We have wee little apple blossoms on our apple tree! And a wee small rhubarb popping up! Hooray!

Woot! The fifth Walker Papers books has a title! It will be DEMON HUNTS, and I am having a very good time writing it right now. Yay!

Dude. You guys came up with some fantastic casting choices for the Negotiator trilogy. I wish I had about fifteen copies of the anthology to send out, because you did *not* make this an easy choice! I’m going to have to do something cool for the people who participated but didn’t win, because you did such a good job. Maybe I’ll write an Old Races short story just for you guys and not try to publish it anywhere for six months or something.

Okay. *Jeez*. Okay. Overall the best cast, I think, came from Liz McClafferty, who suggested the following:

Margrit Knight - Jasika Nicole
Alban Korund - Josh Holloway
Tony Pulcella- Kirk Acevedo
Eliseo Daisani - Robert Downey Jr.
Vanessa Gray - Winona Ryder
Janx - Johnny Depp
Chelsea Huo - Michelle Yeoh
Grace O’Malley - Katie Sackoff
Malik - Skeet Ulrich
Tariq - Gary Dourdan
Kaimana - Pomaika’i Brown
Cara - Dakota Fanning
Biali - Micky Rourke
Hajnal - Faune Chambers
Ausra - Rashida Jones
Russel Lomax - Gary Sinise
Cameron - Jennifer Garner
Cole - Matt Damon
Sarah - Charlize Theron
Ursula - Kristen Stewart
Kate - Emma Watson

Whew. That was *hard*! I gotta make the next contest easier on *me*!

Did I understand you to say you were stopping with this last Negotiator book? If so what made you decide to not continue it?

I have to admit, Katie Sackoff is an excellent choice for Grace, although typecasting. :)

Josh Holloway, Johnny Depp and Skeet Ulrich, all in the same movie? I can't breathe.

How sweetly do I have to beg to get my hands on a crew pass? :D

wait wait wait.. you can't have johnny depp and Skeet ulrich in a movie together. it would be too odd. (most especially as Janx and Malik.) That's like having adonis and also adonis's nearly identical little brother with the twitch and poor social skills trying to vie for power.

(I say this because in my opinion Skeet ulrich is uncannily like Johnny Depp in appearance, but younger and less awesome.)

That would be an expensive cast!!

This was a great cast choice! And Kaimana - Pomaika’i Brown? Neat!
