I have since been contacted by Geraldine, with both a request to review her latest novel ‘Chocolicious’ and with some great new updates on the success of ‘Love Letters’.
It seems that things have moved at an extraordinary pace for Geraldine over the last few months, giving a great boost to her writing career.
In May 2011, ‘Love Letters’ was nominated for ‘The Global eBook Awards’, in the romanc fiction category, although we have a short time still to go, before the award winners are announced, on Saturday 20th August 2011.
In June 2011, ‘Love Letters’ was nominated for and subsequently won, ‘The Beach Book Festival’ award, in the romance fiction category.
The ‘icing on the cake’ however, must be the news that ‘Love Letters’ has been optioned for film and work is due to commence on Monday 22nd August 2011. Dream Real Pictures, is an independent production company, where the director is also a producer/actress and screenwriter so she wrote the screenplay herself. She has, to date, produced mostly Westerns and this will be her first love story, so there is great excitement all round.
Geraldine, is understandably, over the moon at the prospect of watching her debut novel, rise from the printed page, to be acted out on the big screen.
“I still can’t believe all the great news and I’m so excited to watch Love Letters on the big screen. The director is currently casting for actors/actresses for the movie. She is so geared up with this project and I know she’s going to do a good job.”
Watch this space for the rise of her second novel ‘Chocolicious’, whch Geraldine has kindly sent me an ARC for.
UPDATE SEPTEMBER 5th 2011
I have recently received mail from Geraldine with news about the start of filming, plus a link to youtube, where you can view the first installment.
