What's up today

Hey all-

We had an awesome response to the TDD fantasy movie casting contest. I've selected a random winner, but I'm not done compiling pictures of the all the actors so I can pick my favorite suggestions for you all to vote on yet. Looking at all those pictures is a fun task--but a very time consuming one! Honestly, I must have been insane to think I could do it all in a couple of afternoons. *Hangs head in shame.*

So here's the deal, I'll announce the random winner today, and then post pictures of my favorite suggestions for you all to vote on later in the week (or possibly at the beginning of next week). Then you guys can vote for your favorites and we'll determine the ultimate TDD fantasy cast! And I'll give out bottles of TLS nail-polish to random voters!!

Anyway, the random winner chosen through random.org is: Jena
{Please email me at readbree(at)gmail(dot)com with your mailing address in order to claim your prize.}


Here's what else is going on in Readbree Land:

1. My agent just sent me the cover to the Taiwanese version of THE DARK DIVINE. Isn't it gorgeous?2. Did you hear that Gossip Guru Perez Hilton has been talking about THE DARK DIVINE? Be sure to go check out what he has to say, and then tell his readers what YOU think about TDD. (Pretty please?) I, for one, think that the cover of TDD looks totally awesome posted on his blog. And the post has done great things for TDD's Amazon ranking. (Thanks, Perez!)

3. TDD, called URBAT: THE DARK TALENT in Germany, has a great new website made by my German publisher. They even made a great German trailer. Check it out HERE.

4. There's a website called Storycasting.com that also does fantasy casting for novels. You guys should check it out and suggest all your great casting ideas over there, too. I probably should have used them to host this contest--would have been far less work for me! You can fan-cast TDD on their site HERE.

5. I've got tons of appearances coming up soon. Click HERE to see where I'll be in the next month.

Okay, now be sure to check back soon for our fantasy-cast voting (i.e. smackdown). Can't wait to see who comes out on top!

Looks like you will get the last laugh with Perez if it's helping you on Amazon! Go Bree!

Perez Hilton eh?... I think this means you're big time now. And that picture is hilarious. Of course we all know that Daniel totally beats that sparkly vampire any day.

The Taiwan cover looks amazing.

Jena said...

Btw that Taiwan is gorgeous! I love it!

Thanks again! :)

If you're on the opposite side of Perez Hilton, you're obviously doing something right.

Michelle said...

Well, what a load off of your mind it must be to finally know that you are NOT fooling Perez Hilton, no sir. That must have been keeping you up at nights, but now you can finally rest again.

I don't think I need to make a comment to tell him what I think about your book since his whole thing is talking trash. He obviously secretly loved your book, and couldn't possibly ruin his image by liking a story about a preacher's daughter.

I would like to hang out with you guys before you become any more famous. Please call me when you get a sec.

That cover is gorgeous!!!

Thanks guys--on the cover compliments and the anit-Perezness. Yes, I think I might worry if Perez was actually pro my book. The world might fall off it's axis if he liked anything at all.

LOL Edward with TDD :)

Michelle said...

Wow, that cover is beyond gorgeous! And don't worry about Perez. I really dislike how anything YA and paranormal is refereed to as being a Twilight "rip-off." People don't even bother reading the book, they just label it. Pretty dumb if you ask me.

Michelle said...

Yup, totally meant referred not refereed lol. ;)
