YA INDIE CARNIVAL: SOLSTICE Dream Cast & Trading Cards Giveaway!

It's time again for the YA Indie Carnival, an awesome group of weekly bloggers blogging about the same topic! This week's topic?


So the post will be pretty easy. I've done it before. But, that said, coming up with who would be my main characters in the first place was pretty darned hard. Especially for the guys. I never would have thought it would be so hard to cast my male leads. Anyway, I also have to put out one disclaimer: I don't know the names of any of these people. They are all stock images (love istockphoto.com)

I had to come up with my dream cast for a trading card set I developed for SOLSTICE. Each card has a unique QR code that links to a hidden page on my website.

If you would like your own full set of trading cards, all you have to do is tell me here!

You can watch the trailer for SOLSTICE here!


There's some awesome news to share from our other carnies!

Gwenn Wright's The Von Strassenberg Saga. Dani just released (and designed!) the official cover for BlueStocking Girl!

Laura A. H. Elliott's 13 on Halloween new release! Read an excerpt here!

Great job of using istockphoto to cast your movie:) I love seeing all the fresh faces. How fun is this? Great job PJ. Love your trading cards too!

Dani @ Refracted Light said...

These trading cards are AWESOME! I too like the unknown faces. Makes it feel more real I think.

Matthew MacNish said...

I have some of those cards, and I can tell you, they're very cool!

PJ Hoover said...

Thanks, Patti! They were very fun to make!

Thanks, Laura. They have some nice looking people on those stock photos. So many choices :)

Thanks, Dani! And the funny thing is now I can actually put faces to my characters for real.

Thanks, Matthew! I'm so glad you like them :)

T. R. Graves said...

I love the names as much as the choices.

It's not who I pictured, but I suppose they will do. That's the problem when I've read the book. I have my own ideas, but most of these fit right in.

I know what you mean, Heather! It was hard to shift my own mind for how they looked :)
