*Big* announcement!

I can FINALLY make the announcement I've been wanting to share!

....

The Canterwood Crest series was optioned for a TV series or TV movie!!!

For real!

In February, I got an email from a producer at Breakthrough Entertainment who said she'd like to discuss the books. I passed her info to Agent A and they immediately started talking. While I waited, I tried not to get too excited because I knew how slim the chances were to have this email lead to a yes.

But it did! Cross your fingers that you'll one day see Canterwood on-screen! I'm so grateful to have this option and thank you sooo much to everyone involved.

Yaaay! :)

I had a suspicion that was what it was! I am reading BTB and I can see it very much as a tv show.

That is so great! Congratulations, Jess! And my little sister is going to be psyched about this news - she's been talking nonstop about Sasha & co. for the last few days, after reading (and loving!) Behind the Bit.

Yay! How exciting. Saddle Club is one of my fave kids shows... I still watch it on Discovery Kids. Part of the magic with that show is that everyone has different accents since it was a Canadian/Australian production. You should hope Canadians make your TV show. They make the best kids show. Looking forward to it.
