This week I am on the Blogger Book Fair Tour. For more information on the fair, you can visit their site to learn what it is, who you’ll meet, and the great giveaways and sales on our books. I wrote my introduction for it, so the rest of the week we’re diving in to meet my new friends and authors!
Can I just tell you how much I admire Kayla? Not only is she an author with her own books to write and promote, but she put this whole dang fair together! I can’t imagine – I think I’d cry at all the emails alone. I’m so glad to host our fair creator and fellow author, Kayla Curry!
Building the Evil Tom Walker
Hello! I’m Kayla Curry and I’m honored to be hosted by Liz Long on her blog today for the Blogger Book Fair. As some of you may know I am the creator of Blogger Book Fair, but I am also an author. I write mostly paranormal stuff, but dabble in other genres too. My debut novel has been out for almost a year now. Obsidian is the first in my Mystic Stones Series. I’ve self-published a short story to go along with it titled Ruby: A Mystic Stones Jewel. The second novel in the series will release soon and is titled Moonstone.
In Obsidian, and its shorter companion, Ruby, you will find the character Tom Walker. Tom was a very difficult character to build and he’s probably the most complicated character I’ve ever made up. He’s hot one minute and ice cold the next. Ava Tanner often doesn’t know what to think of him.
As you will see if you pick up Ruby and/or Obsidian, Tom is psychologically unsound, yet he holds everything together while in the company of others. To do this, I had to dig into his past and his feelings for Ava. What does Tom Walker want? What does he need? What will he do to get those things? The answers to those questions can be found in Obsidian, Ruby and eventually the last book of the series, Bloodstone.
Tom is manipulative, secretive, and above all; power hungry. His manipulation of Ava begins the day he meets her. His charm and his kind words pull her in. His secrets are as old as he is and his need for power drives him.
I take all of this into account when Tom is in a scene. He always has an ulterior motive and everything he does and says has a reason behind it. In the last book of the series, everything will be revealed. His entire plot and how he truly feels about Ava will come to light in a way that will make you love him and hate him at the same time. That’s how I intend for it to be with Tom. I want the reader to love him and hate him. I want you, the reader, to experience Ava’s confusion over him.
