Bitter Sweet Author

We read Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet as our 7th pick way back in May of 2009. Then later it was named, for good reason, #1 book club pick in the Fall of 2009 AND Winter of 2010.

Jamie Ford, inbetween book signings, interviews, and readings, is cooking up his next novel titled Songs From the Book of Souls due to release early 2012. (I unsuccessfully searched for a description, sorry.) As you may have noticed we love to read books and then watch it on the big screen BUT Jamie just announced on his website yesterday that it won't be happening anytime soon with Hotel on the Corner. Not because Mr Ford hasn't been trying, I might add. While basking in the glorious success of his debut novel he has been unsuccessful in striking up an agreeable deal with Hollywood. (Sniffle, sniffle.) I'm not without hope since he said, "Forget about it for the time being." I think this could be a great movie. Don't give up Jamie! I am also happy to report that he is working on a Young Adult series! AND for other book clubs out there, you can call Jamie and have him participate in your book club discussion of Hotel on the Corner.
