When I Fall in Love - The Story and The Cast!
This year I'm taking you behind the scenes of writing, editing and publishing my fourth novel, When I Fall in Love. This week, I emerge out of my editing cave after completing the line edits to tell you about the story and share my dream cast...
I'm so chuffed to be able to say I've finished my line edit on When I Fall in Love! Sorry for the delay in making this vlog, but the edits turn me into a bit of a hermit by necessity, hence the blog silence. But I'm back now, and I have lots of exciting stuff planned for the next few weeks, including my location video that I shot when I was researching Brighton for the book and news of an amazing competition that I'll be launching, which will be of particular interest to you if you're part of a choir...
So, with the line edits completely done (I love seeing that fact actually written down!), I thought it was about time I told you what the story of When I Fall in Love is all about. Without further ado, here's this week's vlog - and then scroll down to see my characters and dream cast for the film (Mr Richard Curtis, please take note...)
p.s. This week's YouTube-nominated freeze frame is entitled, 'Things That Make You Go Hmmm...'
WHEN I FALL IN LOVE - Meet The Cast!
...because obviously it's going to be made into a film, right? When I write my novels, it always helps me to have a 'dream cast' - actors who I feel embody the characteristics of my characters and give me a visual reference. Added to that, it's fun to cast for a film - which is what most authors would love to see their books becoming one day. Anyway, on to the cast:
ELSIE MAYNARD played by Carey Mulligan
WOODY JENSEN played by Paul Kaye
TORIN STEWART played by Oliver Jackson-Cohen
OLIVER HOGARTH played by Tom Hiddleston
CHER PETTINGER played by Sarah Parish
DAISY MAYNARD played by Romola Garai
GUIN ROBERTS played by Emily Blunt
JIM MAYNARD played by Ciaran Hinds
What do you think? Let me know by leaving a comment below! I'm really looking forward to introducing you to these characters in When I Fall in Love... Coming soon, meet THE SUNDAES - the choir Elsie and Woody create!
