Character Interview: Ray Towley

I wanted to introduce you to an antagonist. The best villains think they’re heroes, right? Ray Towley is no different.

Interview:

You have the gift of the gab–

I can talk passionately of that I am passionate about, nothing more.

Right, well, do you think your talent is why people listen to you?

People listen when they like what they hear. Speak the truth, and they will listen.

Truth?

I will not sit and be made to look a fool for your little blog!

I’m just shocked at your use of the word truth.

I know what is good for the country, sometimes, people just need a little help to see it too.

So, you lie to make people see the truth?

Thats it, I’m done. You are totally unprofessional and clearly on a witch hunt. You should be ashamed.

*leaves the room with a slam of the door.

Quote:


So, that was Ray. I’m sure he spoke for himself in more ways than one.

Teaser Tuesday

I think I have about 5k left to write of Zombies and Budgie Smugglers. I know some writers can knock that out in one go, but not me. Adulting and parenting means that’ll take me about 3 – 4 weeks. If I can stick to my daily, short sessions, I hope to be done by mid June.

I have decided to add some characters from this WIP to the end of my character interview posts. A bit of insight into their personalities will be fun.

Character Interview: Reed Mercer

I finally get to introduce you to Reed, my second POV in Thrown to The Blue. He is my cutthroat thief, a prince of the streets.

If you want to learn more, download your copy of Thrown to The Blue.

Interview:

How would you describe yourself?

A man who favours loyalty and family above all else.

Are you sure your loyalty lies in the right place?

Ye like to tread a fine line, eh? My loyalty lies where I say it lies.

Do you believe in fate?

Fate, prophecy. I believe my life is tightly orchestrated. All lives are. Ye can nay deny that it was designed that I meet Ezra.

Did you ever doubt your role in her story?

Oh, it is her story, eh? I nay doubted Ezra, so that was enough.

What would you say is your worst trait?

That’s a foolish question. I think traits are a balance of personality. Good and evil lives in us all. Even ye.

Teaser Tuesday

I hold my hands up and admit writing has not happened this week. This week was the busiest of the year so far for us. We had the local Flora day festival my daughter participated in on Wednesday, my son’s Christening on sunday, and his 1st birthday yesterday. I am only now recovering… kind of.

So, this post is based on last week’s writing sessions.

I really hope to get back to my daily writing after today. I kept saying I’ll post my word counts to my Instagram stories, but that will have to start next week now.

Character Interview: Ezrahli

Are you ready to meet Ezrahli, my anti heroine of epic proportions? Thrown to The Blue was my ‘flowing out of my fingertips’ book. I have only a few notes and just rolled with the inspiration. Ezrahli oozed out.

This post corresponds with a free promo on Thrown to The Blue on Amazon. Get your copy today.

Interview:

Is anti heroine a good summise of you?

Well, I am no heroine. Make of that what you please.

Does it bother you that you are feared rather than respected?

I would suggest that opinions of me are subjective. It depends who you ask.

How would you describe yourself in 3 words?

Strong, realistic, and… fragmented.

Fragmented? In a good way?

Is there a good way for such a thing? Shattered through experiences beyond my control. Rebuilt by sheer determination. Now, determination is mine and mine alone.

What would you say is your worst trait?

My temper has seen men killed.

Your best trait?

I know how to get what I want.

Teaser Tuesday

Once again, the bank holiday has me all out of whack. I was thinking my teaser Tuesday post was due tomorrow. Alas, my scheduling is all to cock!

At least I noticed with time to spare.

I’m hoping these teasers are not spoilerific! It’s getting to that stage now in my writing of Zombies and Budgie Smugglers.

April Update

We’re already 2 days into May and I have only just remembered to post this update… Says it all.

May is busy for me. Like, super busy. My little boy turns one, but not before he is Christened. My daughter is dancing the Flora once again. If you have not heard of the Flora dance in Cornwall, google it! So, there is lots of organising for me to sort.

Anyway, I shall let you know how the month of April went…

Writing

As you may already know, I am a CampNaNo winner. Whoop! I wrote a small amount everyday to hit 6k words. I shall continue on with my small targets as this works well for me. I might start posting daily word counts to my Instagram stories.

Blogging

I’m well into my Character Interview posts. Yesterday’s post was an interview with a favourite of mine, Adam Lovick. I hope you are enjoying the posts and getting to know my characters some more.

I haven’t even started looking at the next series, yet. I usually like to schedule ahead of time, but I’m barely getting current blog posts live on time. That’s just life I guess.

Reading

I read nothing! Zilch! I reckon that is a first for me. With NaNo and adulting, reading came last. I’m a bed time reader, but during April I was falling into bed like a zombie.

My current read is Some Kind of Wonderful by Giovanna Fletcher. I might save it for the summer and crack on with some non fiction in May.

Coming Up

There will be a blog post next week explaining a little idea I’m deciding on to do with how I edit. Stay tuned.
