Book to Movie: Double Christmas Giveway

Angels Sing (movie)Almost everyone has a favorite holiday movie, and many families (including mine) make a point of setting aside a few nights for family viewing time. One of the newest entries in the Christmas movie catalog is Angels Sing, which is based on a short holiday novel by Turk Pipkin.

Pipkin--author, actor, screenwriter, and stand-up comic--wrote a touching story about families, fathers and sons, and the Christmas spirit. The movie, based on the book, is now out on BluRay/DVD. Here's the studio's summary:

Harry Connick Jr. stars as Michael Walker, who, as a child, wished every day was Christmas. That is, until a tragic accident crushed his holiday spirit. Thirty years later, Michael still can't muster any joy for Christmas, despite encouragement from his playful wife (Connie Britton) and well-intentioned parents (Kris Kristofferson and Fionnula Flanagan). But when his young son (Chandler Canterbury) faces a tragedy, Michael needs to make amends with his past. A mysterious man named Nick (Willie Nelson) gives Michael a gift that instills in him the courage to find the Christmas joy that he lost.
With a such a star-studded (musician-studded) cast, Angel Sings holds a lot of promise. Among the cast is Lyle Lovett and author Turk Pipkin as well as a number of other familiar faces. The movie is appropriate for the whole family, so make some popcorn and hot chocolate and get ready for a sweet Christmas story.

For more about the movie, including photos, social media links, and the film's contributions to charity, visit the Angels Sing website.

The Giveaway

Thanks to Think Jam and Lionsgate plus Cowgirl Up Entertainment, I'm pleased to offer one of my readers (with a U.S. mailing address) a great Christmas-season prize pack of both the movie Angels Sing and the book by Turk Pipkin. Because the holiday is almost here, I'm going to make this a quick giveaway. I'll pick a winner on Tuesday, December 23 via random number generator, and the movie and book will be sent to you as soon as possible.

All you have to do to be entered for a chance to win is to fill out the form. Once the winner is confirmed, I'll send his or her address to the publicist (who will ship out the prize pack), and I'll erase all personal information from my computer. Good luck, fun viewing, and happy holidays!

I hadn't heard of this one - it sounds good. My favourite Christmas movie is probably Love Actually but unfortunately it's a little too risqué still for our youngest!
