A friend of mine in the town where I reside invited me onto her blog as a guest. Isn’t that sweet? Jessica Brooks is an author as well, her genre “young adult” fiction (see bio on Jessica down below) and her blog is My Thoughts Exactly where she has started a new program called “Local Author Wednesday” as a special time to highlight writers within the communities of the Central Valley in California. Nice!
I was up first, my post on May 1 accommodating Jessica’s theme described like this: “In my book, Pity Isn’t An Option, Jonas, the male main character, writes a few meaningful words on a particular item and ends up giving it to someone. I thought this would be a fun theme to carry on in the Local Author Wednesdays.”
I think so too! What a fabulously unique idea! Naturally I chose Dr. George Darcy, the star of my most recent novel The Passions of Dr. Darcy. The exercise of seriously dwelling on which words he would consider the most memorable and important, and what object he would write them on, was really fun.
Come by My Thoughts Exactly to find out what George and I came up with. I am also hosting a GIVEAWAY of one copy of The Passions of Dr. Darcy (eBook or print, winner’s choice), so be sure to enter that!
