Thank you, Krysten for inviting me on this tour!
As part of the tour we introduce a character to you. I'm going to introduce Victoria to you. She is the main character in my new young adult book, My Rebellion Checklist, which is being shopped around to publishers as we speak.
What is the name of your character? Is he/she fictional or a historic person?
My character is Victoria (Tori) Matherson. She is a fictional eighteen year old.
When and where is the story set?
The story is set in current times and they live in a fictional town in Vermont.
What should we know about him/her?
Victoria is a type A personality all the way. She loves nothing more than organization and lists. Lots of lists! A trip to Staples could get her high!
What is the main conflict? What messes up him/her life?
Victoria's life starts to spiral out of control--something she's not at all accustomed too--when three major life events happen all at once. Her boyfriend breaks up with her, she gets into a near fatal car crash and her parents announce they're getting a divorce. BAM! Victoria's neat, planned, organized life is now a mash up of heartache, disorder and rehabilitation.
What is the personal goal of the character?
Victoria's personal goal--which she's blatantly unaware of--is to learn to let go. There are things in life you can't change. You also can't change yourself into something you're not. Your authentic self is always going to win out over any facade you try to put out to the world. Life is not about what happens to you so much as how you react to it.
Is there a working title for this book and can we read more about it?
The title is My Rebellion Checklist. If you follow me on my wattpad account you should be able to find some chapters to read for free!
When can we expect to see this book?
Well, that's up in the air! My agent is currently querying this to major publishers. Five large publishing houses have requested full reads. Hopefully I should know something by next month!
Thanks so much for joining me on the character blog hop!
