Hey, everyone. I’m super excited to be here today! The Wasteland Blog Tour has been so much fun. I’ve got to meet tons of people and have found lots of blogs I’ve added to my list to follow.
Throughout the tour so far, the most asked question I’ve found was about my characters. How did I come up with them, specifically David? He’s the main character, and Wasteland is written in first person from a male point of view and that male is a half-demon…
Some people found that intriguing.
I’ve never really thought about it. It’s just how I roll. I write what comes to me. And strangely enough, a four hundred year old, male, half-demon came to mind one day in early December 2009.
But I’m a chick, how can I write a male point of view. And in first person!
Yeah, well, I guess we’ll be able to tell if I can by the sales, huh? No, but seriously, I had to pull on my resources for sure. Talking with guys, studying guys’ reactions to things, drawing from my psychology degrees…lots of resources out there for research.
David was fun to write because he’s mean. Kinda grumpy (who wouldn’t be after 250 years in solitary, huh?) And, he’s a killer. Can’t exist for over four centuries without having killed a few people, right. Plus, he runs souls for the devil, and that tends to get messy.
So tell me, what questions do you have? Leave one in the comments below, and you’ll be entered into a drawing for a signed copy of Wasteland! If the winner doesn’t reside in the US, I’ll send an electronic copy of the book in its place.
I’ll check back and answer your questions…and you never know, David might show up too, so feel free to leave him a question as well! I’ll have William draw a winner some time tomorrow and then we’ll be in touch!
Book Blurb:
Bound by the blood contract his human mother signed four centuries ago, half-demon, David Sadler, must obey his demonic Master’s order to capture fifteen-year-old Jessica Hanks. But as he learns more about her, he realizes she may be the key to freedom from his demonic enslavement.
The only obstacle—Jessica’s distractingly beautiful Guardian, Rebeka Abbott. He must not give in to their steamy chemistry, or he will lose his humanity. But fresh off a quarter millennia of sensory deprivation as punishment for not retrieving his last target, he may not be able to resist temptation long enough to save what’s left of his human soul.

  1. Hi, William. Thanks for having me here and being a part of the blog tour!!! 🙂

  2. Hi Lynn,My question is about David. He's such a complex character, did you plan this from the beginning or did it develope as you wrote the story?

  3. Anytime. Thank you for coming! 😀

  4. Lynn,When writing David in first person, did you ever have to go back and scrap a piece you had written because it seemed a bit feminine?-Amy Eye

  5. These are great questions above and I can't wait to see the answers. It is funny how someone (like David) you don't think you'd ever root for, but in this story you do! Have you written any other characters (heroes or heroines) in any of your other books like that- where you don't think you'd want them to "win" but you do? Can you discuss or would that be a spoiler? 😉

  6. Will you ever write another book from a male POV?

  7. Hey, Murdersandmysteries: Oh, David developed as we went along, for sure. He morphed into something deeper than I'd originally planned, but that's usually how it works. I start with a little picture/idea and I let my characters grow as I write. It's really fun to watch. :)Dranea: Yep, for surely did. I had to chip away my feminine tendency to over describe/talk about feelings….And my Super Editor caught more of it during the editing process as well! But I do love writing from the Male POV! :)Erin: I have a couple books that might never see the light of day in which my character is pretty rough in the beginning….not very likable at all…but in the end, they turn it around. They aren't quite demons…but still. But like I said, these books might never see the light of day because of that unless I do some serious rewriting. 🙂 Ciara: Yes, actually. Book II to Wasteland is done in another male character's POV. I really enjoy writing that perspective a lot! So we'll see what happens after that. 🙂
