Blogging at the WNP today...

I kept my theme of "comfort" and considered the kind of music I tend to gravitate toward during certain moods or tasks...and included a lovely piece of eye candy just for fun.

And just to prove that I'm slowly coming out from under the rock that I live beneath, I'll post this pic of the delicious Gerry Butler in Dracula 2000, which I just watched last night. (Unbelievable that I, a vampire author and Gerry fan had no idea this movie existed until last week.)

Thanks Heather. I'm still fanning myself!

Never heard of it myself.

Shame on you, Colleen, for not knowing about this movie! Of course, I did not know Gerry existed until June of 2005 and I didn't realize Gerry EXISTED until I saw Phantom last January. (Shame on me) But I quickly caught up, buying every movie of his that I could find on DVD. He makes a very sexy Dracula!
Thanks for the pic!
(Timeline was on the Sci Fi channel last night!)

Actually, Timeline was the first movie I ever saw Gerry Butler in, and I had no idea who he was...just that he was the hottest one in the flick.

But the Phantom was, of course, the role that totally won me over.

And as for the sexy Dracula...well, all during church this morning, I was thinking not so pure thoughts about what a sexy Drac he made. Whew. Even my dh said what a good-looking guy GB is.

You are not the only one living under a rock.

I didn't realize he was the phantom. Now I know why I thought the actor was so sexy in that movie. ;)

Glad you enjoyed the film.

Heather, LOL! Now I don't feel so out of touch.

He was a great Phantom, too, by golly. Yes he was. I can watch "The Point of No Return" scene over and over and over.

This has nothing to do with the topic at hand, but had to reassure you that I DID give Diana hugs for you at the NYC party. She looked so confused when I said they were from you, but smiled and happily accepted them!

Yay, thank you Annie!! I'm so jealous you were there and I wasn't.

Hope you had fun!

I had a GREAT time at the party and it was indeed fabulous. I did a quick recap in my journal, but I didn't do it justice, merely because I had SO many other things to write about as well.

Wish you could have been there. I would have enjoyed meeting you AND I know you would have had an awesome time!

Hi, Colleen! I've just now gotten caught up from Atlanta and getting the kiddos. I love your blog!

I'm a huge Gerry fan. When I watch Phantom, I play "The Point of No Return" at least five times. And I cry every time I watch Dear Frankie. Ah...

I thought Dracula 2000 was a crapfest, but I'll still watch it for Gerry, though I like him scruffier, a la Tomb Raider and Reign of Fire. The Game of their Lives, now called Miracle Match, is coming out on DVD in September, and Beowulf and Grendel is coming out around then, as well.

I did see Timeline on SciFi the other night, another crummy movie. But I love to listen to Gerry!

Hey Cindy! Glad to "see" you! Had such fun meeting you in ATL.

And Mary...I agree Dracula 2000 was horrible...but Gerry was H-O-T and made it worth watching.

Ah, a Gerry conversation! I am SO there! Thanks for the comment on my blog...isn't that quilt YUMMY? Can you imagine lying beneath it? Gerry stole my heart in Phantom but he made one heart-throb vampire in Dracula too!

Oh, and wanted to tell you how much I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your book cover! As a historical Gothic writer, that cover just speaks to me. Can't wait to read the book!

Thank you for the compliments on my cover, Leslie!

I love historical gothics--I wish they would make a stronger come back. Maybe they will. I'm reading Eve Silver's Dark Desires now and really enjoying it.

And as for the Gerry convo--we often have them over at the Wet Noodle Posse blog, feel free to stop by!

What a lovely picture!

I've never heard of Gerry Butler. I may have to watch Dracula 2000.

Oh, no, Karen...don't let Drac 2000 be your intro to Gerry. Hot as he is, the movie's awful.

If you want the best intro to him, watch Phantom of the Opera. That's Gerard Butler at his yummiest best!
