So, here we are with what is now the fourth in our still pretty new Questions that Matter blog series. And if you aren’t aware of where it came from, here’s the quick history (for the last time).
We had a release party on Facebook for our newest book, The Parliament of Twilight Episode 2 and it was lots of fun! We didn’t have many attendees (only 10 brave souls, if I’m being honest) but that was probably because I up and decided on Saturday to host an event on Tuesday. I’d read a marketing article that said events were a great way to reach people with the new Facebook page algorithms making everything all wonky. So, I thought, why not give it a try?
Anyone who is interested can still go and answer the two poll questions that I’ve posted to gather a bit of info about what to do for the next one. Remember, Episode 3 will be here before we know it!
One of the things we did at the party was answer questions from readers. That was so much fun for me! I loved doing it when we did our blog tour back in 2013 (while we were still baby authors!) and it was just as awesome as I hoped talking to people and answering questions about our process and characters.
And now that we have that out of the way, let’s get to the last question that came from the release party which is also, ironically, the first question that was asked. It was our #1 fangirl and editing genius Seth. (and as usual, this was copied directly from Facebook.)
First question! From Seth. Do you (either or both) have a character that is the hardest for you to write and why?
Funny thing is, Nevi and I were just talking about this the other day in the car!
I personally find that Julian the hardest to write. There are plenty of characters that I write who are complicated and sometimes just plain unpleasant, but with Julian it’s really different. He scares me a little because I’m never quite sure how he’s going to react to situations. With most of the others, I sort of already know what they will do or say in most situations. But Julian has this dangerous undercurrent to him that keeps me on my toes.
I’ll track down Nevi and get her to answer this too! Thanks for the question, Seth!
I was never able to convince Nev to answer this one, but she’s super shy, so you know.
Did you have some questions that you never got answered? Don’t be shy! You can message me, Dani Hermit, through our Facebook page or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “The Questions that Matter submission” and I will post the answers in our blog!
