2009 HOLLYWOOD BOOK FESTIVAL NAMES WINNERS

HOLLYWOOD (July 6, 2009) _ The Hollywood Book Festival has named John Lacombe's “Winter Games” as the grand prize winner of the 2009 competition honoring books worthy of further attention from the film and TV industries.

Lacombe’s page-turning thriller mixes international intrigue with an unlikely hero – the 24-year-old owner of a New Hampshire comic book store. His journey into the heart of North Korea to rescue his brother captivated the judges for the festival and is full of great roles for actors who are looking for an action-adventure vehicle beyond the conventional.

The author will receive his grand prize at an invitation-only awards ceremony to be held July 9 in Hollywood.

Let's put this into perspective; stainless steel, which is mainly used in rolex replica sale, only has a Vickers value of 200; only diamonds can scratch the surface of a hublot replica. The case of the Rado V10K is made from high-tech Diamond and the bracelet is made from caoutchouc and available in black, orange, red or blue. The rolex replica sale I really want to buy; perhaps one day. There are many other collections available from rolex replica sale: the Sintra, Integral, Crysma, Coupole and others. All replica watches sale are high quality timepieces. They are highly desired by collectors and regular buyers alike. If you're looking for a top rated replica watches sale that stands out from the crowd, then a Rado wristwatch is one you should definitely consider.
