Erin, welcome. It's great to welcome another Erin to my blog. :) Tell us about your Shadow Series:
Erin K: First of all, a big thank you to Erin Quinn for sharing her blog with me! I am giving away a copy of both my debut release, Shadow Bound, and its sequel, Shadow Fall, to one lucky commenter today. Also, consider popping by my website, http://www.erinkellison.com/, to sign up for my newsletter and to put your name in the hat for my Nook raffle.
Erin K: When I was first beginning Shadow Bound I had a good idea of who my hero, Adam Thorne, and heroine, Talia O’Brien, were as people. I could picture them. I could hear them speak in my head. I knew exactly what they would do next, and why. I can’t say the same of Adam’s good friend, Custo Santovari. I tried to delete him from the manuscript of Shadow Bound several times. He was the guy that did the dirty work for Adam, and I wanted Adam to do his own dirty work, as any hero should. Delete.
A couple days later, I’d be writing him back in again. I didn’t even like him, but
Something bad happens to Custo in Shadow Bound. Very bad, but critical to the book. One of my critique partners said, “Reconsider. You can’t do that to a sidekick.” I remember reading the message on my computer screen and shaking my head in bafflement. Custo had gone way past sidekick. Custo was a hero.
At least in my mind.
And I’d wanted to delete him altogether in the beginning. Now, frankly, he’s my favorite.
Who are some of your favorite characters?
Here’s the back cover blurb for Shadow Fall:
Custo Santovari accepted pain, blood, even death, to save his best friend. But a man with all his sins just isn't cut out to be an angel.
One moment he's fleeing Heaven; the next, he's waking up stark naked in Manhattan. In the middle of a war. Called there by a woman who's desperately afraid of the dark.
It gathers around Annabella as she performs, filled with fantastic images of another world, bringing both a golden hero and a nightmare lover.
He pursues her relentlessly, twisting her desires even as she gives herself to the man she loves. Because each of us has a wild side, and Annabella is about to unleash the beast.
Erin Q: I can't wait to read these! I've had them on my TBR since before they were published and since I'm not one of those readers who has to wait for a whole series to come out before starting, no more delay. :)
