Dissecting characters

Usually while I'm doing a book blitz or launch, I get asked a question. "If this was made into a movie, who would you like see cast in the roles?" I get why. It helps the reader with familiarity while reading. Usually it's hard for me to cast but with Amethyst Chronicles, it's been a little easier.

Let's take a look, shall we?

Scarlett Johansson as Ember Wilson. 

I know what you're probably thinking. Black Widow? Yep. Anyone who as seen her as Natasha Romanoff in the Marvel movies or in Lucy will understand. Scarlett is attractive but not so much she's threatening. She is believable as a skilled, no-nonsense fighter. And she knows how to hang with the boys.

Liam Hemsworth as Major Liam Ross

Major Liam Ross is a tough cookie who meets more than his match when he meets Ember. He manages to overcome her hard exterior and sees a side she never shows anyone. He's a proven leader and ready for anything. I believe Hemsworth showcases these qualities and he's not bad to look at either.

Chris Pine as Michael Lewis

Although it would be a real shame to see his baby blue eyes turned deep purple, Chris Pine would be the perfect second-in-command for our tough as nails heroine.

Stephen Amell as Bryan Morris

Morris is the best tech guy the ISC had ever seen. Smart, quick on his feet, and crafty. May not always make the best decisions, but knows how to follow orders. He has a good sense of humor and is more than capable in a firefight.

David Wenham as Alexander Nova

In Amethyst, Nova is a pilot and, in my opinion, has some of the best lines in the book. Readers of my Mirror series could see similarities between him and Seth. Lord of the Rings fans would remember David as Faramir.

Liam Neeson as General Tom Blanchard

The moment I saw the General in my head, I saw Liam Neeson. He's the perfect man to control Earth's military and wouldn't back down to Ember, no matter how mad she is. He has the strength to do what he feels is right.

Kristen Bell as Laura Blanchard

Laura isn't a main character, but she does play a role in the relationship between Ember and the General. She's beautiful and sweet, although a bit flighty in nature. She's part of the reason the chip on Ember's shoulder is so big.

So that's my cast. Do they match up to the image in your head or have I hit the mark? Sound off in the comments!
