Shannon Rose

Okay, am busy outlining new story. Sometimes I don't need visuals. The visuals in my head are so clear that there's no point trying to find a face or build to trigger the ideas. Other times, a story will come BECAUSE of a picture. The character of Celia and her world dropped on me pretty much whole because of a photo I saw (and bought) at a con. In fact, the art was so spectacular that our publisher is having the same artist do the cover of the book. SO cool.

But I digress. I have my new story. It is a mystery. It is plotting itself out nicely. But I found I really needed images of the characters to look at.

The hero was easy. He is a somewhat harsher looking version of a VFA (Very Famous Author) who shall remain nameless (although I may have a contest to see if you can figure it out if the book ever gets published). The heroine was trickier. The closest I've been able to come to it is a young Audrey Hepburn. But the tough guy, that was a given. An older version of Jason Statham. I've now pulled the appropriate pictures from the web and have them in a file to use for inspiration.

I really hope I don't have spy transmitters in my room. Paranoia rising to a whole new level.
