Some mornings I have to pull up Amazon or Barnes and Noble to see if it was a dream. I'm always surprised and delighted to find out it's true. I do have a book coming out a week from today. On my blog, I started the celebration by showing pictures of who best represents the characters in my book. So I thought I would share one of them here.
Vin Diesel is who I imagine as a secondary character, Jack, who appears in Circle of Desire (coming out 10/18) and again in Circle of Danger that comes out next year. I'm hoping all goes well and his story is the fourth book (keeping fingers crossed that Avon Impulse will want more from me). My editor already asked that I make the third book (they haven't bought yet) a certain other secondary character (Rex) she really liked. She has good taste by the way.
I usually have an actor in mind when I write my books. Helps me fill in physical traits (Jack has a shaved head, tats and piercings), though the character traits are from my imagination.
Then be on the look out for my blog tour that will start with an interview on Christine Glover's blog, Digging Out of Distraction. I do know during the tour, I will be giving away two $25 gift cards. [10/17 Note:This was changed on 10/15 to 1 $25 Amazon card and 3 $10 B&N cards - one per winner] One from Amazon (provided by Avon Impulse) and another one from Barnes and Noble (provided by me). I may have some more surprises, so be on the look out on my blog and website.

Don't let me hang out there by myself. PLEASE. And if you would like me to be a guest on your blog, just click on my website link above and email me (you will find it under CONTACT ME). Blogspot said spammers are bad about picking up email addresses off posts. But links must not have the problem.
So what is the question I would like to see answered in the comments? What actor have you imagined as the hero in one or more of your books?
P.S. Paula and I switched blog days.
