Happy Official Book Birthday to Lacrimosa
From Christine: I am so excited to be here with Heather today, celebrating the release of LACRIMOSA. Heather is featuring a special interview with Aydan. Take it away Heather:
Heather: Welcome, Aydan. To start, why don't you tell us a little about yourself:
Aydan: As Christine mentioned earlier this week, I am a member of Azza's army - an UnHoly. I'm the best at what I do, the best at procuring souls for my master, Azza, and the best at maintaining order among the dark creatures.
Heather: So you're evil, then. That's all. Pure Evil?
Aydan: [swallows hard] Yes. Well, no. Shoot, that is a harder question for me than it seems. [swallows again while opening and closing his fists several times] I am evil. And I am bound to Azza and all that he stands for. But it is not the sum-total of me. At least not yet.
Heather: So there is more to you? Tell me about that.
[Aydan opens his mouth to speak, only to slam it shut. He closes his eyes and releases a ragged breath]
Heather: *hides a shudder* Okay, let's move on. It is rumored that you were in love once. A long time ago. Can you tell me about that.
[Aydan's head snaps up, his eyes narrowing on Heather. His expression hardens, as tears fill his eyes.]
Aydan: This was a mistake. [he gets up to leave] I have to go. Now. [Aydan walks out without another word]
Christine: Sorry Heather, Aydan's having a hard day. He doesn't like talking about her. It's too hard. His descent into evil happened because of the love he harbored or her - a love he wasn't supposed to feel. Ever. Maybe it's best if we leave it this way and let the readers decide about Aydan. I would just like to say, though, that for all his bravado and whatnot, he has been my favorite character to write to date.
Heather: Sounds good. Let Aydan know that I didn't mean to cross any lines with him. [fear forms in her eyes]
Christine: Don't worry, Heather. He isn't on the hunt much these days - at least, I "think" he isn't it...
