Fridays are usually reserved for reviews of existing books, plays, movies, TV shows, and music. But, today I’ve decided to focus on my novel, Hollow Souls, which is unfortunately not published yet. But, hey, it’s my blog, and I can boast if I want to...
As I’ve already mentioned on one of my other blogs, something very exciting is happening today on Come In Character, a creative site launched in January by two wacky writers (Mira and Ann) to focus on characters... and their authors. Of all the writing-related blogs that I follow, CIC is the one that most inspires me to write (or at least get to know my characters better). Every Friday, one lucky character is featured in the “Character of the Week” post – which offers him, her, or it the chance to share with the other characters and, perhaps, teach his, her, or its “creator” a thing or two.
Well, today, one of my characters – Olivia Harper – is in the spotlight – thanks to Christine H., whose character Ginger was featured last week. So, thanks, Christine! I enjoyed exploring Olivia’s past, which included her childhood in New Orleans and her strange experiences in the secret, underground village of Ruby Hollow. I just hope no one gets upset with her for revealing so many secrets. The Hollow does have Internet access, after all.
Regardless, I’m excited to see how the day unfolds for Olivia, who’ll be checking in frequently from her home on South Padre Island. And, of course, I wouldn’t be surprised if a few other key characters stopped by to say “hello” (or something worse), too. So, if you’re curious about Olivia and my other characters – or just intrigued by the concept of Come in Character – please pay us a visit as soon as you can.
