Book/TV News and a Giveaway

Ok, so I know I'm really late posting today. I was doing some freelance transcription work for the folks Mike works with, and we had to hook my keyboard up to his computer (to make life easier, short-long story, but I won't go into it).

So, I'm hooked in again and earned some extra money and am now posting a giveaway that I've been planning to coincide with some TV, page-to-screen news!

I'm super excited to hear that Kevin Williamson has adapted LJ Smith's Vampire Diaries books into a prime-time show for the CW. The show premieres September 10 and I'll be tuned in, hoping the show is as kick-ass as I remember the books being.

This fall, ABC is airing FlashForward based on Robert J. Sawyer's book of the same name. The series stars Joseph Feinnes, Dominic Monaghan, and Gabrielle Union and airs Thursdays, starting September 24. Interestingly enough, the show was originally produced by HBO. We'll see if this has any effect (affect?) on the show soon.

ABC is going real literary this fall with another show based on a book, Eastwick, based on John Updike's Witches of Eastwick, will air on Wednesdays.

And finally, the giveaway. In honor of Past Life, a new show airing on FOX in January, based on MJ Rose's Reincarnationist books, I'm giving away the set of two to one commenter here.

To enter for a copy of The Reincarnationist AND The Memorist, just leave me a comment here with your e-mail address (no PO Box folks and continental US only -- I'm still recovering from moving costs).

Deadline to get your name in is Sunday, August 2 (end of day). I'll announce the winner here on Monday, August 3 and contact them via the e-mail provided in the comment.

Good luck and happy reading!

I would love to be entered. There are a lot of t.v. adaptations coming out, I hope they are decent because so many of the shows I enjoyed were canceled the past couple of years. I'm still mad about Life on Mars, I thought it was doing well!

Yes I am excited as well about the new fall television shows airing.

Vampire Diaries looks good.

Would love to enter. Thanks

If nothing else, FlashForward has some yummy eye candy in Joseph Fiennes....Dominic Monaghan is a cutie-patootie, too (my taste goes all over the place, yeah?). I'd hope that HBO would do a good job with it and hope that ABC doesn't dork it.
