The official release date of Love is Monumental was May 1, but with all the tornadoes/floods/etc., I’m just now posting about it!
I’m so excited for this book to get into the hands of readers–I love the characters, flaws and all! So far, the book is getting a good response from reviewers too!
I’m hopeful that readers will enjoy a little glimpse at Washington DC and all the monuments along the National Mall. It was fun to pick out interesting bits of information about some of them to include.
I’m scheduled to do a few blog interviews/giveaways over the next few weeks, and one of the questions I often get is about the characters–who would play them if the book were ever (dare to dream) made into a movie.
So here’s a sneak peek at my choices for the main characters:
Dr. Thatcher Torrey, a college history professor, is in his late thirties. He is a classic workaholic–never giving any thought to his personal life–or lack thereof. Thatcher is content to focus on his classes and spend his weekends tucked away at his fishing cabin. He’d rather be outdoors than anywhere else. Thatcher despises technology–he doesn’t own a cell phone and thinks social networking is the downfall of society. His past is a bit of a mystery, but let’s just say he’s been hurt one too many times and is determined not to let himself become attached to anyone ever again. I’d cast Noah Wyle for the role of Thatcher. I think he can pull off the right mixture of studious and masculine.
So there you have it! My cast of characters for Love is Monumental. If you’ve read the book, I’d love to hear your thoughts on who you would cast! And if you haven’t read the book, you can purchase a copy here! (shameless plug, I know, but a writer has to eat…and pay rent…ha!)
