Awesome JUST ADD MAGIC news for Cindy Callaghan!

Happy Friday, everyone! Here’s some incredibly awesome member news from Cindy Callaghan that’s just perfect to share as we head into the weekend.  I know what I’m going to be watching tonight! ~~~~ Hi As the Eraser Burns and fellow SCBWI-ers!!! I have some very exciting news to share! Just_Add_Magic_cover[1]I’ve long felt that my first book, Just Add Magic, had potential beyond print. And I’m excited to announce that on January 15th, Amazon Studios (yes, the same company responsible for the two-time Golden Globe winner Transparent) debuted the pilot episode of a Just Add Magic series! There is a direct link to the pilot from my homepage JAM-TW_Still_1 With Amazon pilots, the viewers (YOU) decide what is developed. So you can:

It has been very exciting watching my book “come to life” on the screen. I’ve shared tons of news clippings, behind the scenes photos, cast bios and more on my blog. I can talk about this for hours! But, lucky for you, I won’t. ~~~ This is wonderful, Cindy, thanks for sharing! I’m looking forward to watching the pilot and learning more about your book coming to life. Congratulations!! 🙂


When Kelly Quinn and her two BFFs discover a dusty old cookbook while cleaning out her attic, the girls decide to try a few of the mysterious recipes inside.  But the ancient book bears an eerie warning, and it doesn’t take long for the girls to realize that their dishes are linked to strange occurrences.  The Keep ‘Em Quiet Cobbler actually silences Kelly’s pesky little brother and the Hexberry Tarta brings an annoying curse to mean girl Charlotte Barney.  And there’s the Love Bug Juice, which seems to have quite the effect on those cute Rusamano boys…

Could these recipes really be magical? Who wrote them and where did they come from.  And most importantly, what kind of trouble are the girls stirring up for themselves? Things are about to get just a little too hot in Kelly Quinn’s kitchen.


About Laura Bowers

Laura is a writer, runner, reader, runDisney addict, and blogger at As The Eraser Burns, Joyful Miles, and Write, Run, Rejoice. In the past, she's been a waitress, telemarketer, cook, real estate agent, and during her college days, a costumed character at holiday parades.

Her first novel, Beauty Shop for Rent, a “Steel Magnolias for teens,” was inspired by a rusted sign by a charming old house, and now, she can honestly say that writing is a thousand times more rewarding than being a candy cane!
