Another sin of another mother

 
Did you know you can't copyright a title? So some titles get repeated. For example, "Sins of the Mother" has been in book form and movie form a few times. Victoria Christopher Murray's latest novel has that title. Victoria is a wonderful writer and a wonderful person so I hope you all go out and buy her book! Just know that it's not the book that the LMN movie "Sins of the Mother" starring Jill Scott and Nicole Beharie is based on. That's my novel Orange Mint and Honey. Different sin. Different mother.

Yeah, I'm actually in the opposite boat. Apparently there was a sequel to SIXTEEN CANDLES called 32 CANDLES in quite famously in development hell for quite a while here in Hollywood. A few people have asked me if this were the novelization of that rumored movie. I've been tempted to tell them, yes, just to make the sale, but then you know, karma...

Who would've thunk it? The way Molly Ringwald is going maybe 64 Candles will be a big hit?!

Thanks, Carleen, for explaining that. We picked the title, Sins of the Mother back in November, 2008. Once your movie came out, my editor and I discussed the title, but it worked so perfectly with my novel. But, I loved your explanation - another sin of another mother!!!!

Victoria, That's right. Plenty of room for more mothers with more sins! Wish you great success with yours!
