Movie Announcement: Juniper Smoke by Sadia Ash
Hollywood, CA – January 26, 2017 Juniper Smoke, a fresh new series about a nerdy curator, will now be optioned as a major film by Cinespots, Clover Entertainment Inc. and two other production companies (TBA). The Juniper Series is written by Sadia Ash and edited by Beth Bruno. The trilogy consists of JUNIPER SMOKE and KYLE & JUNIPER (Book I & II in one 700 page e-book $1.99, Paperback $17.99) and the upcoming, FINDING JUNIPER.
“Juniper Smoke cuts a sweet story of love and nostalgia with the razor edge of modern dating,” says producer Stephanie Johnson of Clover Entertainment. “It blends stark reality with the fun of a romance universe.” Johnson was key in bringing the Crossfire Series by Sylvia Day to Lionsgate and says in a film world lacking diverse female voices, Juniper Smoke is a welcome addition.
Juniper Smoke centers on the quirky affair of Juniper Mills and Kyle Paxton, who are as different as Red and Blue America. He is a micro-camera inventor from San Francisco and she is a sassy museum curator in Michigan. The sole caretaker of her autistic twin and comatose mother, Juniper was raised to hate all men. Haunted by Chloe’s ghost, a girlfriend who commits suicide, Kyle schedules dating with clockwork precision. When he falls for Juniper, his life spins off its axis.
“The series is an edgy drama with dark secrets, complex characters, mystical elements, and more plot twists than a Six Flags roller coaster ride,” said Tedd Faraone, President of Cinespots. “We look forward to seeing Juniper Smoke in theaters.” Cinespots is a distribution company that ran the novel’s book trailer in 108 theaters across America.
In an age of casual hook-ups, can love survive the test of time?
Juniper and Kyle meet when she is dangling forty feet from a museum scaffolding.
Juniper Mills is a straitlaced but sassy curator at a History Museum. Raised by her mother to hate men, she worries she’ll die a frigid scholar in a musty house with an army of cats and a lake of books.
Kyle Paxton is an intense and intimidating inventor of a successful micro camera from San Francisco. He schedules dating like his work—with robotic precision. This helps him cope with the dark memories of his ex-girlfriend, who still haunts him. Not looking for love, he only hooks up with Amazonian models.
When he joins the museum board, Juniper falls for him. She wants him, but knows it's going to be as hard as catching the ocean in a teacup. Juniper becomes Kyle’s obsession, but the tragic secrets of his past cloud his feelings.
Juniper manages to knock Kyle’s world off its axis and their galaxies collide in this very unfairy tale. But can they overcome their differences and stop a hateful and vindictive person from tearing them apart?
Juniper Smoke is a smoking hot read with fun twists, dark secrets and edge-of-your-seat drama. Nothing is as it seems and no one behaves as you would expect.
