This week’s blog is about all dream casting for your book. I haven’t actually published a book, yet, but I have a current story I’m working on that I’m pretty excited about so I thought I’d use that one. I don’t want to give away too much about, but in short, this is a YA story about a psychic and a serial killer. Enough said.
My main character is named Francie and I have always pictured her as Felicia Day, although as a teenager. Especially with a hint of her character, Charlie, from Supernatural. A little quirky, but with a secret that she sides from a lot of people. But the look, total Felicia Day, the red hair, the smile, totally adorable.
Francie’s best friend is a kid named Will, or as I like to call him, a younger version of John Cho. In the book, his last name is actually Cho. I like this picture of him in particular because he looks a little younger and a little innocent. And kind of a like a guy in awe of his psychic best friend. But he’s also Francie’s rock.
The other character I can picture clearly in mind is the bad guy, the killer, Grayson Anderson. And for him, I see James Spader. A late 1990’s or early 2000’s James Spader. He can come across as utterly creepy and soulless, it just screams serial killer. His faces flashes in my mind when I write certain scenes. *shiver*
Those are a few of my characters from my current work in progress and my dream casting if it ever became a movie (and time travel were possible, apparently).

I *love* Felicia Day and I think she’d be a perfect Francie. Also? 1990’s or early 2000’s James Spader is utterly creepy and soulless. o.O
LOL I do the same thing, “Joe plays this character but it’s younger Joe not current Joe.”
Some day I’ll get to read this! 🙂
I’m not liking that I’m reading about and seeing characters I don’t get to explore further. 🙂 Great job casting. I adore Felicia Day sooo very much. And James Spader… brilliant choice for a serial killer. o.O
Now get writing so I (and everyone else has the opportunity to read this as soon as possible. I’m off to go pout in my tea. :-P)
I love James Spader. He’s awesome in everything he does and yeah I can see him as a creepy serial killer. LOL
James Spader. Perfect for a serial killer. But then you see him perform in The Office and you just think, “What can’t this guy do?”
James Spader.. Poor guy screams serial killer doesn’t he. Love the cast. Can’t wait to read the book. WRITE FASTER!
