Nostalgia Warrior


The greatest films stand the test of time, speaking to us in different ways at various life stages.  Is there a movie that was a part of your life when you were younger that you see differently now? Like fine wine, has it improved with age or did it die in the bottle? Has maturity brought you new insights you missed in your youth? We want to know all about it!

Join us for "Then and Now," a bloghop hosted by Armchair Squid, Suze, Nicki Elson & Nancy Mock.  Tell us about a movie you loved when you were younger and have come to see differently over time - for better or for worse.  Please sign up below, then post on Friday, June 13th.

And now for a cover reveal. Jay Noel's Dragonfly Warrior cover was a big hit here a few months ago, so I'm excited to have him back to wow us again with the cover for Shadow Warrior, the second book in his steampunk series, The Mechanica Wars.

The agony of a failed quest haunts Kanze Zenjiro, but the betrayal by those he once trusted has turned his world upside down. With a heart full of hatred and defeat, Zen is desperate to return home and demand the truth from his father.

Meanwhile, the Iberian Empire sends their soaring airships and steam-powered giants into the Orient. They threaten to upset the balance of power, hoping to exploit the faraway land in their greed for the resources needed to power their machines. Zen and his companions must fight to keep the world from plunging into total destruction.

And at the center of it all is a nine year old boy with the power of a god.

Shadow Warrior's release date is scheduled for August 4, 2014.

No movie pops into my head. No, I take that back. I just thought of a scene in a famous movie that I've learned to see differently.

Love,
Janie

You'll remind me, right? Just as I'm reminding you to write a bully guest post by June 15th.

Love,
Janie

Wow, two covers in a few months? Go Jay!! I'm impressed.

Love the blog hop! I'm trying to cut down on my online time, and make up for the writing time I missed in April, so I probably won't participate, lame though that is :( I WILL come check out all of the cool posts, though!

Hopping over from Suze's blog. If Suze loves you, you must be pretty amazing :)

I lived in a suburb of Chicago for awhile...okay, it was in Northwest Indiana, but people there liked to claim Chicago, too :)
