Yep, in my dream last night, my novel, In the Shadow of the Dragon King, was picked up by none other than Peter Jackson himself. See, he likes dragons and destroying things and when he read my novel, he knew he had to put it on the big screen.
Needless to say, I was overjoyed, as was my publisher.
Of course the film was a HUGE success and was up for 9 Academy Awards. All of the authors from Month9Books and its imprints were there at the theater. We were all dressed to kill and we made such a lovely bunch of giddy authors. My daughter, Heather Jessup, who is a real-life costume designer, did all the costumes for the film (I told Peter I wouldn’t allow the film to be made without my daughter as the CD. Let me tell you, she was stoked beyond stoked.) Heather won an Academy Award for her role in the film. The film won a couple of other awards for musical score and set design, but I woke up before I found out if it won Best Picture.
Dreams. Ya gotta love them. And until my dying breath, this will be the next major dream I will see come true. Don’t believe me? Just watch and wait. Peter Jackson, if you’re out there … I’ve got my eye on you. 🙂
So, tell me. What is your BIG dream?

I hope all your dreams come true! 😀
We should all have dreams like that.
i think a lot of people do but they think they’re silly and never follow through. I’m going to go for the gusto on this one. Never let go, right?
Right on, sister, right on.
Hey, you never know, it could happen. Bet Gillian Flynn didn’t think she’d have the #1 bestseller and #1 movie in the same week when she wrote her first sentence of Gone Girl. 🙂
Exactly. I say if you’re going to dream, dream BIG!! 🙂
