Contest!

Hello Everyone,

Hey, did y'all watch Montana Sky last night. Oh, man, that was sooooo good!!! I didn't care for the first movie but this one went way off the I-loved-it meter. The banter between the hero and heroine was fantastic.

I'm hoping they continue to make more romance movies. Wouldn't it be great to see our favorite heroes and heroines come to life? I can't wait for the next one.

I've just started working on new proposals. Karl and I plotted together this morning. Yes, I've dragged him into the world of romance. And he loved Montana Sky, too. He's a great sounding board, though and has some pretty good ideas.

I have a ton of business stuff to catch up on so I guess I'd better get back to that. But since I haven't had as many contests lately, I'll do one here. I'll give away two promo packages with the alien scented soap and alien earrings that people have been getting such a kick out of, bookmarks and whatever else I can find to stuff in an envelope. All you have to do is stop by and say hi :) or make a comment. I'll choose two winners before I go to bed tonight.
Good Luck!

Karen I loved the Nora movie too.. both of the actually and I'm looking forward to the next two. I really hope that they do well so we get more romance novels made into TV movies that we can enjoy. The movies will hopefully show non-romance readers how engaging these stories truly are and boost sales for us all ;-)

There is rarely a good movie portrayal which appeals to me, but I was definitely taken with this movie and hope that there will be others to follow. At least I do read a great deal of romance which fulfils me which I can depend upon for my entertainment.

I missed the movie last night but hope to catch it Saturday. It's been so long since I read Montana Sky I can't remember it. Hopefully I can unearth it from the storage containers and do a quick reread before then.

Good news about the new plotting. Keep us informed.

When I read romance books, which I love, I can visualize the setting, the characters and the entire novel which I automatically do while enjoying the story. When I see it well done as a movie it is so gratifying. Then it is so enjoyable and reinforces the importance of a beautiful story.

alissa said...

I love watching these romance movies and sometimes when I plan I can tape it to watch again since they are my favorites. Nothing like a wonderful romance book or movie to get a good night's sleep.

Cryna said...

Great news on the plotting Karen. I couldn't watch the Nora Roberts movie last night because they are not being shown in Canada. Someone was sayig that they will be coming to us in the summer and I can hardly wait. Your alien series is yummy.......

Cherie said...

Unfortunately, I missed it. Had a rough time with my 3 month old baby girl being fussy yesterday evening and so it completely slipped my mind. I will have to catch it next time it is shown since you all had good things to say.

Romantic books and romantic movies. I love both and definitely think they need more romantic movies.

Excellent news on the plotting. :)

Karen said...

I've got both movies TiVo'd for a moment when things slow down enough I can enjoy them Glad to hear Montana Sky was excellent - it's probably my favorite book of hers, and I'm hoping that chemistry has translated well to the screen.

Good luck with the plotting and biz work!

sharon said...

I didn't get to watch it but loved this book and thought it was so well written and enjoyed it greatly. There should be more good quality romance movies. I never have enough of my romance novels.

pearl said...

I missed this movie but will tape it on Saturday. I love romance books which depict the characters so well and then this translates into a fabulous movie.

principessa said...

I enjoyed this movie since the book was a winner for me. Many times a book is the end all and be all and movies cannot replace the enjoyment from a wonderful novel. My imagination while reading works overtime so it is a double enjoyable experience.

Aisling said...

I'll have to get the dvd when it comes out if it was that good. I love Nora

Barb V. said...

I also loved the movie. Montana Sky is one of my fave Nora books, and I thought they really did it justice. My dh also watched it, and was so wrapped up in it he forgot to tape CSI: Miami. Did y'all see Nora as a dancing wedding guest?

Great news on your proposal brainstorming with your hubby, Karen. How wonderful that he is so involved with your career!

robynl said...

We don't get them in Canada unfortunately. I would have loved to see the movies. Wouldn't it be great to have one of your books made into a movie Karen!!
Alien soaps/earrings, they sound cute. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

Maria, Lover of All Things Romance said...

I love romance in any shape or form so I'll definitely be picking this up when it comes out here

Cathy said...

I loved Nora's book, but just couldn't get into the movie last night. Will still check out the next one, though.

Maureen said...

I didn't get to see the movie. Hopefully they will repeat it.

Jennifer Y. said...

Hello!

I didn't watch the movie yet, but have recorded it. I have never read a Nora book so I can't say how close the movies are to them.

Good luck plotting!

Mary J said...

I love Nora's books, and I can't wait to see these movies.

CrystalG said...

I didn't watch the movie. Hope to watch both of the Nora movies shown so far during the weekend.

MD said...

I love romance movies as much as books, and I can't wait to see these ones!

joelle said...

I so enjoy reading romances since they can transport me anywhere I wish. When a movie does this it is a wonderful experience. To capture this feeling on film is rare but when it happens nothing can replace the emotions it churns up.

Jodi said...

I have both of the movies TIVO'd so far. Hopefully I'll get a chance to watch them in the near future. I've only heard good things about the movies. It would be great to see some other romance books turned into movies too!

Teresa said...

Yes I did watch the show last night and thought it was very good. This one was better than last weeks I thought. I thought that was Nora in the movie but wasn't sure. Loved Charlotte Ross as Tess. Never saw the actress before who played Willa though, didn't even catch her name. Next weeks movie looks like it might be the best yet.

Judy F said...

I haven't watched them yet. My sister is taping them all for me. THen I can watch them whenever.

Amy S. said...

I haven't seen Nora's movies yet. I keep forgetting that they are on.

Liz said...

Hi Karen
I'm so bummed I missed both movies hopefully next week I'll get to see the newest. I'ld love to see more books made into movies.

penny said...

I didn't get to see the movie, but I did like the book. I'm looking forward to the Carolina Moon movie.

Karen Kelley said...

Hi Everyone!
Sorry I haven't gotten back sooner. I had company drop by this afternoon.

Yes! We need more romance movies!!

If you missed the movie it's so worth catching on Saturday if they play it again.

Ahh, thanks Cryna!

I would love to have one of my books made into a movie--or all of them for that matter LOL

Thanks to everyone who responded today.
Drum roll~~~ and the two winners are:
Cherie--sorry your baby was sick!
and
Maureen--I think they repeat them on Saturday???
Okay, if you'll both send me your snail mail to kkelley@classicnet.net I'll get your goodies in the mail!
Again, thanks to everyone who responded!!!!
Karen

Alien Scented Soap... Karen, what does an alien smell like?

;o) had to ask!

danetteb said...

I wasn't able to catch the movie, I do enjoy reading Nora's books though.

richardfan said...

ooh, not me. I don't think I even knew about it.

I'd love to have the alien earrings. :)
