Oh, My Hero!


This week I'm participating in a blog hop hosted by two of my NA ('new adult') sisters, Jaycee DeLorenzo and Victoria Smith. The instructions were simple: "On April 27th, post a picture of your hero with a character interview that has at least 5 questions." Shiny! I can do that. :) 

Some of you will remember Wallace from Casting Call... 


He's the deeply conflicted hero of my paranormal romance, Strength, and for the purposes of this 'hop, I gave him a worksheet:





























































 
Aww, gotta love him. :) So, what about you guys? 

What's the hero in your latest book like?

Have a great weekend!

P.S. If you're looking for my interview with Cindy Hogan, you can find it here. :)
[Note] I purchased a Fotolia license for this image. (And if I end up going the self-pub route, you better believe you'll see it again. Rowr!) Anyway, I'd advise against reposting it. We want to be respectful of the photographer and model. Oh, and I'm pretty sure it's illegal. That is all.:)

Ah! How swoon worthy! He's so tortured and sexy his heroine is probably completely overwhelmed with his deliciousness! And I love how you did your questions. Very original :D. Thanks for joining the hop Carrie!

Danielle B. said...

Oh I love your creativity! Great job on the whole interview. I would definitely swoon for him. I love his answers and his honesty.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Sounds like a good mixture of characters for your hero.

Kyra Lennon said...

Love the way you did the interview! Wallace sounds kinda fascinating - I liked him a lot!

Talli Roland said...

Wallace sounds great! Good choice of a hero. :)

Juliana Haygert said...

Nice way of coming up with an interview!
Your hero sounds like a great character! Love the troubled ones ;)

ilima said...

What a creative way to interview. I loved it.

Suzi said...

Love is something you forge together. Not something you think you feel--that's a terrific line. And I like how you did the interview, great idea.

Cassie Mae said...

I love Wallace! And how creative the way you did this. I love seeing guy's handwriting. :)

Donna K. Weaver said...

This is wonderful. I love the handwriting, especially the scribbled out stuff. That gets such fun insight into the characters.

Carrie-Anne said...

I love your unique approach to the interview!

Jennifer said...

Loved, loved, loved the worksheet! So fun and it gave us an even more personal look at Wallace. Oh yeah, and the photo? Seriously hot!

A.J. Locke said...

He's hot! Loved his interview

Nancy Thompson said...

Oooh, is THAT what Wallace looks like? Wish I had that pic before I read Strength. Yowza!

Melissa said...

Loved the worksheet approach - very original! And you know I love me some Wall. LOL Great interview! :D

Jack said...

I guess I'm the only guy courageous enough (or silly enough) to comment! Anywayzzzzzuh! I love the answer to the last question "I'd tell her everything." This line is so telling of a person's character that it blows me away if a woman wouldn't like a guy like that. Okay, now I'll shut up. LOL ;)

Jenn Hartz said...

I like how you did the write in answer. Very cool... and, of course, there's nothing wrong with the really ripped guy sans shirt! :)

Aldrea Alien said...

Oh, I love the answers. ^_^

Summer Lane said...

Omg, that answer worksheet was amazingly clever. I loved, loved it!!!! :) He sounds dreamy.

Jaycee DeLorenzo said...

Love the worksheet! He sounds and looks swoonworthy. Wonder what he has to tell her. :D

Thanks for participating!

Andrea said...

Wallace Blake.. I like the name! I thought it was very creative how you created the interview as a questionnaire that he filled out. Awww.. not matter what he does he ends up hurting people..I thought it was great how he crossed out some answers ;) Very nicely done!

Andrea

Jackie said...

Brilliant! This is one of my favorites in the hero blog hop!

Carrie Butler said...

Thank you, Ilima! I had a lot of fun with it. :)

Carrie Butler said...

Thank you, Suzi! I appreciate that. :)

Carrie Butler said...

Thanks, Cassie! You should have seen me sifting through fonts, laboring over the decision... LOL :)

Carrie Butler said...

Thanks, Donna! It was fun getting into his mindset. :)

Carrie Butler said...

Thanks, Carrie-Anne! :)

P.S. Great name!

Carrie Butler said...

Thanks, Jennifer! I'm on my way to check out your hero now. :D

Carrie Butler said...

Thanks, A.J.! :)

Carrie Butler said...

Yep! Give the guy bright blue eyes, spike his hair a little, and you've got our hero. ;)

Carrie Butler said...

Thanks, Melissa! :) Hah! I almost forgot about Wall...

Carrie Butler said...

I think Alex might object to you taking his man card, but yes, you're quite the brave one. *Grins* Thank you! I hope to see you around here more often!

Carrie Butler said...

Thanks, Jenn! I'm glad you enjoyed the eye-candy. ;)

Carrie Butler said...

Thank you, Aldrea! :D

Carrie Butler said...

Thanks, Summer! I'm so glad. :D

Carrie Butler said...

Thanks, Jaycee! Oh, he has plenty to tell her... ;)

Thank you for hosting! :D

Iain said...

Your crossing out of girlfriend and changing it to friend made me laugh. He's still fighting it.

Carrie Butler said...

Wow. Thanks, Jackie! :D

Carrie Butler said...

Thank you, Andrea! I hope you'll get to read more about Wallace in the future. ;)

Carrie Butler said...

Typical Wallace, huh? *Grins*

The Golden Eagle said...

He sounds like a great character. :D

The hero in the last book I finished was the highly introverted, quiet type. (Looking back on it, I put a lot of my own personality into him . . .)

Rachel Morgan said...

Awwwww! I love that last answer: I'd tell her everything.

Okay, random question: what is the font you used for his handwriting? I like! And how did you do the crossing out thing? (Which was a nice touch, btw ;-) )

Carrie Butler said...

Who could blame you? It's fun getting to know introverted heroes. :) Thanks, Eagle!

Carrie Butler said...

Thanks, Rachel! The font is called Snake. As for the crossed out entries, that was done in Photoshop. (The whole worksheet was an image.) ;)

Rachel Morgan said...

Thanks for sharing the font name!

Carrie Butler said...

No problem! :)

Joylene said...

I'm late. I love this! What a great idea. You have the most adventurous friends, Carrie. I like Snake. You are so smart! Must run in the family.

Lisa Regan said...

Well you know I heart Wallace big time! Great post!!!!

Carrie Butler said...

Thanks, Joylene! Well, I can't argue with the family thing... *Grins*

Carrie Butler said...

Thanks, Lisa! Wallace hearts you, too! :D
