About two weeks ago, I was asked by the always fun Rachael Ritchey to participate in a “Meet my Character” Blog Tour. To eliminate any sense of suspense, I agreed. And if you haven’t met, talked to, or otherwise interacted with this fine lady, you’re missing out. By a lot. So get on that, all of you. You can find her on Twitter at @rachaelritchey and her blog here.
Go ahead. I’ll wait.
But anyway, Rachael approached me for this character-driven—literally—blog tour. I agreed but then started to think about my writing. Rachael describes my work as “thrilling/mysterious,” but I have to admit, there’s a reason for that. Most likely that’s only because I haven’t really talked about my writing projects other than to give status updates. There’s nothing on the topic, the plot, characters, or anything else. Only me saying that I’m working on it.
That’s not a whole lot to work on. And I’m sorry about that, but I often post obscure tidbits about my life with no real details to support them. I’ve always done it. Drives my family nuts to say the least. Maybe that’s a sign of some sort of complex or a lack of faith. Maybe it’s modesty. Maybe it’s something else entirely. I tend to think it’s my innate sense of privacy I have to overcome every damn day.
Trust me. It’s harder than it sounds.
What you have here is a rare glimpse into the world of my novel, well before it’s released. Only a handful of people know more than what I’ve already shared on Twitter—and I’m related to most of them. So, please enjoy this.
’Cause I can promise there’s more where that came from.
I’ll give you two.
Daniel Atwell- Husband. Employee. Private detective. Completely fictional.
Stephanie Hawthorne- Wife. Employer. Private detective. Genius. Has absolutely no sense of style. Also fictional.
Now, I’m not the only person who wants to get in on this blog tour. I want to introduce you to a couple of fun ladies. Both are farther along in the publishing world than I am, but they’ve always been a blast to talk to.
First meet Sarah E. Boucher. You can find her at saraheboucher.com and on twitter at @saraheboucher.
Also, I would like to introduce you to Ciara Ballintyne. You can find her at @ciaraballintyne on twitter or at her website ciaraballintyne.com.
I have talked to both Sarah and Ciara on twitter for a while now, not to mention enjoying their individual works. When this blog tour came my way, they were the first ones I thought of. Their willingness to join in thrilled me to no end. With them gracious enough to join us in our bit of fun, this'll be a good time for everyone. Personally, I’m looking forward to hearing what they have to say about their individual works.
Take it away, ladies. The ball’s in your court.
