Who's YOUR Jude

I've been getting a lot of fans messaging me with pictures of who their "ideal" Jude is. So many have been so close to what I imagine Jude to look like, it's like my fans and myself have successfully mind-melded!

However, I'm still curious to see what else we can come up with, so all you Jude fans, now is the time to post a link to the picture of the bad boy with the big heart who personifies your Jude. I've got the first box of CRASH paperback's arriving next week, so the person who comes up with the best Jude wins a signed paperback copy.  We'll keep this contest open until Wednesday night, 9pm PST. Feel free to post here or on my FB page.

Jude Ryder, where are you? I have total faith someone will find you.

And one more thing before the Jude search begins. When I wrote and published my first YA contemporary romance, I didn't have a clue how it would go over. Would my faithful paranormal fans like it? Would it flop hardcore? Would anyone want to read it and actually like it? These were all concerns of mine that have been put to rest. Thanks to all of you.

In it's first month, CRASH has sold nearly 18,000 copies, far surpassing my original goals for its first month. So thank you. Sending you all a lot of love and wishing if you hadn't already found one, I could hand deliver a gray beanie'd cutie to each of your front doors.

Okay, I'm shutting up now.

Ready . . .

Set . . .

GO!!!

  4. Channing Tatum. Tried to post a pic but not having much luck. That's the closest I pictured when I read the book. He looks like such a bad boy.

  16. I know you already picked the winner but I just needed to add Kellan Lutz to the list. I think he sport a beanie quite nicely, (and not to mention the muscles too!).

  17. I know you already picked the winner but all the while I was reading Crash I couldn't get Toby Hemingway out of my mind as Jude

    http://images.fanpop.com/images/image_uploads/Hottie-toby-hemingway-386355_800_529.jpg

    Specially with the way he was portrayed in the movie The Covenant-- bad boy, built, cutie, and can totally rock a beanie (;

    Congratulations on all your success with the books! I breezed through Crash without being able to put it down. I read through lunch and through my classes (so don't ask me what I learned in my AP Psychology class, haha)
