Oh, Those Flawed Characters





Let’s talk about those fictional beings that lure us into a good story.  I love a flawed character.   One that even might bend a few laws, break a few rules, or spout off something that later he’d give his right arm to take back.  





I think these imperfections make our characters feel real, human.  And yet, I have a line that a character must not cross for me to fall in love with them. For a story t

Hmm...I guess I need to write a scene from Holiday's and Burnett's point of view, huh? I'll give that some thought. Maybe I can write it and it can go on my website.


Thanks!! I can't wait until Oct. 11th.

message 22: by Jessica

Jessica So I just read the little clips from Derek's and Lucas' point of view when they see Kylie for the first time. I loved it. It was nice to see why Derek really wanted to get to know Kylie. It also got me thinking about what might have been going on in Holiday's and Burnett minds while Burnett was interrogating Kylie. cuz Kylie notices the tension between the two and I think it would be fun to know what was really going through Holiday's head during his interrogation of Kylie, and what was going through Burnett's about the way Holiday is reacting to him.

C.C. Hunter Hi Michaela!

I'm thrilled you are enjoying BAM. I'm having a blast writing book three, Taken at Dusk. And make sure you read Della's story, Turned at Dark, that is a free download at all the on-line eb-book sites. Plus, I have two scenes posted in Special Content on my website. One is from Derek's point of view and one is from Lucas's.
