Beauty and the Beast Movie Adventure with the Bestie

Well, I saw it. As of right now, they're saying Beauty made 160 million over the weekend. It's 7pm as I write this. They'll probably make another 10 million before midnight.

So I've been DYING to see this movie. Bestie and I decide to go at 12pm Sunday. We get to the theater. Two signs on the window. Beauty 3D sold out until 1pm. Beauty 2D sold out until 6! This has never happened at this theater opening weekend in the six years I've lived here.

I freak out. We go back to the car and fandango on Bestie's phone. Signal isn't working. We decide to go to another theater and start driving. I get on my phone and fandango. Get the tickets. They're $15! Normally the matinee by me is 9. Meh. I'm seeing this movie and buy the tickets.

We get to the theater and I warn Bestie I will probably be crying throughout this whole movie. I proceed to explain that I literally cried through the whole movie when I bought it on DVD after it came out of the Disney Vault.

As I'm looking up at the time screen I realize something. We're in an IMAX theater. I paid $15 for matinee. I freak out. Bestie...we're seeing this in IMAX. OMG.

After twenty minutes of trailers, really Disney?, the movie starts, the castle appears and the music begins. I start tearing up. It barely stopped for two hours. I shit you not.

If I wasn't smiling at the amazing...EVERYTHING, I was crying and lipsyncing and tapping my foot or laughing.

One tiny, minor moment during the wolf fight was missing for me...


...and I could have done without Beast's solo toward the end, but other than that? It was perfect. <3

#MIND: The Message (Bk4) ON SALE NOW! #SFR #PNR

While I was writing book three, MIND: The Reckoning, I wasn't sure exactly where it was going to end or how and I honestly didn't know if there was more to tell. Then I realized how much I enjoyed writing about Theo and knew he needed his own story.

MIND: The Message is part mystery, scifi, and romance. Mystery novels were my first love and I always try to incorporate unanswered questions into all my stories. They always keep the plot moving forward which is a tough task in any novel.

Pleasantly surprised at how easily this book came out of me, gave me a bit of pause, to be honest, but with three books in this series already done, most of the characters were so well established that they helped the plot move along even more.

Enjoy!

“We know,” Liam said.

“Nice try though,” Duncan added.

“Did you think we’d let it slide?” Dina put a hand on her hip.

Heat crawled up Theo’s cheeks. Unsure which secret they uncovered, since he still had many, he kept his face blank and raised an eyebrow to his former subordinate.

“You didn’t think I’d ever find out, but I did. Happy Birthday, bro,” Duncan said, as the others chimed in. He grinned and moved in for a hug. “Aime searched your record from Rivia’s ship, didn’t even need to hack the DHHS.”

Theo hugged his friend and sighed with a twinge of relief.

“So, what are you like a hundred and fifty now?” Dina quipped.

“Maybe,” Theo said, breaking out of the hug.

Liam patted him on the shoulder, probably aware of his discomfort at the question, and held up eight VIP tickets to Rummers, the hottest nightclub in New York City.

Theo shook his head.

Liam nodded.

Dina grinned.

“Dancing?” Theo grumbled.

“And drinking,” Duncan said. “Pretty ladies for you, because you really need to get a life, man.”

Stranded on earth over a hundred years ago, Liam of Shria is searching for a metal needed to repair his ship when he finds Dina inside an alien escape pod and narrowly saves her after she trips the alarm.

MIND: The Emergence (Bk2) - 99c 

Kimkuta Wolf remembers everything, always has. Her unique ability gives her an edge as a journalist, but the stories she's covering no longer get the attention they deserve. After reporting on a missing person's case, she's attacked by a 'vampire' who she claims stole her memories. The doctors think she's crazy, but Kim knows better. With her best friend’s help, she embarks on a quest to find an ancient artifact once protected by her grandfather’s tribe.

Duncan Ranger has finally settled into his new job as the head of MIND, the Meta-Alien Investigation, and Neutralization Department tasked with monitoring the human psychic and alien population on Earth. When MIND stumbles onto clues that lead them to another mysterious piece of alien technology, Duncan arrives just in time to thwart the second attack on Kim and Lexa, two powerful women who may be more than human.

Together, with the help of the entire MIND team, Kim and Duncan embark on a journey of discovery, connecting their lives and those of their ancestors to an emergence of abilities, which might alter the course of human history forever.

When someone has your name - Internet edition.

Being born Jennifer in 1974 sucks. Probably for most of the Jennifers born in the 70s.

To be "different" from the dozens of Jennifer's I knew in school, I became Jenn in 10th grade. Science class if I remember correctly because there were four of us in the class and it annoyed the FUCK out of me.

So when I started writing and searched Jenn Nixon, no one came up. NO ONE.

Then some fertility chick hijacked my google slots.

But that was okay, I guess. Then guess what?

Another Jenn Nixon pops up and it really sucks because THAT'S NOT ME and she's taken over my google images. UGH.















Doesn't matter that I've spent the last 10+ years building a social media presence, nope. Just have the same name as someone else and boom, you're at the top of Google.
