The Tycoon’s Kiss…a made for TV movie?

Two years ago I wrote The Tycoon’s Kissthe second book in my Taming of the Sheenan series.  The Tycoon’s Kiss, is classic Jane Porter romance:  Troy Sheenan, a gorgeous driven tycoon falls for Taylor Harris, the smart, bespectacled small town librarian.

A year ago The Tycoon’s Kiss was one of four Tule stories being considered for a TV film by a reputable Los Angeles producer.  Discussions and film options take a lot of time and very often nothing happens, so I was really delighted when just a couple weeks ago the producer’s team sent Tule an offer to option Tycoon’s Kiss.  The story is  now in pre-production and I promise to share more once I have firm details.



But until then, I wanted to be sure you’d seen the UK cover for the book.  I love the illustrated covers for the series so much!  Which do you prefer, the American photo or the UK illustrated cover?


If you haven’t read the Tycoon’s Kiss yet, you can find it at these online e-retailers:
Amazon | Barnes & Noble | iBooks | GooglePlayKobo

One of the great joys of Tule Publishing is the opportunity to be creative at so many different levels.  Not only do I get to write the stories I know my readers will love, I get to work with talented authors on their stories, and then also take Tule’s terrific catalogue and pitch those stories to Hollywood production companies.  Romance writers know how to write a happy ever after.  Why not try to turn some of those amazing stories into film?

To celebrate the option of The Tycoon’s KissI have a fun giveaway:  a signed print copy of the story, plus delicious Mountain Chocolate, and a JP reader tote bag, and lots of reader swag.  Interested?  Tell me the last book you read and what’s in your TBR that you’re looking forward to reading!  Content ends midnight March 23rd with the winner announced Thursday, March 24th.
