WIP - The Movie Bloghop

 Today is Kyra and Rachel's "WIP - The Movie Bloghop"!

The Rules
Almost all of us have imagined who would play the characters in our WIP if they were ever made into a movie. On February 28th, we want you to "cast" your WIP, and post photos of the actors/actresses you would choose to play the characters in your latest manuscript. 

Also, we'd like you to share which songs you'd have in your WIP Movie soundtrack! Share several songs or one song that fits the theme of your story!

I've decided to share my dream cast for my novella, BREATHLESS, which is a YA Contemporary Romance. It's a twist on The Little Mermaid. "Breathless" will be published on April 1, 2014 and tomorrow I will be revealing the beautiful cover! You get a little sneak-peak with this bloghop. :) Be sure to stop back tomorrow to see my cover!


Lainey is main character in my novel and she would be played by Emma Watson. Lainey is struggling with guilt and pain after the death of her best friend. She's bitter and unhappy.On her eighteenth birthday, Lainey almost drowns, but is rescued by a mysterious young man. She becomes obsessed with finding him and in a turn of events, she rescues him.


Jon is the love interest in my story and he would be played by Ben Barnes (Prince Caspian). Jon doesn't know what pancakes taste like, how microwave popcorn cooks, or own shoes, and he’s just what Lainey needs. As the anniversary of her friend’s death looms, Jon convinces Lainey to open up and share her guilt. It doesn’t take long to fall for him. 


Peter is Lainey's step-dad and would be played by Greg Kinnear (Baby Mama, The Last Song). Even though she doesn't get along with him, he's actually a pretty cool dad. Also, I really wanted to share who I would have "cast" as Peter. :)

The song from the soundtrack I'd like to share is the one which sums up part of their love story!
