This is it guys! The last 'Beautiful People' for awhile. This linkup means a lot to me, it really helped me build my platform and I met tons of amazing bloggers through it. Cait and Sky are both big inspirations to me. Also if you didn't know, Cait, has a book coming out! SHE GOT PUBLISHED AND I AM SO FREAKING PROUD OF HER!
Onto the questions.
1. Favourite genre to write in?
I don't even have to think about it, Fantasy! Everything is possible and dragons are encouraged.
2. What book (a real actual published book!) do you think your character would benefit from reading?
*Glaring* The Bible.
3. Favourite piece of dialogue you’ve written?
Like almost none of it, but I remember not hating this bit.
I sighed. “Your point, if you please.”
A wicked smile formed. “I should think you have caught on by now, old chap.”
At my perturbed expression, he rolled his eyes and pulled out another cig.
He stuck it between his teeth, and nodded at me.
I reluctantly lit it.
His eyes brightened, his lips twisting as he took a long drag. “I suggest a promotion. The bloody queen has had her day.”
4. What did your character want to be when they grew up, and what did they actually become?
Cynfael was a pleasant enough kid, who probably would be happy as a royal advisor or scholar. After he was subjected to the cruelty of powerful people, he started to want power. That became his goal. As the illegitimate heir, he will settle for nothing less than the throne.
5. Favourite character name(s)?
Cynfael- means Prince
Chayse- means Hunter
6. What makes your character feel loved, and who was the last person to make them feel that way?
Alcohol and honestly just someone listening to them.
7. Favourite character you’ve ever written?
William Blackwood, he is my beast. Like the 'Beauty & the Beast' beast.
8. If your character were permanently leaving town, what would they easily throw out? What would they refuse to part with? (Why?)
Cynfael is incredibly high maintenance. He would need at least five silk suits, along with shoes, toiletries, and a good chunk of cash. He would easily leave his bloodthirsty family.
9. Favourite tropes to write!
Platonic friendships, group of misfits, and sassy, sarcastic dudes.
10. Which story has your heart and won't let go?
|Still freaking out over this cover!|
Falling Snow, which is why I am now writing a sequel and have plans for a prequel and maybe another one after that. I'm really attached to it, I think it's because I put a lot of my own problems in it. So happy, that you guys will be able to read it.
11. Favourite relationship between characters you’ve written?
The bromance between Chayse and Cynfael, the unrequited love Cynfael has for Snow because it's heartbreaking, Miss Hudson and Sherlock's odd relationship, the 'friendship to love' relationship between Chayse and Snow.
12. Toni Morrison once said, “If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it.” What are the books that you want to see more of, and what “holes” do you think need filling in the literary world?
More fae centered stories and fairy tales that aren't smutty! Books about friends that actually stay friends. More clean reads!
13. Favourite pinterest board / aesthetic for a book?
14. Favourite time periods & settings to work with?
1900s and 1920's. I also love Victorian gothic, creepy small towns.
15.When people are done reading your book, what feeling do you want them to come away with?
I would love to capture the feeling of pure joy that I get when I read a Diana Wynne Jones novel.
I don't think I will ever be able to do that. Hope, I want to give them hope.
