A Pocket Full of Murder

Procrastination 'R' Us

Well, since I couldn't seem to get my head together for Touching Indigo, I decided to take the sage advice of my f-list and try doing something entirely different for a while. So I've spent the better part of the last two days looking for pictures of people who resemble my characters.

For Knife, I pulled a few pics from Getty Images and iStockPhoto that reminded me vaguely of Knife and Paul, but none of them really pleased me. So last night I started looking for photos of actors and actresses instead of models... and wouldn't you know, I found a Paul-alike almost at once. He's the right age, the right build, the right coloring -- even the right nationality. He's also stunning, but in Paul's case that's okay because I described him as good-looking in the book. (His name, for the record, is Alex Pettyfer, and he played Alex Rider in the movie of Stormbreaker they made a couple of years ago.)

So of course I made another icon.
