Meet My Character Blog Tour...

So the lovely Hart Johnson, our very own Watery Tart, invited me to participate in this blog tour. I like the character she introduced last week. Makes me want to read that book when it does come out. If you haven't seen it, you can hop over here to check out her post.

The rules! They are basically this:

(the rules) This tour highlights a main character from one of your WIP/recently published or soon to be published work. The person who invites you will have a set day to post. You will post ONE WEEK after that. The authors you tag will post one week after you, and so on.

With that being said, I'm going with Captain Sorcha Lilanthroe, well, because it is Talk Like a Pirate Day! And with that in mind, I figure I'll let Sorcha do the talking while I ask the questions. So here we go! ::Does a crazy Kermit the Frog intro:: Yaaay!
Me: What is your name? Are you fictional or historic?

Sorcha: My name is Sorcha Lilanthroe, Captain of the Blue Drake, terror of all the seas...

Me: Erm, yes, yes, I get it.

Sorcha: Well, lass, ye did ask a bloody question. And of course I'm fictional. The only person who hears me is you. ::Snorts::

Me: When and where is your story set?

Sorcha: Iff'n yer talkin' about where I am, well, I'm currently aboard my ship, the Blue Drake. At the moment, it's midday and half the crew is already three sheets to the wind. Iff'n yer askin' what my part in this bard's tale is, then I made the mistake of fishin' a few Nobles out o' the drink. Now they're a barnacle on my backside! We're about to go to battle with a rabid bilge rat called Li'endrin. He's the King, and I use the term loosely, of Relavia.

Me: What should we know about you?

Sorcha: Well, I'm not one to brag, lass. But I have more bounties on my head than I do rats on my ship. Nearly half the kingdoms of this world want me dead. Makes for a very interesting life and I have a wonderful, tropical place where I can hideout and not be disturbed when my crew starts to feel a bit itchy. I'm worried about the effects of my actions. Helping Nobles in not my idea of a good time or a great way to filch some coin. But, I just need to be prepared, make sure I can jump ship when I need to.

Me: So what is the main conflict? What is messing up your life?

Sorcha: Well! I'd like to say it was those bloody Nobles, but truth be told, it's pyrates!! Bloody, flea-ridden sons of goats!

Me: Wait, aren't you a pyrate?

Sorcha: Yes I am! But at least I still have a shred of decency about me. I've only ever attempted to kill another pyrate and now I have half a dozen dogs breathin' down my neck. Why, my own daughter is hells bent on capturing me.

Me: You have a daughter??

Sorcha: Erm, well, yes, I suppose now since that cat is outta the bag, it can't be put back in. Stupid bloody questions.

Me: So what is your goal?

Sorcha: Are ye daft?? Haven't ye been listenin'? To stay alive!

Me: No, there's more than that. Come on.

Sorcha: Bah! I suppose the most important thing is to defeat Li'endrin, make sure I save the skins of my crew and not get caught by some blubbery, pink faced, ungrateful whelp! I don't care what the others have to do, I'm saving my hide first.

 Me: Well, there we have it. That's Sorcha. Thanks, Sorcha!

Sorcha: ::Grumbles and heads for the gangplank::

Me: This is actually from book two. The working title for it is "Veritas", which, of course, is Latin for Truth. I don't have much more about it out at the moment. I've been slowly working on revisions and hope to have it out sometime next year. Hopefully the beginning of the year.

Now I'm supposed to tag other authors in this, so... I can always count on my sister-in-law when it comes to writing! So, I tag Cheri Chesley. Her blog is over here. Check it out and make sure you go back next Friday!
