Guest Post: The Stranger by Anna Del Mar

If your book was made into a film, who would you cast in the leading roles?
by Anna Del Mar

Would you hate me forever if I told you I’d prefer to skip the casting calls? I have a pair of good reasons. From my author’s point of view, I think it’d be hard, almost impossible to match the faces in my head with the faces of actors and actresses out there. Oh, there’s plenty of beautiful, talented, sexy actors and actresses who I’m sure would do a good job. But it’d be like Sophie’s choice for me. Painful. See, to an author, her characters are alive. So Seth and Summer, the protagonists of The Stranger are very real to me. So much so that seeing them played by other faces would be weird. Really weird.

My other reason to hold back on a casting call, my most important one, is the reader. I want to value and respect the choices they make in their mind. I want to give them the freedom to imagine whoever they wish, to be the rulers of the story. That’s the difference between reading and watching a movie. You’re in charge. I love that and I want to preserve it for my readers.

Ex-military pilot Seth Erickson is fighting his own demons, but when he finds Summer Silva, a beautiful, warmth-loving, Miami woman stranded in the frozen wilderness, he’ll do everything in his power to keep her safe from murder, treason, and the ruthless Alaskan winter.


When a mysterious stranger is your only hope...

The scars of the past have left their mark, both physical and emotional, on former military pilot Seth Erickson. Off-grid in the far reaches of the bitter Alaskan wilderness, he wants only to be left alone with his ghosts. But he can’t ignore a woman in need—beautiful, stranded and nearly frozen with fear.

Summer Silva never imagined that the search for her missing sister would leave her abandoned on a wintry back road, barely escaping with her life from a cold-blooded killer for hire. Now, hiding out in the isolated cabin of the secretive wounded warrior who saved her, Summer knows she must do what she fears most. Putting her trust in a stranger is all she has left.

All defenses are down

After a fiery first night together, Seth and Summer are bound by a need as powerful as a Bering Sea superstorm—and vulnerable to enemies just as fierce. For Seth, reawakened by desire, there is no sacrifice too great, no memory too dark, to keep Summer safe. But murder and treason lurk everywhere and Summer may not survive Alaska’s ruthless winter.

A Wounded Warrior Novel. This book is approximately 110,000 words
