This is Day 1 of my Character Reveal series for my next book—title TBA soon. I’ll post a new character and a one-question T/F Quiz each Wednesday until I run out of characters. Those who comment most AND answer the most questions correctly will receive a signed book (bookplate sent separately-50 copies up for grabs) and a chance at 1 of 2 $10.00 Gift Certificates.
At the end of each month, I’ll announce the winners. The books and the CG’s will be sent out upon publication. Sorry, but I can only send books to U.S. However, I have plans for my international readers later. Promise.

Meet Etta Princeton
Pink. That’s the color Etta Princeton—Shoshone Princess—adores. Her nails. Her house. If she had a car, it would be pink, too. She doesn’t need rose-colored glasses to look at the world, that’s how she sees it already. Generous. Kind. Only nineteen, she’s a daughter who listens to her heart and her mom. She’s there for friends no matter what, so everyone should have an Etta in his or her life.
I often thought while writing this book, “how lucky Libby is to have Etta.” And if this story continued beyond these seventy thousand words, Etta and Libby would become the best of friends. I can guarantee that.
When I write a story, I often fall in love with the minor characters as much as I do the main ones. They add the texture and so many opportunities to reveal the MC’s. In fact, I don’t think of them as minor at all. They are the warp to the weft of the story, and without them, I’d have no story at all.
In this new book, Etta is introduced at the beginning, and she plays an important part, helping my MC grow from terribly damaged to whole again.
I think Etta will be one character readers will want more of.
Quiz: What famous book features these minor, but memorable characters? Aragorn, Pippin and Merry.
A. Star Wars
B. Great Expectations
C. Lord of the Rings
