Congratulations & Awards

Many, many congratulations to the lovely Phillipa Ashley . Her wonderful book, Decent Exposure, is to be made into a film by Fox, and is going to be their flagship Christmas movie on the Lifetime Channel this December. It will be called The Twelve Men of Christmas, and Phillipa has just found out who they've cast as their lead actress, so please pop along to her blog to find out.



Thank you to troy for this lovely award. I do like getting awards, and love air display that comes over to Jersey every September, so this is great.

I'm now off to finish my next assignment, and polish up a short story so they can both go in this mornings post. The sun is shining, and although the forecast said it's going to be a little windy, I intend making the most of it, although we all know about good intentions. Dont we?

Troy said...

Glad you like your award. When the Red Arrows fly over Jersey this year I'll request that they do this particular formation especially for you (The Deb's 9). Did you know they have their first lady pilot this year? Use good binoculars and you'll see she has a satnav in her cockpit.

Casdok said...

Enjoy your good intentions!

Debs said...

troy - I love my award, thanks. I'm impressed that there's finally a lady in their team.

casdok - thanks.

The good intentions are going fairly well too.
