Remnates of Life by Georgia L Jones: Tens List: First Rule Publicity




1.      Gone With the Wind---by Margaret Mitchell

Who doesn’t love Rhett and Scarlett?  When growing up I saw the movie way before I ever read the book.  I loved them both. 

2.      Alice in Wonderland—by Lewis Carroll

I recall having this story read to me as a child and the images that it conjured in my mind.  Ironically I didn’t see the old Disney cartoon movie until after I saw the newer one with Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter in it.  Wow, what a difference from my childhood memories.  However, it inspired me to go out and buy the cartoon movie and I enjoyed all of them. 

3.      The Shining—by Stephen King

There has been some controversy on this one, but I can say I really liked them both.  I enjoy Stephen King’s writings and well…you have a story about an aspiring writer going crazy and mix in Jack Nicholson as a psychopath.  What more can you ask for? 

4.      Dracula—by Bram Stoker

Of course I love both the book and the movie.  They were very different in my opinion, but both offered a creative look into the legend and myth of vampires.  They also created a standard to which vampires are often compared in pop culture.

5.      The Harry Potter Series—by J.K. Rowling

They seem to vary quite a bit as the movies have progressed, but I still liked them and appreciate what was done with each of them.

6.      The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe from the Chronicles of Narnia—by C.S. Lewis

Great book and I felt like the movie did it complete justice.  They both offered a fantastic world of imagination.

7.      The Odyssey—by Homer

The book and the movie were different in relation to time constraints I would imagine.  The book charts the travels of Odysseus through decades of different adventures.  It would have been very difficult for a movie to live up to the epic poem that Homer had written, however, the movie was good and lent some grand images to the iconic Greek myth.

8.      The Sookie Stackhouse Novels---by Charlaine Harris

I read the books before I ever started watching the HBO series, True Blood.  I must admit when I first started watching I wasn’t particularly thrilled with it, but it didn’t take long and HBO had me addicted.  The books and the series vary incredibly, but both offer a view of the world that I find intriguing.

9.      The Bridges of Madison County—by Robert James Waller

This one is an interesting one for me.  I felt like the book really evoked a lot of emotion and the movie was a little less inspiring.  I also felt like they were really addressing two different things, however, each had their own attraction for me and I enjoyed both.  If I had to pick one it would be the book over the movie.

10.  Twilight—by Stephenie Meyer

I must admit that this wasn’t really my cup of tea, but, I read the books and watched all the movies so I wanted to include them in my top 10 list.  In comparison to one another,  I believe they did a good job of staying pretty close to one another with a few surprises here and there. 

Remnants of Life: Legends of Darkness by Georgia L. Jones
Genre: Urban Fantasy
181 pages

Dangerous Saviors… What would you do if your life rested in the hands of something that really wanted to eat you? Come journey through the realms of the next world where everything you know about Good and Evil are put to the test.

Samantha Garrett lives and dies a good life in the human world. She awakens a new creature, Samoda, a vampire-like warrior in the army of Nuem. She is forced to realize that she has become a part of a world that humans believe to be only “Legends of Darkness.” Samoda finds her new life is entwined with the age old story of greed, love, betrayal, and vengeance.

Join our heroine as she battles not just for her own existence, but for the entire human race’s future.



Georgia L. Jones was born in Columbia, Missouri on September 21st, 1968. In 1992 she settled in the beautiful Ozarks town of Lebanon, Missouri, where she met and married the love of her life. Together they have raised 7 children and have the 8th still in their home.

At a young age Georgia learned the value of getting lost in a good book. She has always enjoyed reading and letting her imagination run wild. In her early teenage years she began to put her own stories down on paper as she plunked out the words on an old manual typewriter.

In 1996 Georgia enrolled at Missouri State University where she majored in Psychology. While there she found an untamable thirst for Philosophy and Greek Mythology. Many evenings she can still be found curled up with one of the great Greek Tragedy’s or reading about personal continuity by Rene Descarte.

Over the years Georgia has harbored the dream of being a published author and written many short stories. On January 10, 2010 she embarked on the dream as she began to bring the characters from her first novel, “Legends of Darkness”, to life. Upon completion in June 2010 she realized that it was not a single book but a series and created the concept of the series “Remnants of Life”. She is currently working diligently on the “Remnants of Life” series.
