Today I'll be at Michael Offutt's blog to discuss how my villain the Black Dragoon compares to "Breaking Bad."
The schedule for the rest of the week:
- Tuesday I'll be on Laura Diamond's blog and discussing superhero psychoses
- Wednesday I'll be on Rusty Carl's blog to discuss designing the cover
- Thursday I'll be on the Chubby Chatterbox's blog with a little reminiscing
- Friday I'll be on The Best of Everything to discuss the Best Scarlet Knight Power
- Saturday I'll be on Thinking the Lions to compare my book and McDonald's cheeseburgers (You know you don't want to miss that!)
If you've followed this blog for any amount of time then you've probably seen the Sim portrait of the hero of my novel A A Hero's Journey, if not in an article than down on one of those links at the bottom. You can always see her in the Character Bios if nothing else. Just to refresh your memory:
Anyway, so I've been painstakingly working on the sequel this year, which has involved a few setbacks. In that sequel, someone changes history so that Emma's parents are still alive and Emma herself looks a little different too. She looks like this:
The obvious difference is that her hair is shorter and curlier, which is supposed to be more like her mother's than before. A more subtle difference is that she's tarted-up a bit more in terms of the makeup and clothes. This Emma favors tube tops instead of baggy T-shirts and at the office her skirts are a lot shorter. The idea being that this Emma is a bit more fun than the original in part because her parents are alive and in part because in this timeline her genius drove her to the brink of a nervous breakdown that led to drinking and some promiscuity. Maybe if you look at them back-to-back like this you can tell the difference. Or not. She should have an orange Snooki tan but I don't think there's a way to do that in the program.
Tuesday is another Two-Fer!
