Movie news, meetings, California, and catch up!

I'm back from California!  And I must say, I'm missing the warm weather already... lol!  But I missed my kids even more so, I guess I'll deal with the cold ;-)

The trip went fantastically!  I really had a blast with my husband, bumming on the beach, visiting Universal Studio's, and meeting with Kami Garcia, Mark Morgan, and Brett Hudson!  The meeting went fantastic, better than I could have even imagined.  These guys are amazing and I am beyond stoked for what is to come in the next year+.

I just wanted to quickly share a few things with you relating to the whole exciting movie deal business.  This was an article from The Film Stage, and it totally just made my day!

Feature Adaptation Planned For Keary Taylor’s ‘Eden’; Described as ‘Hunger Games’ Meets ‘Terminator
Posted by Amanda Waltz, on December 16, 2011 at 3:45 pm

The success of Suzanne Collins’ young adult fantasy series The Hunger Games, as well as the highly anticipated March release of its film adaptation, has the industry clamoring to cash in on the newest teen pop culture obsession: strong-willed dystopian heroines.


It was announced this week that the independent production company Kerry, Kimmel and Pollack (KK&P) purchased the film rights to the post-apocalyptic novel Eden by Keary Taylor. The story follows Eve (of course), a teenage girl struggling unravel the secrets of her past in a futuristic world where all but two percent of the human population was wiped out by killer robots. The similarities to Collins’s literary hit seem to end with the female protagonist, but that hasn’t stopped it from being marketed as a “cross between The Hunger Games and The Terminator.” [Variety]


As if it couldn’t be more primed to become the next teen sensation, Mark Morgan, who helped bring such adolescent literature as the Twilight series and Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief to the big screen, is producing. Brett Hudson, Michael Pollack and “Beautiful Creatures” series co-author, Kami Garcia, have also been tapped to produce, but no word yet on possible choices to pen and direct the film.


Has the teen sci-fi/fantasy craze hit its peak? Will young audiences embrace Eden?  (source)


How cool is that?!  "As if it couldn't be more primed to become the next teen sensation"... that is just way too awesome.

So yeah!  Lots and lots of exciting things going on!  I feel so distracted lately and I can't seem to make myself focus on much of anything else, lol.  Thank you all again for all of your support!  You've all been amazing!  I'll be playing catch up on everything over the next few days so if it takes me a bit to respond to comments/emails/tweets, etc, hang tight while I catch up on things! :-)
