Meet My Character Bloghop and Celebrate

I was tagged by Stephanie Farris for the Meet My Character Hop. I love these kind of hops and hoped after reading hers that she would tag me and she did. Thanks Steph and I pre-ordered your featured on your own post this week. If you want the best deals people pre-order books and Stephanie writes delightful books for young people that older fans enjoy as well. Hey I'm thirty this November (29). Anyway on with the hop!

1. What is the name of your character? Is he/she fictional or a historic person?

Sarah Shepleton and she is fictional. But based off the real issue of people going missing in today's world.

2. When and where is the story set?



Modern day America in an unnamed place in Florida.

3. What should we know about him/her?

Sarah is missing and most of the book is spent looking for her. She's a popular girl at her high school. Keeping most things under wraps but keep glued my Author Facebook Page for clues and updates.

4. What is the main conflict? What messes up his/her life?

Starts with Sarah not coming home after a party. As it becomes clear people don't know here she is, concern mounts.
 
5. What is the personal goal of the character?

The book focuses on others trying to find her. So her goal isn't really pushed. But a quick guess would be to be found.

6. Is there a working title for this novel, and can we read more about it?

At first it was Where is Sarah Shelpeton? and was going to be a two book/novella series. Now it's Where is Sarah? and part of a five novellete verse series called Missing Girls Series.


7. When can we expect the book to be published?

I'm planning for February 2015. I have Snow coming July 2015 so plan to finish the Missing Girls Series before then. Also having a cover reveal for Where is Sarah? in early December. Sign ups coming soon.

Now it's time to tag two people. Feel free to ignore the tag if you want, but we'd love to get to know your characters!

I am going to tag three people. Those who are receiving this high honor are:

Elizabeth Seckman: Girl, I want to hear about what you have coming up.

Krista McLaughlin: Psst, maybe someone from Silent Beauty. *Wink* *Wink*

David Powers King: After all the controversy Woven faced on it's amazing journey to publication it would be great to get a peek. Or a preview of something else you're working on David. Oh David....

Celebrate Hop

1. Getting this post up. Seriously this computer on a whole makes dial up seem fast and the internet connectio s even worse. But I did it. Thank you God.

2. Taking part in a word war thingy. More next week.

3. Pre-ordering 25 Roses by Stephanie Farris this week. I was supposed to close the door on anymore book ordering til next month but couldn't resist after reading her character hop on Tuesday. Ordered it on by Thursday and I'm glad I did.

4. I completed a ghostwriting novella order that will deposit a chunk of change for me by month end. I see a laptop in sight for November! 

5. All the success my writing/blogging friends are achieving from writing their books/post to getting published, an agent, etc. No achievement is too small and I celebrate with you.

See you guys on Monday when I will finally get back to book reviews.

  1. Hope you can use that chunk of change to get your computer soon!
    I hope Sarah isn't lost in an unnamed swamp in Florida - there are a lot of those there.

  2. We've just had a 15 year old girl gone missing this summer in my city. The whole country was searching for her for two weeks. She was found raped, naked, burried and dead recently. Her murderer was found and arrested, some 30 year old butcher from other city.

  4. It sounds like a great mystery. :) And I'm curious about what happened to Sarah. Hopefully your computer stops being a pain, but it sounds like a new one could be coming, which is exciting!

    I will definitely share a little from Silent Beauty. I will post tomorrow morning about Jared! :) It sounds like fun.

  10. THANK YOU! Oh wow...I love missing people books. I'm not sure why I'm so fascinated with people who just vanish. It started when I discovered the series "Disappeared" on Discovery ID. Something about the mystery of it all gets me every time.

  21. I like the ideal. So the secondary characters are the ones looking for the main character or did I read that wrong? If not I love the concept.
