Casting Call! - Your Say ...

I put up a post earlier in the week about a casting call for my novel The Hunted. Of course as the writer I always have set images in my mind of what the characters would look like, but it was interesting to get feedback from everyone else who they thought certain characters could be likened to.
Benjamin Stone
So it's only going to be a short post today. I just thought I'd post up your opinions and see if you all agree with each other. Of course, if The Hunted ever did become a movie, I would probably scream like one of those girly-girls and jump up and down until either my legs fell off or one of my boobs knocked me out. So keep your fingers crossed someone notices how awesome this series is going to be!

Heather from 'Buried in Books' was pretty happy with my choices for the earlier casting call, but she did make the suggestion of Benjamin Stone. I haven't personally heard of this actor before, but when I googled him, I was pleasantly surprised by his head shot. Yes he would make a great vampire, but I also think he'd make a great Lucas Manory too!

Ann-Marie from 'Confidence is Key Lingerie' was very passionate about the subject and had a lot of suggestions. Some of them I wasn't too sure about especially Darren Criss for the role of William - I just keep picturing him from Glee and it's not the strong male lead I'm thinking of! Also, not a big fan of Rodney Scott, but he does have a little something, something. And Greg Vaughan as the choice for Thomas Woodland? Let's just say I went to Google images and found about a hundred deliciously tempting Greg Vaughans - so I'll just say yes no matter which one we pick! However - I love the choice of Amber Tamlyn for possibly Elena, and I'm a lover of Emma Stone who has a lot of spunk.

And finally a good friend of mine, Narelle - She texted me a photo of Ian Somerhalder (Damon from Vampire Diaries) and while I wholeheartedly agree that he is a major spunk, he's also been taken by another show!
But anyway, it's good to see people passionate about this story, thank you so much for taking the time to read the blog and have an opinion - I love it!
Have a good one everybody,

Kristy :)

This week's question: Define what characteristics your favourite books share. Do they all have a kick ass heroine? Or is the hot love interest the alpha Male?

My Answer: Both! I'm always drawn to books with female leads - strong, independent and courageous. Plus it never hurts to have a hot male counterpart. But in all seriousness, as long as the book has a strong supernatural element - it's my kind of book to read!
Have a great Friday everyone, and happy reading!

Suddenly 30 ...

With my thirtieth birthday fast approaching and general concern about my body parts waving at me when I jump up and down, I figured it was time to kick my 'getting into shape' project back on track. I have been warring with my waistline for a while now, but as of this moment I have eight weeks to lose ten kilograms and finally achieve;
1. The passing wolf whistle from dirty tradesmen and old men with no scruples.
2. Free clothes from designers (What? It could happen ...)
3. Discounted airfares because I now have a few spare inches of space in my seat.
4. A free swimming pool because someone decided it would look great with my new bikini.
And of course ...
5. The ability to eat chocolate again without fears of my thighs plotting against me and taking over the world!
So, I started Zumba last night - just a little bit of extra activity to really shake those last few kilos.
No one told me you had to be coordinated.
Thankfully, everyone was so distracted by the sixty year old grandma in front of me wearing hot pants and no knickers that no one had a chance to laugh at my spastic shuffle.
You gotta love a granny with more ass than class ... literally.
So eight weeks and counting - thirty years old - two left feet. There are some things in life you can always depend on - getting older and always being an idiot.
Have a good one,

Kristy :)
