What's Happening Now?

Late October was the last time that we had a character update, and I'm sure a lot has happened since then. So, hopefully, you'll welcome another round of “What's Happening Now?” – a chance for characters to reveal their current, or at least most recent, whereabouts. In this way, authors can share what's happening within their stories by speaking through their characters' unique voices.

So, let's hear it, ladies, gents, and creatures! What have you done over the past eight months or so? Fought any ruthless tyrants? Stumbled upon any hidden treasures? Found yourself amid any breathtaking, hard-to-forget landscapes?

Feel free to spill any and all of your latest adventures, and hopefully, by revealing where you are in your story, you'll help inspire your authors to keep moving forward with theirs.

Remember, this is for characters only!

Um. Got married. Saved my wife and sister-in-law from several incidents.

And other news, which I can't tell yet.

Kaelin said...

I married Ginger.

Olivia Harper said...

Of course, all that happened in the blogosphere, right? Not in your author's actual novels... or have two worlds really combined?

Ginger said...

Well Kaelin certainly can't marry anyone else! Not until I die, anyway. Which hopefully won't be for at least another fifty years or so.

Oh, wait. He can't marry ever again. I forgot. Like Jason.

Lucy said...

(rolls eyes) They neglected to mention the first book of the series comes out January 2012 from Whiskey Creek Press.

Kaelin said...

No. I won't marry anyone else, Ginger.

Olivia Harper said...

Well, Lucy, you can't expect boys to remember such details, so thanks for sharing - and congrats, of course!

Chelsey (Flutterby) said...

My sister died, because of me. I tried, but I couldn't help her. It should have been me.

Ginger said...

Oh Chelsey, I'm so sorry.

Vengeance (Damien) said...

I found out why my Dad became an alcoholic, and why I roam the streets searching for justice. She and Dad were attacked, and Dad tried to step in, but he couldn't save her.

Chelsey (Flutterby) said...

Don't sweat it, Ginger. I mean, that's sweet of you and all, but I"m ok, really. *kicks her skateboard up* I'm good.

Aidan said...

I think it sounds like a good time for a bonfire on the beach. All of us. Jay? What do you think?

Jason said...

Brilliant idea, lordling.

Olivia Harper said...

Brilliant indeed! I'll bring the margaritas and the mojitos.

Jerry said...

Do other people have adventures on a weekly basis? My only claim to tumultuous excitement this past week is that I absolutely, positively did not resist the hungry advances of a sensual voluptuous siren ('cause non advanced...sigh) and did not spill any food at all on my shirt.

Vanessa Pyre said...

Jerry, you might want to think about combining those two failures to make a success. If you spill the right food on your shirt, she might lick it off for you!

Aidan said...

Jerry: Snort.

Try adventures on an HOURLY basis.

Olivia Harper said...

No, Jerry, people around here don't necessarily have adventures EVERY week - well, unless you're Aidan, of course. That's probably why (among other reasons) it's taken my author over eight months to ask us for a character update.

But, in regard to your own recent adventure, I agree with Vanessa. After all, I've been known to lick things off my husband... though I won't go into details here. My children might be listening.

Devi Marconi said...

Or your mother.

Olivia Harper said...

Oops. Sorry, Mom.

Then again, I'm not that sorry - us married folks have to keep it interesting, you know.

Aidan said...

Yeah. (winks at Marenya)

Michael Harper said...

Of course, Aidan. You of all people would understand. Thanks for encouraging my wife's naughty tendencies. *wink*
