My Next Big Confession...

12:01 PM Elizabeth Seckman 24 Comments

In the last couple of weeks, I participated in Eric Johnston's tag and an interview with Suzy Turner.

So, I got asked questions...posted answers...then my loving, loyal fans (that's a euphemism for family) went all negative and cranky with me!

Seems they didn't agree with my choices for actors to pretend play my characters.

Rumor has it, I may be out of touch in my selections. And there is a reason for that...

And here is where I confess, and then might have to relinquish my "cool girl" card...or admit that it may have expired sometime in the 80's.

My confession?

I don't watch television. I don't read "People" magazine. I don't flip on, oh hell, what's the name of that TV show that tells you what's going on in Hollywood? "Entertainment Tonight"...is it still on?

Anyhow, when I watch TV or a movie...it's usually family time...and for a chick who lives with five guys and has seen each of the "X-Men" movies a hundred times and "Dear John" zero...Hugh Jackman was the only dude that popped in my head!!!

And boy did I hear about it!

I guess there are better choices out there...

So, in an effort to appease my fans, AKA nieces, I am hiring (using that word very loosely) them to be my casting directors.

And since the fabulous Suzy Turner tagged me in "The Next Big Thing" blog hop...and since Hollwood hasn't called...yet...we have time to fix this.


Now I answered the questions last week (read them here) about "Healing Summer" which is to be released as soon as I get off my lazy duff and get it finalized.

There is a third book in the series (buy #2 so I can get contract for #3, kay?) and so...

1. Working Title? "Promise Me...Someday"
2. Where did idea come from for the book? A documentary on shipments of illegal vodka and the Russian Mafia.
3. What genre does it fall under? Women's Fiction (though I want to say romance)
4. One sentence synopsis? What's the worst decision a Russian mafia princess, on the lamb for murder, can make? To fall in love with an undercover CIA agent.
5.Self-published or agented or what? It will stay with World Castle if Karen wants it...and you do want it, right Karen?!!
6. How long did it take to write first? About a month, but it's been a year or so since I looked at it, and I can safely bet, it's a mess.

AND NOW FOR THE QUESTION THAT GOT ME IN TROUBLE!!!
7. What actors would you choose to play your characters?
(I'm doing all three books here. My casting director, Ms. Kari Dinardo, worked hard for this and they must be shared!)

Shenae Grimes would play the sassy, sucker-punch throwing Jane Smith,

AKA Anya Sarkhov in the third book in The Coulter Men Series.

And the oh, so handsome CIA agent who falls in love with her?

The youngest of the Coulter guys, and the one most abused by his big brothers, Trip.

Played in the mind by Paul Walker.

Poor Mollie...

Dumped at the altar and fighting a battle with her spirit and maybe her health~

The last thing she needs is the Alpha dog of the Coulter pack.

But she falls in love with him anyhow.

The less than sensible Molls could be Rachel Bilson.






Photopin

Can this guy be made to heal?

Mollie will try...

Mr. Bad Boy himself...though he's probably a sweetheart in reality:

Joe Manganiello

Photopin



And the trilogy begins with Jenna and Tres...star crossed soul mates

separated by lies and pride.

The widowed artist and single mom? Naomi Watts could do the job.






Photopin


The oldest, the most reliable, dependable and loyal to the end to his

first and only love...

Tres Coulter...or if he ever makes it to the big screen,

Patrick Dempsey.

  1. So, which questions do I need to answer, or is it all of them? Funny, I just did a movie cast for AT WHAT COST for a blog tour I'm doing. It should be posting sometime this week. After it's posted, I'm totally stealing the post and using it here. :)

    1. Go for it! I can send you the whole list of questions if you want...my post was getting long, so I went with a luck 7 approach!

  2. PAUL WALKER! SWOON.

    That is all.

    Oh, and watch more TV. It's not as bad as you think it is...okay, it probably is, but still. Some of it is good. :)

    1. I love to watch TV. I'm not anti-TV...I just never have time to do squat. And then when I do, the TV is set to football or something with bombs or spandex.

    2. Spandex can be good...on Paul Walker. Ha!

  3. I haven't a clue who any of those actors/actresses are. (That's why I don't pretend cast my books. It'd be embarrassing)I'm happy when I'm not forced to watch cartoons ;)

    1. I miss the cartoons...and regret getting the NFL network.

  4. Elizabeth, you crack me up. You're seriously SO COOL. I'm not a TV gal either, except for VAMPIRE DIARIES... oh crap, I just said that out loud... ;)

    1. I've never seen Vampire Diaries. I'll probably wait another couple years, then watch them all in a weekend like I do Sons of Anarchy.
      (and thanks for the cool vote!)

  5. Yeah, I think I recognized one of those guys... I'm afraid I'm in the same boat. I just don't watch TV anymore.

    1. Holy cow, Miss writer/PhD...where would you find the time to watch TV?

  6. I'm not familiar with the first two, which shows that I'm not a TV watcher. I have two shows that I DVR and sometimes I watch movies.

    1. Knuckle bump Medeia! Sounds like we're in the same boat. But you must be cooler than me...I think there were only two I knew.

  7. Expired "cool card" *snickers* You made my day :)

  8. Thanks for the tag, but as you know my blog is in flux, so I might not honour it straight away.

    My actor choices would be out of date. I read a daily paper online in UK, and I have no idea who they're gossiping about!

    1. No worries. I was trying to think of people with new reads to promote. I'm not at all offended if you can't get to it.
      (Glad I'm not the only one who doesn't recognize names!)

  9. Okay, Hugh Jackman will always be the sexiest man alive. Even when he's decrepit. You tell that to the fam ;)

    1. Well, Cassie, you should come hang with me for back up! (I agree, I think he's hot...but I also have a thing for Jason Stathom and they don't get that either)

  10. Patrick Dempsey is still pretty hot. I really like his acting.

  11. Anything with Paul Walker and Patrick Dempsey in it is super hot! The book sounds awesome. I would totally read it. I love it when characters who really shouldn't be together get all hot and romantically involved with each other! Thanks for the tag!
