To countdown the release of The Future of Us (November 21st!), Carolyn Mackler and I will give away one autographed Advance Reader’s Copy every week. Along with the autographed copy (signed by both of us), we’ll toss in another goodie that's book-related.
For our seventh giveaway, the bonus items are Bigfoot and Penguin breathmints. No, none of our characters have bad breath. In fact, our fictional world is full of minty fresh mouths. But there is a passing Bigfoot comment in the book, and Penguin is a very cool (pepperminty cool!) publishing house.
We'll randomly select one person who comments on this Future Friday post to receive both prizes. There’s no need to leave your email address, but do check back on Saturday to see if you’ve won.
This week, we want to know your favorite time travel movies. Here's a fairly thorough sampling of those movies from the past. Of course, there will be more great titles added to that list...in the future.
Here are our answers:
Back to the Future: Heck, my first skateboard was a Valterra splatterboard, just like the one Marty McFly rolled around on. That's how much I love this movie! Groundhog Day: Everytime I see it, I'm shocked at how perfectly it blends sweet and funny. A Christmas Carol: I can watch and love almost any version of this timeless (HA!) story at any time of the year.
Back to the Future because it was completely awesome and we discussed it practically daily while writing The Future of Us. Peggy Sue Got Married because the Nicholas Cage character was such a freakin' mess as an adult, and yet so endearingly cute as a teen. Midnight in Paris, which I haven't seen, but I've been going crazy all summer and fall because I haven't seen it and I know I'll love it. Does that make sense? It doesn't to me either. I should go see it tonight. Unless it's left the theaters.
