Q: Do I need to create an account?
A: You need to create an account (name and email only) to add a book you want to cast. An account is also required to add characters and actors to a book someone else has already cast. This is to keep spammers away and avoids duplicate book entries.
Q: Do I need an account to vote on an actor I like or dislike for one of the book’s character roles.
A: No. You are not required to create an account or log in to vote on an actor.
Q: What types of books can I cast?
A: This site is mainly designed to cast fiction books. Some non-fiction books (i.e., true crime, biographies, or history) could also work well.
Q: What if I can’t find the book I want to cast?
A: If your book search turns up no results, please try different variations of the book name or author. You can also contact us directly, and we will attempt to manually add the book for you.
Q: What if I can’t find the Hollywood actor I want to cast?
A: If your actor search turns up no results, please try different variations of the actor’s name. You can also contact us directly, and we will attempt to manually add the actor for you.
Q: Can I suggest which director I’d like to direct the movie version of my book?
A: Yes! Instead of a character’s name, simply type “Director,” and then pick a favorite director of yours (i.e., Spielberg, Tarantino, Cameron, etc.).
Q: How does voting work?
A: It’s simple. If you see a celebrity actor who you think would be perfect for the character role in the book, give it a thumbs up. If you don’t like one of the choices, give it a thumbs down. The actor with the most votes will be ranked first. Please limit your thumbs-up vote to one per actor.
Q: Are my name and email safe?
A: Yes. We do not sell or rent your information. It’s used only to make sure you are a real person.
