If you missed the very cute TV movie that was made of my first novel, SEE JANE DATE, you can see it next Saturday, May 17th at 1pm on the Hallmark Channel. Here's a trailer (there's a weird 15 second commercial for msn first). I still love the fact that Antonio Sabato Jr. plays the heartbreaker when I had the huge Calvin Klein underwear poster of hot Antonio on my college dorm walls.
Anyway, the movie is adorable and is also available on DVD. Several fun TV actors star, such as Charisma Carpenter as Jane, Holly Marie Combs of Charmed, Linda Dano of soap fame, Joshua Malina, Cameron Mathison, and the very first Millionaire guy, who has a hilarious cameo. In another six degrees of separation moment, I've recently discovered that Cameron Mathison of All My Children and Dancing With The Stars fame, suffered from the same rare childhood degenerative hip condition (Perthes Disease) that is now affecting my son. Cameron Mathison recently danced his heart out on Dancing With The Stars, proving like Earl Cole, the recent winner of Survivor Fiji, who also had Perthes Disease as a kid, that it's all about perseverance.
And in QUESTIONS TO ASK BEFORE MARRYING news, I just saw two very nice reviews, including this one from RT Bookclub Reviews magazine (4 1/2 stars): "Senate's relatable story involves two sisters struggling to secure their past. Senate broaches heavy topics of single motherhood, abandonment and true love and does so with a flourish of witty, complicated and realistic characters, subtle humor, and emergent relationship."
You can check out an excerpt of QUESTIONS TO ASK BEFORE MARRYING (and pre-order too!) on Amazon. If you go to the Barnes&Noble.com page, please note that my novel is NOT a Christian novel, despite the category at the top of the page. I and my publisher just can't seem to get B&N to change it to Women's Fiction.
The other nice review was from the famous Harriet Klausner and she said all kinds of nice things and gave me 5 stars.
Okay, off to Mother's Day dinner with my dear son, who made me the cutest card in his kindergarten class (10,000,000 stars!)
