Casting Sam!!!

Casting Call Thursday.

Today we cast Samantha Summers. Possible soulmate to Max Valentine in the Ember series.

Kirsten Prout

I'm not too familiar with her work but I was pointed in her direction. She has the wholesome girl-next-door quality. Right age too...

Throw out a choice for any of the characters in my books and maybe they will be chosen.

See ya next week when we cast the "bad guy"...Devon Wahlberg.

Chapter 33 - RISING

Music Monday!

This weeks pick is filled with hope. OneRepublic's "Say (All I Need)" is the background music to one of the defining moments (and chapters) in Ember. It's one of my favorite songs and one of the hardest chapters to write in the series.

Check it out and enjoy...look...listen...fade away. M.D.

Ember Movie Casting.

Casting Call Thursday!

Another week, another choice for the next big movie franchise! Ember will be a movie one day...I promise you that! So, let's not waste anymore time and cast the series. Last week it was the hot-headed fire-starter Max Valentine. This week, the beautifully haunted rainmaker Asia Michaels is in the spotlight.

Asia needs to be tall, strong, angry and impossibly cold at times. With dark hair and crystal blue eyes. I have cast her role before (feel free to scroll the past posts to see...) but this week I'll go with a pick that was given to me...Amber Heard.

She is usually a blonde but with the darker locks she actually fits quite well...

Feel free to add your own thoughts and choice...we'll meet here again next week for another casting!

Music Monday Video.

Music Monday.

Bush: Letting the Cables Sleep

Setting a dark and haunting tone with a sliver of hope. This song can be found in the musical playlist of DOWNPOUR: Book 2 in the Ember Series.

Gavin's voice and groove has become the musical voice of my main character, Max Valentine. With his guitar in hand and flame in his heart...Max burns on.

Ember Movie Cast!

Casting Call Thursday!

I asked for some choices for casting Max Valentine in the inevitable movie but didn't get too many I'll throw out an older pick until some more choices are thrown out there...

Thomas McDonell

It's all about the bangs! While I wrote Ember, I saw Max with a hint of a Johnny Depp why not pick the young actor they're calling the next Depp. 

Let me know what you think and feel free to leave a choice of your own...we'll see ya next Thursday to pick another cast member for the Ember Series!

Burn on! M.D.

Music Monday - UK Style!!!

Music Monday's pick is the fabulous Noel Gallagher!

He is/was the heart of Oasis! Their vibe and emotional music really sets the tone of the Ember series. His new band/album is no different. If you haven't let this into your brain yet...then enjoy!!! Thank me later!

"If I Had A Gun...I'd Shoot A Hole Into The Sun..."

Look...listen...fade away...M.D.
