I was tagged by the truly gnarly Anabelle Bryant for this author blog hop discussing our main characters. Anabelle writes historical romance, and you can meet her own character and learn about her work HERE.
For this blog hop, I’ve chosen to spotlight the tortured & gun-toting vampire badass, Xander Stryker, from the CRIMSON SHADOW series (get your copy of book #1, “Noir”, on Amazon Kindle HERE or your favorite ePub platform for FREE).
1) What is the name of your character?
Xander Stryker (known begrudgingly by his fellow vampires & non-humans as the “Crimson Shadow”).
2) When and where is the story set?
Here and now (could be your own town).
3) What should we know about him/her?
He’s had a very painful life, and he’s not yet accustomed to being liked/loved (even less accustomed to the adoration he receives from the non-human community; the hatred, however, he’s more than used to).
4) What is the main conflict? What messes up his/her life?
While Xander is frequently pitted against a great number of enemies, the greatest conflict he continues to face is with himself. An abusive upbringing and witnessing the assault and murder of his mother as a young boy has never ceased to draw out the worst in him.
5) What is the personal goal of the character?
To survive… even if he sometimes doesn’t want to.
6) Is there a working title for this novel, and can we read more about it?
The fourth book in the Crimson Shadow series will be titled, “Dance with the Devil”. News on that title (and others by yours truly) can be seen on my Facebook author page at https://www.facebook.com/Nathan.Squiers, and readers who have yet to experience the series can get their FREE copy of book #1, “Noir”, on all major platforms. On Kindle athttp://www.amazon.com/Crimson-Shadow-Noir-Nathan-Squiers-ebook/dp/B00HFKJ6US/ (or simply search “Nathan Squiers Noir” wherever you like to get your eBooks).
7) When can we expect the book to be published?
“Crimson Shadow: Dance with the Devil” will be available later this year from Tiger Dynasty Publishing.
