Throwback Thursday, Casting Couch Edition

Today’s tour URLS:

First, I’m with Carmen over at Rabid Reads, talking about what goes into make a male character believable when he’s been written by a woman. (My argument is that we don’t want them TOO realistic in our fiction!) You can enter for the tour prizes at this stop.

I’m also doing a Q&A over at The Write Way Cafe, talking about Katrina and dream jobs, and there’s a giveaway of a $10 Amazon gift card just for commenting at that stop since it’s not part of the official blog tour–so hop on over and win!

I hit a bonanza last night as I searched for some workshop notes–and found HUNDREDS of photos I thought I had lost when I last switched computers. They’re completely unorganized, so you literally never know what I’ll come up with for Throwback Thursday.

This is a shot I pulled from somewhere when I started writing River Road, as the winning “cast” member for someone who’s become a major character in the series. I usually have a cast photo I keep in a folder for reference so I’m consistent from book to book.


Give him shorter hair and can you guess who it is? Give him tattoos. A LOT of tattoos, babe.

Wait for it….

Wait for it….

Yep, it’s RENE!

Is that kind of how you pictured him, if you’ve read the books?

  1. I agree. I would have guessed Jean Lafitte too. I would love to see his inspiration! I didn’t have a good picture of Rene in my head so this definitely helps.
