Psst! Come here.

Thanks for the patience, guys.  I’ve been really sucking at the blog posts lately, but the latest winner for the Kindle Fire HD has been notified.  :)

Okay, now for today’s blog post.  You’re gonna want to read this, so don’t give up on me.  I’ve been staring at my computer for half an hour, trying to think of how to word this, but I can’t.  I guess they call this writer’s block?  So I’m just going to make it short and sweet.

Very short and sweet.

I’m not going to drag it out at all.

Or keep you guessing.

Or annoy you with having to scroll down a lot…

Because I just got a Mac and it’s the hardest thing in the world to figure out how to scroll down.

I can never find the scrolly bar on the side of the page. It’s extremely frustrating.

So if someone posted a blog post where I had to do a lot of scrolling it would piss me off.

Unless I got one of those magic mouse pads for the mac.  Not sure how they work, but it would be cool if it helped.

Because then when authors make long posts about how their book was optioned for film, people wouldn’t have to scroll down so much.

Did you get that?

:)   Both SLAMMED and POINT OF RETREAT have been optioned by a film producer!!!  I wish I knew how to increase the font on this thing, because I would write this sentence SO FREAKING BIG!!!!!!!!!


I am so thrilled and excited and happy for this and for you!! I really hope they get turned into a movie. I would watch over and over and again!! I am so happy for you!!

I’m so happy to hear this! I would love to see it on the big screen! These books were fantastic and I can’t wait until book #3 comes out!

Yeah!!! That’s amazing!!!!!

Hey Colleen! Congrats on the news!
I’m ridiculously excited/happy/relieved/and so-much-more that there’s going to possibly (hopefully) be a SLAMMED and POINT OF RETREAT movie!!
You’re amazing! loved both books and you’re writing is so…interactive and engaging and i just couldn’t put the books down!
Also, I know you love the Avett Brothers (I’m from NC <3) and I thought you'd love this:
:) congrats again!!

Just read both books within 24 hours and am so excited to see this post! Movies are never as good as the books, but I hope they are close!!


Congrats, Colleen!!! This news is butterflying awesome, it’s my today’s sweet! :D I hope everything goes well! I’m looking forward to seeing SLAMMED and POINT OF RETREAT on the big screen!!! :D Again, Congrats!!!!

I just finished both books
Right away I wished there was a movie to watch. I looked you up to see if maybe there would be a third book. I loved the way you let us know about the movie. I am so excited!!! It is so butterflying awesome. Thanks for writing such beautiful books.

This is just the best news ever !!!! :D I seriously cannot wait! Best books I’ve ever read will be on the big screen !!! :D congratulations xx

Great news! Congratulations to you! Loved the books, can’t wait to see them on the big screen!


You’ll be so happy about the Mac, when you get used to it! And I’m telling you girl – the scroll function is one of the (many) things you’ll be SO annoyed about, if you’ll occasionally have to use a PC in the future ;-) Just wait and see ;-)


About the film:

OMG! It’s amazing! That’s so GREAT!!!!!! Woooooooo-Ho :-) Can’t get my arms down. I’m so much hoping the film will be available in Denmark, when it’s done!

Lots of love from Copenhagen, Denmark <3 Love your work,


That’s really cool! I’d love to see it.

WOW – this is so awesome, definitely my sweet for today. Now we have to start submitting WHO should play Will and Lake.

The Logitech wireless mouse on my MacBook Pro scrolls just fine, even through 285 Butterflyin’ awful comments from people who are unwilling to accurately identify themselves, i.e.: stand up for what they say.

Butterflying awesome! Congrats!

Congratulations! Best news of the day! both book are great!

Holy sh-nikes thats awesome!!!!!!!! Congrats! I cant wait…..

😱 That is amazing news!!!! Woot woot 😃

OMG!!!! What great news!!! I can’t wait!
Btw, on a mac, first, you can change the direction of your scrolling (it’s backwards now) go into those little gears and press mouse or trackpad. If its a laptop, just drag two fingers down, if it’s an iMac, drag one finger down on the mouse. You should never have to touch the scroll bar. That’s why you can’t find it. :)

Holy Fucktastic!!!!!!! I can’t wait!!!!

Can I get a WHOOP, WHOOP? That is SO exciting!!!! And amazing!!! And must be a “pinch me” moment for you!!! CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!

That is so exciting congrats!

So exciting!!! Oh and by the way….scrolling on a Mac is the easiest thing. Just use 2 fingers to drag on the track pad…that’s it!

HOLY SH%T!!! I am so excited!!! CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!! I love seeing my favorite books “come alive.”

So proud of you and your accomplishments! I’ve sung your praises to anyone who’ll listen so this is gravy!

I knew it would happen. Congratulations a million times over! Can’t wait to see this progress and see who gets cast.

That is soooooooo amazing!!!! You totally deserve it, I have read both books multiple times and would be at the theater opening weekend!!

Woop Woop Woop….Fan…Bloody…Tastic. A massive massive CONGRATULATIONS. I’m so so please for you xxxxxxxx💗💗💗💗💗💗

oh my gosh! so cool!!!

Yaaaaaay! I was just thinking the other day how I would love the books to become a movie!!! That is awesome, congrats!

Congratulations….That is truly wonderful



so excited!!! now the question is who will play Will???

Butter flying amazing!!!!!!!

Tip for scrolling: out middle and pointer finger together on laptop mouse pad move up or down.. Scroll magic! Just remember 2 finger scroll! Hope it helps!!

Way to go!! Congrats…Can’t wait to see the movies!!!

OMG! YES! So butterflying awesome. Congrats!

Omg! Congratulations! It was bound to happen sooner or later! So excited for you! I bet Diego (I think that’s the name of the guy you want to play will..) is going to be hounding you now ;) . Sending out a prayer that everything works in your favor! Good luck!

Holy Shit! I just don’t know what else to say. So extemely happy for you!
