Win 500,000 Delta SkyMiles® with Travelpro®

My current suitcase is ready  to go to luggage heaven. We travel so much, I swear if I put a suitcase on the bed my clothes start crawling inside. I took a look at Travelpro luggage and it meets all my picky needs.

My last trip was a nightmare of flight changes and my luggage was heavy and not easy to steer. It ended up underneath and it didn’t hold up to the rough handling either.  Travelpro is sturdy and attractive with a wheel system that looks like it is easy to pull along. The piece I am looking at has a reasonable price point and Travelpro luggage is sold at JC Penny.

If the piece looks familiar, it is because you have probably seen it in airports. The luggage is popular with people that fly a lot and airline crews.

Travelpro has a  broad selection of luggage, everything from duffle bags on up. The Rolling Duffel caught my eye when I was at their website. It would be perfect for my son. He loves his duffel bag but carrying it through a crowded airport is no fun.

A big plus when you travel as much as we do is that Travelpro luggage is made of nylon fabric and coated with Duraguard so it stays clean and the large one I want only weighs 9 pounds. Being water repellent is important for my trips to Florida.

In addition to their excellent luggage, Travelpro is holding an awesome contest. Can you imagine having 1/2 million miles!?! That is 500,000 Delta SkyMiles!  That’s right, the winner  of the TravelPro sweepstakes gets 500,000 Delta SkyMiles. It is approximately 238,855 miles to the moon. If you win, all you need to do is find a space program that accepts Delta SkyMiles and you got a round trip!

Win 500,000 Delta SkyMiles® with Travelpro®

CFM readers only have to enter their name, address, email and phone to be eligible to win. If you can remember your name, are 21 or over and a citizen of the USA  you are qualified to win.  Click here and enter to win 1/2 Million SkyMiles and Two Travelpro Rollaboard Bags !

Be sure to check out Travelpro luggage and enter to win the Delta SkyMiles!

"Iron Elves" Trilogy - win a copy of all three books in this great Sci-Fi series!


Article by Suzanne Philps, photos courtesy Simon and Schuster

CFM Entertainment News, in conjunction with Simon and Schuster is proud to bring you a new giveaway – All three books in the “Iron Elves” epic fantasy series!

The final book in the series, “Ashes of a Black Frost” will be released on Tuesday, October 18th, 2011.

The acclaimed epic fantasy series Iron Elves by Chris Evans captured readers with A Darkness Forged in Fire and The Light of Burning Shadows, and now has followers eagerly anticipating the third and final in the Iron Elves series, ASHES OF A BLACK FROST (Gallery Books; October 18, 2011; $25.99).  Amidst a scene of carnage on a desert battlefield blanketed in metallic snow, Major Konowa Swift Dragon sees his future, and it is one drenched in shadow and blood.  Never mind that he has won a grand victory for the Calahrian Empire.  He came here in search of his lost regiment of elves, while the Imperial Prince came looking for the treasures of a mystical library, and both ventures have failed.  But Konowa knows, as do the Iron Elves—both living and dead—that another, far more important battle now looms before them.  The campaign in the desert was only the latest obstacle on the twisted, darkening path leading inexorably to the Hyntaland, and the final confrontation with the dreaded Shadow Monarch.

In this third novel of musket and magic in Chris Evans’ Iron Elves saga, Konowa’s ultimate journey is fraught with escalating danger.  A vast, black forest finds a new source of dark power, spawning creatures even more monstrous than the blood trees from which they evolve.  The maniacally unstable former emissary of the Shadow Monarch hungers for revenge, leading an army of ravenous beasts bent on utterly destroying the Iron Elves.  A reluctant hero, Private Alwyn Renwar, struggles to maintain his connection to this world and that of the loyalty of the shades of the dead.  And in a maze of underground tunnels, Visyna Tekoy, whom Konowa counts among those he has loved and lost, fights for her life against the very elves he so desperately wants to find.

