Guest Character Interview: Narah Dagan

Guest Character Interview: Narah Dagan

This interview actually comes at an opportune time, because it gives me the perfect opening to share my best friend’s new blog! Allegra/Allie is the author that Narah belongs to, and she just started a blog called Of Rainy Days and Stardust Veins. She plans to share various thoughts on life, hearts (she’s working toward becoming a cardiologist and she’s super passionate about hearts), writing and art… pretty much everything. She’s awesome, her thoughts are really interesting to read and she tends to have a really poetic writing style… You should go check out her blog.

Narah is a character from Allegra’s novel Sigma, which is a really cool high fantasy she’s writing. Narah is looking to become the apprentice of the second main character, Nori (who’s amazing and kind of like Detren and really sweet and one of my favorites), and so far she hasn’t come up in the story itself but she’s appearing in the next chapter Allegra’s writing and I’m super excited to see how she is in story form. She appeared on the roleplay that Allegra and I are part of because Nori ended up talking about her and now she’s a cool character, so… yeah. I hope you enjoy her interview!

Snippet Sunday: The Heart of the Baenor

Snippet Sunday: The Heart of the Baenor

This week’s Snippet Sunday is rather short, since I really wanted to share with you a piece of writing that I’ve cut from The Heart of the Baenor. I really like this piece, but pieces of the plot have changed too dramatically for it to work anymore as-is, and I was only able to piece a tiny bit of it back into the current draft. Enjoy. :) Continue reading “Snippet Sunday: The Heart of the Baenor”

Book Review: Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton

Book Review: Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton

Overall this book was okay. It wasn’t great, it wasn’t terrible. As I was talking over it with my best friend in the car on the way home I figured out it’s because the bones are good but the main character isn’t really as fleshed out as she could be. So let’s start with characters, shall we?

All of the characters in this book were kind of one-dimensional. None of them were boring, per se, but none of them were particularly deep. They were all pretty “what you see is what you get,” and with quite a few of them “what you see” wasn’t much. The main character, Continue reading “Book Review: Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton”

Character Interview: Cordain Celebar

Character Interview: Cordain Celebar

Cordain is a secondary character from The Heart of the Baenor, which I’m currently working on the third draft of. He’s an elf from the region Shae-Nir in Kaloris, and he sees the world very different from Catessa, who’s the main character of the book. (Somehow I haven’t interviewed her yet.) One of the things I most miss after having changed the novel to be almost entirely from Catessa’s point-of-view is that Cordain’s cool worldview doesn’t get explored nearly as much. But on to the interview. :)
