An Alpha Males Take on FROZEN and a Fun Announcement!

Posted at Mar 31, 2014 4:33 pm


I am not ashamed to admit that when I took my daughter and granddaughter to see FROZEN in the theater I was completely sucked in by the songs, the story, and the animation. Yeah, I know there’s always a hidden message in kid’s movies these days. No more of the road runner outsmarting the coyote just for laughs. However, when we took the DVD camping with us this weekend and my husband (the alpha male) watched it, I was amazed at all the messages he found in it that I didn’t really miss, but didn’t zero in on like he had.

Yeah, I got the whole power of love, family, sisters-before-misters messages. But here’s what the alpha male found and I have to say I was very impressed.

1. First impressions aren’t always true

2. Don’t judge a book by its cover

3. Be yourself

4. Take action, perseverance pays off

5. Everyone has their own agenda

6. Family will always be there in times of trouble

7. Don’t close off opportunities

8. Don’t let fear shut you down

9. Take risks to find success and happiness

And my absolute favorite messages the alpha male learned from Olaf:

10. No matter how much you fall apart (literally) you can and should always pick yourself up and move forward.

11. Be optimistic

Pretty impressive, right?

I think, he was also highly entertained by the movie (and our daughter and granddaughter singing and acting out the songs). And though he loathed to admit it, he totally dug Olaf and the trolls. I think I might have to keep this guy around. J

And now for my fun announcement (drum roll please!) . . .

April 7-28, 2014 Avon Books will be celebrating the 3rd Birthday of Avon Impulse. Since I am one of the (as my editor likes to call me) pioneers of the Avon Impulse line, I wanted to have a little celebration of my own.

Each week during the Birthday Celebration I will be posting interviews with my heroes and heroines from the Sugar Shack series. Yep. Matt and Kate from Second Chance at the Sugar Shack, Dean and Abby from Any Given Christmas, and James and Kelly from Somebody Like You, will make a reappearance. And guess who’s going to be doing the interviews. Me? Nope. The one and only Letty Silverthorne will be jumping in to interrogate—I mean quiz—the couples she had a transparent hand in putting together! I promise I won’t even try to rein in my favorite backseat-driving ghost. So it should be fun.

The prizes for each interview blog will be a complete set of signed Sugar Shack books and a $10 gift card for Amazon or Barnes and Noble (winner’s choice).

Also, during the Avon Impulse Celebration, Somebody Like You (James and Kelly’s story) ebook will be on sale for only 99 cents! So tell a friend.

On the days of the interviews I will post an announcement to Facebook and Twitter so no one will miss out.

  1. Sounds fantastic! I love Letty and to have her interviewing is a fab idea. Three years already, huh? Wow, that sounds about right. I remember discovering your books when you were on the Avon Romance blog talking about football. We chatted even. My first contact with you. : )
    I’ll be by to read every interview!
    As for FROZEN, I haven’t seen it yet and probably won’t for a very long time – don’t go to movies anymore but I love the characters. I’m a secret Disney animated movie watcher. xoxo

  2. How exciting! Congrats. I love Frozen. Tangled is still my favorite, but Frozen and it’s girl empowerment is awesome without banging you over the head.
