Special treat today! But first…
I have a guest post over at Susan Roebuck’s, with blogging advice for authors and some reveals about CassaFire. Head over when you are finished here. Not now! When you finish...
I was a little absent yesterday due to my job (I guess I really don’t get paid to blog – damn) and working on my next book. Yes, I have a detailed outline and I’m stoked!
Voting for your favorite book trailer starts SATURDAY at You Gotta Read Videos and CassaFire is one of the trailers! Please vote. I’ll even grovel and throw in Hot Tamales…
And here’s the answers to the movie quotes, which many of you got:
“The greatest trick the devil ever played was convincing the world he didn’t exist.” The Usual Suspects
“I call it blood, detective. I suppose you’ll write it up as ‘graffiti.’” The Crow
“Anything else that’ll keep this elevator from falling?” “Yeah. The basement.” Speed
Now to our main attraction, the lovely Brinda Berry, author of The Waiting Booth. She’s going to share with you two of my favorite things – movies and science fiction. (Awesome beyond words!) Hit it, Brinda!
While growing up, I read tons of romance books. I started out with the Harlequins and then progressed to the bodice-ripping, historical romances that I had to hide from my parents. The stories were good, but I can't tell you the names of 99% of those types of books I read. Then I began reading some science fiction. Did I read science fiction books first or fall in love with all the science fiction movies during that age? Chicken or the egg. It doesn't matter. All I know is I read my Star Wars paperback several times and dreamed of running away with Han Solo. Here are some great movies that influenced my interest in sci-fi.
These movies made me want to imagine adventures about traveling in space and getting up close and personal with technology. It's where my sci-fi interest began. What started it for you?
A missing boy, government agents, an interdimensional portal…Mia has one goal for her senior year at Whispering Woods High—find her missing older brother. But when her science project reveals a portal into another dimension, she learns that travelers are moving in and out of her woods in the most alarming way and government agents Regulus and Arizona are policing their immigration. Mia’s drawn to the mysterious, aloof Regulus, but it’s no time for a crush. She needs to find out what they know about her brother, while the agents fight to save the world from viral contamination. But when Regulus reveals that he knows Mia’s secrets, she begins to wonder if there’s more going on than she thought…and if she was wrong to trust him…
