Blog Tour: "Rebel Princess" by Anne M. Strick (Guest Post/Giveaway)


Welcome to our Virtual Book Tour Stop of "The Rebel Princess" by Anne M. Strick brought to you by  Reading Addiction Blog Tours.  

      THE REBEL PRINCESS is not only the inside scoop on how movies are really made. It’s also – to a degree – about some of the real people I’ve known - the actors, directors and producers I’ve worked with in my over-twenty years behind the screen in the film business. And its steam - which I’m told sometimes rivals that of SHDES OF GRAY - is the real thing. With a touch of dramatic license.

     Can you guess who some of the book’s characters are? The actress Lisa Greaves? Parker Howe? Bill Landsbergis, the director? I confess I modeled Davrena, the book’s protagonist, after the producer whose enthusiastic blurb is on THE REBEL PRINCESS’ back cover. I made six movies with her.

    The accompanying photos are from four of them: TAI-PAN, DRAGON - THE BFUCE LEE STORY, CONAN THE DESTROYER and DUNE. TAI-PAN was done in China; DRAGON in Hong Kong and Macau; and CONAN and DUNE, both in Mexico. That’s me, in costume on TAI-PAN, commandeered as an extra. And that’s me, barely discernible on the camera platform, filming DRAGON. The gag shot with Arnold and Wilt was made on CONAN. And with Sting, on DUN.E 

    The Arnold and Sting gag photos were the whim of Time magazine’s renowned Dirck Halstad, with whom I’d become buddies on the movie GREYSTOKE. It amused him to play a little at the end of a work day. I felt just as silly in the Sting shot, as I look - with the costumed villains (Kenneth McMillan and Paul Smith also) in perfect character -and I not knowing what to do!

The Rebel Princess
by: Anne M. Strick
Publishing Date: 9/14/10
Genre: Romance

An insider's first-ever behind-the-scenes scoop on how movies are REALLY made:  gritty, grinding, tunnel-vision labor, and relationship that last night or a lifetime.  Larger-than-life characters who live life with fervor, and contend with their own inner demons and one another, all in the pressure cook er of a location shoot in the exotic world of Mexico.  This romp of a story follows the making of a movie from pre-production through wrap.  A hotly passionate love story elevate the stakes.  
Complete with sex, suspense, and a possible murder.

Anne M.
