Really quick, before we start, I have a COVER for SURRENDER THE SKY! It's very, very pretty :) If you're willing to help me out in sharing the word (possibly next week, or sometime thereafter), could you please drop your address here? A million thanks will be given!
Kyra Lennon has organized a fun bloghop for this lovely Friday, with more information here! Basically, this is what's up:
Almost all of us have imagined who would play the characters in our WIPs if they were ever made into a movie. On February 28th, we want you to “cast” your WIP, and post photos of the actors/actresses you would choose to play the characters in your latest manuscript. You don’t have to cast everyone if you don’t want to, just show us your MCs and tell us a little about them.
Also, we’d like you to tell us which songs you’d have on your WIP Movie soundtrack! This can be one song that fits the main theme of the story, or several songs that make you think of your story.
Sounds like fun, right? I thought so! Too bad I'm totally lousy at picking actors and actresses, but I'm going to give it my best shot for my upcoming release, SURRENDER THE SKY, which is the third book in the Sary Society series (though they're all stand-alones, too, so there's that :). Anyhow, here's who I had in mind:
Okay, there are a few more I could show, but these are a few of the main characters for SURRENDER THE SKY. Hopefully I've peaked your interested a little :)
When Gabby’s most difficult charge accidentally shoots her in front of a class full of students, the event exposes her carefully hidden identity. She shifts from looking like a normal teen to her secret Sary form, revealing her wings and the existence of her kind—immortals who try to keep people from committing suicide. Her incident attracts the attention of the next leader of the Sary, Jassen, who offers her an impossible bargain: She can keep her wings if she makes amends with those who know the truth. Things get more complicated when a rebel Sary, intent on exposing them to the world, starts interfering with Gabby’s work. And there’s no denying her attraction to Jassen, who is torn between his duties and his heart. With threats at every turn, and her immortality on the line, Gabby has to find a way to save the Sary or surrender the sky forever.
I almost forgot a song! Actually, A Thousand Years was my theme song for this book. Mainly because it suits Gabby and Jassen's relationship perfectly. It's annoying to me that it was taken for Twilight first, but that can't be helped...