And so Konowa sets off from this Canyon of Bones, pursuing his freedom from a curse that has cast his life in darkness.  For though his long, violent trek may indeed lead him to his destiny, he is ill prepared for the discovery he will make…with the fate of the Iron Elves, and the world, hinging on the courage of one wrathful elf.

ASHES OF A BLACK FROST will engage Iron Elves enthusiasts from beginning to end, as well as entice new readers as part of a series that is “a grand new entry in the field of fantasy masters” (Richard A. Knaak, New York Times bestselling author)—a Fall 2011 adventure not to be missed.










The final book in the series, “Ashes of a Black Frost” will be released on Tuesday, October 18th, 2011 but you can win a copy of all three books in the trilogy (a $46 value!) from CFM Entertainment News and Simon and Schuster!

For your chance to win, simply comment on this post with your name and email and you are entered in the drawing!  A winner will be chosen on Friday, October 21st and the winner will be notified by email.

Thanks to Simon and Schuster for offering this great giveaway!  Stay tuned to CFM Entertainment News for more great giveaways!

SAN DIEGO, CA, February 14, 2011… Surf dog Ricochet, the SURFice dog who raised over $70,000 for charity in the last 15 months, has been challenged to raise more money than TV reality stars in a breast cancer fundraiser called “Reality Rally”

“Reality Rally” is the brainchild of Gillian Larsen, a contestant on the popular reality show, “Survivor Gabon”.  Gillian was voted off durin

g the 2nd show, giving her five weeks in the jungle to create what has become known as the premier Reality Star fundraiser.

Reality Rally is a three-day weekend event in Temecula, California, April 15-17 intended to raise funds for Michelle’s Place, a non profit 501(c)3 resource center in Murrieta where women can go for help in coping with the challenges of breast cancer. Michelle’s Place was started 10 years ago to fulfill a 26 year old daughters dying wish… to provide a haven and support center for those battling breast cancer.

When Ricochet heard there was fund raising involved, she contacted Gillian, and asked if she could help.  An immediate “alliance” was formed.  As Gillian learned of Ricochet’s philanthropic successes, she challenged the 110 participating reality TV stars from 36 different Reality Shows including Survivor, The Amazing Race, and Big Brother to raise more money than a dog!!  A challenge Ricochet was very excited to take on while helping women with breast cancer.

Ricochet has raised $3323 in the last several weeks, leaving the reality stars in her wake!  The next highest fundraiser is Gillian herself at $1035.  But, the competitive nature of the other reality stars kicked in, and social media is burning up with the challenge, and threads are asking for support from their family, friends and fans all over the world.  It’s turned into Reality versus FUReality!!

There is a “reward” for this challenge too. Anyone raising over $1000 wins a Hot Air balloon adventure with Grape Escape Hot Air Tours. Ricochet and Gillian are donating their “reward” to “help someone’s spirits soar” as they go through the arduous treatment for breast cancer. Women can contact Michelle’s Place to enter a drawing for the hot air balloon ride.  But, the real winners of this challenge will be all the women with breast cancer that benefit from Michelle’s Place… very possibly saving their lives.

Please “get on board”, and help keep Ricochet in the lead while blowing the rest of the reality stars out of the water, and supporting FUReality & breast cancer!  Just click this link to make a donation. .

Part 2 of a 2-part interview with Jared Navarre lead vocalist & rhythm guitarist of the band Static Cycle.

There has been some PETA backlash over Bristol Palin wearing mink in the latest Static Cycle video. When you decided to on the mink did you expect the backlash?

No! We saw it and thought it was gorgeous. Alaska is different from other states. People wear a lot of fur around here it is part of our culture. Thank you PETA. [for the publicity]

Static Cycle's video "Inside This World of Mine" was shot at Alaska's beautiful Ice Museum.

Static Cycle’s video is shot in an ice motel. Tell us about that.

It used to be a motel now it is the Ice Museum. It can’t be used as a motel “because it doesn’t have a sprinkler system. (This is one of the few times that I have been speechless. I started to stutter and stammer in disbelief. ) Navarro laughed. The fire Marshall said no one could stay there because it doesn’t have sprinkler system to stop fires.

