Demimonde Casting Call: Sebastian Stan for Rodrian Thurzo

In the past, I've shared my thoughts about who'd make the perfect cast for a movie based on the Demimonde series. Zooey Deschanel would nail our Sophie Galen, while Peter Steele would have been an ideal Mark Thurzo. (That dream is dead, sadly. God rest you, Pete.)

But Rodrian's pick was just a guy I'd seen in a Perry Ellis ad. Truth was, I hadn't found our Rodrian yet. Who was fit to wear the cufflinks?

Well, Team Rode, that's all about to change. I found my ideal casting for the role of Mark's smexy younger brother, Rodrian Thurzo.

Rode has been described as a college pin-up, as well as an Armani ad with a Calvin Klein ad waiting underneath. He's flirty, sultry, and full of the heat that makes his hazel demivamp eyes glow like molten copper. He's the body behind the Blood Rush and he is definitely forbidden fruit.

And the man to play him should be none other than Sebastian Stan.

Stan's even got the proper blood to do it... Romanian-born Stan is a Rodrian Thurzo waiting to happen.

My daughter and I had the chance to meet Stan at the Philadelphia Comic Con this past weekend and I can tell you, in the words of my daughter, he's absolutely precious. When Jess asked him if he'd hold her up bridal-style for the picture, he shrugged with a grin and said "Sure".

My daughter has not been the same since and probably won't walk on the earth for a few more days--not because she was in the arms of the Winter Soldier himself, but because this picture has rocketed her to Tumblr fame (she's got her priorities, you know.)

While Rodrian's been known to say "chicks are nicer to hold", I don't mind sharing that Stan's not so bad to hold, either. :) I bet he's a cuddler...just like Rode. I'd hire him in a heartbeat.

Being totally professional, of course. *waves to husband*

Enjoy the candy, girls, and keep your fingers crossed that the Demimonde film options get picked up before Stan retires from the stage!

Full moon approaches...and, with it, WOLF'S BANE

A full moon... on Friday the 13th? Such propitious alignment can only mean one thing... some terrifying cosmic event is readying to manifest itself.

Or, it could be that WOLF'S BANE--the third book in the Demimonde series--will celebrate its official release on Sunday.

To spread the word about the conclusion to this urban fantasy trilogy, we'll be embarking on a month-long tour until July 15.

Just as Sophie is compelled to count each day until the full moon in this latest Book of the shall we.

Question is: when July's full moon arrives,
which of us will Turn?
Join us Sunday as we kick off the release of WOLF'S BANE (Demimonde #3). Don't forget to watch Facebook and Twitter for flash giveaways, too. (I'm heavily influenced by the push and pull of the moon, so who knows what lunacy that might occur.)
So, sit back, breathe deeply, and once we're safely through Friday's full moon, we'll journey onto the next one together. Just remember...
The sky turns, the wheel turns, and eventually, we turn with it.
