Introducing: The Now Starring... Blogfest!

Even though it’s frowned upon to push your WIP as the next big blockbuster film waiting to happen, admit it, you’ve thought about it. Imagine what it’d be like seeing your characters grace the silver screen. I bet you could imagine a couple actors or actresses to fill the shoes of your characters. Well, my friend Lindz and I have some good news for you. Your story has just been adapted for the big screen, and you, humble author, get to cast it! Introducing The Now Starring... Blogfest! Have your cast list ready to share with the Blogiverse by April 25th, 2011. The premise is simple: 

1.       Choose 4-6 of your lead characters.   
2.       Let us know a little bit about what each of your characters looks like.
3.       Then, pick any actor or actress, they’re all at your disposal.
4.       Finally, apart from their appearance, what about this particular performer makes you think they’ll do your baby justice. What’s that special something that makes them perfect for the part? Their attitude? The way the walk? Their voice? Let us know. 

To join all you need to do is comment on this post letting us know your in, and also sign up using the Mr. Linky below. Be sure to spread the word, too!

But wait, there's more. Alexis and I have plumbed the vast depths of King Soloman's treasures and emerged with a couple Fabulous Prizes. Which include a box of Magnetic Poetry for Book Lovers, and a thing you can scribble on in the shower. The winners will be chosen randomly, thanks to (appropriately) But the real prize is by having a little fun while getting to know your fellow bloggers' characters a little better. Now, there's no wrong way to format it, so whatever works best for you is just right, but...
