It’s already day three of the Forgotten Memories blog tour. Today we’re meeting the characters and I’m sharing some of my favorite quotes. Oh, and there are chances to win a copy of the book as well!
Don’t forget to stop by all of the fantastic blogs and instagram accounts for author interviews, guest posts, and book graphics. And starting today, you have a chance to win one of two copies of Forgotten Memories! (Paperback for U.S. residents; ebooks for international winners). All of the details are below.
Meet the Characters
Creating characters is one of the most exciting things for an author. We give them personalities, struggles, hopes, and dreams. Many of us find photos of our characters on Pinterest. Some of us, myself included, have the characters from my current work-in-progress taped to the computer monitor. As a visual person, that helps greatly in helping me form a well-rounded character.
Caleb Eliason, in my mind, looked exactly like a much-younger Brad Pitt… (image courtesy of Pinterest).
Annie Ledbetter, on the other hand, looked exactly like the model on the book cover. However, one of my readers also pointed out that she thought Annie resembled a much younger Nicole Kidman. (Image courtesy of Pinterest).
I rarely watch the typical Hollywood movie fare and almost never have seen the movies I find my characters from; however, I do watch (and occasionally review) clean movies, so sometimes I do find a character or two in those movies as well.
My Pinterest board includes some other characters such as Cain and Louie and other fun items such as Reverend Solomon and Lydie’s house, the school where Annie teaches, the church the characters attend, and the wagon Annie’s family traveled in during their journey to the Wyoming Territory.
