NC SCREAMS: List of Horror Movies Filmed In North Carolina

Halloween is just a few days away. Get into the "spooky spirit" of things by grabbing some buttery popcorn and watching a horror flick that was filmed in the great state of North Carolina!

North Carolina has had over 800 films and television shows filmed in the state, including The Hunger Games, Iron Man 3, The Color Purple, Inkwell, Idlewild, Sleeping With the Enemy, Dirty Dancing, Domestic Disturbance, Lemony Snicket's Series of Unfortunate Events, The Longest Ride, Message in a Bottle, Forces of Nature, Dawson's Creek, One Tree Hill, Under the Dome, Sleepy Hollow, Secrets & Lies and more.

North Carolina's film industry is going through a rough time at the moment due to the realization that the state's film tax incentive is set to expire at the end of the year. North Carolina's film industry creates thousands of jobs and keeps hundreds of millions of dollars flowing into the state's economy. However, even with those facts; the film tax incentive is being gutted.

Hopefully NC voters will let their voices be heard when they vote.

One stop voting (early voting) is currently underway in North Carolina.

North Carolina voters can vote early from October 23 - November 1.

 In the meantime...watch a North Carolina filmed horror movie.

Well I have to say, author, Tara Sue Me, is keeping things quite interesting with her bestselling series, The Submissive Trilogy. Initially thought to be just a trilogy, this wildly popular series is gearing up for additional installments.. and chile...I am happy about that!

So big ups to Tara Sue Me for keeping the saga of Abby and Nathaniel on-going. It should be interesting to see the couple deal with the next phase in their relationship and of course the drama that will surely manifest.

On October 21, THE CHALET, was released.

THE CHALET is a Submissive Series novella. So, think of it as, book 3.5. In addition to this little gem that was released, Tara Sue Me, will be releasing a new novel in the series titled, THE ENTICEMENT, which will release on April 7, 2015.



Synopsis via Amazon:
New York Times bestselling author Tara Sue Me’s Submissive series is an international sensation.

Now, Abby and Nathaniel’s story continues with their romantic wedding and a honeymoon too hot to believe…

Submitting her body was only the beginning. Abby King didn’t know true passion until she gave herself to Nathaniel West, one of New York City’s most eligible bachelors and desired Dominants.

Now, on the eve of her marriage, she realizes all her dreams are coming true. And with a romantic honeymoon getaway planned at a secluded Swiss chalet, she’s sure Nathaniel will find even more fantasies to fulfill…

Nathaniel never thought he’d settle down until Abby broke down his barriers and changed his plans. With their wedding only weeks away, he can barely wait to possess her completely—heart, body, and soul—and show her the true meaning of being both a wife and a submissive.

Only Abby has one more challenge in store before she becomes his: no sex and no collar for one month before the wedding. Nathaniel is willing to give it a shot but he has one scandalous stipulation—once that month is up, anything goes…

Includes a preview of the next novel in the Submissive series, The Enticement…

Synopsis via Amazon:
New York Times bestselling author Tara Sue Me returns to the story of Abby and Nathaniel to explore the passion after the ‘Happily-Ever-After’…

Limits were made to be pushed. Abby West has everything she wanted: a family, a skyrocketing new career, and a sexy, Dominant husband who fulfills her every need. Only, as her life outside the bedroom becomes hectic, her Master’s sexual requirements inside become more extreme.

bby doesn’t understand Nathaniel’s increased need for control, but she can’t deny the delicious way her body reacts to his tantalizing demands… Between Abby’s reluctance and Nathaniel’s unyielding commands, the delicate balance of power between the Dominant and his submissive threatens to shift.

And as the underlying tension and desire between them heats up, so does the struggle to keep everything they value from falling apart …

 Synopsis:
Now comes The Dominant, the continuation of the tantalizing trilogy by Tara Sue Me, which has captivated millions… Nathaniel West doesn’t lose control.

As the playboy CEO of West Industries, he governs the boardroom during the day; as a strict dominant with exacting rules, he commands the bedroom at night. He never takes on inexperienced submissives, but when Abigail King’s application comes across his desk, he breaks his own restrictions and decides to test her limits.

Abby’s combination of innocence and willingness is intoxicating, and Nathaniel is soon determined to collar her as his own. As long as she follows his orders and surrenders herself fully to him, no one will get hurt.

But when Nathaniel begins falling for Abby on a deeper level, he realizes that the trust must go both ways—and he has secrets which could bring the foundations of their entire relationship crashing down...

Now, in the enticing conclusion to New York Times bestselling author Tara Sue Me’s Submissive Trilogy, the submissive and her dominant explore just how long they can make the pleasure last…

It started with a hidden desire. Millionaire CEO Nathaniel West has always played by his own strict set of rules, ones he expects everyone to follow—especially the women he’s dominated in his bedroom.

But his newest lover is breaking down all his boundaries and rewriting his rule book. Abby King never imagined that she would capture the heart of Nathaniel West, one of New York City’s most eligible bachelors—and its most desirable dominant.

What began as a weekend arrangement of pleasure has become a passionate romance with a man who knows every inch of her body and her soul – yet remains an enigmatic lover.

Though he is tender and caring, his painful past remains a wall between them. Abby knows the only way to truly earn his trust is to submit to him fully and let go of all of her lingering inhibitions.

Because to lead Nathaniel on a path to greater intimacy, she must first let him deeper into her world than anyone has ever gone before…

Side Note: Hopefully this outbreak can be contained. It is also troubling that health care workers who reportedly were wearing full protective gear, still contacted Ebola. At this point, it would seem more likely than not, that more cases will be revealed.

Book Of The Month: [October 2014] - GONE GIRL By Gillian Flynn

 photo aa90ccce-09ae-40c1-99f8-c9255c34b81f_zpseaa42090.jpg 


The October 2014 book of the month pick is from an author whose bestselling dark mystery about a missing wife and the man who falls under suspicion...her husband, is about to release this Friday as a feature film.

Gillian Flynn's novel, Gone Girl, has been on my must read list for a minute and I most certainly can't wait to dive into what promises to be a grossly fascinating, entertaining and intriguing saga; where everything isn't always what it appears.

Haven't read Gone Girl?

Head to your nearest bookstore and grab what is sure to be one of the best mystery reads out there.

As always.... Happy reading!

Amazon Link to Purchase Gone Girl in various formats: (Click Below)

GONE GIRL Amazon Link



 Synopsis via Amazon:
Marriage can be a real killer. One of the most critically acclaimed suspense writers of our time, New York Times bestseller Gillian Flynn takes that statement to its darkest place in this unputdownable masterpiece about a marriage gone terribly, terribly wrong. The Chicago Tribune proclaimed that her work “draws you in and keeps you reading with the force of a pure but nasty addiction.” Gone Girl’s toxic mix of sharp-edged wit and deliciously chilling prose creates a nerve-fraying thriller that confounds you at every turn.

On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick’s clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn’t doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams about the slope and shape of his wife’s head, but passages from Amy's diary reveal the alpha-girl perfectionist could have put anyone dangerously on edge. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media—as well as Amy’s fiercely doting parents—the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior.

Nick is oddly evasive, and he’s definitely bitter—but is he really a killer? As the cops close in, every couple in town is soon wondering how well they know the one that they love. With his twin sister, Margo, at his side, Nick stands by his innocence. Trouble is, if Nick didn’t do it, where is that beautiful wife? And what was in that silvery gift box hidden in the back of her bedroom closet?

With her razor-sharp writing and trademark psychological insight, Gillian Flynn delivers a fast-paced, devilishly dark, and ingeniously plotted thriller that confirms her status as one of the hottest writers around.
