I'm very excited to welcome Lisa Renee Jones to the Playground today! Not only is she a fantastic writer, she's also so generous with her time and experience. She writes for Blaze, Nocturne and will soon debut with Grand Central. This girl has a ton of irons in the fire! But she's got the talent and energy to handle them all. Please give her a warm Playground welcome.
Waving to everyone this holiday season! It’s exciting for me to see 2010 coming because I debut my new Faith Winter name in August 2010 with a new paranormal series called ‘The Renegades’ with Grand Central Forever. (Think hot super soldiers created from a government experiment at Area 51). I end the year with a fun contemporary Santa Baby from Blaze. I love this story and I think that’s because the heroine in Santa Baby has my kind of bad luck -- and still she manages to find her way to a rich hunk of a man! :)
Speaking of men – I had a wonderful Turkey day with my man. We saw two movies. Yes two! I have to say though that I thought the Thanksgiving weekend choices for movies were slim picking. We saw New Moon, of course. We went to the matinee on Thanksgiving and shared the theater with about 7 other people. It was perfect! No crowd. I liked the movie well enough. It had great werewolf and vampire special effects but too much Bella crying/nightmares and too little plot. The parts I liked though, I really liked. Then, we saw The Road. Viggo Mortesen. Need I say more? He had lost tons of weight for this movie which was sad and emotional. It was not a happy movie but it was a movie that speaks to the soul and makes you think. Viggo showed the exceptional actor he is.

There are so many movies coming up I cannot wait to see!
The Book of Eli! Denzel! This looks sooo good! http://www.apple.com/trailer/wb/thebookofeli/
The Tooth Fairy! http://www.moviefone.com/movie/the-tooth-fairy/34807/video/tooth-fairy-trailer-no-1/44593788001
Yes I know! Night and day, but they both look amazing.
So I have books to give away! I’m a movie fanatic. Tell me what movies you’ve seen recently, or movies you’re looking forward to, so I won’t risk missing anything good.
