It’s Friday! And today we have New Adult author Juliana Haygert and her fantasy, Destiny Gift. (Which, by the way, for a limited time is less than a dollar!)
Destiny Gift, the first in the Everlast trilogy, follows nineteen-year-old Nadine lives in a dark New York City and has the visions to bring sunlight back, if the forces behind the darkness don’t stop her first.
1.) Yay! I’m so excited to have you and I’m so excited to see your cast! Who's playing who in the movie?
Nadine = Alexis Knapp (darker hair version). Nadine is so perfect in my head, and I don’t mean perfect = flawless. I mean perfect, that the way I imagine her is so vivid … it was hard trying to find an actress to match her. I think Alexis Knapp was the closest I could get to.
Victor = Evandro Soldati (his lighter hair version). Well, I just always had Evandro, a Brazilian model, as Victor in my mind. He isn’t an actor, but he’s a goddamn great (aka yummy) model ;)
Micah = Sean O’Pry (with dark contacts). Okay, this one is near and dear to my heart. I love, love Micah. Well, Sean O’Pry is so handsome, in a rough kinda way, just like I imagine Micah. Micah is also mysterious … now look at the pic. Perfect, right?
Ceris = Taylor Schilling. This was also a hard one. Ceris is older than the others (just like Imha and Omi), but she’s equally beautiful. And her face, her features, are supposed to be lovely. I think Taylor Schilling has this sweet air about her that makes her a good choice for Ceris.
Imha = Scarlett Johansson (with pitch black hair). I love this pic of Scarlett. It screams CRAZY! Just like Imha is.
Omi = Karl Urban (with goatee and scruffy hair). Karl can pull off the hard, unscrupulous gaze of Omi as if he was born for that. Plus, he is very handsome, and although he Omi is kinda evil, all gods and goddesses are stunning, powerful.
Morgan = Viggo Mortensen (with longish, shaggy hair). Viggo can morph into any kind of character he wants, and I can easily see him as an easy-going Morgan, talking about the Everlast all the time ;)
Fates = Gwyneth Paltrow (with white hair). Another hard one. The fates are three identical women with ageless features. With a dull makeup, Gwyneth sure does get that look. And I can see her doing the whole I’m-so-powerful-and-I-don’t-need-to-show-it-off vibe of the Fates.
2. That’s amazing! I want to see this movie! Who’s writing the screenplay?
Me? HAHAHA Yeah, but I would like to be consulted, at least, you know.
Can I have a combo, like Joss Whedon does everything? Writing, directing and producing? lol
Other than Mr. Whedon, I confess I don't pay attention to this. Wait, maybe I do since I think Julie Plec is doing a great job with The Vampire Diaries, and Steven S. DeKnight did an AWESOME job with the Spartacus series. So, yeah, if Mr. Whedon isn't available, I'll be happy with either Julie Plec or Steven S. DeKnight.
Ooh! Excellent choice! I’d want to work with someone too.
3. Director? (Like I really need to ask.)
Joss Whedon please! No explanations needed …
If he’s too busy, Christopher Nolan will do ;)
(CHRISTOPHER NOLAN!) *Acts professional*
4. Eh-hmm. Wanna change your mind on the Joss Hurricane? Maybe for producer?
Another thing I don’t pay much attention to, but I keep my statement from above: Joss Whedon.
Or hm, Jared Leto? I love all of the Thirty Seconds to Mars videos and he’s the one behind them ;)
5. Who HAS TO be on the soundtrack?
Florence and the Machine would sing the main song, for sure. Another song by Leona Lewis (love her voice), and OneRepublic. Also, Breaking Benjamin and Daughtry lol Oh, jeez, this list could go on for a while.
One thing I know for sure about the music, though: the score has to be by Two Steps From Hell – love them!
WE’RE SOUNDTRACK TWINS! (Except Daughtry.)
6. What's the line on the poster?
The same one that is on the bookmark: “Her gift will bring light to a world of darkness.”
*gets the willies/shivers*
7. This is all you. Did I miss something?
Wow, this was too much fun! Thank you for having me! :)
You’re made of awesome! Thanks for stopping by, Juliana!
And the rest of you can get your paws on Destiny Gift here!

Do I have a treat for you!
I'm revealing the cover to The 400lb Gorilla by DC Farmer. Just wait!
Look at the description:
Matt Danmor thinks he's lucky. Not many people survive a near death accident with nothing more than a bout of amnesia, a touch of clumsiness and the conviction that the technician who did the MRI had grey skin and hooves.
Still, it takes time to recover from trauma like that, especially when the girl who was in the accident with you disappears into thin air. Especially when the shrinks keep telling you she's just a figment of your imagination.
So when the girl turns up months later looking ravishing, and wanting to carry on where they left off, Matt's troubled life starts looking up. But he hasn't bargained for the baggage that comes with Silvy, like the fact she isn't really an English language student, or even a girl.
Underneath her traffic stopping exterior is something else altogether, something involving raving fanatics bent on human sacrifice, dimensionally challenged baked bean tins, a vulture with a penchant for profanity, and a security agent for the Dept of Fimmigration (that's Fae immigration for those of you not in the know) called Kylah with the most amazing gold-flecked eyes...
The 400lb Gorilla is caustic, (vampire-free) introduction to the Hipposync Archives: Contemporary fantasy at its sparkling best.
Doesn't that sound like the coolest thing you've ever heard? WANT.
And now here's the cover:

135,789. That’s how many subscribers sixteen-year-old West Ryder has on his web vlog series. But he only has eyes for one of them. Turns out, she's his best friend.
Exciting, no? Let's see the movie!
7. Bahaha. TRUE. *severe look* What did I miss?

Sorry for the lateness!
Today, I have the honor of revealing the cover of the late LK Madigan's last novel PROJECT: BOY NEXT DOOR.
Being the son of a mega-famous mogul isn't all it's cracked up to be, which is why super-smart but socially awkward teen Melvin Pepper wants to try something new: anonymity. To attend a regular high school, get a normal job, meet real people. A break from the pressure and facade that come with crazy wealth and a world-renowned last name.
But Mel quickly realizes that being Mike, his alter ego, isn't as easy as he'd assumed. He gradually makes friends at work and school and becomes involved in the radio club, plus navigates the rocky waters of first crushes and first kisses. However, he discovers someone out there is on to his secret and is threatening to expose it.
And that's not all. One of Mel's new work friends is hiding a dark secret of her own, and Mel feels helpless to make things better for her. He struggles with juggling two very different identities, balancing jealous old friends and nosy new ones. Yup, Mel's in way over his head...and the only chance he has to make everything right is to be true to himself.
You can add it here
Here's the gorgeous cover!
