THE REVOLUTION OF MARINA M. NEW WEBPAGE IS LIVE!

Posted in The Literateria, Upcoming Events with tags , , , on 05/31/2017 by Janet Fitch

My shiny new webpage, at www.janetfitchwrites.com is live! It’s all about THE REVOLUTION OF MARINA M. and it’s a beauty.  Step into the world of the Russian Revolution and my adventurous young heroine.  It’s a work in progress but it certainly gives you a sense of the book. There’ll be excerpts, more photo galleries, but you’ll get a taste.

I’ll continue to blog here about writing and life, and the writing life, putting up my stories and observations, but the website will be all about the books.

Stop by, tell me what you think of it!

Posted in Moments of Clarity, The Literateria, Upcoming Events with tags , , , , , , , , on 05/19/2017 by Janet Fitch

It’s here!  The film based on my book PAINT IT BLACK is opening theatrically at long last in LA, at the Laemmle Music Hall in Beverly Hills, and at the Village East Cinema in NYC this week! I will be doing the Q and A tonight In Los Angeles with former student Lindsay Miller, now at Popsugar, and the powerhouse director Amber Tamblyn will be appearing three times this week, doing Q and A tonight with Amy Schumer, tomorrow night, the 20th, with America Ferrara, and the 23rd with Ira Glass.

The reviews have been a dream come true. Peter Travers in Rolling Stone, the New York Times, Nylon, Village Voice/LA Weekly  have all weighed in and the news is GREAT.

To celebrate the film’s release, I’ve been doing an Instagram takeover at my publisher’ Little Brown, giving some looks behind the book and into my world, exploring my  muses, disappointments, writing life and inspiration.

It has been a huge week–I just got married too… It’s all good but what an avalanche.  More soon!
