Woot! I have a new Blaze out. A SEAL’s Seduction is on the shelves. It’s in the stores. It’s out there, just waiting to be read!
I’m so excited to share Blake and Alexia’s story. These are two characters who were so vivid in my head – So real. From their intense personalities to the fears that hang them up, to the strengths that let them overcome those hangups and face their fears. I love it when characters come together like that. The only downside was, for me, that the characters were VERY real. I know so many authors who create these incredible visual odes to their story. They find models or actors who look like their characters, make a collage or storyboard or something totally cool with colors and setting photos and key words. I so want to do that! I can’t though. Because nobody looks like the characters in my head. It’s sort of like when you read a story and see the characters in a certain way in your head -and it doesn’t even come close to matching the cover photo. Am I the only one who does that?
My narrow vision of my characters usually makes things like video trailers a major challenge, but I worked with Theresa at Premium Book Trailers and she rocked it. She totally honed in on the essence and images that made my characters seem real in my head. And she made a rockin’ video What do you think?
What d’ya think of the trailer? And what’s your visual process with the characters you read? Do they look just like the people on the cover of the book? Or do you form your own image, and ignore the cover?
