I was recently invited to share my thoughts on TV and film anthologies as part of a roundtable discussion, hosted by my friends Michael and the Cheetah from “The Inner Circle” blog. The result was terrific! Check it out and be sure to give The Inner Circle a follow for lots of fantastic movie reviews and more discussions about film.
Its 11:55 pm
I really liked the feedback we got from doing our first Round Table. Reading the various voices from all over was a lot of fun and so I decided to try this format again. I decided to chat about “Anthologies” and invite several new voices to chip in and share their thoughts about the genre.
In assembling this entry,which is basically an anthology in of itself,I found out why this is not a easy medium to tackle. The cheetah and I have tackled a couple of these films ourselves and have had mixed results. In discussing what makes a good anthology,I reached out to several writers whose blogs I enjoy reading to share their point of views about their favorite films and TV series.

My friend, Bryan Fagan, invited me to write a guest blog post, and I took the opportunity to talk about how I broke out of my shell to start an in-person critique group. Enjoy!
And while you’re there, you should start following his fantastic blog!
My good friend J.A. Sullivan is my guest host today. I’m always curious what she has to say and when she accepted my invitation it made my day.
I was part of her beta reading team a few months back and I must say, she caught me off guard.
J.A. Sullivan’s style of writing convinces you all is well. The setting is safe, the comfort is real and her characters remind you of happy memories. There were times when I swore her characters were in the same room with me.
Sometimes I still do.
