Authors Acting

Authors – I ask you, if your book was made into a movie or TV show, would you want to do a cameo?

Readers – Do you like to see authors do cameos?

I would answer yes to both of these. I love seeing authors do cameos. There’s just something so cool about an author getting to live in the world they created.

So, do you know any films or TV shows that have author cameos in them?

Here are a few fun sites to check out if you want to see some cameos.
The first two deal with movies and the last one deals with TV shows.

Highland Hearts

Scotland 1748
The Battle of Culloden is over, but one Highlander’s fight has just begun…
Logan McAllister survived years of indentured servitude in the Americas to reach this moment. Now he’s returned to Scotland, ready to redeem the secret promise from Sheena Montgomery’s father – that his years as an indentured servant would earn him Sheena’s hand in marriage. But when he arrives home, he learns that Sheena’s father has died, his contract has been lost… and Sheena is engaged to another man.

  1. Fun post, Eva Maria. I always enjoy see Stan Lee pop up in all the Marvel movies. I've read a lot of Clive Cussler's novels and he often pops up as himself in them.

    What I think I'd enjoy the most about being involved in a movie production (besides the excitement of having your own novel being made into a movie) is watching the process. I was fortunate to sit next to an experienced director on a plane flight recently and was surprised how important an editor is in the creation process, not just in the final cut but also in the ideation of a scene. Not unlike the writing of a book.

    1. What a fascinating plane ride that must have been! Lucky you for having had the opportunity to learn so much. Hopefully one day you will get to experience it first hand!

  2. I hadn't thought of this before. I guess when watching tv shows or movies I am not thinking of them as books or who wrote them etc. I could see if your book was made into a movie it would be cool have a cameo. Like the remake of the Brady bunch into a movie and Alice had a cameo.

    1. That's another great cameo example of a different kind! Thanks for sharing that, Jenny! I guess I'm always wondering who wrote this or directed it. And if I like it, it's a great way to find other stuff by the same people that I'll probably like.
