Last Saturday night, George R.R. Martin announced on his personal blog that the HBO-owned Cinemax has optioned the rights to his 1989 book Skin Trade. A horror story which can be so successful as Game of Throne TV show. What do you think? Listen to him!

“I am very excited to announce the Cinemax (HBO’s sister company) has optioned the television rights to ‘The Skin Trade,’ the offbeat ‘werewolf noir’ novella I penned back in the late 80s. The deal is closed, and Cinemax has ordered the pilot script.”

Skin Trade focus on Randi Wade, a female private investigator, and her friend Willie Flambeaux, who happens to be a werewolf.

The story was originally part of an anthology that included tales from horror masters Stephen King and Dan Simmons.

Martin won’t be writing the show if the pilot gets picked up to series but Kalinda Vasquez, who is well known for her work on the Fox drama Prison Break and The CW espionage series Nikita.

Martin said that he is really busy with Game of Thrones. “I have this book to finish,” he wrote. “You know the one.”

Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you! Fall can be exciting.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
