It's Day 9 of the Cocktails at Naptime Book tour and it's Vegemite Vix's turn to host. As well as giving the book a rave review she also mentions that it has the perfect plot for a Hollywood movie. What a fabulous idea Vix! You readers out there, please humour us with this little fantasy. At the moment I fancy Tamsin Greig to play me and Sue Gomez as Gillian (both from the crazy UK TV show Green Wing) but we are open to suggestions ...
There are lots of things about Cocktails at Naptime that make it funny. The back story for one. You see Emma and Gillian have actually never met. Oh sure they’re met virtually through their very witty blogs — MisssyM Missives and Mommy Has a Headache.
They’ve ‘met’ via emails despite one author living in Scotland and the other in the US, but neither of them have actually met their publisher, who hails from Down Under.
If that isn’t the plot for a brilliant movie, I wonder what is! Two authors meet virtually from different sides of the Atlantic and together publish a book with a publishing house based in Australia.… you can see the potential for great mirth can’t you!
Yet it seems as if they’ve pulled it off, and how! Not only is the back story amusing but the stories are funny in that they are true to life and there is nothing that is funnier than stories that are real, keenly observed, and faithfully retold with tongue planted firmly in cheek!
