To celebrate the release of my first book, I’m posting a new “Behind the Scenes” exclusive about The Next Together daily until September 3rd. You can find them all here, including Chapter One from Matt’s Point of View, a Harry Potter crossover, A scene from start to finish, a playlist and the book as different genres.
If you preorder The Next Together before September 3rd you can get a free signed bookmark! Details here. The last person to email me with their preorder information before midnight GMT on September 2nd will receive an extra special gift with their bookmark!
Today, I’m sharing my character fancasts!
THIS IS MY ALL TIME FAVOURITE THING TO DISCUSS, SO HOLD ONTO YOUR SEATS GUYS. THERE’S GONNA BE A LOT OF CAPITAL LETTERS AHEAD.
aLRIGHT ALRIGHT SO MATTHEW GALLOWAY, MY MAIN MAN.
Preferably, all of these lovely gentlemen would play him together, at the same time. If (tragically) that weren’t possible for some reason, I would narrow it down to:
BEN WHISHAW. BEN FREAKIN WHISHAW.
We’ve got futuristic scientist Matthew:
And historical journalist babe Matthew:
THAT’S MY MATT.
Kate Finchley. My girl is a lot harder to cast, because she has to have the kind of face that is androgynous enough to pass as a boy when in disguise, but also super curly ginger locks.
I think the most likely choice is Rose Leslie, who was introduced to me via this beautiful The Next Together gifset.
Although Jessica Chastain is also a frontrunner.
MY BABIES, I LOVE YOU.
Also, here they are as mermaids, because why not?
So then we have the secondary characters, who are a lot harder to cast because I haven’t spent almost three years thinking about them inside out.
Tom Galloway. I’m thinking smirky, cocky? Stubble. Dylan O’Brien.
And finally Anise is Ellen Page.
If you want to know more about Kate and Matt, you can read the first chapter of The Next Together here, and buy the book in the following places:
In other news: I did an interview at That Artsy Reader girl‘s blog.
The Next Together was featured in yesterday’s Sunday Express! Honestly, I can’t believe this is real life sometimes.
