It's a Wonderful Life

Another quickie to say I'm blogging over on the PHS this Friday about my favourite Christmas movie the Wonderful, Fabulous, Fantastic It's a Wonderful Life. What I like to think of as A Christmas Carol for people who already have a warm heart...

So if you want to know why I love that movie so much pop on over there.  

And in a quick update, have just done the proof edits on my 
fifth book Hot-Shot Tycoon: Indecent Proposal, always the best bit to my mind, when you can just sit back and bask in the fruits of your labour (and correct the odd typo into the bargain). And it's a goodie, even if I say so myself - and even after all the agony over the summer.


Now I've got to concentrate on my next book, which is going to be Connor's brother Cormac's story. Our Cormac's another drop-dead delicious Irish man (wavy black hair, dreamy blue eyes, tight squeezable butt, husky Emerald Isle accent...  you get the picture) who just happens to be a famous Hollywood movie star. Have to admit here to being ever so slightly inspired by Richard Armitage in the new series of Spooks (ooh, cue a tottie picture). And can I also just point out that they shot some scenes from that series in the office where I work on one of the days I wasn't there (Richard, what were you thinking??)

And Mac's heroine?? Shy, tomboyish, but not all that retiring, Juno Delamare, Daisy's best friend (Daisy's my last heroine, for those of you who haven't being paying attention) who manages her shop in Portobello and knows from experience that gorgeous, successful guys are always bad news - and is pretty sure that ultra-gorgeous, super-successful movie stars are even worse news... Boy, is she in for a pleasureable -but not always pleasant - surprise (after all pleasant can be dull right, and Mac certainly isn't going to be dull)! 

I can already see an incident packed road trip to the south of France and a sojourn in a luxury beach house in Malibu in their future. And I'm going to make absolutely sure that neither of them knows what hit them.

Right, time to go off and start riddling them both with cupid's arrows....

One of these days I'll get around to actually watching It's A Wonderful Life-- the thing is, I've heard so much about it, that I feel I already know it, even if I haven't watched it. Does that make sense?

Heidi said...

Shame on you Kim, and a yank as well who hasn't seen it, isn't that a sin or something??

But actually if you want to check out my PHS blog you definitely won't have to watch it... Can't believe I waffled on - sorry, waxed lyrical about it for about ten pages....

Ack! Please say you didn't just call me a Yankee... In Alabama, those are some fightin' words! ;-)

Heidi said...

Oops, sorry, forgot you guys from South of the Mason-D are picky about that!

Tell you what, you can call me a Chelsea fan and I'll take it on the chin...

Oooo the new story sounds fabulous... I can't wait.

Now is it wrong that I'm not a big fan of Wonderful Life?? *hides from Heidi's wrath*

Heidi said...

Ahh Biddy, bless you for the vote of confidence, especially as I'm currently thinking 'what the hell was I thinking" trying to write this bloody story...

And as for your sad lapse of judgement as regards It's a Wonderful Life, the less said about that the better...
