Meet My Character Blog Tour

July 21, 2014 Blog Hop 4

I was tagged to take part in this lovely tour but the even more lovely Toni Lesatz. Do you all know Toni? I know you do, because she’s awesome!

You can stalk Toni at these places: Blog | Facebook | Twitter

And I know you all want to meet the girl who’s beating around in her head! So head on over to My Book Addiction to find out!

So which one of my girls do I share with you. There’s Blake, Jordan, Marilyn, and Joss… Oh and the Gallowin sisters. But that’s just a for fun thing I work on every now and then.



What is the name of your character? Is he/she fictional or a historic person? Let’s go with….JOSS! 

When and where is the story set? It’s present day, and Minneapolis. 

What should we know about him/her? Joss is a cold person. Not mean. She’s just completely emotionally shut down. She completely aware of how closed off she is though. So seeing her self awareness as she struggles to survive in the crappy life she’s made for herself has been a real treat to write. She spends a lot of time in her own head, and is completely sarcastic. 

What is the main conflict? What messes up his/her life? Her husband is a complete dick. I know this sounds like it’s not a huge deal. Lot’s of people have jerks for husbands, but Jake is over the top selfish. 

What is the personal goal of the character? To find her backbone again. Seriously. It’s not a complex story, but it’s a lot of fun to write so far. 

Is there a working title for this novel, and can we read more about it? Right now in my writers group we are referring to it as Lori’s Sexy WIP. And yes, it’s a sexy book. 

When can we expect the book to be published? Possibly in 2015. I hope to have a book written before UtopYA next year, but I don’t set publishing goals for myself. I’m so new at writing that just writing is a huge accomplishment for me. 

I’m tagging EMILY GOODWIN to tell us all about one of her characters! Emily is the bestselling author of Stay, Contagious and Deathly Contagious! Be sure to check her out!
