Casting THE WITCH’S EYE

Posted on Mar 5, 2013 | 2 comments

It’s movie time, folks!

  1. I couldn’t help but read despite your spoiler warning. I am just getting ready to start Crown of Ash…hehe, I couldn’t resist. Love your list of characters and am now even more intrigued to read and finish Crown of Ash! Perfect decision for Maur btw. Also really love your choice for Eric and Danica :) oh to see this as a movie, would be um, wow!

    • Thanks Danielle! I think it would make an even better TV series, honestly. Of course we’d have cut a few of the actors…budgetary considerations and all. ;D