How did Static Cycle come up with the Ice Museum for your video?

We had heard of it. We researched it and saw some pictures of it. In this first single Inside This World of Mine we wanted to represent Alaska, which is our world and where we come from. We had this vision of an almost ice dreamland. We went searching and found it.  [The Ice Museum] turned out to be more impressive than what we had imagined which is rare. It was exactly what we wanted the video be!

Couldn’t help noticing all of you had on long sleeve shirts in the video.  How did Static Cycle get Bree Williams to wear a sleeveless dress?

Navarro laughed. She was a trooper. We had coats! It was about 20 degrees in there. It has to be kept below freezing to keep the ice [sculptures] from melting. (I’m thinking Dennis would have had to agree to have sex with me, for me to be in there with no coat.)

We would run her back and forth between the trailer and the set to try and keep her warm all the time. She was awesome! (At one point she takes off her shoes and runs in the snow. I’m thinking the whole band would have had to agree to have sex with me to get my shoes off in snow. )

Is there a bathroom in the ice museum?

There is a fully functioning bathroom carved out of ice. It is not actually operational. We said we were going to leave them a present.  He added they were kidding and would not do anything to harm the beautiful ice sculptures.  Everything in the bathroom and all the plumbing was carved from ice.

Can you imagine sitting on that toilet? It brings up images of sticking your tongue to a frozen metal pole.

(laughing) Yeah it would be difficult.

Tell me about Alaska Navarro became serious when he talked about Alaska.

It is a place he clearly loves. Right now. We just got our first major snowfall. Alaska is cold and beautiful. I think it is the most beautiful place on the planet. We are the largest state. It has a small town feel because we have a small population. Living is a little more relaxed. I think people here love a little more and really appreciate music cause they don’t get as many shows as large cities like LA. There are not as many calloused people as large places like LA or New York city. Lots of good people

6 months of night and 6 months of daylight tell us about that.

We are south of those very drastic changes. There are only really two seasons. We don’t get a long fall or spring. Like now it is still daylight but the daylight is lessening and we will have close to 24 hours of darkness here in December and January.  The crazier part is the light for 24 hours you don’t feel like you need to sleep and you have energy all day long.

How warm does it get there in the summer?

Summer to us is 70s. (I couldn’t help myself, I giggled.)

Navarre laughed. I know, I know. Sometimes it is I the low 80s and occasionally it will hit wi11 hit 90.

Navarre was prepared for my next question; I think he has been asked this one before. How do you adjust to the cold?

The same way you adjust to the 100-degree weather. Auto car starter, gloves, warm clothes, leave 15 minutes early.

When it snows here people gets some in a jar and puts it in the freezer.

Navarre cracked up laughingly. I can’t get out of house without stepping over a couple of inches of it now. If you guys want I can jar some up.**

**Free Static Cycle Jar of Snow offer – For just to easy payments of $34.99 (to cover shipping and handling) you can receive your free jar of genuine Alaskan snow. Dennis, Jared or Josh will scoop some up for you. Don’t accept a cheap imitation! There is the one and only Static Cycle Jar of Snow. You won’t see this offer anywhere else!Credit cards and COD welcome. Void where prohibited. Offer not valid inside the state of Alaska (everyone has their own snow.) Some age restrictions apply.

Thanks to Jared for being a good sport during my interview. We hope that Static Cycle and CFM will be together through out the exciting times they have ahead. (For the members of Static Cycle please be advised when I write part two of my autobiography I am probably gonna lie and say I had sex with one or more of you. Definitely Dennis.)

Tim Kring, creator of the TV series “HEROES” has a new book project “SHIFT” which will debut in August from Crown Books.

Set in the crucible of the 1960s, Shift is the story of Chandler Forrestal, a man whose life is changed forever when he is unwittingly dragged into a CIA mind-control experiment. After being given a massive dose of LSD, Chandler de­velops a frightening array of mental powers. With his one-in-a-billion brain chemistry, Chandler’s heightened perception uncovers a plot to assassi­nate President Kennedy.

