This is beginning to be funny

My friend Twist Phelan has noticed something that we here at the Burke household have been shaking our heads over.

Three television shows:
Kidnapped
The Nine
Bones

Three novels listed to your right:
Kidnapped
Nine
Bones

I'm the most popular author on television! Or not on television!

Yes, yes, it is just coincidence, but -- if some show is named Remember Me, Irene in the near future, I'm going to really wonder....

I just wish any of those shows was as good as your three books.

I was just about to say that Louise! Your three books are so much better than the show Jan, it's sad!

Weird though, isn't it?

Jan said...

Yep, it's weird!

Here's another weird bit of Burke title trivia. I wrote Nine, and it was optioned for film. While all of that was going on, I wrote Bloodlines and turned it in to my publisher.

Then, before the book was out or announced, I learned that a script had been written for the film of Nine, but a decision had been made to retitle it -- they were going to call the movie of Nine -- yep -- Blood Lines.

It's enough to make a person put on a tinfoil hat.
