Hi All!

Today is Day One of Three of the I'm Hearing Voices Blogfest.  Rules for today:




Have one of your characters answer the following questions (to make this work to your benefit, choose a character who is the hardest for you to write :) Max 250 words (Not including the questions—only the answers).

  1. What is your biggest vulnerability? Do others know this or is it a secret?
  2. What do people believe about you that is false?
  3. What would your best friend say is your fatal flaw? Why?
  4. What would the same friend say is your one redeeming quality? Why?
  5. What do you want most? What will you do to get it?




Monday’s Prize’s

The Color Code by Taylor Hartman

Nightshade by Andrea Cremer

All right, so onto the fest!

I used my MC from Break Free, Kiel Reaux:

What is your biggest vulnerability? Do others know this or is it a secret?
Bees. Hands down. Or anything related to bees, like hornets and giant skin-meting wasps. Seriously, if I could, I'd stomp every bee into the ground. And hell no, other's don’t know this. Why would I ever tell them? Bad boy image ruined.

What do people believe about you that is false?

False? Hell baby, everything you see on Kiel Reaux is homegrown awesomeness topped off with great hair. Nothing about me is false. Wait, okay, I just thought of something. Technically, I swallowed this spell-stone. It gives me some weird magical powers. So, I guess that’s false. BUT IT WAS NOT ON PURPOSE. It’s important to know this. OK, I mean, yes, swallowing the stone was on purpose. BUT – and pay attention now – the magical side effects were not intended by me. And that’s what’s important. Intention.
What were we talking about?
What would your best friend say is your fatal flaw? Why?
I talk too much. Clearly. Do you know how many times my mouth has gotten me in trouble? A lot. But do you know how many times it’s gotten me out of trouble? Three. Yeah. So there’s that.
What would the same friend say is your one redeeming quality? Why?
Seriously? I mean, why don’t you ask my friends? There’s the kid, or Lala or… OK, well, anyway, the kid would probably mention how I’m the best person with a knife in the three cities. And that is a fact. Lala…I don’t know what she'd say. Maybe about how I make her knees weak with just a glance. Yes, ladies, I am that good.
What do you want most? What will you do to get it?
Freedom. I’m not even joking now. Freedom. And I will do anything…anything to get it.

All right, so there you have it!
I'll be back on Wednesday for part 2 of this three part blogfest.
What about you? Are you participating?

And please don't forget to sign up for the Teenage Heartthrob Blogfest, hosted by Me, Emily White and Vic Caswell. I want to see pics of those celebs that tantalized teenage you!

Kiel's a just a tad bit conceited, no? And I have to agree with him about the bees. I got stung last year and it wasn't pretty.

Justine Dell said...

I love him already!

And I was suppposed to do this blogfest, but I couldn't find the time to finish the post! ARGH!

i love Kiel

K. Turley (Clutzattack) said...

It's so funny he admits that he talks too much when most guys I know use about half the number of words I do to say the same thing.

Stephen Tremp said...

Yeah, I can see that bad boy image fly away as he's running away from bees hahaha. I can laugh because I've been there.

Slamdunk said...

I am enjoying these MC interviews Sarah. Sounds like you have a very independent one.

Southpaw said...

That was a cute interview. It's a great way to see a character. I love that he is that good---except around bees.

Teebore said...

Nice job. I like the reference to Kiel's small number of friends. I was thinking of that when I got to that question.

Kyra Lennon said...

BRILLIANT! One of my favourites of the day. I love the way Kiel speaks, he's so completely confident - and I love that he rambles a bit when he is explaining about his magic powers! Loved it!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

That was hilarious! He is a bit talkative for a dude.

Matthew MacNish said...

Hah! What a fun character. Great exercise. I wonder who it would be hardest for me to do this for?

Kaye Manro said...

This is so interesting. It shows a nice development of characters too!

Cassie Mae said...

I'm terrified of Bees too! Die bees die!

This was a fantastic interview! Love this kid already :)

Michael Offutt, Tebow Cult Initiate said...

Freedom is an interesting choice and a good reminder that we should never take it for granted.

Emily R. King said...

Cool blogfest! What a great way to get inside the minds of your characters! Kiel sounds like quite the bad-ass loverboy. Great voice!

Bees. I agree. Great voice.

Talli Roland said...

Wow, Kiel has quite the personality! I love how it shines through in his answers.

Sara said...

I love that he knows that he talks to much. And he is quite talkative.

Ashley Nixon said...

Bees! I laughed out loud!
I think Kiel and I have the whole talking too much in common! hahaha.

Danielle B. said...

Great voice! I like this blog hop. Thanks for sharing Kiel with us.

Trisha said...

Great interview with a clear ladies' man. hahaha. I love the arrogant types like this, they're amusing. There's also something a little irresistible about them, sometimes. ;)

Hywela Lyn said...

Great interview, he's very sure of himself isn't he!
