Monday Mayhem – Fresh Starts

Posted on Jan 16, 2017 by Maggie Wells   3 Comments | Posted in Blog

I’m still working on finishing the draft of Easy Bake Lovin’ (Play Dates #2), but with the start of the Build a Book 365 day challenge I gave myself permission to play with one of the Silver Fox ideas I have rattling around in my head.

Meet Leonardo Sbaraglia. He doesn’t know it, but he’s currently serving as my hero inspiration. I promise, I will try to do him right. Ahem. I mean do right by him.

Finding photographs of heroes and heroines who fit the images in my head is not always easy, but I knew the minute I saw him, he was my man. More specifically, the man to model my hero, Dominic Mann on.

I’ll be sharing pictures of people who remind me of my characters as the year progresses. We have a lot of books coming in 2017-2018. I hope you’re ready to meet them all!

How about you? Do you picture famous people portraying the heroes and heroines as you read? Care to share some thoughts?

News and notes:

In case you missed it, LOVE & ROCKETS received another fabulous 5 star review! This one from Epilogue Book Blog. Check it out!

Also, GOING DEEP (Coastal Heat #1) and A WILL AND A WAY (Worth the Wait Romance) are both on sale for $0.99! Tell your friends!

Snowed in? Give LONG DISTANCE LOVE a shot. You won’t regret getting to know Jack and Ellie better!

    Lol ‘do him right.’ 😀 He’s a hottie! I never really used to take the time to find visual inspiration for my characters, but, man, it makes such a difference! Doesn’t hurt to have the eye candy, either. Hubba-hubba!

    He has very nice eyes! Nice choice.

    I’ve found that being able to visualize someone as you’re reading makes that character ever so much more real. (Of course, then it’s disappointing when the movie or TV show comes out and they look nothing like what your mind conjured up…) For the record, I heartily approve of your choice above.
