  • Of course, the bad boy news can’t be complete without an update from my favorite —> Travis!!! So guess what? Beautiful Disaster will be a movie!!! Jamie McGuire’s Beautiful Disaster news just keeps coming!! *squeeeeeee* It’s just wayyyy too exciting and I’ll admit to being a bit nervous considering… I mean. Who are they gonna pick for him!? He’s just such bad-boy perfection! And here’s another interesting article/perspective about the upcoming movie that Jamie enjoyed.
  • Jamie McGuire also requested a little favor, on Facebook!! ;) She said:

Vote for Beautiful Disaster’s cover at RT…because I’m competitive and like to win things!”

  • And the indie publishing success news just keeps on coming!! Karina Halle of the awesome Experiment in Terror series has just signed on with a big time agent!! Check out the great news on her blog post.

This one reached #117 on amazon highest and #88 on Barnes and Noble in record time!!! (here is the Kindle version – Avoiding Commitment (Avoiding Series)). NOTE: —> for those of you asking about book #2 (Avoiding Responsibility) it is currently in editing and is expected to be available on Amazon within the next couple of months.

Congratulations Colleen Hoover. You absolutely deserve it. Your books (Slammed & Point of Retreat) are absolutely FABULOUS and I will never forget my reading experience, and the thrill your stories gave me.

Thanks for all of the good news! Been reading your reviews of books for months now and find them to be perfect for a contemporary and paranormal romance newbie like me…and it’s soooo much fun making up for lost time ;)

I’m so glad you’ve been joining me! I’m having a blast with it, but especially more so, knowing that we’re all reading these together!! *hug*

This is all great news. Oh and I would NEVER have pictured Howard/Bear like this. So does this mean we would be all hot & sexy too if we ate as many bear claws as he does?

Maryse August 1, 2012 at 2:39 PM

I think his were genes have him a little “specially” formulated to eat that many bear claws without consequence.

I’m tellin’ you. The were-life looks more and more appealing!

I’m so excited for Reflected in you and Reckless.. I recently started following your blog and OMG.. THANK YOU!! I’m obsessed.. I haven’t stopped reading!! So far I’ve read 25 books you reviewed and suggested.. THANKS!!

Maryse August 1, 2012 at 3:20 PM

Eunice! I’m just as obsessed as you. ;) It’s fun though, right? P.S. Glad you’re here!

Okay. I did not picture Howard to look like this. He is freakin’ HOT! The last book gave us a closer glimpse of what his personality is but I am completely smitten with him now. Thank you Ms. Sparks!

EEEK! So excited about BD movie – although I am little bit worried form th descriptions thy are going to make Abby in to too much of a ‘good girl’, yeah in the beginning shes trying to be that good girl but she can drink 15 shots of tequila, she isnt Teetotal! I also hope th Travis fight scenes are still brutal!

and same as the others want to say THANK-YOU for your brilliant suggestions / reviews / SQUEES, I have had your blog for about a year or so but it was only after 50shades trilogy that I started on a major contemporary romance binge from your suggestions and have read Bared to You, Beautiful Disaster, Thoughtless, Effortless, Crash,. Fall from Grace and I am about to start Slammed. My only problem is knowing what of my epic TBR list to read first.
