I Saw It!

The promo ad for the Flirting movie on Lifetime.  Producer friend, Lucy Mukerjee, emailed me at noon to say the movie trailer for Flirting with Forty has been running on Lifetime today so I turned on the tv, watched one and a half Lifetime movies and then I saw it.

Snow flurries.  Heather Locklear at the window.  Music.  Sexy sexy tan half naked Robert Buckley.  The title, Flirting with Forty, and the words, world premiere December 6th.

World premiere.

I got goosebumps.   I still have them.  That’s my story.  That’s the book that became my life that became a movie that became everybodys story.

I feel the same giddy awe I felt the first time I saw my book, Italian Groom, in a store.  I’d spent fifteen years trying to get published.  I’d written twelve, thirteen rejected books.  I’d worked so hard.  Tried so long.  And finally, there it was, my baby, my book.

And now Flirting with Forty will soon be seen by millions.  Amazing.

Amazing.  And I saw it.  And if you should see the trailer, let me know what you think.


  1. Hooray!!!! I will start watching for it! I am so happy for you, Jane. This is a big milestone and precious time for you. I am hoping (I’m actually quite confident) that this movie will cause a huge spike in your book sales, also. I am excited to see what happens after the movie premieres!!

  2. Yay, for you, Jane! It’s all coming together for you. Did you ever imagine all those years ago when you started writing that you would see your story on the silver screen? Much success to you always.

  3. Yay!! So incredibly exciting!! I can’t wait to see the movie on Dec 6th!! That day I am with my husband 16yrs. I can’t believe it! I am also dying to see the trailer but I never get to sit and watch tv!! Hope you had a great weekend!!

  4. Jane–I saw it!!!!

    I too got goosebumps, a breathless feeling and thought–Jane’s book!! OMG! I tried to tell whoever was in the house–I was so excited!

    Can’t wait! We ought to do the countdown to showtime, ya know?

    Awesome Jane! So thrilled for you!

  5. It’s on the Lifetime website too but I can’t get it to play. ACK! I have the date marked on my calendar, and joy of joys, it’s after NaNoWriMo ends. This is so awesome and I can’t imagine how proud you must be.
