I have done this so many times. I’ve been out to dinner with my husband discussing other things and just blurted out something having to do with one of my characters.
It’s funny but probably more to me than my husband.
Characters become so much a part of an author. I’m sure this is because they originate in us and usually have some of our characteristics.
Recently, my mother, who read my book and loved it, told me it took her till halfway through reading it before she stopped seeing me as one of the main characters.
Anyway, our characters become us, just as we become them. Sometimes in big ways, other times, less so.
I am pleased to say that my free promo is going very well. So far, over 500 people have picked up my book.
Now my biggest wish is that I get some reviews out of it, but mostly I hope they enjoy the book.
Hello. I am the author of the Historical Fiction novel called Mamie Garrison. It is a tale of slavery, abolition, romance and history, set in the years just prior to the Civil War. It is available on Kindle for .99 and on Kindle Unlimited; also in paperback. Mamie Garrison has a dual storyline. The present day story involves Bella and Andrew finding Mamie's journals. Their story includes romance and paranormal aspects. Mamie's story follows her adventures as an abolitionist through her journals. There are some mysteries as well as an unusual background in Mamie's life. I am 59 and married with one adult child and one grandchild. I have always enjoyed the written word and have been a voracious reader from my early youth. I am inspired by many authors in the historical fiction genre. I am also a lover of Russian literature, particularly Tolstoy and Doestoyefsky. I find great inspiration for creating characters by looking at the ones these two authors have created. There is such a depth to them. I have written for most of my life in one form or another. I have dabbled in poetry and songwriting, and have more started novels than finished ones. In my free time, I like reading, history and travel. I am interested in genealogy and working on my family tree. I live in the Midwest United States with my husband, Chris and my dog, Max.
