie are you most excited to see?
The Mummy! Adore Brendan Fraser! Jet Li rocks!
Be sure and stop by August 6 when Angie guest-blogs with us upon the release of her first book, The Accidental Demon Slayer on July 29! And if you'll be in San Francisco at RWA, stop by the literacy signing Wednesday night and say hello!Indiana Jones, hands down. I have loved those movies ever since I was a kid. You just can't beat Harrison Ford with a bull whip. Zow.
Well, in Oz, we're in the depths of winter, but the film I'd love to see is Prince Caspian. I thought The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe was fantastic, really magical. And hey, PC himself looks rather cute - LOL.
Tanya Michaels, author of A DAD FOR HER TWINS, a "State of Parenthood" book from Harlequin American Romance, in stores Sept 08! (Tanya's also a speaker at RWA this year!)
Indiana Jones 4, which we saw opening weekend. My son is six and a half and it's fun to see him as jazzed about Doctor Jones as I used to be! We wore our matching hats to the movie. My husband pretended not to know us. I'm also looking forward to Hancock.
Elissa Wilds, debut author of Between Light and Dark, in stores October 08!
Sex and the City….loved that show!
Teri Brown, author of READ MY LIPS, her debut novel released June 3!
I'm not actually excited about any of the movies I've seen the trailers for so far. I'm not really into action flicks and not into kids movies, so there doesn't seem to be anything up my alley this summer. Maybe the Thanksgiving movies will be better!
OMG just one? Ummmm Wanted or er The X-FILES …ohhhh and Hancock or maybe
Jennifer Haymore, debut author of A Hint of Wicked
Wall-E, because my kids really want to see it!
MAMMA MIA. I saw the show on Broadway and I love Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan and especially Colin Firth! I can't wait!
Mamma Mia (It stars Colin Firth AND Pierce Brosnan!)
Roxanne St. Claire
WALL-E has really captured my attention. I love the idea that the writers seemed to have broken all the "rules" for animated movies - no celeb voiceovers, no cute furry sidekicks, almost no dialogue, an apocolyptic futuristic setting, and yet, there is romance and redemption. Can't wait!
Check out Debra's YA story in the WITCH HIGH anthology coming in October. Debra's Belle Books has great summer titles available and is excited about the launch of Belle Bridge Books.
Can't wait for THE DARK KNIGHT. Of course we also said that about IRON MAN and GET SMART. And yeah, I'm looking forward to the newest in the MUMMY franchise. I'm an action flick girl. What can I say?
Wanted - just for James McAvoy.
The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor. The previews look incredible, and Brendan Fraser still looks hot. :-)
"Get Smart" because it'll take me back to my childhood. I used to love that show!
Sex and the City
