In my upcoming young adult novel, Merch Girls, the quiet drummer is named Ryan. He’s a secondary character, but very integral to the main story. When I browsed through photos, this one stood out to me as the guy I could see being Ryan.
Whatcha think? He seems shy, mysterious and angsty to me 🙂
The other Merch Girl in my upcoming novel Merch Girls is named Trina. She’s pretty much a free spirit, doesn’t have a care in the world, is super hot but doesn’t act like it, has more confidence than anyone should and loves to rock out with her bff Lacey. When I saw this photo, the outfit screamed “Trina” to me. I could definitely see her wearing this to one of the band’s shows.
Logan is the lead singer of the band in my Young Adult novel, Merch Girls. He is also the main love interest for my main character, Lacey. He’s almost 20-years-old, interned at a record label in New York City and is an all around hot as hell rockstar. And he’ll always be a Boston boy at heart with his love for the Red Sox.
When I saw this photo I immediately thought of Logan:
What do you think?
I can visualize my characters from the novels I write in my head, but it’s hard to find physical representation. After perusing the awesomeness that is Tumblr, I did come across a few that fall in line with what I feel they would look like or act like.
My main character in Merch Girls is named Lacey. She’s 17 (almost 18), sort of shy, has curly/wavy hair and loves to rock out. Here’s what I think she would look like waiting outside the tour bus for her boys. Could you relate to someone like her? Are you interested in hearing her story?
I’ll post more photo inspiration in the coming weeks!
