Fun Film Friday: Cry Little Sister, The Lost Boys

If you ever wondered where I got the base rhythm/inspiration for the Carousel club in the Twixt, look no further than the rock-n-roll cult classic, LOST BOYS.

Enjoy!

I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for BOOKS!

I love ice cream. Every book launch I’ve done has had an “ice cream social” event whereupon I can share my love of ice cream concoctions with friends, family and perfect strangers while celebrating my latest book release.

Twixt Sundae

Behold: A Twixt Sundae, which featured vanilla ice cream with caramel, hot fudge, whipped cream and a Twix bar! Mmmm!

This year, we ran a bit later than previous years so I had time to plan and shmooze with favorite librarians about doing a sort of “flavor pair-up” with ice creams featuring our favorite books (and vice versa)! Imagine taking a book out of the library and getting a coupon towards your favorite flavor? Or getting an ice cream and learning about a new book? I had *way* too much fun chatting away with local bookivores about this idea and while no one took me up on it (yet), I got to enjoy the mental exercise as well as talk with plenty of local ice cream shops along the way so win-win for me!

As this is the sort of silliness my brain thrives on, I thought I’d share the list of flavors I came up with and see if you have any others! Leave suggestions in the comments!
