For now, thanks for hosting me during my BBF blog tour, my friend!
Seen any good movies lately? What's your fave TV show?
Any movies you don't want to see? I'm wondering if they will quit making Spiderman movies any time soon... How many do we need? And I just found out about Superman vs. Batman - really? Come on!
I pose these questions because I think Hollywood needs to READ MORE BOOKS! We could use some new heroes! So, today I want to talk about books I'd like to see on-screen. And not the ones that already made it, but the ones that get overlooked. The little guys that make quality and substance everyone should know about! I've read some great books that would be awesome ON-SCREEN! Here are just a few examples:
|Maggie and Jack from|
MAGUIRE'S CORNER by Heather M. Gardner - of course! I think her series would make an awesome movie or weekly TV series. There's intrigue, suspense, love interest, drama, humor, realism. The characters are vibrant and deep and have all kinds of problems - perfect for an ongoing series!
Next, is the YA mystery series starring INDIGO EADY by Gwen Gardner (GIVIN UP THE GHOST and A GUILTY GHOST SURPRISED) They're full of adventure, spooks, and teenage fun. I love this series! I think it would be a great set of movies or series on Teen Nick.
Alex J. Cavanaugh's Cassa series (CASSASTAR, CASSAFIRE, and CASSASTORM) This would be an awesome sci fi movie trilogy, real or animated! I also envisioned a Battlestar Galactica type TV series. BTW, I think Alex should take his books to a CON. He would easily gain a cultish following and you know we'd all show up just to see him in person!!
Some more well-known books/series I've read recently include: LEGEND, CINDER, and OPEN MINDS. I think these YA book series would make cool movies and fit right in with the post-apocalyptic/futuristic adventures trending right now. I wouldn't be surprised if any of them were already in the works!
But, my favorite series is the paranormal romance set of novellas by Christine Rains, the 13th FLOOR. These well-written stories have deep characters and awesome action and could totally make it on HBO, easily replacing True Blood!
There are so many more! Of course, I'd like to see my own on screen - that would be unreal and so cool! I'm actually working on a novella that I plan to storyboard with my illustrator and put on youtube - I even have three songs written for it! It's just so fluffy!!
Ahem. Thanks again, Heather! I had fun with this =) Say HI to Stormy for me!
So, tell us. What book would you like to see on screen?

Gabe is an average fifteen-year-old goblin. He’s in the marching band, breezes through calculus, and gets picked on daily by the other kids at school, especially the ogres. But Gabe wants to break out of his nerdy stereotype and try other things. He has his eye on the new ogress at school. Though it’s against all beastly rules, there’s just something about her.
Gabe starts a fad of mingling with other species, forcing the High Council to step in and ruin things by threatening to destroy the school and split up Broken Branch Falls. With help from other outcast friends, Gabe sets out on a quest to save his town. They'll show 'em what different friends can do together!
