I was tagged in the character blog hop by the wonderful Maya Goode, who you can read more about at the end of this post.
1) What is the name of your character? Is he/she fictional or a historic person?
Her name is Emmaline Black, and as far as I know, she didn’t exist until I dreamed her up, but you never know. Spookier things have happened.
2) When and where is the story set?
In London, England. In a church called St. Clements Danes that was nearly burned to the ground in 1941 and then rebuilt again. The Sad State of Emmaline Black is set before the fire though, way back in the 19th century. I think I just mentioned the fire thing because I’m a macabre sort of person.
3) What should we know about him/her?
Emmaline is repeatedly accused of being a witch, which is rather inconvenient when Londoners insist on doing things like drowning and stoning witches at every opportunity.
4) What is the main conflict? What messes up his/her life?
The above, of course. And her temper, which flares up and causes her problem after problem.
5) What is the personal goal of the character?
When Emma hears a rumor that her long-absent mother was a hideously evil witch, she sets out to prove that it isn’t true.
6) Is there a working title for this novel, and can we read more about it?
The Sad State of Emmaline Black is not available to read anywhere. Yet.
7) When can we expect the book to be published?
Sad State is a WIP (work in progress) so hopefully someday in the future!
