The lovely Kathleen S. Allen tagged me in this blog hop. You can see hers on her own blog, and it honors me so so so much that she used the free character sketch I made for her during a contest ❤
And now, for my turn!
1) What is the name of your character? Is he/she fictional or a historic person?
Zéphyrine – Zéph, for short – is fictional.
2) When is the story set?
It’s a baroque setting in an unnamed fantasy world (seriously, I just call it The World), during Zéph’s father’s quest to end the influence of the Gods on earth.
3) What should we know about him/her?
Zéph is one of the four children of the Ravager (the main antagonist), and is a Mind Witch, which means she can hop around inside people’s heads and manipulate them as she sees fit.
4) What is the main conflict? What messes up his/her life?
Her life has always been messed up, so, in a way, conflict happens when it starts becoming less so. When she gets to Almudena (where the story happens), she’s intent on bringing the city to its knees and be done with it. She starts falling for Jasen (the Prince, whom she’s been told to brainwash), but it’s only when she meets Iriae, the one person who could go against the Ravager should she wish to, that Zéph starts having options in regards of where her life goes.
5) What is the personal goal of the character?
First, its to survive through obedience. Zéph’s scared shitless of her father (the one time she was a disappointment to him, he burned her half to death), and she wants to remain on his good side. But at around page 110, it changes into protecting Iriae and Jasen from the destruction the Ravager wants to bring upon Jasen’s country and the world.
6) Is there a working title for this novel, and can we read more about it?
Mind Witch, and you can read if you ask me, I guess. The query is in a separate header in my blog, too 🙂
7) When can we expect the book to be published?
When I get an agent, and said super agent sells this to a publisher. Meanwhile, have one teasers of an unfinished illustration for one of the book’s scenes.
