FIREWALKER Countdown Giveaway--COLBY (A Dragon)

I have a winner for Day Five--Judy (magnolias_1)

The FIREWALKER Giveaway continues!

DAY SIX--(a new character) COLBY

Colby to Janet: “You’re bubbling with power, and sooner or later, you’re going to blow. I was willing to give Micky the benefit of the doubt for not offing you, and then I met you.” His smile was gone, his eyes darkening like Mick’s did. “Now I think it wasn’t his fault he couldn’t kill you. I’m betting you wouldn’t let him.”

Meet Colby, another inked biker who can turn into a fire-breathing dragon. He and Mick tangled years and years ago, and parted enemies. Now Colby might be Mick's only chance to survive his coming tests. Janet doesn't trust him, but she has no choice but to work with him.

Colby is dark-haired, blue-eyed, full of muscle and inked all over. He's snarky, smart, and up to something. I introduce him for the first time in FIREWALKER, and you'll see him again in SHADOW WALKER (coming in June).

As I sat down, Mick flashed me a warning look and said, “The magic mirror showed him everything.”
“Everything.” Colby’s grin became a leer. “It was stimulating, even if I had to watch through a lot of cracks.”
My face heated. “I swear I’m melting that thing.”
“Don’t be embarrassed," Colby said. "It was beautiful. Way better than anything I can find on that motel TV.”


I love writing new characters and lots of them. Do you prefer books that focus solely on the H/H with a few characters for spice, or do you like a lot of characters, with depth, running around?

Lots of characters for me. And follow up books about those characters which I always am eager to know more about. I love when authors wet my appetite with new character teases.

I like to learn about the main two characters and then bring the other characters in, and then maybe have a book which goes with the secondary characters as the main character.

Colby is my kind of character!!!

I generally don't mind characters other than the lead hero/heroine, but if they get really interesting I start wanting their novels sooner or later!

Like now, for instance. Rawr, I want to know more about Colby.

Great description of Colby.

Most of my favorite stories have a pretty good collection of characters or side kicks. Like the interaction and the possible spin off for future stories.

I think it depeneds on the author. Sometimes they can balance it so that the H/H get plenty of spotlight while the other characters do get their time too. Other times, I just get too confused with everyone.

Either is fine with me :-)

The more the merrier! But I agree with what some people have said about wanting the secondary characters to have their own story if they get really interesting.

I think I'm gonna like Colby!

I usually like lots of different characters because it makes the story easier to follow, in terms of perspective!

I'm all about a good size cast of characters. As long as the series continues to flesh them out and allows them to be more than props. Like everyone else said, lets the series to more opportunities to branch out.

Loved, loved, loved Stormwalker and can't wait for Firewalker!!!!

I enjoy both types. As long as the cast of characters isn't too long and confusing, I enjoy a variety of characters.

I like having in-depth secondary characters. It gives the story a more soild feel. I like it when they compliment the h/h characters, because you get a better feel for the h/h.

I like lots of characters and seeing them grow through a series. Colby sounds like fun!

I prefer more characters that develop as the story goes along with possible additional books to learn even more about some of the secondary characters that have become quite interesting.
