YA INDIE CARNIVAL: Dream Cast for Vampires Rule

Okay, so this time around we are picking our Dream Casts for our latest book.  Since Vampires Rule is an ongoing series, I decided to do it for that.  Besides, I already have the actors picked out.  Now these people (most of them) couldn't actually do it if the thing became a movie because I tend to choose people from different times.  For instance, my pick for Jersey Clifford is an actor who was on Days years ago.  I doubt he would look the part anymore.  Anyway, here it goes. 

For Jack:  Either Thomas Dekker from Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles or Chace Crawford pictured here.  I think they both have a nice vulnerable quality to them.  Plus they're cute.

I think he would make a good Jack Creed

For Silver Reign: From OLTL Kristen Alderson pictured here:

 Don't know why, but I can see her kicking serious werewolf butt.  Can't you?

For Billy Creed: my favorite Supernatural guy Jared Padalecki pictured here:

 Wow!!!

Jersey Clifford: Kyle Lowder from Days (he was Brady Black)

 Ignore the girl. She's not in my book.

For Summer I would have wanted Kirsten Storms (Maxie from GH)

This is a younger photo of her, but this is how I pictured her for the role.
For Lily I wanted the girl who used to play Lily on AMC. I couldn't find a picture. 
For Cowboy, I wanted this guy from Friday Night Lights, but I can't remember his name from the show.
For Silver's parents, I picture them as Clark Kent's parents from Smallville.
 That's it.  That's my dream cast for Vampires Rule.

NEWS:  I am trying to come up with a better way to let fans of Vampires Rule know when future books are coming out.  Another writer suggested a mailing list.  If you would be interested in receiving a newsletter every 4 to 6 weeks regarding my books (links, sneak peaks, etc) leave a comment for me somewhere with your email addy.

Gwenn Wright's The Von Strassenberg Saga. Dani just released (and designed!) the official cover for BlueStocking Girl! Here's a link to Gwenn's awesome video:

I always pick my casts out before writing the book. Most of the time they're actors, but sometimes faces from the past come to mind and I don't know who they are.
