A BIG Thank You to Kyra Lennon for hosting this with me! (Honestly, she did most of the work.) You rock Kyra!
So here's my story. :)
Flesh-Eating Zombies and Evil Ex-Girlfriends:
First we need Erwin, he's the star afterall. This was hard for me. The problem was that all the guys I found were just so pretty. Not that I always hate pretty guys, but Erwin is not a pretty boy. This guy is the best I could do.
Next we need Sylvia, who is fairly kick-ass. (No, she's not the evil ex-girlfriend.) ;)
I think Emma Roberts totally looks like she could be sweet, or she could beat the snot out of you, depending on her mood. :)
The ex, Natalie, would look more like this girl:
Lastly, I wanted to cast Amy, the poor little seven-year-old Ewin and Sylvia are trying to protect.
Wouldn't you want to protect her from a herd of zombies?
And, of course, there are a whole lot of these guys:
(There were photos of actual people as zombies, but they were too scary. I must admit, if my book ever really became a movie, I might be too scared to watch it.)
Now for the song. I chose Parkway Avenue by The Gravities.
I realize you probably won't click on the link, which is fine, so I will tell you a bit about it.
First, The Gravities are my favorite little-known band.
(Odd fact: The lead singer, Dan Conway, is the cousin of John Conway-the keyboardist for The Bravery.)
This is a beatiful song about not being as over your ex as you thought you were. Which is a problem Erwin has in the book. A line from the chorus:
"I thought that I was over her, but she just looked so beautiful today."
Okay, you really should click the link and listen to it, 'cause it's pretty great. Listen to 'Beautiful Houses' while you're there, too. ;)
Now I can't wait to check out everyone else's!
I hate computers. For some reason I can't get the linky thing to work. (I did it before.) Grr. So, here's the link to the links. Sorry about that. :(
