While writing my blog for Wickedly Romantic on Monday, I went on a Hero-Hunt.
What is a Hero-Hunt you ask? One of the best parts of being a romance author. But it can also be one of the toughest.
I have Logan, the hero of Catch of a Lifetime, in my head. I know what he looks like, how he sounds, how he smiles. I know his backstory, I know all his emotions with the opening of the book. I know this guy.
But I like to have the visual. The first two heroes were easy: Reel is Matthew McConnaughey from Failure To Launch, and Rod is a combo of Matt and Hugh Jackman (since Rod and Reel are twins). But Logan doesn't look like a celebrity, so how to find him?
A lot of internet research is hit or miss. I scored a hit with this one. Googling didn't quite work when you plug in characteristics, or "sexy guy," or "hot guys." (You get some pretty interesting pictures though when you do...) So I thought, let me check models. Again with the interesting pictures.
It took me a while, but I found this site: Cape London Model. Lots of pictures to visualize your hero/heroine. The hazard being, of course, that one can get quite waylaid in the search :)
So, who did I find for Logan? This picture of model Bill Edwards works for me. You?
