To quell my mounting impatience, the mighty and powerful Liz sent me a scan of the brand spanky new Realms of Fantasy review. Since the magazine’s site hasn’t been updated with the September content yet, I can’t link you to the full text — but I’ve excerpted the beginning and added it to my reviews page, if you want to take a peek.
In other news, my agent was contacted by a movie producer earlier this week. I guess someone read the Publishers Weekly review and wanted to see the book, so Lantz has dutifully sent along an ARC. I’m not as excited as you might think; this has happened twice before, and nothing came of it. Once it was declined in the midst of all the legal crap with Mad Bruce, and the second time it was dropped because the interested party got fired (or so I understand). Perhaps the third time’s a charm; perhaps not.
It would be an easy book to adapt, and it would make for a better southern gothic piece by far than anything that I’m not going to name here but have seen recently and was disappointed by.
