This is Day 6 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. NOTE THIS CHANGE: I started announcing winners at the end of each week, but that became tedious, so I’ll announce future winners toward the end of the Reveal. The books and the GC’s will be sent out upon publication. Sorry, but I can only send signed books to U.S. However, I can send an eBook to international winners.
To enter, leave a comment and type the answer to the quiz at the end of your comment (A, B, or C) I’ve left links to previous posts if you’re joining me late, so you can work your way back if you want to see the other posts and comment. Here’s last week’s POST.
Meet Libby’s Dad
From her first days on the slopes, Libby’s dad has been there teaching, coaxing, encouraging. When she’s about to make the Olympic team, he’s still in her corner, making sure she has the support she needs to get her chance at the Gold. Then her life turns upside down, and even her dad can’t help her.
Mr. Brown is the kind of dad every kid deserves. He’s caring. He’s fair. He’s dependable. He’s always there. As I wrote him into the story, I took a lot of my own dad and put him into the character. My dad would laugh if he read this because he’d know Mr. Brown is the idealized version of him. This character is probably the “sweetest” one I’ve ever written. The other dads in my stories are definitely not sweet. Maybe this was my way of making up for not treating my other ones so kindly.
Quiz: There are some famous fathers in books. I’ve matched three to books, but only one match is correct. Which one?
A. Jack Torrance, About A Boy
B. Atticus Finch, Pride and Prejudice
C. Arthur Weasley, Harry Potter Series
