Well, I Must REALLY Be An Author Now…

I’m tickled pink today.  There’s a web page at Amazon.com with my book on it.  Eeee!  I’m a little giddy right now.  Good thing I’m sitting down.

So I must really be an author now, because it says “Christine S. Feldman” with the word “Author” in parentheses after my name.  And if you click on my name, it brings up an official Author Page.  Check it out at this link.

See?

I realize this is probably a lot more exciting to me than to anyone else, but I hope you’ll forgive me for prattling on about it.  I’ll try to restrict myself to mostly just babbling endlessly about it to my husband.  He has to forgive me.  I’m pretty sure it was in our vows.

Coming Home is also available on iTunes, and I think it will be on Barnes & Noble’s website in about one more week for Nook users.  How cool is that?!

Okay, I’ll stop now.  🙂

Special Offer Through Woman’s Day & Crimson Romance

The April issue of Woman’s Day magazine is on newsstands right now, and it’s got a special offer that you can take advantage of if you’re interested.  Crimson Romance is partnering up with Woman’s Day to advertise an offer for a free e-book from the Crimson online collection.  For those of us with books coming out from Crimson, it’s an exciting opportunity for the general public to learn more about our publisher, so we’re very happy!  If you’d like to get a copy of the free e-book, here’s a link to the web page with the information.

The book is called Catch a Falling Star, and it’s a very cute and enjoyable read.  I encourage you to check it out, and remember:  free!

 

 

New Take on Shakespeare

Did you know there is a movie remake of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing coming out?  I didn’t until recently.  I really enjoyed the Kenneth Branagh version, but this new one sounds interesting, too–especially since it has Joss Whedon attached.  I’m a big fan of Joss Whedon’s humor and quirkiness, so I’m looking forward to seeing what he does with this classic.  If you’d like more info or a glimpse of the movie trailer, check out this preview at www.angie-ville.com.  It’s the March 7th blog entry.

More Screenwriting News…

The results are in for another screenwriting contest I entered, the 2012 Screenplay Festival. They have a Grand Prize Winner and five Honorable Mentions in each of five categories:  Action/Adventure, Comedy, Drama, Family, and Thriller/Horror.  My screenplay The Bloodline is officially one of those five Honorable Mentions in the Thriller/Horror category, so I’m very happy about that!  Don’t know if it will lead to any actual contacts who would be in a position to do anything with the script, but it’s still pretty exciting.  I’m thinking about rewriting it as a novel and seeing if the screenwriting contests it’s won might make it a little more intriguing to publishers.  We’ll see…

Screenwriting News

Hey, I just found out that my screenplay The Bloodline has made it to the quarterfinals of the Writers on the Storm screenwriting competition!  Yay!  The next round of placements will be next month, and in the meantime it’s just pretty cool to make it this far.  Here’s a link to the blog listing the results, if you’re interested in checking them out.  It’s the March 4th entry on their site.

Joining the Modern Age — Sort Of

I’m not exactly resistant to progress in modern technology, just incredibly fearful of it.  That’s why I’ve never actually held an iPod and why my cell phone is the kind that just makes phone calls and that’s all.  But since Coming Home is going to come out as an ebook, I decided it was time to get a Kindle so I could actually read the thing.

So I am now the proud owner of a Kindle Fire!  I am also a tightly-wound owner.  I’ve had a few minor glitches getting it up and running but–fingers crossed–I think we’re in business!  And I only whimpered a little, so I’m very proud of myself.

I’ve even figured out how to download a book, so I figure that’s a big accomplishment, but I’ll bet there are all sorts of wonderful things my Kindle can do, right?  Like surf the net wirelessly, play movies, babysit small children, imitate bird calls, and probably fight crime, too.  Wow.

Oooo!  Look at that!  I just figured out how to put a lock on my Kindle.  Look at me go!

My confidence level is soaring.  Next thing you know, I’ll be texting.

(pets Kindle with delight)

I think this could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
