Badurday- February 2, 2013- New Release

It seems all I do is talk about new releases. I’ve been on a short story kick lately and this one that released this week is no exception. In fact, the one that I’m going to chat about here is under 40 pages. The final editor even left me a comment that said she loved it so much that she wished it was longer. I’m thrilled with that since I’ve been going through another one of those spells about if I’m spinning my wheels! LOL! We writers and our angst about being good enough, huh?

This story is set in the 1920s and the characters are named after my great-grandparents who I loved dearly. This is a mystery/romance and I hope the readers love it as much as I do. The cover is awesome and the cover artist, Dawne Dominique nailed my vision of this story.

In 1924, Carver Fowler, a young man raised on his family’s farm in North Alabama, has long been in love with one of the girls who lives in town. Her name is Mallie Phillips. Mallie has always treated Carver as beneath her notice since in her opinion he’s nothing but a country yokel. The county’s fall festival is soon and, as a joke, Mallie is dared by a friend to ask Carver to be her date to the party. Mallie takes her up on the dare and visits Carver to invite him to accompany her to the festivities. In the midst of all the intrigue about whether Carver will be her date or not, a young man is killed and another is attacked. Carver becomes a suspect and Mallie begins to understand that Carver may not merely be the backwoods boy she thought he was.

Special Edition of Bad-urday for Easter

I’m going to talk a bit about this actor and tell you a few things he was in- He’s not really a bad boy but he is dead sexy – Then, I’ll tell you why he’s the Easter edition-

Many of my friends know how much I would hate to be Jessica Fletcher’s friend (you know, the Murder, She Wrote woman?) because if you’re her friend, you either die or get accused of murder. Even if you are just AROUND her, you are in danger of one of these happening to you.  Our actor of the day had one of his first roles of his career as an accused on that show in 1995.

He also played in one of my favorite time travel/mystery movies, Frequency. Gotta love some Dennis Quaid in that one, too. That was an awesome movie. Great premise. Good pacing and drama unfolding.

Our dude of the day was also in one of my favorite historical movies.  He looked amazing in the white shirt, breeches, and boots. AND cape.  AND he can handle a sword. Get thyself to Netflix and rent The Count of Monte Cristo. You won’t regret it.

James Caviezel is the man of the day: 

 As for the reason he is the Man of the Day, he played Christ in The Passion of the Christ- I did not see it because I couldn’t bear to watch it – I heard that he was stellar in  the role and that many, many people left the theatre in tears.  I would have loved to see it but I just can’t. I’m so grateful for what Jesus did for me and the world but I can’t bear a re-enactment of it.  It seems too personal.   And I know I would sob and sob.  Those of you who saw it, I admire your guts.
