I created this graphic for my computer background because it inspires me. This is one of Kara’s quotes from The Tomb of Blood (the book I’m working on right now). Now, I know most of you don’t know much about Kara yet (aside from what I might have told on here or social media, of course) because she wasn’t in The Stone of the Eklektos. But there is a reason that she is my favorite character.
I can easily say that out of all of the characters in my books, I relate most to Rose. She shares my insecurities, my quirks, and even many of my past experiences. Because of that, she holds a special place in my heart, and she’s often a source of inspiration to me, especially when she faces her fears with determination and courage that I don’t always have.
But if I had to name the character that inspires me the MOST, it would be Kara. She has her fair share of flaws, of course, like all of my characters, but she’s strong in areas that I’m not. Kara is so confident and so sure of herself, and she always knows exactly what she’s doing. She doesn’t let anyone tear her down, discourage her, or silence her.
Basically, she’s the opposite of me. And I love her for it.
Not to mention, she’s an awesome, badbutt warrior, and you can’t NOT inspired by her badbuttery. (Wow, that’s probably the dorkiest word I’ve ever created.)
Anyway, this image inspires me during my most insecure moments, so I figured I’d share it with you. 🙂
P.S. – In honor of the holidays, I am sharing an excerpt from The Tomb of Blood later. So, keep an eye out for that! 😉
