Celebrate the Small Things
“Celebrate the Small Things” is hosted every Friday by VikLit.
This week I celebrate a breakthrough on my third book’s back cover synopsis, thanks to Rusty Webb. I still haven’t been able to make the appropriate changes because my publisher returned my manuscript this week and I’ve been working on the revisions. But that’s cool – CassaStorm is one step closer to reality!
February Movie Preview
Here are the upcoming movies for February! As always, descriptions courtesy of the IMDB. Snarky comments by me.

Watching a sixty-six year old man kick ass teeters between impressive and sad.
A pair of aging con men try to get the old gang back together for one last hurrah before one of the guys takes his last assignment -- to kill his comrade.

Stars: Al Pacino, Alan Arkin, Christopher Walken, Julianna Margulies
Dig that Alan Arkin – the guy is hilarious.
A woman turns to prescription medication as a way of handling her anxiety concerning her husband's upcoming release from prison.

Guessing this isn’t the feel good movie of the year.

However the preview says – not so much.
A father goes undercover for the DEA in order to free his son who was imprisoned after being set up in drug deal.
Director: Ric Roman Waugh
Stars: Dwayne Johnson, Susan Sarandon, Jon Bernthal, Rafi Gavron
The Rock doesn’t have the best track record with movies. This film probably won’t change that.
