The Hero Lost: The Mysteries of Death and Life Anthology is coming soon! My story "Of Words and Swords" is in the anthology and I thought it would be great to introduce my main character with an interview.
Please welcome my character Maud from "Of Words and Swords" to the blog today.
Tyrean: Maud, where did your name come from?
Maud: It is better left unsaid, that which you would have called me in full. It would have made for a different story entirely. Forsooth, I beg of you, do not speak the name.
Tyrean: Mad Maudlin
Maud: Why? Oh, why did you have to remind me?
Tyrean: I liked it. It had a nice ring to it.
Maud: No, no, to live up to a name like that, why I would have had to have been barking at the moon mad.
Tyrean: I thought you liked your words to be lofty and poetic so I thought that Maudlin suited your character.
Maud: Well, I enjoy witty wordplay. But you? You understand plain words and active verbs.
Tyrean: I see. How do you think you came by your poetic moments then?
Maud: There was a reason that they threw a variety of objects at me. If I had my own way –
Tyrean: You don’t.
Maud growls: I know.
Tyrean: If it makes you feel any better, I created your character based on the first lines of a song by a famous group of bardic musicians.
Tyrean: You can listen to it on youtube here:
Maud: That song does have a nice rhythm to it. I guess I can forgive you about the name.
Tyrean: For readers and Maud, please note that only a few lines of the song informed Maud's character, The rest of his story will be revealed in the Hero Lost anthology coming May 2nd.
Maud: I don't have time to wait around until then. I have things to do.
(He straps on both swords and gets on his horse.)
Tyrean: Of course, you may have to --
Maud: Don't say it.
