Whew! What a crazy week. Lots of good news. . . my editor tells me that Something About You is selling very well in book stores and as an ebook. Yay! And she also informed me that Just the Sexiest Man Alive is going into its second printing! Hooray!
Speaking of fun stuff. . . several people have asked me recently who I would cast in the lead roles of Something About You, if I could have my pick of all of Hollywood.
So let’s see. . . Assistant U.S. Attorney Cameron Lynde, the heroine, was easy. Easy because, truthfully, I had an actress in mind while writing her. (The first time I’ve done that.) I’m a big fan of the James Bond movie Casino Royale, and I love Eva Green’s character, Vesper Lynd. Smart and tough, yet still very feminine–exactly how I see Cameron. (Hey, I even borrowed the last name.) So here’s what I picture Cameron looking like:
The hero, FBI Special Agent Jack Pallas, was harder to cast. No actor seemed quite right. . . tall, dark, and sexy-dangerous. And then of course there’s that facial scruff that is just so Jack. But then I stumbled across this picture:
Yep, that pretty much works for me. 😉 (And yes, for those of you wondering, that is Gerard Butler.)
So how did I do? Who would you cast in Something About You? Let’s hear your suggestions for Cameron and Jack. Ooh–and how about Collin and Wilkins? Hmm… I’ll have to give some thought to those two. . .
