GUEST POST - STACEY WIEDOWER

Casting Now a Major Motion Picture


Ever since my new book “NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE” came out, the question I’ve heard most is probably, “Oh, my God! Your book has been made into a movie??”

To which my answer is, “No, but maybe someday!” No harm in thinking big, right? :)

Seriously though, with NAMMP’s title and theme, it only makes sense that we talk leading and supporting actors here today. And so, it’s my pleasure to introduce you to the cast and characters of NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE!

Amelia

Amelia Wright is played by Odette Annable. Dark hair, hazel eyes and an enigmatic beauty, with a girl-next-door quality.

Amelia Wright, a.k.a. Mel Henry, is the star of our feature. A small town girl at heart, she moves to New York City after college … and after her ex-fiancé rips her heart into a million jillion little shreds, leaving almost nothing left over for her or anyone else to put back together. When this happens, she’s basically numb, just going through the motions.

Fast forward eight years, and Amelia has built a new life for herself, with great friends, a great career, a great house, but one notable absence: love. Still agonizing over what she lost, Amelia turns to writing fiction to let go of the emotions she’s been bottling up since Noah broke her heart. She writes under a pseudonym in part because she’s shy, and in part to hide what she’s doing from Noah, who might recognize himself in her main character, Nick.


Noah

Noah Bradley bears an uncanny resemblance to this guy, Chace Crawford. Clearly a heartbreaker, right?

You probably hate him at this point, and with good reason. But every story has two sides, and as it turns out, Noah Bradley is as destroyed by what happened between him and Amelia as she is. When we catch up with Noah, he’s living a workaholic’s life in Dallas, Texas. Ever since his breakup with Amelia, Noah’s life has contained a void that he’s filled not with other women, but with his job. He’s an architect, and as we meet him he’s just been handed a commission that could make his career.

Once romance finally finds him, it begins to pierce Noah’s rock-hard shell. And that’s when we meet…


Erin

It takes someone larger than life to fill Erin Crawford’s shoes, and that’s why Jennifer Lawrence is ideal. Just pop some green contact lenses in those eyes, and voilà … Erin.

That’s right, none other than Erin Crawford, our leading lady from my first novel, 30 FIRST DATES. In NAMMP, you get a peek at Erin’s life before she starts her bucket list, her epic journey and her life-changing blog. In fact, thanks to our trouble-making leading man, you find out just why Erin was so desperate, lonely and fed up with love.


Colin

Colin Marks is played by Jake Pavelka, of The Bachelor Season 14 fame. No matter whether you love him or hate him (and the verdict is out), those eyes! That smile!

And just who is Colin Marks? If you don’t know, you’re about the only person on the planet who doesn’t. He’s only, like, the Jude Law of Amelia’s fictional universe.

The funny thing about Colin is that to cast his character I’m actually casting two characters—Colin and Nick, which means that in a sense, Colin is Noah. And this muddies up the romantic waters in both Amelia’s real life and the fictional life taking place in her head. Confused? That’s my intention! To solve the mystery of Colin, you’ll have to read the book. ;)



Book Blurb

Eight years after her fiancé’s betrayal rips her world apart, Amelia Wright is at the pinnacle of career success. Using heartbreak as her muse, she’s authored Shattered, a best-selling dystopian series that’s headed for the big screen. Though she writes under a pen name, she’s secretly scared Noah Bradley, her ex, will recognize himself in her work, and, worse yet, realize she's never moved on.

But in a world of Instagram and iPhones, she quickly learns it isn’t easy to hide in plain sight—especially after a paparazzo steals a shot of Amelia in a steamy encounter with the star of her upcoming movie. At the height of the tabloid frenzy, Amelia uncovers a secret about Noah’s betrayal and finds herself faced with a choice. Will she move forward with her new life of Louboutins, limos, and bullying paparazzi, or succumb to the pull of a past she thought she’d finally written off?
