Character Blog Hop

I’ve been asked by the lovely Renee Meland to participate in a blog hop!

Renee is a great blogger and writer. She has currently has her book, The Extraction List, out for sale. I highly recommend checking it out, it was a brilliant read and something really different in the young adult books.

So, to the questions!

1) What is the name of your character? Is he/she fictional or a historic person?

The character’s name is Kai and he is a fictional character set in the world I am creating for my next book.

2) When and where is the story set?

The story is set in a fictional fantasy land where magic is not only a way of life, but is a vital source to those who live in the world. Without their constant connection to magic, well, no one would last very long.

3) What should we know about him/her?

Kai is one of three people who are needed to fulfil an old prophecy, and due to his importance he has had a very, very sheltered upbringing. So, when he’s thrown out into the world to complete his task, it’s overwhelming but exciting to him.

4) What is the main conflict? What messes up his/her life?

Evil is growing, threatening the world as prophesised by the Ancients long ago. Kai, along with his, ‘band of heroes’ as he affectionately calls them, are the only ones who have the power to defeat the evil. Yet, it’s not just the bad guys who are causing problems, but the sometimes explosive relationships between the others in the band of heroes.

5) What is the personal goal of the character?

To complete the task he’s been trained for since birth; fulfilling the wishes of the council and the Ancients has been his life (all fourteen long years of it!). But being put into the care of his fellow travelling companions, he comes to realise that maybe the prophecy shouldn’t be his whole life when there is so much more to experience.

6) Is there a working title for this novel, and can we read more about it?

There is no current working title, unfortunately. I should probably rectify that!

7) When can we expect the book to be published?

End of July, if everything goes smoothly (but how often does that happen? :D).

So there you go, a rare snippet into my current WIP! Hope you enjoyed it 🙂

And now I have to link to 5 other people for the blog hop… That’s where I have a confession to make.

I haven’t got anyone! (How embarrassing).

I have been so unbelievably swamped lately, I have barely had time to keep up with everything, so I am really sorry I haven’t got anyone to tag. I know that is the point of a hop, but I completely forgot until I realised today was the date for the hop!

So, if anyone wants to continue this hop (and spare me from embarrassment), please do so. I really encourage it! It was a great set of questions.

If you do answer the hop questions, then please leave a link in the comments, I would love to read what other people have to say 🙂

Hopefully at some point things will calm down again!
