The Souls for Stars Giveaway Week Four!

The Souls for Stars Giveway!
Week Four

What? You don’t know what this giveaway is about? Well, here is a little recap.

Seeing how YA books are taking the silver screen by storm these days, I thought it would be really cool to let my fans and blogging friends cast Soul Quest. Each week I will post an excerpt from Soul Quest on the blog. The entrants will read the excerpt and suggest actors and/or actresses who they feel would best fit the role of the characters within the blurb. The next week (along with the new blurb and casting call) I will set up a poll to vote on the nominated actors/actresses. By the end of the giveaway (the month of January) I will tally up all of the nominations and votes (each nomination/vote counts as one point) and the entrant with the most points will win! The winner will take home the whole reading pile!

Now it’s casting time! Here is the cast of characters you voted for!

First the tie breakers for Liv and Laith:

Liv – Anna Popplewell
Laith – Liam Hemsworth

Last week you voted for the following cast members:

Brayan – Zachary Levi
Meena – Molly C Quinn

Here is your cast for Shyam, Avna , Lefu and Etheline:

Shyam – Logan Lerman
Avna – Evan Rachel Wood
Lefu – Gary Oldman
Etheline – Amanda Seyfried

Great Casting! Bravo!

OK, here is the list of nominations for each character for week three. Please vote for only one actor/actress for each character (choose your favorite). If you nominated a character that was previously cast (for another character – example – Amanda Seyfried was cast for Etheline) I did not list them in the list below, but I did tally the nomination to your score!
