So it's that time of the month again . . . No, not that time of the month . . . It's time for this month's Countdown to THE LOST SAINT Contest! (Because TLS comes out this December 28th, in case you didn't know.)
In honor of the good news from last week (Recap: The movie rights for the THE DARK DIVINE have been optioned by Ralph Winter--Producer of the X-MEN movies--Terry Botwick, and Whitney Thomas at 1019 Entertainment!!!) I'm hosting a special movie edition of the contest this month.
I don't know about you, but the idea of a TDD movie makes me positively giddy. And I can't help but try to come up with the perfect fantasy cast to play the parts of my characters. But I also think it's really fun to see which actors my readers would love to see playing Grace and gang as well.
Which means I want you to suggest your dream fantasy cast for a THE DARK DIVINE movie!*
So here's what you need to do to enter this month's contest-
1.Suggest your dream casting pick for at least one of the following characters (you can do as many of them as you'd like--but you get a point for each one):
and extra credit to whoever wants to throw in a suggestion for Talbot from THE LOST SAINT.
2. Click HERE if you need a refresher on what the TDD characters look like. (Or want to find out in case you haven't read the book--and if you haven't, why not? ;)) But remember that you can be creative with your casting picks. Actors can always dye their hair or wear colored contacts etc.
4. Make your suggestions in the comments of this post. You get one entry for each character you make an actor suggestion for.
5. Earn extra points for spreading the word about the contest. 1 point for tweeting/facebooking. 2 points for sharing it on your blog/website. (Only 3 points total available for spreading the word. Sorry, no extra points for multiple mentions.) Be sure to tell me about what you've done in the comments section so I am sure to give you proper credit.
6. The contest is open until 11:59pm on October 4th. The winner will be announced on the 5th.
7. I'll post pictures of my favorite casting choices on the 5th also, and let you guys vote on the best choices.* And I'm sure there will be some bonus prizes for people who cast their vote--so come back for that.
So what can you win, you ask?
A THE DARK DIVINE Might Be Made Into A Movie Someday Prize-Pack!!
1. A boxed set of the X-MEN trilogy on DVD (In honor of my producers from 1019 Entertainment).
2. A bottle of custom TLS Nail-polish. No picture yet, but it's a pretty blue. (The nail polish can only be sent inside the USA, so if the winner is international, some TDD stickers will be sent instead.)
3. A signed ARC of THE LOST SAINT
Plus you can choose THREE of the following books from my Tenner friends:
1. A signed copy of PARANORMALCY
2. A signed copy of THE CLOCKWORK THREE by Mathew J. Kirby
3. A signed copy of PALACE BEAUTIFUL by Sarah DeFord Williams
4. A signed copy of PLAIN KATE by Erin Bow
5. A signed copy of PRINCESS FOR HIRE by Lindsey Leavitt
Okay, so go forth and suggest your fantasy TDD cast. I can't wait to see your suggestions!! And be sure to spread the word about the contest.
*Please note, this is all just for fun and amusement. It will in no way affect the actual casting of a TDD movie--if it's ever actually made--since I don't have any influence on casting.
