Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!
A reader recently wrote to me to say Brendan Fraser (up) was one of her favorite actors, and another wrote to me and asked what/who gave me inspiration for my hero (Christian of Arrick-by-the-Sea) in Thirteen Chances.
Well...Christian sort of took on a look all his own, but THIS particular picture (of Brendan and Alicia lip-locked) is what inspired me throughout the writing of Thirteen Chances. I enlarged it and had it centered on my story board, which sat right in front of me while I wrote. I don't know...I think it is just the sweetest, sexiest kiss picture! Sigh! I love Brendan Fraser! :)
In my second novel, Into Thin Air, I had a small internal scene with the heroine, Ellie, who was recalling the Best Kiss Ever in the History of Kisses. It was recently pointed out to me that I left one very important kiss out: the kiss between Wesley and Buttercup! Doh! How could I? I just recently watched The Princess Bride and man--I love that movie! :)
So even though I have a Valentine's Day contest running from my contest page, I'll run another small one right now: Post a comment to this blog and let us know your favorite couple or kiss scene! I'll run this contest through Sunday, and Sunday evening I'll post the winner. I'll offer a signed copy of MacGowan's Ghost and any of my other novels. Woohoo!
Okay, and for those of you who have entered: My February Contest will run through the end of February, and my Valentine's Day contest will run until midnight TONIGHT. Sunday morning I'll announce the winner here, and it will also appear on my Contest Page. :)
Good Luck! And Happy V-Day!!!!
