Have You Ever Imagined...

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!

Thanks, Colleen! If only I didn't have to return to the real world of deadlines so soon. I'd much rather play with animated gifs, lol.

It's tough going back to the real world, isn't it?

Thanks, Amanda, for letting us like vicariously through your experience. And Joni's right. It couldn't happen to a nicer or more deserving person!
