Aveza of the Ercanhelm Character Interview

I’m so excited to share this! My friend Rebekah has a new book out called “Aveza of the Ercanhelm” and so I’m doing a character interview for her story. Aveza (as seen in the beautiful art below) is  both the MC and the name of the title. Below you can find the Q and A. Check out the book coming TOMORROW (Oct 7)! And check out Rebekah at rebekahdevall.wordpress.com

What do you like most about the Ercanhelm?

The Ercanhelm, from the beginning, were a family. The Ercanhelm are a haven. The Ercanhelm live on, in this world but not of it. Beatings, rapes, prostitution… deaths every day. But Ercan and his people live on. Ercan accepted me as one of His own children. The Ercanhelm did as well.

 

What do you dislike the most?

I dislike Hagan’s oppression. He has made our city and our people… nay. I dislike Hagan, stepfather or not, and that is all I will say on that matter.

 

Any place you’re scared of?

Tell no one, but I fear the palace. So many secrets are hidden between those walls… so many dark stories from my past.

 

Can you tell me one secret that no-one knows about you?

So many secrets. The only one I can tell you without endangering myself is this: my name has no meaning, just as, for much time, my life had no meaning.

 

What about personal fears?

There is little of which I am not afraid, and I hate it.

 

Who do you trust in your world? Why?

Falk. We have trained together for many years and he has never betrayed me.

 

Do you have any hobbies? 

I must admit I enjoy archery, though especially to relieve stress.

 

What do you wish to discover the most about Ercanhelm?

Whether or not they will kill me when they discover who I am.

 

What thing do you like the most about yourself?

I am strong. Despite my appearance, I am strong.

 

Dislike?

I hate this fear that cripples me, that forces me to hide myself. Fear makes me weak.

 

Lastly, if there was one thing you want to do or one place you want to go what/where would that be?

I would go to the Haven, outside the city. I would trail my feet in the water of the creek and breathe, for the first time in ten years. I would spend time speaking with my God, Ercan, and forget all the darkness that continually envelops my heart.

Treehouse Dreams

If Sam and Slayer ever had a house, ever found the time to stop the war waging on all fronts and learned how to battle the demons raging in their minds, this would be it. Because for The Leader of the Legercharms and her Protector, they could never have a real house. They would always have battles to win and monsters to beat.

So they would find a house, deep into the forest and carve a home with Sam’s magic and Slayer’s strength. Windows would be added, to see the outside world, but no welcome mat would be placed in front of the blue door that Slayer kept telling Sam wasn’t blue but brown on the stone steps molded by Sam. Sam wouldn’t listen about the color of the door and would attempt to hang up a police call sign; Slayer would keep taking it down because they were in hiding. For that would be the only way they could live as happily ever after as they could.

They would have to be alone. Hiding from the crowded world and trying to hew out a piece of some semblance of a life. Some moment in an infinite number of seconds to try to, one day, live as comfortably and peacefully as any good Baggins should.
