Somewhere in Manhattan, a Disney-Hyperion team is sorting through headshots to choose the models for the ALIENATED cover shoot! (ZOMG, pinch me!) That, combined with the recent Bunheads recaps and our discussion of books-to-movies, has me thinking of one thing: Who would I choose to bring my characters to life?
::rubs hands together:: This is going to be fun!
Let's start with Aelyx, (pronounced A-licks), my super-hot alien exchange student. His planet is much older than Earth, and individual races ceased to exist tens of thousands of years ago. Aelyx has bronze skin, long brown hair typically worn in a low ponytail, and chrome eyes. His likeness wasn't easy to find, but actor Steven Strait captured the look when he played Warren Peace in Sky High.
|That's a pretty good Aelyx! (No leather jacket, though.)|
|"Hot aliens? Hell, yeah!"|
There are a bunch more characters I could cast, but I have a sequel to finish. However, I hope my characters seem a bit more real to you now, and I double hope you'll add ALIENATED to your Goodreads shelf ----> linky <---- because Goodreads adds are better than chocolate! (And they don't contribute to the ever-growing junk in my trunk.)
Thanks for sharing my daydream. Now it's back to work for me. J
