There has been a lot of Hallmark movie news floating around, lately... so I thought I would share some of the latest updates...
|Karen Kingsbury's Book|
A Time to Dance
News has finally been released on the Karen Kingsbury book, A Time to Dance, becoming a Hallmark movie. We first learned the possibility of this happening in September of 2014! I shared the press release, here.
According to Deadline.com, "pre-production is underway for the movie adaptation of Karen Kingsbury’s A Time To Dance, the first novel in her Timeless Love series, scheduled to premiere this year (2016!)."
I'm not certain which Hallmark station, as of yet, they will air this on.
Karen Kingsbury’s book A Time To Dance is available through Paperback, Hardcover, Audible Audio Edition, and Kindle.

Please Note: From what some of you have shared with me, I know you are surprised to see this story come to Hallmark. I have not read this book - so I cannot comment on it, but it is my hope Hallmark will keep to it's usual moral standard. If I hear anything different, I will be sure to let you know!
