Charleston, SC, July 13, 2020– Vinspire Publishing has acquired the rights to the novelization of Christmas at Mistletoe Lake, a made-for-tv movie script written by Canadian actor Robin Dunne.
The novelization will be written by Robin Dunne who penned the original script. This will be Vinspire Publishing’s first full-length Christmas novel as well as the first acquisition of a novel based upon a screenplay.
Robin Dunne, a Leo-award winning actor, has had several starring roles in various holiday movies as well as previous roles in the Syfy drama Sanctuary and the recent Netflix series, October Faction. He also co-wrote the Roxy Hunter franchise for Nickelodeon and co-authored the novels for the franchise as well.
Penned as The Holiday meets Message in a Bottle, Christmas at Mistletoe Lake will appeal to viewers of contemporary holiday movies set in quaint towns and lovers of wholesome romances during the Christmas season. While the movie, which is produced by Chesler/Perlmutter Productions and will be directed by Robin Dunne, is tentatively set to begin filming this fall for a Christmas 2020 release, the novel is set to release on November 30. Prior to the book’s release, readers can expect behind-the-scenes videos from Dunne that will look at the transformation from script to novel, his writing process, and, potentially, scenes from the set during filming.
Vinspire Publishing focuses on publishing genre fiction and non-fiction titles for the entire family. Its entire catalog is available online at www.vinspirepublishing.com and books are distributed nationally through Ingram and Baker & Taylor.

It’s called “Suggest Me a Book” and allows users to post the types of books they want to read, even specific books like those that revolve around a French village or books that have a glitch in the matrix and anything in between.
So if you’re looking for a specific book, let the 368,000 people in this community help you out. If you’re an author, go make suggestions! It’s a great way to meet people and to talk about what we love to talk about—reading books!
A new year creates new excitement. Goals are set, resolutions are made, and changes are expected. We don’t always achieve what we set out to do, but we keep trying. As the old saying goes, nothing beats a failure but a try. So every year, people will set goals, make resolutions, and expect to see some positive changes in their lives as a result.
While we don’t set resolutions here, we do set goals, and we’re happy to say that, in 2018, we achieved 55% of our goals. It’s not a perfect score, of course, but we’ll take it. In 2019, we’re aiming for 100% once again.
We have AMAZING things planned this coming year, and while not all of them may come to fruition, that won’t stop us from giving it the old college try. This year, we want to do more than just sell books. We want to help build authors whose careers will take this world by storm. We want to do more for charity than we’ve ever done. And we want to make sure that every author published with Vinspire Publishing is proud to have their name on one of our covers.
We’ve got some pretty lofty goals set so check back often to see how well we’re doing! And Happy New Year!
For the first few years of our business, we sent out newsletters every month. Time passed, and things got in the way. Unfortunately, we let the newsletter lapse. Recently, we’ve rectified that mistake.
In the coming months, we have some exciting things planned for Vinspire and our readers, and many of those changes will be announced in our newsletter first, giving you the opportunity to know in advance, and possibly, win first.
