WIP The Movie Blog hop

February 28, 2014 by Suzi

Today is the movie blog hop where my MCs can be stars! I may be wrong, cause sometimes that happens, but I think this was the first blog hop I ever participated in, 2 years ago. And I pulled it together like last minute.

Not this time. I started early. So thank you to Kyra Lennon and Rachel Schieffelbein for hosting this blog hop.

So the point of this blog hop is to show the actors/actresses you’d cast in one of your WIPs. I’m going back in time to my very first YA story. I still love it today and will probably be going back to work on it. Maybe when I start querying my current WIP.

This novel is called Beyond the Wake. Here’s a short blurb—and I apologize because it’s not query ready and therefore, may suck.

Seventeen-year-old Jason is invited to spend the summer at the lake with his buddy Mack. He looks forward to the skiing, partying and girls. But when Jason unexpectedly falls for Mack’s younger sister, he has to decide if he can give up his partying ways to be the guy Alexis needs.

Fifteen-year-old Alexis looks forward to swimming, the sun and catching up on her stack of unread books. When Jason shows an interest in her, she’s flattered and pleased that her brother, Mack, hates the idea of them dating. When Alexis learns Jason leads a different life than her, and she must decide if she’s willing to surrender her values for the guy she’s fallen for.

And here are my choices for actors.

Abigail Breslin is Alexis. She just has a sweet innocent look to me and is perfect for the roll.

Julian Morris is Jason. This guy is probably a little old to be playing a teen, but he’s got the right look.

Logan Lerman is the brother, Mack.

So that’s it. Now go check out the other participants by going to Kyra’s site.


  1. I love the blurb. Sounds like moments of great tension here.

  2. Kyra Lennon says:

    This book sounds excellent!

    I may have swooned a little over your choice of Julian Morris. That guy is perfect!

    Thanks for joining in with the hop!

    Who is the Logan guy? He is so cute and this is the second time I’ve seen him. Nice choice. Abigail is talented.

  7. Logan Lerman! Love your cast.

    Great choices. Any ideas for your sound track/theme song?

  8. Jolene Perry says:


    I so totally suck at doing this, lol.
    BUT it’s fun to see who people chose!

  9. Can I date Mack?
    I’m probably too old but ‘Percy’ is so cute!

    Nice choices.
    Sorry, I’m late. :)
    Thanks for sharing.
