I have just received two early copies of THE PRETENDER’S CROWN. It is, in my ever-so-humble opinion, absolutely beautiful. In fact, it’s so pretty it makes me want to re-read it, which isn’t all that usual. :)

So! I have two copies. One must go on my Shelf Of Books I Wrote, but the other, I think, cries out to be sent into the world. So there will be a contest!

Ted has suggested a Casting Call Contest. I will be the director. You will be the Casting Agents. The book will go to the person who builds what is to my mind the best complete cast for THE QUEEN’S BASTARD. The integral characters, therefore, are Belinda Primrose, Robert Drake, Lorraine Walter, Sandalia de Costa, Javier de Castille, Eliza Beaulieu, Marius Poulin, and Sacha Asselin. Bonus points for also casting Dmitri Leontyev, Rodrigo de Costa, Irina Durova, and Akilina Pankejeff. And I’ll be really impressed if you also cast Viktor, Ilyana and the gondola boy. :)

The parts don’t have to be cast with current actors, I wouldn’t say, or people at their current ages. That makes it more fun, I think. :)

Here’s the catch: I only have the one copy to send out, and this post goes out at mizkit.com, cemurphy.net, mizkit.livejournal.com, Facebook, and if I can figure out how to make it work automatically, at Myspace. I expect answers will come in from most of those places, so you might not see the winning entry wherever you actually do your own answering. I will, of course, post the winning entry here.

Let’s see. I’ll choose a winner Thursday evening my time, so we’ll call the contest closed at noon EST on Thursday, April 2.

Have at!

I've been meaning to ask you if you recalled me winning a copy of the TPC for guessing the number of pages after you edited it last year.

If you don't it isn't a big deal, but you mentioned you forgot things.

I recall now that I've been reminded! And I have your address, and will send you a copy as soon as I've got the proper author's copies, ok? These are like the cutting-edge ones and I'm greedy and want to keep one for myself. :)

No worries. I can wait. I just wanted to ask since I am reading TQB right now and it was on my mind.

It's good that you asked because I'm very very forgetful. :)
