Meet My Character: Karen from The Chosen Series

Welcome to the Meet My Character. Today we will meet Karen.

Karen

Is he/she fictional or a historic person? Fictional

When and where is the story set? The storyline of The Chosen is set in the not top distant past, and ends with the final book set in the very not to distant future.

What should we know about her? Karen is the type of girl who is always searching for something better in life. The daughter of a drunkard mother, she grew up thinking that it was perfectly okay to use and abuse men, as long as it got her what she wanted. She is intelligent, cunning, manipulative. Karen is a party-hard girl and she especially loves it when men fight over her.

Her fav pastimes are spending too much time in-front of the mirror; Spending her boyfriends (yes, she has many boyfriends) money; Drinking; Getting stoned, and having sex (although this one ranks up pretty high on the list).

What is the main conflict? Karen’s only conflict is trying to find a way to escape the small town life. After witnessing the horrific deaths of Tom and Jeff (by the demon, Lutancix), her salvation comes by Alex, who arrives in Winmont to investigate the paranormal incident.

What is the personal goal of the character? Her only focus is to get out of the small town and live in the city. She has no clue what she will do beyond that.

Karen is one of the three main characters in the Chosen Series. She plays an important role in Bloodline Of Darkness, and (spoilers) she is manipulated in Prophecy’s End to bring about the downfall of Alex. Just who manipulates her, I will not say as that will give you the ending 😉

There is a feature film adaptation of the first book. You can find out about that film HERE.

Meet My Character: Jamiesonn from The Chosen Series

Welcome to the Meet My Character. Today we will meet the bad-ass Jamiesonn and find out what makes him tick

Jamiesonn

Is he/she fictional or a historic person? Fictional

When and where is the story set? The storyline of The Chosen is set in the not top distant past, and ends with the final book set in the very not to distant future.

What should we know about him/her? For those who has read previous books in The Chosen series, you will know that Jamiesonn is not the type of demon you want to mess with. Originally born in 1329 in the remote village of Nesikan, Russia. He grew up for the most part in a small hut with his mother, Olga. During his younger years, he was the victim of verbal and physical abuse on a daily basis. By the time he was a teenager, he had been so conditioned to the abuse that each day, he almost looked forward to what form of punishment he would suffer at the hands of his mother.

Soon after his 15th birthday, he met his cousin, Danska, for the first time, and in the spring of 1345, he married his beloved, and for a season, a hope for a better life….

His idealistic life quickly became a nightmare, as the abuse from his mother continued, and he was married to a woman who despised him no end. A year after they were married, Danska gave birth to a stillborn, male child, which naturally was not his. It was then, that his eyes were opened and he became blood-thirsty for revenge. His undying hunger for vengeance fueled his insatiable rage.

He got his revenge… Six years later. I wont say what happens, but during the years he left that shit-hole he became “a better man”…

If I tell any more, that would give away the game. So you’ll just have to have a read of the books to find out just how evil he truly is.

What is the main conflict? Jamiesonn never found peace. Neither in life or death. After his horrific murder (no spoilers here on how he was killed), he came back to haunt the living, and of course, create his own kind of mayhem for anyone he wants to torment. Which just happens to be everyone 🙂

What is the personal goal of the character? His personal goal? Complete and total world domination. He will find some form of satisfaction when all of creation is at his mercy (although we all know he is not one to show any form of mercy).

Is there a working title for this novel, and can we read more about it? Prophecy’s End is the title of the final book. But you can read about Jamiesonn in the other 3 novels; Rise Of The Darkness, Bloodline Of Darkness; and She’s Not So Ordinary. (BTW: If you want to see some film snippets, a production company in QLD, Australia has released a trailer for Rise of The Darkness, which they hope will be filming the feature film in 2015/2016).

When can we expect the book to be published? The first three books are available now in Print and Ebook. (Rise Of The Darkness is also available in Audiobook. Prophecy’s End is still in the works.

 

 

Meet My Character: Alex Manning from The Chosen Series

Welcome to the Meet My Character blog tour! Emmy Z. Madrigal invited me to this blog tour, and she is an amazing author. Go check her out here: SweetDreamsNovel.com

Alex Manning

Is he/she fictional or a historic person? Fictional

When and where is the story set? This story is set in the very not to distant future

What should we know about him/her? For those who has read previous books in The Chosen series, you will know that Alex has a very hard time dealing with anything that he cannot control (Yes, he’s a bit of a control freak). He hates conflict. He hates what lays in the darkness. He despises that he was “chosen” to put an end to the oncoming Apocalypse. He would rather spend his Saturday afternoon watching the football and have a few beers with his mates, or hitting the clubs and picking up girls.

What is the main conflict? Alex has been Chosen to make a stand and stop an oncoming Apocalypse before it starts. At the start of the series, he is an ordinary bloke, with a 9 to 5 job, and a real shitty life. A real underdog. Before he really knows what is going on, he in thrust into a world of one supernatural incidents after another and soon discovers that he is the “one” pre-destined to save humanity. From that point on, he must face demons, fight imaginations, and loose his life in order to regain it. What really messes him up is, not only is he fighting demonic forces that make the Antichrist look like a Sunday School picnic, but is his own fold he has people who set out to betray him. There are 2 main characters in Alex’s life. Karen, who decides to hook up with Alex for her own best interests, and ends up staying with him for years, and Jamiesonn.. A supernatural being who has a personal vendetta against everyone.

There are other characters along the way in the main three books (Rise Of The Darkness, Bloodline Of Darknesss and Prophecy’s End), such as the fallen angel Tanzac (Who was one of the angels cast out of paradise at the beginning of time). Tanzac is a supernatural being who has the notion that if he can destroy the Chosen One, maybe.. just maybe, he can unleash Hell on Earth and make humanity suffer an eternity of torment.

So not only does Alex have Jamiesonn to content with, but also Tanzac and his horde of demons.

What is the personal goal of the character? His personal goal – or hope – is that this is just a bad dream and someday he will wake up. Failing that, then he hopes that one day the Apocalypse will be stopped and he can get back to a somewhat normal life.

Is there a working title for this novel, and can we read more about it? Prophecy’s End is the title. Snippets here and there are released on my blog from time to time.

When can we expect the book to be published? The first three books are available now in Print and Ebook. I would hope that this final chapter in Alex’s life will be released in 2015. Then again, it is a matter of when I can get my own thinking in line and get my focus back on finishing this story 🙂
