Secondary Characters Back to Blog

I love secondary characters in books. The characters that help to twist and turn the plots, the characters that test the hero and heroine.  The characters that sometimes just be…fun.

One of my all time favorite secondary characters appeared in HOTTER AFTER MIDNIGHT.  The guy I liked so much?  The demon Niol. I liked him so much that I couldn’t just leave him hanging in the wind. I needed to write more about him.

And, with my new release, IMMORTAL DANGER, there are a few other secondary characters that I sure did enjoy.  One character in particular appeared in a not-so-good light (shifter Lucas Simone), and I’ve already had folks asking what will become of him.  (Thank you for asking!  I love it when people contact me about characters!)

If you haven’t read the book (What? Come on, get thee to a bookstore!), and you want a snippet of Lucas Simone’s life, then you can read an excerpt about him over at Lori Devoti’s blog.  I posted the excerpt a few days ago, but click this link and it will take you there (and you can enjoy Lori’s Full Moon of Werewolves fun).

Don’t forget–I’m participating in Candy Ready’s Godiva Week–that means she is posting excerpts and interview responses from me all week. Tomorrow, two commenters will be selected (from all the comments she has received this week), and those people will receive autographed books. So if you get a chance, drop by and comment.

Have a great day!  We’re due for more storms down here, so I’m just going to try to keep dry!

    I’ll check out your excerpt on Lori’s blog. It’s funny. She’s at Magical Musgins today talking about how to use Twitter.

    I’m having a problem in my wip with a secondary character being more fun than the hero. But I need the hero. I just have to make him more interesting.

    Congrats on the new release. When I saw your books in Books a million in Daphne and Biloxi, Miss., I was proud to know one of those authors. You’ve given me a standard to shoot for.

    I went to Lori’s blog and realized I’d been there on Tuesday. 😆 She’s having a fun party at her site.

    Secondary character I really loved was Sebastian St. Vincent. He was introduced in IT HAPPENED ONE AUTUMN by Lisa Kleypas. He defintely was up to no good but yet you could see he had some good in him. Lisa wrote him as the hero in the next book, THE DEVIL IN WINTER. Great story… well the whole Wallflower series is great 🙂

    Hope the storms aren’t too bad, I know they are headed our way 🙁

    Ooh, does this mean Lucas may get his own book? *G* And I thought Lucas sorta redeemed himself (not dropping spoilers). Then again, I try to think the best of anyone. Even werewolves. *G*

    Edie, that just means you’re going to have to write a story for the secondary character! A fun character cannot be ignored!

    Aw, Willa, I’m sorry!

    Thank you, KT! I appreciate you stopping by! How are you?

    Edie, she is having fun! Werewolves are always fun to me. 🙂

    Hi, Michele! Thanks for the book recommendations–I’ll check those out! And you stay safe!

    I’m good now, Azteclady! The clouds were gone a bit ago–so I was finally able to see the stars at night.

    Hey, Brandy! Well, he just might! I do have an idea for him. I started a story for him (did about 30 pages), but I have two other books to write before I can go back to those pages. But doing a story for him is a definite possibility!
