One of the coolest things that can happen to an author is that her book gets made into a movie, right? Okay, NYT bestseller status and lots of fans probably don't hurt either. I'm very excited for my friend, author Lara Zeises, who also writes as Lola Douglas, because her book True Confessions of a Hollywood Starlet was made into a Lifetime movie and it premieres on August 9. Joanna Levesque (JoJo) will play Morgan Carter/Claudia Miller, and Valerie Bertinelli is playing Trudy. I was hoping they'd cast Gwyneth Paltrow as Morgan's AA group leader, Carlie, but alas, she was busy filming Iron Man. Lara's having Lola Week on her blog, so go visit and see links about the movie and its stars.
While you're waiting for the movie, you can learn more about the (very good) book and its sequel, More Confessions of a Hollywood Starlet.
