Available for Pre-Order on Kindle now. Releases March 1, 2017.

The sixth book in the “Dream Catchers Series” by Sandy Lo is now available for pre-order on Amazon Kindle.  “Spotlight” is the title of the new installment of the series, which releases March 1st.  The story is from the point-of-view of 21-year-old, Aylin Ashton, the daughter of rock star Jordan Walsh and famous photographer, Haley.

Spotlight” is reminiscent of the first book in the series in the way that Aylin, much like her mother, feels lost and lonely.  Aylin traveled the world with her father’s rock band, Tortured, has walked red carpets, met celebrity crushes, but missed out on a “normal” childhood.  Without any friends her age, and little dating experience, she finds herself clinging to an older man—Colin, her father’s tour manager.

The exploration of adult feelings while trying to figure out her college major takes Aylin on a journey of love, lust and living a life outside of her parents’ shadow.

“Spotlight” is available for pre-order on Amazon Kindle: http://amzn.to/2j7XVmU

To celebrate the release, Sandy Lo will be hosting a Twitter party featuring the characters of the “Dream Catchers Series”.  Stay tuned for details!

This is Sandy Lo’s 9th fiction novel.  She is a born and raised New Yorker, who is also an entertainment journalist, blogger and digital strategist.

Justin Timberlake Returns To TN Roots with the Pilgrimage Music Festival

unnamed(1)Actor and Musician Justin Timberlake continues to expand his role in the music industry by signing on as a partner and producer of the Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival. The two-day event transforms The Park At Harlinsdale Farm into an oasis of music, food, and culture set against the natural setting of this former walking horse farm located in Franklin, TN taking place September 24 and 25, 2016.

Born and raised in Memphis, Justin Timberlake will return to his Tennessee roots to not only come on board as a producer of the festival but to lay down roots literally.

“I couldn’t be more excited about becoming part of The Pilgrimage Music & Culture Festival. Being a Tennessee native and now a member of the community in Franklin, I have been watching the development of the festival over the past two years. For me, this is an amazing opportunity to help build an exceptional event and contribute to my community,” says Justin Timberlake.

Timberlake’s creative director Trace Ayala who is also a Franklin resident, couldn’t agree more. “Being a resident of Leiper’s Fork and the Franklin community, I’m thrilled to have this event right here in my own backyard! As Justin’s creative director, I’m looking forward to putting our stamp on this thing! It’ll also serve as a great stage to showcase the artists we’ve signed to our artist development company, Villa 40.”

pilgramage festival 2016Original Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival producers (Kevin Griffin, Brandt Wood, Michael Whelan) will work closely with Justin Timberlake, although he will not be performing this year, and Trace Ayala on the creative direction of the upcoming festival taking place September 24 + 25 as well as years to come.

“It really is a perfect fit to have Justin on board as a partner not only for his knowledge and accomplishments in the music industry but also his love for the Tennessee area,” says co-founder Kevin Griffin. “We are looking forward to introducing new fans to Pilgrimage and to the music, food, and culture of the southern region.”

The two-day festival, which is going into its sophomore year, has been hailed by Rolling Stone as having “established itself as a festival to watch” and will return with another incredibly curated lineup. Heavy hitters such as Beck, Daryl Hall and John Oates, Jason Isbel, and Kacey Musgraves will #MakeThePilgrimage to Franklin along with indie favorites including Kaleo, The Strumbellas, Shakey Graves and more.In addition to artists performing their own sets, Pilgrimage will feature Pilgri-mashups where one-of-a-kind pairings of musicians collaborate with one another on stage as well as the Kimbro’s Pickin’ Parlor stage featuring local artists. The family friendly festival also features world renowned children’s musicians as well as interactive activities throughout the day. REMEMBER: Kids under 10 get in FREE when accompanied by an adult GA Ticket. Last but not least, the region’s best food and drink will be on display as well as numerous local artists and artisans creating an all-encompassing festival experience.

Not only will the festival drive tourism dollars to Williamson County but a portion of each ticket sale will benefit the City of Franklin and Franklin Parks. In addition, a portion of ticket sales will also benefit MusiCares®, a nonprofit organization that was established by The Recording Academy® to provide a wide range of emergency financial assistance and addiction recovery resources to members of the music community.

“The Vampere Diaries” Announces Upcoming 8th Season To Be Its Last

The Eighth and Final Season Will Premiere Friday, Oct. 21, 8-9 PM

 After eight epic seasons of high-stakes romance, adventure, and drama, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES will come to an end after the 2016-17 season. The announcement was made today at San Diego Comic-Con® by executive producers Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec. The panel concluded with a farewell video from the cast and producers, which featured an exclusive premiere of the new song “Changing Tides,” by The Fray.

WATCH TVD’s Farewell Message:

“It’s so rare for a show to get to last this long, and what a privilege that Mark Pedowitz and Peter Roth have allowed us to choose the time to end the journey on our own creative terms,” said Plec. “It’s been eight of the best years of my life. I will miss it terribly, but I’m so proud to be here to see it to its proper end.”

“THE VAMPIRE DIARIES has meant so much to so many fans around the world, and has meant so much to all of us at The CW,” said Mark Pedowitz, President, The CW. “I am a huge fan of the show myself, and I’ve seen every episode. So I am very happy that we can give Julie and Kevin the chance to finish their story the way they have envisioned, and to give viewers a fantastic conclusion to eight spectacular seasons.”

“I feel so blessed to have been a part of THE VAMPIRE DIARIES. It has been a magical, thrilling, life-changing experience,” said executive producer Kevin Williamson. “Working with Julie and our amazing cast and crew has been one of the highlights of my career and life. At its core, the show has always been about family and that’s what we have become behind the scenes as well — one big family. And while it’s sad to see it come to an end, I’m thrilled to be back and part of the final chapter. We’re very grateful to our loyal audience — they’re our family, too — and we hope to say thank you by giving them the last and most epic season ever. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”

“The sun, the moon and stars aligned for me one day in March when I got the official call that I had been cast in this very special role as Damon Salvatore,” said star Ian Somerhalder. “I’m so very grateful to those who fought for me to have this opportunity (you know who you are), for those that have worked so hard to make this show happen, and to those that have loyally watched it, making it part of their lives. This show has enriched my life greater than anything I’ve done in my career and it will live in my heart. We are a family and I will miss you. Thank you again to this amazing cast and crew, Kevin, Julie, Warner Bros., The CW and the most loyal fan base the world has ever seen. Wow, what a ride.”

“Being cast in THE VAMPIRE DIARIES has changed the trajectory of my life, to say the very least,” said star Paul Wesley. “I’m beyond fortunate for the experiences I’ve had and lessons I’ve learned over the last seven years. I want to thank Kevin and Julie, as well as Peter Roth and Warner Bros., Mark Pedowitz and The CW, our incredible cast and crew, and especially the TVD fans all around the world who are the reason this show became such a worldwide success. I am beyond grateful to have been a part of it.”

The eighth and final 16-episode season of THE VAMPIRE DIARIES will premiere Friday, October 21 (8:00-9:00pm ET/PT), with a series finale date to be announced later.

While we almost had forgotten all about Mr. Lutz, thankfully G.H. Mumm Champagne featured him in their promotional short film to debut their new bubbly bottle. While it isn’t a big screen movie, we’ll take whatever piece we can get of this cutie pie! Check out the behind-the-scenes footage along with the short film “Mumm’s Daring Delivery” below!
