I found this fun site called Story Casting.com and it's where you can cast your fave books as movies.

Of course it's not like you're really casting them for Hollywood or anything, it's just for fun, but I found it when my books appeared on there.

Ha ha!

So go give your hand at casting some books.

I'm addicted...and yes, humbly proud that the last time I checked, my book Michael was in the top five of being cast and was the featured work.

If someone has half a brain, I won't mind my books being made into movies one day.

Trouble is, finding anyone in Hollywood who can think outside the box.

That is why I support Indie filmmaking.

I know that Hollywood messes up a great deal of books, but at the same time helps to promote them, to get to known around the globe. For example, in my case it was Neil Gaiman's Stardust.

That they do, but it seems that many people feel they mess up storylines.

I have no clue, as none of my books have ever been made into movies.

My book A Man of Two Worlds almost made it, but the film company flaked out so it was a no go.

*Sigh*

There are so many great books, that just weren't good at transitioning into film. So many have been butchered my trends, editors, studio, etc; that they barely resemble the classic literature they once were.

Look at I Am Legend

However;

Green Mile
The Shawshank Redemption
Fight Club
Girl, Interupted
Unforgiven


All of these films were masterpieces in my mind, and were taken from amazing books, and somehow stayed true to the original tales written.

Now I have to figure out what book I want to cast, into the film version I would imagine of course.
