As you may already know my book, The Truth Lies in the Dark has been chosen by Hollywood film producer, Beth Grossbard. She made many movies for CBS and Lifetime Movie Network, among them are The Christmas Shoes, The Christmas Blessing and just finished The Christmas Hope. She wants my book to be her next movie. It is very exciting, but also very challenging.

Given the state of the economy, movie executives are increasingly picky on what new projects they will take on. They are looking primarily for best sellers and well known authors. I am neither. Beth is going to pitch my story late summer/early fall and I want to do what I can to help the executives agree that this would make a great movie. Here's where I ask for your help.

You can help me get my book made into a movie and win great prizes too! That's right, in exchange for a few words of support I will be giving multiple prizes. The more support I get the more prizes I will add, which means more chances to win. As an added bonus, if my book does in fact become a movie I will offer a GRAND PRIZE (to be announced) to one lucky winner. All entries are included in every drawing. So you only have to enter once for many chances to win.

Here's what you do!

In the comment box below please voice your support for my book becoming a movie and an email so I can contact the winners. The following is a list and potential award schedule. Remember, once you leave a comment you are automatically entered to win all prizes offered. All prize winners will be drawn and announced at the end of the contest, except for the GRAND PRIZE, which will be announced once the movie deal is signed.

Contest begins today July 20, 2009 and ends August 31, 2009 September 30, 2009
  • 1st prize = signed copy of The Truth Lies in the Dark & a book T-shirt for every 50 comments. Example: If there are 200 comments by the end of the contest I will give away 4 signed books w/T-shirts.

In addition to the books & T-shirts I will add another prize on each hundredth comment. These prizes will be one of the following and will be posted as they are added.

  • @ 100 comments ... $20.00 gift card to amazon
  • @ 200 comments ... Reading lamp & stationary gift set
  • @ 300 comments ... Movie gift set: movie passes at a theater of your choice

The more comments left the more prizes that will be added. So tell your friends and get ready to win. If you have any questions or would like more information about The Truth Lies in the Dark you can email me at Thank you in advance for you support and help with this and good luck!
