In the thick of it!


Hello to all of our supporters! It’s been a while since we touched base, so we thought we’d catch you up on Love Between the Covers news.

Over the past few months, we have made a LOT of progress on the film. We’re hurtling toward the fine cut stage, thanks to all the great critiques and kind feedback we’ve been receiving at our rough cut screenings. We couldn’t have made this film without our supporters and friends.

The film is taking shape thanks to the dedicated work of the amazing Bill Anderson, pictured on the left (white hair/blue shirt) at a post-screening discussion.

We’ve also been working with two brilliant animators, Sharon Shattuck of Sweet Fern Productions and Sofia Warren. You can see Sharon’s work in the new documentary The Search for General Tso. We’re also working with a talented graphic designer, Margaret Inga Wiatrowski, who is developing our website and brand identity. Take a look at our new logo!

 What do you think?

Our pickup shoots are finished! Laurie and Joe just got back from New Mexico, where they were catching up on our dynamic duo, Susan Donovan and Celeste Bradley.

 They also made a quick stop in Noraville—Boonsboro (yes, that Boonsboro), Maryland.

Back at the office, we’ve been looking at some gorgeous new material from Tim O’Donnell of Pixela Pictura, who visited some local bookstores with us (Annie’s Book Stop in Waltham and New England Mobile Book Fair—who have both been very kind to us). He took our huge romance haul back to his studio and shot some great, abstract footage of novels and people reading.

So gorgeous!

Stay tuned for another update once our social media accounts and website are up and running. It’s all happening, people. We can’t wait to share it with you.

Sorry to miss RWA! We're busy editing!


Hello to the loyal supporters of Love Between the Covers!!

We are in the thick of editing here in Watertown MA. Here’s Bill Anderson, our amazing editor, hard at work in the Love Between the Covers editing room. 

  And here’s a photo of our wall, with Acts I, II, and III mapped out (in three horizontal rows). 

It feels odd not to be at the RWA conference in Texas right now. But we’ve got so much great footage of the last three RWA conferences, we don’t need more, and it’s imperative to keep our costs down. 

As a thank you to everyone who is at RWA, and to all of our generous supporters, here’s a video segment from our work-in-progress rough cut of Love Between the Covers.  It's about RWA, from the beginning of Act II of the film:

Even though we aren’t in San Antonio, we’re thinking about everyone, watching footage of the romance community here in the editing room! 

With very best wishes, 

Laurie (and the rest of the Blueberry Hill Productions team)
