Okay, I can hear some of you now. “882? Is that all?” I know, that’s not a whole lot (Believe it or not, I don’t get THAT many visitors to this blog). But to put that in perspective, the second most popular post received 252 page views (from September 2013). Third place received 248 page views (from October 2013). In my top ten there aren’t ANY posts that come close to being that old, either. So yeah, it was popular.
And I’m sure it had a lot to do with the two pictures on that post. I mean, who doesn’t like seeing Alex O’Loughlin and/or Brandon Routh? Okay, what FEMALE doesn’t like seeing Alex O’Loughlin and/or Brandon Routh?
While I'm not posting their pictures again, I thought maybe I could create another popular post and show you some more people I’ve discovered who have resembled characters I’ve created. Will it work? Only time will tell...
John Pennington (from Bite Me, I’m Yours and the ill-fated “Sarah’s Turn”) had gone through many formations in my head until I saw Captain
My. God. That was John! Not just in the looks, but in the way he acted. So
yeah, now I’ve got a little fixation on Chris Evans (sorry, Alex—although you’re
still number one). America
Rob Gentry (my character from Ghostly Liaison) took on an eerie resemblance to a former boss of mine (which I do NOT have a photo, and yes, he was hot!). It was really awkward since I was still working for the guy at the time AND writing the book. It’s not something I recommend. Sure made it hard for me to focus on my work. Shoot, he probably wondered why I was always staring at him… J
The most recent discovery of one of my characters came from my last cruise. I was just standing there, waiting for the muster drill before the cruise set sail, when I looked at one of the “instructors” who was demonstrating the life vest. It was Victoria Braeden (my character from Blind Temptation).
Actually, her name is Natasha, she was one of the singer/dancers for the production numbers, and she’s from
I tried my best to get her picture (because I was too stupid to do it during
the muster drill—doh!). Out of all the ones I took, this one was the best. But
let me tell you, I was obsessed with her on that cruise. I felt like I was
cruising with England !
Okay… Now that you know what a total nut job I am, why don’t you stop on over at CD Hersh’s blog. I’m over there “talking” about how I came to write Ghostly Liaison. The link to the post is HERE. I’m not giving away any prizes, but could sure stand to see a familiar name (and I’m sure the Hersh’s wouldn’t mind having a visitor or two, either).
So… Do prizes get you to go visit a blog? They don’t for me. Most of the time I don’t want the prize, so then I don’t comment. So I just don’t do giveaways on guest posts. Maybe one day, when I’m rich and famous… Nah.
Have a great weekend!