Tim Kring visited the 2010 Comic Con in San Diego and brought along his friend Zachary Quinto (Sylar from HEROES) to discuss the project.  Tim was nice enough to take time out of his busy schedule to answer a few questions specifically for CFM readers:

Tim Kring and Zachary Quinto

CFM: Why did you decide to venture into book publishing?  Was it something you were always interested in?

TIM KRING: I had secretly always wanted to write a book, but as a constantly working writer in Hollywood, I had never found the time.  In the last few years I had been approached by my agency who had interest from some publishers for me to do a book.  I was extremely busy with Heroes and hadn’t given it much thought.  But then the Writers strike came along and I suddenly found myself with an imposed break.  With no day job in front of me I soon came up with the idea for the Gate Of Orpheus trilogy.  SHIFT, the first in the trilogy, goes on-sale August 10th.

CFM: What would be your ideal future plans for this project?  Would you like to see it end up as a feature film or television project?

TK: I am currently working on the screenplay.  It is an idea that could easily lend itself to a feature.  Haven’t yet figured out how it’s a TV show.  I’d like to see a series of graphic novels as well.

CFM: Regarding HEROES – when it was cancelled there was some talk of bringing it back in another form, is that still in the works?

TK: I feel very strongly that the fans deserve the series to be wrapped up in a way that honors the show and the fans’ commitment to it.  My assumption is that NBC shares this feeling and will revisit these discussions soon.  As the number one downloaded show in the world for the last three years, Heroes is clearly an extremely potent brand around the world.  It posits a universe with an endless number of characters and an infinite number of stories.

You can get your hands on what is sure to be an amazing read when “SHIFT” comes out on August 10th from Crown Books.  But exclusively for CFM readers, we have one advanced reading copy of “SHIFT” to give away now!  It’s easy to enter, just leave a comment to this post with your name, phone number and your favorite HEROES character and you are entered!  Winner will be chosen on August 1st and will be notified by email.

Thanks to Tim Kring for making the time to answer some questions for CFM and thanks to Crown Books for all of their help!

MPRM and Magnolia pictures has provided us with a great prize pack to celebrate the release of “THE OXFORD MURDERS”.

When an elderly woman is viciously murdered in Oxford, her body is discovered by two strangers whose lives are immediately changed forever: Arthur Seldom (John Hurt), a prestigious professor of logic, and Martin (Elijah Wood), a young graduate student who has just arrived at the university hoping to be Seldom’s pupil.

It quickly becomes clear that hers is the first in a series of increasingly bizarre murders, with each victim’s corpse marked by strange symbols. Professor and student join forces to try and crack the code, setting into motion an elaborate game with the killer with ever-increasing stakes.  As Martin gets closer to the facts, he grows increasingly unhinged from his grasp on the world around him.

The Twilight Saga Eclipse

Magnolia Pictures and mPRm is giving one lucky CFM reader the chance to win an awesome prize – a full sized “ONDINE” poster signed by stars Colin Farrell & Alicja Bachleda!!!!

A lucky second prize winner will receive some great Magnolia Pictures DVD’s!

This is a great opportunity to win a very limited edition poster signed by one of Hollywood’s biggest stars.

ONDINE is the story of Syracuse, a simple fisherman who catches a beautiful and mysterious woman in his trawler’s nets. The woman seems to be dead, but then she comes alive before Syracuse’s eyes and he thinks he may be seeing things. However, with the help of his ailing, yet irrepressible daughter, Annie, he comes to believe that the fantastical might be possible and that the woman (Ondine) might be a myth come true. Ondine and Syracuse fall passionately in love, but just as we think the fairytale might go on forever, the real world intercedes. Then, after a terrible car crash and the return of a dark and violent figure from Ondine’s past, hope eventually prevails and a new beginning is presented to Syracuse, Ondine and Annie.

So, how can you win this great prize?  It’s simple –

1. Visit the film’s official site at

2. Find out the name of one of the three producers of the film

3.  Leave a comment to this story with your name and the producers name and you will be entered to win!
