Wait! Reverse that!
LOL -- Saw Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and thought it charming...although Gene Wilder will always hold a special place in my heart as Willie Wonka. Johnny Depp has created a wonderful characterization as well...isn't it great when Hollywood can get it right TWICE?
Let's see...in the past month I've finished a short story that I've submitted for next year's Caveman series from EC (will let you know as soon as I know if it's been accepted or not). I've also begun research on a new historical fiction and begun rewrites on a previously written historical.
Now, I know what you're thinking...Diana Hunter writes contemporary bondage romance, not historical anything. But I'm a woman of many talents (or so my husband tells me
Speaking of CABIN FEVER...my husband and his sister and some friends and I went wining recently (NOT whining...wine-ing) in the Finger Lakes region of New York State. If you don't already know, there are over 100 wineries nestled between, around and beside the lakes...and most of them make award-winning treats for the tastebuds. That day we rented a limo (we're not stupid...we don't drink and drive!!!), and visited nine wineries on the shores of the Seneca and Cayuga lakes.
Now, what does all this have to do with CABIN FEVER? Hazlitt Vineyards, a vineyard that planted it's first vine in 1852, has a wonderful white wine called....Cabin Fever! I was delighted to find it a sweet wine (my tastes run to the sweeter wines....give me a good port anyday!)...and I bought several bottles. On August 20th, I'm doing a book signing...and intend to give away a bottle of it in a special drawing for those who attend. You can find details on both my website (www.dianahunter.net) and on my newsletter (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/dianahunter).
So I have been keeping busy, even if I haven't been blogging. To those of you who made it to the Romance Writers of America conference...I hope you all had a good time. Perhaps next year I'll be able to make it!
Till later...play safe!
