January 27th Tour Stop at Two Ends of the Pen

Today, with 'Daughter of the Drackan's' virtual tour at Two Ends of the Pen, I share a little bit more about one of the book's supporting characters (who is so very cool), and a lot of information/tips on self-publishing and launching an Indie Author career (from my experience).

Come and check it out! (I feel like a caller at a carnival.) Comment on all the things, ask me questions, don't be afraid to speak your mind. And enter the Rafflecopter contest to win a $25 Amazon or BN gift card.

One more excerpt for you. Click the second link above to read the whole interview.

Have you ever had a minor character evolve into a major one? Did that change the direction of the novel at all?

Aloran, the first human Keelin meets and her ‘guide’ within the human world, originally started as a very supporting character. He was the initial bridge between her and the humans, and was supposed to show her just a few tiny secrets in the beginning. It was not my plan to have him fall in love with her, nor to give him such a huge role as the leader of the underground assassin group, the King’s Knives. But it happened.

And when that happened, he invariably makes a second and possibly greater appearance in ‘Mother of the Drackan’. We get a little bit of a deeper look into his own life, where he came from, and when he meets Keelin again, he finds a connection to his past he never knew existed. It’s pretty important for the ending, too—Aloran has a huge role in the final epic scene.
