Mummies, villainesses, and a giveaway!

So yesterday I learned some horrible news. Like, truly horrible, the end is nigh kind of news. Steel yourself...

Hollywood is doing a reboot of The Mummy. In modern day. With Tom Cruise. And presumably, no Oded Fehr.

Recreation of actual events
Eventually I wiped my bitter tears of disappointment and read the rest of the entertainment news article to further prepare myself for just how sucktastically hard the studio was going to butt f*ck one of the best—IMO—movies in history. Not a lot of details yet, but I stumbled onto one shining glimmer of hope. The a WOMAN.


True, I have no way of knowing if this will remotely redeem this reboot, but it’s at least triggered my interest in giving it a looksie when it comes out. Yes, I’ll admit it, I’m easily influenced when it comes to female villains. I’ve even written my fair share of them. *cough* The entire That Old Black Magic series. *cough* I’m not really sure why I’m so obsessed with the lady baddies. My secret desire for world domination and my own legion of minions? Mmmmmmaybe. >.> All I know is that the first time I saw Michelle Pfeiffer as Catwoman, I wanted to grow up to be her. Or at least be able to fit into that skintight suit...

What about you? Let me know your all-time favorite female villain—movie or book—then enter my Rafflecopter for any one of my ebooks that feature their own lady villain. Good luck!

  1. Okay, Super Twin, I've got you beat. For me I wanted to grow up to be like Catwoman because of Julie Newmar and Eartha Kitt, both of whom got to kiss Batman. So there. Also, I'm still playing the who would be better in this movie than TC game in my head and I have a WHOLE LOTTA HOTNESS on my list. Hehehehe.

    1. Let's face it, just *not* having TC in it would make this movie 100% better.

  2. Ok, I totally love Devina, the super creepy demon chick from JR Ward's Fallen Angels series....she keeps a wall full of souls, but worries about the perfect lipstick! Lol!

    1. You know, I've never read any of JR's books. I'm probably the only person on the planet who hasn't. LOLOL. I need to get with the program because I've heard nothing but great things about her books.
