Hello!! And before we get started here is your Random Wednesday Hotness!!

This week we're discussing who we'd love to star in a movie made from one of our books. That's kind of tough, because when I write I don't imagine someone from the movies or TV. My characters come to life in my head. They're real and maybe you can't see them, but I can. *sigh* I know, strange, but then again I suppose writers are strange. 

If I had to choose one of my books to put on the screen I'd love to see Dark Promise (the first book in the Promises series). Here's the cover for the book:

When I first created this series, I actually got the initial idea for Talon from watching the movie Peter Pan. I saw Jason Isaacs with his mane of black curly hair and I was instantly inspired. But I really think this man would make the ultimate Talon.

Wow! If I wanted children he could totally be my baby-daddy!

Anyway, I suppose since I picked a Talon I need a Joelle. The name comes from a friend of mine. She doesn't like it, but I love her name. I think it's so pretty. So I found this actress and her name is Kelly Brook. I think she's close to what I imagine Joelle would look like.

For Grimm, I would so have Chris Hemsworth star . . . because duh, Thor!

Channing Tatum could certainly play Charon.

Quenton took me a little bit of thinking, but I would put Tom Mison in the role. Because I love me some Sleepy Hollow, plus the man is an awesome actor.

And, that's my dream cast. Sorry for not including Reaper or Styx, but I just can't see anyone being Reaper right now. If I do think of anyone I will certainly post is pic. Hey, if you have any suggestions, let me know. Just drop the names down in the comments below.

Now run over and check out the other Blogger Girlz and see who would star in their books.

See you all next week!! -- Gwen

Huh, yeah even he doesn't look as if he thinks I'll be able to do this. Whatever . . . here I go:






Well, there you go. Now go over and check the other Blogger Girlz out and see what words they've come up with. And, hey, tell me your 5 words down in the comments below. It's so much harder than you can imagine.

Hello and welcome to the Randomness that is Wednesday. Today, we are talking about all things that we may or may not believe in. Obviously, since we're getting close to Valentine's Day, it's all focused around romance. Oh, before we get started, gotta give you all Wednesday Hotness

So our big questions of the day involve concepts I'm sure you would imagine romance writers would be all over. I mean we write about most of this stuff everyday, we gotta believe in it right? Wrong. Fiction is . . . fiction. A romance novel is a piece of fiction and nothing about it is real. 

I do not believe in love at first sight. I believe in lust at first sight. That's happened to me, and people I know, a number of times. But a true and lasting love takes time to build. Love that really lasts takes hard work and sacrifice. I do believe in instant attraction, as I've said. I'll tell you this really strange story to illustrate and it's totally real. So I was on vacation with a friend of mine when I was . . . maybe 16 or so. Her mother took us to this tiny church in the town where the resort we were staying at was. The time came in the mass (Catholic) when everyone gives their neighbors a "sign of peace." Depending on the relationship or lack there of, you shake hands with people. So I turn and, without really looking, offer my hand to the person behind me. As soon as we touch hands, it was as if this shock of electricity ran through me. I can't even begin to explain it. I looked up at him and he was staring down at me and I can't even tell you how long we stood like that. My friend finally said something pithy that broke the spell and I turned back around, but oh my gosh I still remember it to this day. 

Soulmates . .  nope don't believe in those either. I cannot believe there is one person in the entire world meant for someone. What if you don't live in the same city, state, country? What if that person has died? So no, don't believe in it. I DO believe that there are those couples who are totally suited to one another. Once again, I think it's due to them working together to make the relationship work. They truly love one another and because they do, they work to make sure they're both happy. 

I do believe in reincarnation because, I think we are just too amazing to only live once. We have lessons to learn for our souls to mature and the only way to do this is to come back over and over. I also believe that we come back surrounded by a core group of friends/family. Think about it, have you ever met someone that you just instantly clicked with? Like you know this person and understand this person and they know and understand you? I believe it's one of your core people.

Hmmm, now destiny is a different thing. I do believe certain things in our lives are fated to happen. I did a blog post awhile ago about how I met Jessica Jarman. The post was called Deep Thoughts for a Sunday Night and I wrote it on August 3, 2014. I went through how Jess and I met. If you want to read it here's a link.

So meeting Jess was really the jumping off point for my writing career. Maybe her career too, but you'd have to ask her that. I know that when we met I finally had someone who understand what I was going through. Someone I could bounce story ideas off of, run through plot points, and just talk about writing in general. She and I really pushed each other to write and to get published. She was even my editor on a number of my books. So, would I be where I am right now without the events that led up to us meeting? No, I don't think so. I do believe we were supposed to meet. Destiny. Fate. Whatever you want to call it, does step in and shove you toward the path you should be traveling. 

And those are my deep thoughts for a late Tuesday night. Do you believe in love at first sight, soulmates, or destiny? How about UFOs, Bigfoot, or astral projections? If you do, just let me know in the comments below. I'd love to hear from you.

Also, run out and check the other Blogger Girlz to see if they believe.

I'll see you next week! Gwen

Okay so villians are supposed to be those evil beings we root against in stories, movies, and TV shows. I'm betting though there are quite a few of us out there who love them. They make the story better, more exciting, or the villain is just so damn sexy. So I'm going to share with you the list of my favorite bad boys and girls. Oh wait! Before I do, here's Random Wednesday hotness:

Okay, so my list isn't in any particular order. It's just the ones who come to me as I type. See I'm bad, I don't do preplanning, not on my blogs or my books. Makes life just that much more exciting. 

1. Loki 

Oh yeah, this man pushes all my buttons. He's hot, sexy and just the ultimate bad boy. *fanning* Yeah, who cares if he tries to take over the planet or whatever. 

2. Captain Hook (Jason Isaacs)

As soon as I saw the opening of this movie with Hook without a shirt and all that wild black hair I was . . . hooked. ;-)  The man is hot and bad. I don't really watch beyond that point since he's fully clothed during the rest of the movie. LOL!

3. Cruella Deville

She's always been my favorite Disney villain. Well dressed, dramatic, and evil to the core. Yup, my kind of girl. Plus fashion wise she's got it going on. 

4. Dracula as played by Gary Oldman

Oh boy, did I sit up and notice when this man walked onto the screen. So sexy, so bad. Is it any wonder I love writing vampires. I watched this movie thinking Mina is so stupid, I would have so run off with him. 

5. Hannibal Lecter

I loved Silence of the Lambs and it was all because of Anthony Hopkins portrayal of Dr. Lecter. The man was a master from his voice to his movements. There was something very seductive and sexual about this ultimate predator. 

6. The Wicked Witch

I'm a pagan and witch, but I love this woman. She is truly bad and all for a pair of fabulous shoes. If that's not a reason for somebody to flip their shit I don't know what is. LOL! 

7. Loki . . . . have I mentioned him?? I did?? Well I might as well toss in another pic . . . you know since I have it

Anyway, those are my very favorite villains. Or at least the ones I can come up with right now. If you have any you'd like to mention just jot them down in the comments below. Also, you need to go check out the other Blogger Girlz to see how their favs are. I'm going to bet you Loki makes it on at least one or two other lists. LOL

See you all next week! Gwen
