I’m A Scared!

Oct 31, 2008 by

When I think of the Halloween season, the one thing that comes to mind is being scared. What scares us? We all have fears, some we overcome as we grow into adults, others that will stick with us always. Here are some of my biggest fears: I am afraid of bees. When I was seven years old, I was stung by one near my right eye. If that little sucker had pointed its stinger one more tiny centimeter to the left, I would have been blind in that eye. My yearly Halloween costume would have been a pirate because I would have to wear an eye patch, probably for the rest of my life. Before I go to bed each night, I check under my bed and look under my sheet and blanket to...

My Heart Goes Pitter Patter

Oct 30, 2008 by

There is just something about this man that makes me want to fan myself. For those who do not know him, this is Simon Baker, the Aussie actor who is the star of CBS’s new hit show, The Mentalist. You may have also seen him in The Devil Wears Prada and a very adorable romance called Something New. Are there any hunky TV actors, new or old, that get your motor running like Simon does for...

Stories That Scare

Oct 30, 2008 by

My second favorite type of genre to read are horror novels or scary short stories. The goose bumps rise on my arms because the words that the author has written suddenly has the ability to scare the crap out of me. There are not many books that make me jump at shadows, but I have a select few that I think are perfect for a little Halloween reading. The Tell-Tale Heart (1843) by Edgar Allen PoeThis is my favorite story by Poe. It is a chilling telling by the narrator as he tells about a murder he committed and how he got rid of the body. The police come to him to ask him questions about the missing person. They have no clue that he is the killer, and he is about to get...

20,000 Screaming Women

Oct 29, 2008 by

CIRCA 1990 NOW 2008 Last night I went to a concert that was eighteen years in the making. The last time I saw this group perform was at Madison Square Garden, the same venue I went to last night when I was fourteen years old. I saw New Kids on the Block perform in front of 20,000 screaming WOMEN. Gone were the teenie bopper girls that made them famous. I was once one of these teenie boppers who, now as a grown woman, had the time of my life last night. And the funniest thing is, they served beer to the concert goers. Who would have ever thought NKOTB’s fans would be legal enough to be able to drink alcohol? This group and I have a lot of history with each other. I have...

Fun Twilight Factoids

Oct 28, 2008 by

I proud to admit I am a total Stephenie Meyer fan. I am anxiously counting down the days for when the movie, Twilight, is finally released. The website Horror Movies.ca has some fun facts about the upcoming movie and series that fans, like myself, may be interested in: – TWILIGHT has quickly become a huge international phenomenon, developing a strong core base of dedicated fans, especially women, who are drawn to the story of a Romeo & Juliet- style romance between mortal and vampire.– TWILIGHT is the 4th most searched movie on the internet according to IMDbPro’s moviemeter.– During the month of April, the film’s 18 listed cast members made up most of the top 30 searched stars on the web.– There was so much response to the TWILIGHT casting photos when they were...

KB’s Experience at the 2008 Put Your Heart in a Book Conference...

Oct 26, 2008 by

Yesterday I went to the 2008 Put Your Heart in a Book Conference held by the New Jersey Romance Writers’ in Iselin, NJ. I helped out Romance Novel TV for the day as we video taped some workshops and interviews with the authors to post on the RNTV site. This conference was much like RWA Nationals I went to this past July in San Francisco, CA, but on a smaller scale. One of the main reasons I wanted to go was because JR Ward was going to be there as a special presentation speaker. She is one of my all time favorite authors and to meet her was a dream of mine. Since Ward does not fly, she drove all the way from Kentucky to attend this weekend event. The first author workshop I...

I Love Your Blog: The Book Smugglers...

Oct 26, 2008 by

These two ladies really don’t need any introduction, and in my opinion, their site is one of the must go-to blogs and review sites out there. Ana and Thea from The Book Smugglers only arrived on the scene early last year, and since then they have brightened my world in so many ways. Their insightful reviews, whether it be about books, movies and television are unlike any I have read on the other review sites and blogs. Their voice is so very original and creative and they make a great team. Their dedication to post every single day is extraordinary. Out of all the blogs I go to, The Book Smugglers is the first one I visit every day. Ana and Thea have made me a better reviewer this year mainly because of our...
