My Hallmark Moment

Who would have thought that Bitter, Sweet would make it into a Hallmark movie?

You might have to look closely ..

The movie, November Christmas, was filmed in Wolfville, Nova Scotia, and while I knew some Nimbus books had been requested for the set, no one knew for sure which ones might make a cameo appearance.

Yup, that’s my book alright!!

Gotta say, this is pretty darn sweet!!

    How sweet is that!! Way to go Laura!

  3. That’s awesome! :)

  4. I hope I get to see that movie. That’s awesome. I’d get excited if I saw my book in a bookstore let alone a movie.

  5. oohhhhhhhh wow!! awesome!!!!!!

  6. Congrats! I’m not surprised, Laura. Blessings to you…

  7. That’s wonderful, Laura. What a fun discovery! I get excited when I hear one of my cousin’s songs in a commercial or movie, and I didn’t even write it. :) Those excerpted pictures should be treasured additions to your celebrity scrapbook.

  8. Fantastic! Now that’s product placement that I’m in favour of. What a lovely surprise.

  9. That’s great, Laura! It’s even better that you knew it happened (sometimes people are unaware of things like that!). Congratulations!


  10. Wow, Laura. What a thrilling moment. Surreal, I bet. How wonderful. There are moments in life when words just don’t adequately express such pure joy. I can feel yours all the way over here in BC. Congratulations!!!

    • I have to say, this was totally unexpected. I knew some Nimbus books had been bought for the movie, and several others were shown as well.

    What a neat thing to have happen. Maybe Bitter, Sweet will make it to its very own Hallmark movie. Is anyone out there listening? Congratulations, Laura.

    • Ha! “Bitter, Sweet” a Hallmark movie? I guess it never hurts to dream.. Thanks Penny. I’ll be in touch with you soon.

  12. That’s freaking SWEET!!!

  13. That is awesome!! You rock! :)

  14. Thanks, Laura, Roni,Tricia,Jennifer,Carol Ann,Lynn & Pauline!! Yes it’s pretty awesome and unexpected. I haven’t seen the movie, but my daughter happened to mention on her trip down this weekend that she was taping the movie then someone on Facebook alerted me to it so Mel had to investigate..

    Once you’re out there, you’re OUT THERE!

  16. That is wonderful! What a thrill that must have been for you.

  17. That is SOOOOO FUN! Congratulations. I would’ve laughed out loud and jumped up and down. And now I want to see the movie too. :)

    • I haven’t seen the movie, myself, but I’ll get to see it over Christmas when my daughter comes home.I can hardy wait.

  18. What’s funny is that my husband was at a shop in Wolfville one evening this week and the clerk there was excited and telling him about the Hallmark movie that had been filmed there and shown on TV. The camera crew had used their shop some of the time for its vantage point. I was able to tell him your book was in that movie.
    My gosh, Laura! It is amazing to me how much publicity your book has received, you must be so thrilled! Congratulations!

    • It’s strange, Lynn, because I wasn’t even aware that a movie was being filmed in Wolfville until right before it aired.

      My book seems to be showing up in the strangest places..Sweet!

  19. Wow! That is sooooooo cool!

    To you Laura Best. Besides, it’s a wonderful life, my husband and I think this is our favorite Christmas movie. It is heart wrenching and heart warming. To get Sam Elliott to play a lead. How lucky you made it and how lucky we are to read the book and see the movie. You are blessed. Happy Christmas’s forever.

    • Thanks fort dropping in Lois and for taking the time to leave a comment. “It’s a wonderful Life,” is one of my very favourite movies, but November Christmas is very near and dear to me. :)
