Look, fellahs, I am trying real hard to ignore you here, so can we just can it? Viking week is what we agreed on.
heroine of my recently contracted to Soul Mate Publishing book….
Now I’m continuing…right, by answering set questions…
What is the name of your character? Is he/she fictional or a historic person?
Sin Gudrunsson is a purely fictional creation…Alas….
When and where is the story set?
It’s a timeslip romance alternatively set in London in 1819 where there’s a complete absence of hamsters and Norway in 898 where there’s an even more complete absence of hamsters.
Next… (Listen pal, I set this in Denmark till a certain giraffe incident had me making my humble protest!)
Apart from the fact he’s sumexy as hell? And hot in bed? Well Sin is a Viking obviously but a very conflicted individual. Lands and farms always passed down to the oldest son and Sin, being the second son, has suffered a ton of hardship in his life because of that. And cos his older brother was a shit to him, his mother, sisters and younger brother basically. As a boy Sin knew starvation.
What is the main conflict? What messes up his/her life?
Actually little fellahs I don’t want to give away too much but you’re not exactly far off the mark.
so some of his conflict comes from the fact he’s now trading in slaves, raiding, doing everything to ensure his future.
Not the thing to say to Malice.
What is the personal goal of the character?
Sin wants to marry his childhood sweetheart.But Snotra’s twice dissed him for richer men. So now he’s suddenly good enough cos she’s penniless, he’s rich from slaving and he wants to keep her on her toes as well as ensure he is good enough.
Is there a working title for this novel and can we read more about it?
Right now it’s just been contracted by Soul Mate Publishing, which I’m excited about. I’ve not written the blurb yet, but I am using this tag line at the moment –
Don’t you little dudes get ANY fancy ideas here ok…. I do NOT expect to see Hamstahs scrawled across that promo card or you know where you’ll be.
