Treating a character as a real person might be the best start. Next, give him or her a personality of their own, by way of likes and dislikes, small little idiocracies, greatest fears, biggest loves, what makes them vulnerable and best of all – what makes them strong. Brainstorm or let the thoughts flow, but do it your way. It will only add depth to the character and make all the difference to the success of YOUR book.
Today we welcome author Rose Montague, who gives us her take on Jade from Book One of the Three J’Amigos. The best thing about Rose is that she wants to have fun when writing, thus creating fun books to read. Her writing style does not have too much of pretty prose or flowery fluffiness. Her books give you – non-stop action and fun.What could be better than that?
Let me introduce you to Jade as seen through the eyes of Rose. Jade is a detective with a difference – Shifter, Witch, Fae, and Vamp – all thrown into the magic mix. Book One follows Jade as she investigates a case that could destroy both the Faerie and the Human realms. Her primary allies are Rolfe, her partner and a shifter bear and Jill, the Winter Queen of Faerie. On the run, with nowhere to hide will Jade be able to stop a killer or will she become his next victim? This book is all about Magic, Mayhem, and Mystery with the odds stacked against them; it’s three against three hundred.
Now over to the different shades of Jade viewed by her Creator, Rose Montague
Her real nature is hidden even from her friends and is only gradually revealed.
NEVER BEEN KISSED- INNOCENT JADE
Jade is very naive. She is not used to socializing and makes many mistakes in her relationships. From a romantic point of view, she is very innocent. Jade has never been kissed. She thinks she is in love with a shifter bear and does everything she can to be like him in order to attract his attentions. Of course what happens instead is they become best buddies. I think one spoiler everyone knows by now is that she gets the vamp girl instead. That relationship will continue to grow in Book 2 (Jane).
JADE AS A FRIEND
Jade makes friends easily and is very loyal. One of the main themes in Jade is friendship.
She is rich, seriously rich. She loves buying clothes, and she always goes for the best. That’s part of the fun as well.
Despite her money and her various talents, she has some flaws. Her body needs a lot of fuel and will tolerate only certain things. Red wine is one thing she likes and dark coffee and dark chocolate. A good breakfast for Jade is a six shot espresso and a chunk of chocolate. She orders wine by the bottle, not the glass. Steak-Jade likes her steak crispy on the outside and red and juicy on the inside. And of course, blood, human blood. Just about anything else will make her violently ill. If she doesn’t get fed on a regular basis she gets weak and sometimes passes out.
FUN ADVENTURES IN DRIVING WITH JADE
She can’t drive worth poop. Despite her great reflexes, eyesight, hearing, and reaction times, she has this problem with running into and over things. She had to use her magic to cheat in order to pass a driving test. One of the many humorous things in Jade is a car chase in which she is driving. To find out more about Jade you will have to read the book. I think you will be surprised as her secrets are revealed.
