Ever fantasized about how it would feel to have your novel optioned for TV or the big screen? Thanks to author and RWA chaptermate Amanda Stevens, whose wonderfully spooky Gothic tale, THE RESTORER, has just been picked up by ABC TV for series development (by the writers of OFF THE MAP and PUSHING DAISIES, no less), you, too can have a hilariously-illustrated picture.
So go ahead, check out her LOL blog and say congratulations. Or better yet, read a book I've been highly recommending to my friends for months.
Way to go, Amanda, and thanks so much for sharing your experience!

We welcome payola in the form of pies, cakes, neatly folded laundry and free books!
In accordance with FTC regulations, we're required to inform readers that we receive books from publishers, authors, and PR folk for review. We'd like to receive money via an offshore bank account, but that hasn't happened yet. When my dad was in radio back in the '50s, a local baker used to sneak over in the dead of night and fill the back seat of his car with bread and pastries. We would NOT object to this. Please review our review policy here. And let us know if we should leave the car outside the garage tonight.
Peace, love, and statutory compliance ~
