So, I saw Briana Vedsted make a post where she interviewed a character from her book. I thought was a genius idea and set out to do the same. Unfortunately, I can never think of any questions to ask my characters beyond ‘why did you do that?’ or ‘are you trying to drive me insane?’ I’ve talked with them for so long that I don’t know what questions people would want to ask to make things interesting.
The answer is to leave things open for people to ask the characters a question and I’ll have them answer in the comments, making a big post the next day with all the questions, answers, and links to the askers’ blogs. This might end up being a Tuesday to Wednesday event too if it goes well.
Let’s start this up at the top with Luke Callindor, the young hero of Beginning of a Hero. The only child of Ilan and Vixen Callindor, he comes from the town of Haven. He comes from a line of heroes that can be traced back to before the Great Cataclysm. Thanks to his grandfather Talos ‘Doubleblade’ Callindor, Luke has been trained as a forest tracker. Forest trackers are trained in dual weapon combat, tracking, and wilderness survival. (Taking a punch like a champ isn’t something to be proud of, Luke.) Luke has recently set out to prove that he’s worthy of the fame that has been heaped on him since birth and that’s what leads to his first adventure. Being eighteen and on his own for the first time, he isn’t quiet sure what he’s doing and has a habit of leaping before looking. (Don’t even try to deny that, kid.)
That’s who we have in the hot seat, so ask away and see what happens.
