Today was my latest interview. I was asked to join a literaty group to answer some questions about my work and my characters. Enjoy!


The Interpreter: Author Interview: Courtney Conant

Shah Sight - ‎Courtney Conant, Accept our warm welcome on our live show today, we are so pleased to have you with us on this show. As many of our audience know about you, we leave asking you to say something about yourself at the end, now we would love you to introduce your main characters in The Blood Moon of Winter, please?

Courtney Conant - Thank you so much for having me here! I'm glad to be a part of the group and to get a chance for this interview...

Regarding my characters from BMoW, there is really only one main character and one secondary (though he does become more andmore prominent throughout).

Liliana Makay, my MC, takes the leading role as your average, everyday woman attempting to make her way through life as best she knows how. Life is normal until she begins dreaming of another world. The more she dreams, the more she comes to find out that she is actually not dreaming but that the world really does exist and she is slowly being brought over to it.

Courtney Conant - Now Jason Caurns, a handsome author who just happens to walk into Lily's life, only plays a minor role in the first book. However, in the second, he holds a much larger part.

Shah Sight - We know Jason, as an handsome author as you describe it yourself, Courtney, does Jason being what he is, especially being an author, plays any specific role into the main story, why did you chose Jason an author, does it help the story flow, does it help Liliana find out the truth about her dreams, tell us the connection please?
Courtney Conant - It's difficult to not give away too much, when describing the connection between the two. Jason just happens to be Lily's favorite author. Though their meeting each other seems purely accidental in the beginning, as the story progresses, it comes to appear as though it was preordained to happen.

They have a deep connection that slowly comes to the forefront and becomes quite prominent (and even more important in the second novel).
