Every Authors Dream

Besides being published, don’t you think every author would love to see their book made into a movie? I do.

It’s so much fun that Kyra Lennon and Rachel Schieffelbien are co-hosting this blogfest.

Rules:
Post pictures of the actors you would like to play characters from your book (how many is up to you). And post a song that best describes a character or your story as a whole. Fun, right!!!

This was so much harder than I thought it would be! Holy cow, Taggert was difficult for me. I looked forever!!! I think it’s because no actor was a perfect fit with how I see him. I also don't love Glee so that ruined things a bit, but Chord Overstreet is a good fit.


I picked 5 characters—the ones I love and hate the most :)

Jocelyn


Quite—Reserved—Kind.
Life circumstances have left her broken,
 but she has an inner strength that will ultimately win out.


Taggert


Charming—Risk Taker—Smart.
Unable to see his weaknesses, he hopes charm and intelligence will make up for them.


Breck



Funny—Loyal—Capable.
He’s always there to fix Taggert’s mistakes. Now, if he would just fix his own.

Leeci


Feisty—Independent—Unforgiving. 
She can be your best friend or worst ememy—your choice.


Prince Zven



Powerful—Cruel—Manipulative.
Best advice—stay away. No one lives to cross Prince Zven.


Soundtrack

I had an easier time picking a song, even though I don’t really use music as inspiration. The Reason by Hoobastank perfectly captures the twist in my story. I won’t tell you who it’s about, but my beta readers know. You’ll have to take their word for it :) I don't love the video, but I love the song!





Thanks again Kyra and Rachel. This was so much fun.

Heh, I picked Lucy Hale for my MC! :D All of your actors really look the way you described them, most especially Leeci.

Great choices! :D

I picked Chord Overstreet for my WIP too! haha. Guess he's going to be busy filming both of our WIPs!

Tobi Summers said...

Oh my God, is that Chord Overstreet AND Jeremy Sumpter? I'm there.

jaybird said...

I love Leeci. Could she get any prettier? Geez, not even fair for the rest of us girls. LOL

elizabeth seckman said...

Oh Prince Zven...I could change him!!! What a hottie. And that sword is just a bonus.

Kelley said...

I've seen Chord around this here blogfest :) But that's exactly what I picture, so great job! :)

Meredith said...

Oh my, Henry Cavill. He's in my book/movie, too. :) And I love that song!

Rachel Schieffelbein said...

Ooh, nice choices. I like this song. :)
Thanks for playing with us today!

Danielle B. said...

Leeci is smokin'! Love her eyes!

I play song almost everyday!

M.J. Fifield said...

I've seen Lucy Hale on a couple of blogs now. Should all our books becomes movies, she's going to be very busy.

Love Henry Cavill.

Cortney Pearson said...

Awesome cast! Nice job letting us know very succinctly who each of them is! I love the names of your hotties--Taggert and Breck? Swoon! And that is such a great song!!

Cassie Mae said...

Lots of Vampire Diaries people today! (Which I'm totally okay with!)

And Breck is mine still right? I've reserved the rights to him!

Amber said...

I love the cast. And I loved the song! great picks

Tara Tyler said...

so cool & love the character bios! hoobastank rocks!

have an awesome weekend!

Juliana said...

*swoon* Henry Cavill as Prince Zven lol
Such a beautiful cast!
Great job!

Theresa said...

Great choices! I don't know who the actor is you have for Breck, but hello! And I would love to see Chord Overstreet in something other than Glee.

I didn't click on the song because I know it will be in my head all day! lol. One of my faves :)

Shiela Calderón Blankemeier said...

Nice cast - and I love your character descriptions! LOVE Henry Cavill!!Sounds like a winner :)

QueendSheena said...

Jocelyn seemed a little stereotypical until I read about the other characters. Then it all meshed. Good job with your W.I.P. Movie post. Besides the independent heroine is getting a little over used (to a scary degree). Leeci also has my interest.

Emily R. King said...

How can I hate Prince Zven now? HOT!

And Breck looks EXACTLY how I pictured him. Weird.

Chantele Sedgwick said...

Loves these! They look just like I pictured! I LOVE Taggert!! :D

Jenny S. Morris said...

Um I love Prince Zven!! I've never seen that video but it's so fun and I love the song.

Hope Roberson said...

Great descriptions! I think I'd be a fan of Leeci cause I like her dichotomy and could probably relate to her character (a little too well maybe) :) Good song too!

Angela Brown said...

Okay. So here's the deal. You'll end up with me at the movies watching your story play out on the screen just to drool over the people you've chosen.

Hot tamales and cuteness all over the place.

Daisy Carter said...

Hello, eye-candy! Where do I buy my ticket? ;)

Becky said...

Love Kat and Lucy! I'd definitely be seeing this movie :)

twentysomethingfictionwriter said...

Mmm...Taggert. Very yummy and the Reason is such an awesome song. Great job!

Jessie Humphries said...

This is so awesome. I did this about 6 months ago on my blog. I could always repost, right? I love your choices.

Brinda said...

I like your choices because they are so original. I do recognize a couple of them, but they aren't major stars. I like your casting!

Amy said...

Hot cast! And I love the names, really cool and original :)

Clare said...

Gorgeous cast, I especially like Prince Zven. And I love that song by Hoobastank!

Melissa Hurst said...

You have a fantastic cast picked out! I'd definitely watch if this was a movie:)

Jolene Perry said...

I'm all smiley because I've READ this book.

Wow. Taggert. Sigh . . .

yum

Larissa said...

Wow. I forgot about that song. I love it! Great post!

Jack said...

Beautiful music, oh, and love the post, too! lol

Ashley Nixon said...

Great characters! Leeci is a great name! And she's beautiful! I love Hoobastank!

Robin Moran said...

Just read the summary of THE ALABASTER REFUGEE and now after reading about your characters I'm very intrigued. You've got yourself another reader. :)

Pk Hrezo said...

Oh yes yes yes to Price Sven! *fans self*
This WAS so much fun wasnt it?! Love it!

Deana said...

I am loving your character choices! I would watch that movie:) And that Prince Zven...I want him for one of my own characters:)

Peggy Eddleman said...

Great picks! You've got some incredibly pretty people in your movie. :)

I've never done this before, because I can't even imagine how hard it is!

Leigh Covington said...

Oh, heck yeah! Love seeing these characters in a "visual" form. WOW! Perfect choices too. Love it!

Donna K. Weaver said...

I love seeing the pictures, but I deliberately left my characters somewhat vague in appearance. When my son, who's working on the cover, asked about things like eye color, I realized I hadn't even chosen one for the female lead. O_o
